Question Male mommy??

Yeah, weird title right?
Well I have a 2yo black lab that I take to my barn almost every day. We have two kittens that are out and about, they used to hiss and swat at him, but now they let him REALLY close.
Is it odd that it snuffles them and licks and nibbles on them? My instructor thinks he's preening them, but isn't that weird because he's a boy?
He really likes to "chew" the one kitten, he won't pick it up, but he kinda puts his whole mouth around it and holds it. He does the same thing to me when he doesn't want me to leave.
Should I keep him away from them, or just keep a close eye?

It sounds like he really loves them, and he probably feels like he needs to protect them. Sky did the same with a filly born at the place he was at. He would protect her and clean her and stuff.

I have a male cat and when I got a new kitten it started trying nursing on him and my male let it. I gess it just comforted it or somthing because the moma cat got killed before they were weaned.

I'm hoping to get some tomorrow.
I think my dog is a little racist.. He only chews on the black kitten, not the stripey grey one.

I have two kittens and a Mim Pin right now. This was the first time my dog has been around kittens and she was super over-interested, so I kept them separated for the first few weeks. Then I introduced them slowly. Funny thing is she was only wanting to "mother" them but I didn't know that for sure! So now she cleans them and cuddles them and tries to get them to nurse her non-existant teats. I also had a male Malamute when I was a kid that would try to mother the kitties
