So as we are slowly introducing Lucy and Buddy, Lucy constantly licks his ear (inside of it) what does that mean exactly? he doesnt seem to mind it but we dont get why she does it?

No idea why they do it but Midge our oldest and dominant girl tends to lick the ears of the younger girls, they just stand there excepting it. Previous to this when Midge shared with Sherbet she used to lick Sherbet's eyes. Sherbet used to have cataracts and glaucoma. I've always thought it was just Midge being abit odd.
