365-255 Does this look like punishment?

It is.  Trixie is a compulsive licker.  Left unchecked, there are times she will lick her paw to the point of licking all the hair off one little spot.  So we keep an eye (and ear, she's a loud licker) on her.  Trixie is also a burrowing creature.  She loves to be under blankets and pillows.  Usually, if I catch her paw licking under the covers, I tell her stop and she does.  However, if she doesn't stop licking her paw, I tell her that she "has lost head under the covers privileges," and reposition the blanket like this.  It's the punishment, and she knows it.

What an adorable shot.
My dog is a licker too, but now that she old, she has arthritis and 3 bad discs on her back..... which means when she licks too much she can't move with so much pain.
