Why do dogs lick pillows?

Ok, so this is an interesting one.  Whenever I forget to close the bedroom door open there is a huge risk that the dog will take matters into his paws, head off to bed and wait for his humans.  Now whilst his bed is in the master bedroom, he often decides to jump up on our bed and for some reason licks our pillow cases, leaving little damp patches all over the case.

This is very frustrating as the last thing I want to be doing at night before bed is having to change the pillow cases.  I’m guessing he is seeking salt from the perspiration (sounds gross I know) but he does it more in summer so this must be the reason.  Potato chips are also one of his favourite treats!
