My Boston Terrier Coco Chanel loves to lick French kiss The Whole Nine Yards. She even gives hugs. my son holds her in his arm and she wrapped her arms around him while licking him. I would not change her for nothing.


My 3 Boston Terriers lick my wife and I like crazy! We love them. Iโ€™m a Boston Terrier Daddy and theyโ€™re my boys. Everything they do is so funny and silly!


My 4 year old Boston will lick ya to death if you let it but more annoying is the snoring! Does yours? It’s really funny!


I have a 4 yr old and have known her even before she left it’s mother at 4 wks and named her Dolly and picked her up from a friend who breeds in Winnipeg MB Canada! Very loyal dog and I take her trucking with me and have NEVER had to put a leash on cuz she’s very obedient and stays by my side! Doesn’t sleep in my bed in the truck or at home cuz discipline prevails with my animals as there must be rules as there like your child! And the licking will always be to a limit… Read more »

My 4 year old female licks my legs and feet constantly. She also licks my lips and face and tries to get in my mouth. She has done this since we rescued she and her dog mom. Boston Terrier is now the only breed for me.

After ours licks me several times, I tell her Mommy loves you too sweetie and she will stop. She is the sweetest little thing. My first indoor furbaby.

I once counted how many times in a row my Grace licked me. I quit counting at 400. Wonder what the record is?

Thank you for clarifying this! I can deal with a little licking, but the excessive licking drives me nuts! My Boston licks me if I have lotion on or not. He will lick my clothes, my couch, my sheets, shoes, whatever. I will now have a little more patience. I even sprayed some of my clothes with that bitter stuff, but it didn’t stop him. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Gotta love them!

Lu Cherry

It’s kinda funny coz I can totally tell the difference between the kind of licks. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
