today i was laying on the couch reading a book. sophie came up and started to lick my face, so i let her go to see what she would do. she sneakily climbed on top of me while licking my ENTIRE face, then licked all the exposed skin on my arms and hands. when she was done, she rubbed the side of her face on me a few times and laid on top of me. i let her slide because of the high cuteness factor, but normally being on the couch is a no-no. she laid on top of me for a long time. she is a total cuddle bug.
I think that is part of most beagles DNA. Tucker doesn't lick your face, but he does enjoy lap time. He has to have it everyday. When he is on your lap he will look up into your eyes with the most adoring look that would melt anyone.
