Wt behind the ears

Posted by Peter Summons on September 22, 2008 at 07:52

Would "wet behind the ears" have any reference to a young animal (kitten, puppy) whose mother carries it by the neck to transport it until it is old enough to do it by itself (and the neck and behind the ears would be wet)?
