Default Air licking?

Adam does this thing sometimes where he sticks his head up in the air and just licks the air (sticks his tongue out really far!) for about 10-15 secs. Anybody elses chi do this or have any ideas?
I did think he might have licked something wierd but he can be just sitting there and start. I get worried coz it does look abit neurological, I youtubed fly biting syndrome and dont think its that, he doesnt bite at all.
Thoughts, folks??

I really don't know if it's related to something neurological or not. When I read your post it immediately made me think of a video I'd seen a while back: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lBQWUR3u7U

Have you spoken to your vet about it yet?

Diefie does this too but i always think he's just tasting the air
smell and taste is closely linked so if there's a particularly delicious smell wafting around, why not go the whole hog and try to lick it?

My chi doesn't do this, but my friend's grandmother's Peke does. I'm not sure why, and sometimes she will do it really close to your face or above your head without actually licking you, just the air. Does your chi tend to do it when they are excited or just randomly?

Will defo mention it to the vet next time I go. Its probably just part of his general weirdness like singing along with the Family Guy theme tune and Westie humping!!
