so you don't think it's a sign that he's going to turn into a man-eating beast, right? it's amazing to me how much more serious dog ownership is as an adult than it was as a kid. as a kid, dogs would play bite and i thought they were playing so i'd get more rough. as a parent, i'm all "OMGZ he's going to eat my face whilst i sleep!" well sort of. emotionally i'm just calm, intellectually i'm wondering if it's a warning sign. i just need to chillax. i also hate face licking. "dude you just licked your balls. oh don't pretend you didn't! i saw you!" thankfully, he usually only licks hands and such.
