I don’t know much about her bloodline. She was rescued off the mean streets of St. Louis, but if I were a betting woman LaRue probably comes from a long, distinguished line of lickers.
She has actually made licking an art form. Like an artist, her brush is her little tongue…licking her way through our house. My sleek leather couch, toes, the cold ceramic bathtub, kitchen cabinets are all her canvas.
Her licking technique varies depending on what she’s licking. If you blink your eyes, you could miss a lick here or there.
I am not totally convinced LaRue didn’t invent Lickety Stik. It is truly an ingenious dog treat and is absolutely perfect for LaRue. I can be in another room, and when I shake the bottle the sound of her little nails trotting across our hardwood floors sounds like a little tap dancer. She stands at attention, and goes to town.
LaRue’s addition to Lickety Stik is serious. I really don’t think LaRue could live without this roll-on of deliciousness. Her licking may drive me crazy at times, but hey it beats chewing up my shoes.
