Doesn't licking of paws indicate that your dog may have a food allergy? I've noticed Sadie is licking her paws more the past couple of weeks. It's been awhile since we've bathed her, I'm gonna try that first. As you guys know we've changed alot of foods because of Charlie. He has a sensitive stomach and is prone to loose stool. Now my next question, sorry if it's disgusting, is how many times a day do your dogs poop? Charlie will be 2 in March and Sadie will be 1 in March and both crap 3 times a day. If Sadie's really active, 4 times!
