My dog is 15 months and still suckles on a pillow or a stuffed animal. He puts the pillow in his mouth and pushes on the pillow with his paws. He also wimpers while he does it. It looks like he is trying to drink his mother milk like he is a puppy. Its the cutest thing, but I was wondering if anyone elses dog does or did that at his age?

???

Teddie is a sucker. Never tries to suckle her mother but does suck a soft ball and a sheet.

I have a male pup that comes back for boarding and would suckle his mother while she is standing up until he was about 17 months old.

I was very surprised that Miya put up with this - but she did. Of course I would stop the behavior when ever I caught him at it.

Baloo never sucks on anything. I have seen him suckle a few times in his sleep. Soooo sweet. :angel:

We adopted a barn cat as a pretty young kitten when I was in highschool. He acted super tough, but the tip of his tail was always wet because he nursed himself to sleep. It was very convenient - he never lost his pacifier ;)
