Ok, so Cole is/has been losing his baby teeth. We have spent a crazy amount of money on teething toys/items (soft, hard, frozen, you name it!). Recently he has taken to chewing on Roscoe's ears! He is not hurting him in any way and Roscoe just lays there and lets him do it!
This goes on for long periods of time and Roscoe's ears wind up all slimy and gross!
Anyone have a similar experience?

Spock and Bones love to clean one another's ears, sometimes to excess. Stop making out with your sibling's ear! is a common cry around our house. It's sweet, but it also sounds gross.

Well, Jersey is an only child so she doesn't have another dogs ears to chew on. However, when she was a puppy, she would chew on her own ears. It was too funny. She'd lay on her side and let her ear fall into her mouth and start to chew on it.

I do think it's rather common though for dogs to chew/lick/groom each others ears.

You know, I thought Casie was the only one who did that, but he seems to be constantly cleaning Cobi's ears, and then biting on them. To make matters worse, Case will bite at Cobi's ankles in the tender spot and then on his lips...it's like anything that can be painful is open game. We've had to separate them, but then found out from our breeder friend, that this is normal for pups as a sign of submission...well somethings are normal and somethings are gross...this ranks with gross and ornery.

Molly chews her own ears! She rolls around until she can catch one and then chews on it. She sometimes walks around with it in her mouth. I find that if I take a cloth with some mild soap and clean the ear, she stops doing it. I think they are itchy.

Oh yeah, all of ours have chewed/licked/cleaned each other's ears. Cassie did it to Roscoe, Duke did it to both of them and Violet does it to Duke.

Funny thing is when Phoebe, the cat, gets in on the ear cleaning. She usually only does Cassie (and Roscoe when he was still with us), but she will literally bury her head in their ear! You can almost hear her thoughts, Disgusting dogs, can't clean yourselves and I have to clean your ears for you!
