Well this morning I was drinking my cappuccino with whipped cream on it.. Like the 

normal routine, I was snuggled back into bed with my lap top table over my lap, enjoying

the net and sipping my cappuccino.

  AS ALWAYS I GOT SOME CREAM ON MY LIPS SO LICKED THEM WITH MY TONGUE UP OVER ACROSS THE

TOP AND DOWN BELOW ON MY CHIN, UNDER MY LIP... AS I ENJOYED MY FIRST COUPLE SIPS ROCKY

MY DOG JUMPS UP ONTO MY BED, ACROSS MY LAP, TURNS, AND PLANTS HIMSELF RATHER ROUGHLY IN

POSITION TO WHEEZE MY WHIPPED CREAM FROM THE TOP OF THE CUP! HE LOOKED INTENTLY AT THE

CUP AS I SEARCHED HIS EYES AND MISCHIEVOUS FACE. I ASKED HIM, "DO YOU WANT TO WHEEZE

THE CREAM..?" LOL. HE COCKED HIS HEAD SIDEWAYS, NEVER REMOVING HIS EYES FROM MY CUP. I

RAISED THE CUP, HIS EYES AND HEAD, FOLLOWED. I LOWERED THE CUP, HE MOVED HIS HEAD DOWN

EVER SO SLIGHTLY HIS STARE MORE INTENSE THEN EVER! I ASKED AGAIN, "DO YOU WANT TO WHEEZE

THE CREAM..?" LOL. HE LOOKED AT ME, KEEPING A FAST HARD LOCK ON MY CUP. I PICKED UP MY

LEFT ARM, AND SANK MY INDEX FINGER DOWN THROUGH THE CREAM. HE WATCHED INTENTLY HIS

FACE FILLED WITH INTENSE EXCITEMENT.. HIS EYES TWINKLED LIKE A CHILD'S EYES.. I

MOVED THE FINGER FULL OF WHIPPED CREAM JUST IN FRONT OF HIS NOSE...HE STARED HARD AT MY

FINGER... I SAID, OKAY, WHEEZE THE CREAM....LOL..AND WITHOUT BATTING AN EYE HIS TONGUE

WHIZZED FROM HIS MOUTH WRAPPING MY INDEX FINGER IN AN INTENSE SUCKLING ACTION AS HE

REMOVED EVERY TRACE OF CREAM FROM MY FINGER! NOW, FINGER ALL CLEAN, HE CLEANED HIS LIPS

AND SNOUT OF THE CREAM. TONGUE OUT OVER TO THE RIGHT, SLIDING IT OUT FURTHER AT THE

CORNERS AND MOVING UP AND AROUND THE TOP OF HIS NOSE, AND TO THE LEFT, AND BACK IN

A REPEATED MOTION UNTIL IT WAS CLEAN ... ALL EXCEPT ONE SPOT! HIS GOATEE AREA,

UNDERNEATH HIS CHIN.

    AS I WATCHED, I HAD NOTICED SOMETHING ODD. SO I POKED A DIFFERENT FINGER INTO THE

CREAM AGAIN. WITH THE SMALL AMOUNT ON MY FINGER, I PURPOSELY ADDED IT TO THE GOATEE AREA

AND NOSE! ONCE AGAIN HE REPEATED THE SAME CLEANING ROUTINE LEAVING THE GOATEE AREA FULL

OF CREAM.. I HAD REALIZED, THAT HE COULD BEND HIS TONGUE DOWN, TO SWIPE BELOW IS LOWER

JAW AREA IN THE SAME MANNER AS HE COULD TO CLEANS THE TOP.

    SO WHY IS IT, THAT HIS TONGUE ONLY CURLS UP, AND WOULD NOT DROP DOWN LIKE I CAN MAKE

MY TONGUE DO...?

   WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT A DOGS TONGUE, THAT MAKES IT UNABLE TO DO THIS? 

   IS IT JUST MY DOG...?

   IS HE JUST A WEIRDO DOG OR WHAT!

   IF YOU KNOW THE REASONS WHY, WILL YOU PLEASE ENLIGHTEN ME?

I see this picture but does the same hold true with every dog. I am talking about cleaning his beard area.. Rocky cannot reach that area with his tongue.. I tried several things to get him to clean it but his tongue stops on the side and moves up and around the top of his muzzle snout area over the lips.
