I don't know about the rest of you, but I actually pause when someone asks me about my profession. Each and every time I'll wage a cerebral war with myself on the pros/cons of telling this complete stranger about what I do, because 75% of the time the next words will be, "So I have this dog...".

A little heads up, please...

Note to owners:

I'm a vet. OK sure, you knew that (or hopefully since you walked into our hospital to see me). As a vet though, I like dogs. And since I like dogs, I don't mind if they lick me, even on the face.

So now that we've cleared that up, if your dog is a frequent poop eater and just happened to eat some feces of any type this morning, please mention it to me BEFORE your dog licks me.

Off to wash my face....

    Ewww!!! I'm not kissing YOU tonight!


  2. Grossness! I bet this happens a lot more than you'd like, too. What a saint you are, truly.

  3. Sadly, you're probably right. And not just poop, but also the long list of other places and things that dogs lick on a daily basis. Maybe I should re-think this "allowing dogs to lick my face" thing...
