    Not gonna happen here! Now on the other hand, My type A personality daughter and SIL for whom everything must be 'proper' allow their dogs to do so. I eat on paper plates at their home. Dogs are able to reach too many of their body parts with their tongues in addition to the extraneous crap they will eat. No, I don't let my dogs kiss me either. [​IMG]

    Wait, I'm confused! I thought that was one of the reasons for having a dog, to do the pre-wash! Heck, most of the time my lab mix gets the plates so clean that they can go right back to the cabinet!!!

    Sour, Bingo shreds the paper plates and then I've got to clean that mess up. It's much easier to use real plates!

    Of course they do! Dishes are much easier to clean in hot soapy water once the dogs are through AND it makes the dogs so happy.
