As a microbiologist, I’m very much against the beagle
being anywhere near my family licking my face.
I don’t allow it. You simply don’t know where that tongue has just been.
And so that’s just another of the many, many reasons that the above situation could (thankfully) never occur Chez 6000…
And before you ask further household/canine hygiene based questions:
1. Lots and lots of hand-washing.
2. No. Not in the bedrooms.
3. No. There’s no point in having the 5-second rule, because:
a) It’s based on crappy science, and
b) The beagle eats anything that gets dropped on the floor within 5 seconds anyway.
4. No. Of course I can’t reach them. It’s just a cartoon. Jesus.
All good? Great. Happy to have been of assistance.
