    I wish my dogs would do that.... instead, they get too long and end up scratching me until I get them clipped.

    My dog did that once; while I was clipping my toenails he just wolfed one down, and I was disgusted.. Weird dog. He loves the smell of earwax too..

    :barf;

    Spunky did that in Rocko's Modern Life, I thought it was just him but dogs actually do that? Learn somethin' new everyday.

    My dog loves licking my feet - it doesn't matter if they're dirty and sweaty, or fresh from the shower. He loves my toes! :D
