Confused Dog Doesn’t Know How To Lick

West Highland terriers are generally quick to learn – but this little fellow clearly needs more practice in the licking department.

The footage shows the Westie trying to lick its owner’s nail-varnished hand and failing miserably.

The one-year-old male puppy, from Omaha, Nebraska, appears to have briefly mastered the action. However, it then launches into a flicking, rather than licking, motion with the tip of its tongue flapping on the underside of the woman’s hand.
