Why do people think it's funny when pets lick their owners mouths?

I love to watch America's Funniest Videos, but cannot stand the ones where the owner's let their animals lick them in their mouths! It's gross! Don't they know where those tongues have been? ICK!!

And I hate those little dogs who snarl and bare their teeth when someone picks them up. Like the little chihuahua ones. They need some training or a good whack on the nose with a rolled up newspaper! Just kidding! But they really shouldn't be encouraged to display that behavior. It makes for a bad situation for all involoved.

Anyone agree? Disagree?

  • Uh ok. My dogs are trained, and one of the things they are trained to do is give me a kiss. I have no problem with it. Haven't you heard that dogs mouths are cleaner than humans??

  • I think dog kissing on the lips is disgusting. I think chiuauas can be nasty. My cousins cute chiuaua bit me at Thanksgiving. I still have the scar. Little b__!

  • I don't think that's funny, I think it's disgusting. Just because a dogs mouth has less germs does not make it less disgusting. Dogs will eat their own poo and lick their butts and other areas, and its icky -.-

  • you can get worms from doing that so NO IT IS NOT CUTE/ FUNNY if your dog licks their butt hole, they have intestinal worms ( not all dogs do but if they do) they get the eggs in their poo and then onto their tongue and mouth, then they lick in your mouth you can get intestinal/ stomach worms too. very very gross!!!!! i love my dog but she doesn't lick your face. only hands sometimes when really begging for food, it is sick to me.!

  • just because dogs have less bacteria in their mouths does not make them cleaner than humans, humans brush, floss and hopefully rinse daily cleaning thier mouths, most people never even brush their dogs teeth, it is unclean!!
