I was just wondering if my pug is theo nly one that licks everything in sight. We're talkin leather couches, canvas couches, my pillow, my feet, strangers' feet, her feet, my beagle, the console in my car, etc. etc.

Any ideas as to why? Just curious....it's not causing any problems but it's a little weird.

Mani has definately an oral fixation. Licking is his way to say he loves you, he´d missed you, he´s hungry, happy, bored, relaxed, cold, tired or almost everything.
My 5 months old pug is licking our faces at all times, somethimes also our hands...Before I found this website I thought that it was definityely sth wrong with him.
Our pug loves to lick the carpet.
At first it was because we had dropped something and she was cleaning it up and now she just does it all over the place. Maybe it's because she thinks she will find another tasty spot, but it drives me crazy.
I guess it's just a puggy thing or a general doggy thing.
Who knows?
My fawn pug, Gracie, licks everything, too, but my black pug, Gigi, only licks me or other folks. Gigi doesn't lick objects at all unless it's food that she is just tasting.
In the world of Pugdom, this is not weird behavior. Pugs like to lick EVERYTHING. From you to all the above mentioned items. As long as what she licks is not poisonous, then by all means, let her lick. It's whatever makes her happy, right?!
Oscar licks everything my husbands face and feet,he does this for about 10 min also our sheets so when we get t bed they are wet!!! the carpet, pillows , the couch!!! i thought there was sumthing wrong with him but i dont think so , just think its the pug breed there way of sayin i love u ,thank u, the things they cant say t us.
Matilda licks the comforter on the bed for a good 10 minutes before she will settle down and sleep. It gets so loud and sloppy sounding sometimes I jiggle her to make her quit. It doesn't really work though. She also likes to lick metal and wood. I am glad to read what other pugs lick, she doesn't seem quite as odd now.
Hahaha... my silly pug does the same thing. She even licks the air when there's nothing else to lick!!
Nah, Milo has licked he paint off of my bedroom wall. there's a certain spot he used to like and hed lick and lick and the paint came off. then he had a go at the plaster ._.

He also likes licking my trousers or other people trousers, will lick the hands of anyone who approaches and also the face. the floor also, if he sees a spot on the floor hell lick and nibble it for ages. totally mesmerized. Him and peawee like to lick eachothers tongues after a drink of water. Peawees not as licky as Milo but still does it.
No he is not the only one. Pugs live to lick!!! If my pug Gracie cannot connect with something physical to lick, she licks the air!!!! lol!
They are licking machines.  Mine just went from my forearm to my foot.  The other constantly licks the floor and the leather furniture.
Sadie has issues with anyone being upset so if there is any raised voices (even on TV), she will flatten out her ears and start to lick the air. I have also seen her lick or taste things to find out what they are but honestly Sadie will lick you to death, Jake licks Pat or his bear bear forever. We call it being "freshened up" as it very often this obsessive licking happens after we come back from a day out. :)

"If you have a new baby, I don't think a puppy would be a good choice.  Both take a lot of time.  Perhaps adopt an older pug?"
