Yawning and licking lips when close to our faces
I've been learning about calming signals/ behaviors of dogs and I have read that yawning and licking lips is a calming signal when a dog feels stressed/ overwhelmed and wants to calm the situation. But, Stark will come jump up to us and put himself on our chests (when were laying in bed) and want attention. He clearly puts himself in the situation, he is happy, wagging butt happy. But, he gets in our faces and yawns, and licks his lips and displays all of the signs of trying to calm the situation. So, Im wondering if he really is stressed or if he is doing those things for other reasons? I really don't think he is stressed, he does this about everyday and he seems to be thrilled.
