Do you share food with your dog?

I’m not talking about a table scrap thrown to the floor for them to enjoy and get diarrhea later. I’m speaking of something I’m seeing more often in public. People giving dogs their own ice cream cone and sharing a table at a restaurant. Yes, there are dining establishments that now have portions of their menu dedicated to dogs. Drive thru banks having dog treats in addition to lollipops for your children.

What I saw today disturbed me. A grown man with a shaved ice treat sitting on a bench at an outlet mall sharing it with a standard poodle. One cup and two spoons. There is a myth that a dog’s mouth is clean. But in reality, it’s only clean for them since their saliva may or may not contain antiseptic and antibacterial properties. They can still reach their testicles and butt hole and they may have just finished off a serving of gnat butter before you dipped their spoon into your dessert.
