  • Dogs mouths are supposed to actually be cleaner than a humans because they produce a very slight antiseptic that kills some of the bacteria. Of course it's still disgusting.

  • OH! I am right there with you! It is so NASTY! I don't find it cute... I find it completely repulsive and definitely think less of a parent that allows it.

  • I understand why you think its disgusting, but I really don't mind it as long as the dog doesn't lick the baby's lips. Bleah! But babies are washable. Just my opinion. : )

  • I think its disgusting for dogs to lick anyone. But I'd smack a dog for licking MY baby.

  • We have a medium size dog in the house and he knows not to lick our littlest one but every once in a while he will sneak a smooch and I just wash her face off. He also likes to lick her hands and I dont allow that either right now because babys put there hands in there mouth constantly. So yes I think its grose but after a certain age I think its fine expecially since thats how dogs show there love :)

  • Amelia512, I think thats a little harsh. Hitting a dog because it's showing affection? Yes, I'm against dogs licking a baby's face but you don't punish it for doing that. Instead keep the baby's face out of reach.
