Dog who finish their mouthful then lick their lips before moving away from the water bowl and immediately coming for a cuddle. Why do they do this?! Why can't they finish their mouthful?? Fred takes it one step further by transporting his food (raw meat, organs and bone, and BLOOD) out of his bowl to the other side of the room to place it down before swallowing it. In little chunks. One after the other. Little feckers!
