Oh, Bite Me!

"Today is my first day alone since sometime in mid December."

When I wrote those words this morning it made today, a day of solitude, even sweeter.

How am I going to celebrate? I am going to thoroughly enjoy cleaning house today, especially the bathroom. I noticed Pug hair on the bathroom counter the other day. When I commented on it to dearest one, he told me he lets Yoga Pup sit up there while he shaves. He lifted Yoga Pup up on the counter to show me and that darn dog promptly went for my toothbrush! Dearest one quickly moved the container to the other side of the sink saying, "If I don't do that he licks the toothbrushes." I shudder to think how many times I've unkowingly put a Pug licked toothbrush in my mouth.

Dearest one reminded me that the inside of a dog's mouth is cleaner than a human's. He went on to say that a human bite will give you a nasty infection far sooner than a dog bite. And while that is true it doesn't make me feel one bit better about sticking that toothbrush in my mouth. Which, now that I think of it, I'm still doing.

Oh, well. While looking for an appropriate photo for this post I came across many pug photos that made me laugh out loud, including this one:

Have a great day! Don't forget to brush your teeth. Three times.

Brilliant post...very cute that he includes yogapup in his daily routine though! Very sweet actually.

I have said to people that with three shedding pugs in the house that pug hair is considered a condiment...:-)

A dog's mouth may be cleaner than a human's, BUT I have seen all the places on their own bodies that dogs lick.


Have a beautiful day of solitude.

I know, even with all the places a dog can lick their mouth is STILL cleaner than a humans when it comes to bacteria, etc.

Makes me shudder though. :)

Cute photo! I can relate to your post. I just put the last of a long string of house guests on the plane on Tuesday.

I hate to contradict Dearest One, but the opposite is true about a dog's mouth--especially of dogs who are fed raw meat on a regular basis. Germ City, in other words. Of course, the Pugsters aren't getting any of that, are they? Or maybe that is a question that I ought not to have asked, for the sake of your domestic relational equilibrium... {mischievous grin}
