Hi Cheryl, thanks for your response.We most commonly associate this type of behavior with allergies. If she's not already taking a medication to help with the licking, please consider one of the following. I prefer Zyrtec, though she may be too small for it: http://cheyennewest.com/antihistamines-for-dogs-cats/The dragging of her rear end on the carpet may either be allergies or a signal that she needs to have her anal glands expressed. I would recommend dropping her by the groomer's location or vets office and having them checked. Be sure to ask your groomer if they do this with each groom that she receives. Some groomers don't offer the service.Once she's feeling better, you can use a product like Eye Envy, who had a beard and foot protocol to whiten stained coats: http://eyeenvy.com/ear-nose-and-beard-systems/If my answer has helped you, please take the time today to leave positive feedback for me.
