    Would your spouse/SO be pissed off at you if you did this?

    A couple nights ago, I was preparing a dish that required me to saute several ingredients separately. Having worked as a dishwasher for years when I was younger, I am sensitive to any process that unnecessarily requires anyone to do more dishes.

    With this in mind, I set 3 bowls from the night before on the floor, let the dog lick them out until they were clean, and used them.

    My wife was annoyed saying it was yucky. My position is that had she not seen the process for cleaning them, she would never be able to tell the difference. Moreover, the ingredients I put in them were too hot for germs, and they were going to be cooked again anyway. If that weren't enough, the only cooties you could get were from the dog and that's like being smooched for all practical purposes.

    My workmates think I'm out of my mind. What say my fellow foosters?

    BTW, I always let the dog lick the spatula after flipping things on the grill -- I like the spatula to be clean at all times. My wife knows I do this and it doesn't bother her.

    When cooking for others I tend to stick to total cleanliness so I'm going for "yucky".

    My dog likes to lick her private parts. Maybe yours is more civilized.

    Oh, she also eats various types of poo she finds in the yard, and drinks out of the toilet on occassion.

    I share food with my dog. She is a dainty princess and takes food off a fork. The same fork I use for my own portion.
    I have also let my dog lick ice cream cones and popsicles that I am not done with yet.
    My dog is not made of poison. I'm fairly certain these practices will not kill me.

    My spouse? I'd puke at the thought! I wouldn't even imagine doing that to her.

    Our terrier has been known to find fine dining snacks in kitty litter. I don't see sharing any food serving items with the aforementioned dog.
    Flying a jet is no different than riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.

    Are you kidding me? Remind me to not accept ANY invite to your house for grub. And for all you who let your dog lick his own arse and then you feed him while he "daintily" takes food from your fork are in serious need of a tune up yourself.

    I'm fine with letting the dog lick the bowls clean, but you should have taken a couple of minutes to properly wash them before reuse.

    Um, I'll pass on the dog-cleaned bowls. I'm not germophobe, but that's a little far for me.

    I love my dogs. They sleep in the bed with me and even lick my face.

    But your nasty.

    I think you might have stumbled upon an excellent concept. I see it now, fine dining establishments with a pack of dogs in the back to clean dishes. Chinese restaurants could start now; they already have the dogs.

    +1 on yucky... regardless if the end product is a perfectly clean plate.

    I don't have a dog, but I concur with these observations from seeing other dogs, I say yucky.

    Let's just say she never smooches me unless she already has a clean butt.

    One thing that did occur to me is that I would find it yucky if a human (including my wife) licked the plates clean instead of the dog. To my knowledge, she doesn't take special care to make sure her butt is clean immediately before which explains the discrepancy.

    I extend such practices with all good doggies. After all, dog saliva is antiseptic. It must be...

    My cats are very clean - they clean their feet that sweep the kitty litter (sometimes tossing out a poo in their quest to find just the right spot ...) and they clean their own selves - and I catch one or the other enjoying ze parfume from the other's ... ya know...

    While I enjoy my cats - and you wouldn't even know I had even one cat here - I would so wash that dish or utensile before I reused it.

    Ewwwww.

    I don't consider utensils or plates that have been licked by anything (dog, human, cat, whatever) to be clean.

    From the CDC:

    "Dogs can carry a variety of germs that can make people sick. Some of these germs are common and some are rare. For example, puppies may pass the bacterium Campylobacter in their feces (stool). This germ can cause diarrhea in people. Puppies and some adult dogs often carry a variety of parasites that can cause rashes or illness in people. Less often, dogs in urban or rural areas can carry the bacterium Leptospira (lep-TO-spy-ruh). This germ causes the disease leptospirosis (lep-to-spi-roh-sis) in people and animals. Dogs can also carry rabies, a deadly viral disease. Rabies from dogs is rare in the United States."

    The article has a list of lovely stuff you can pick up from your dog. Mainly parasites and worms. No thanks.

    The world is a dirty place and the way I live is a big inoculation against all of it. I walk around barefoot, share food with my dog, pick up and eat things that I've dropped on the ground, and don't carry around a pack of bleach wipes like Adrian Monk to sanitize everything I touch. When everyone else has long since died of the common cold and Lysol withdrawl, my dog and I will look out over the ruins and share a meal off the same fork.

    The other advantages of my method are:
    • Ecologically friendly -- significant reduction in water and electricity consumption
    • Fast
    • Quiet
    • Inoculate yourself against a wide variety of germs. Practically nothing can make me sick
    • Best of all, the dog loves it
