I know, I know. I bet you’re shocked that this germ-freak-of-a-mom would let the dog lick Liam in the mouth. Well, I do…but only in moderation. Licking is how Leland (the dog) shows affection. I would hate to yell at him or anything for licking Liam. Plus, I don’t think Liam minds it too much. Just wait until Liam starts pulling fur. Leland will learn not to get too close!
I think they’re already best of friends, especially considering Liam will stop everything he’s doing (including eating) to watch Leland. It’s amazing what smiles a puppy will put on Liam’s face.
