Get the taste off their tongues. 

Sorry no idea, my wife's dog does it so often not just after eating he coughs with the fur in his throat.

Probably a behaviour that harks back to the days of catching and eating prey, some of mine do it too!

We rehomed an ESS 5 weeks ago - soooo fat but we've knocked 3kg off him already - he has a rather unusual habit - he loves to lick my feet, nobody else's but mine, for hours, the more smelly the more he seems to enjoy licking and nibbling any hard spots - it's actually rather relaxing.
