........after the bastard dog has stolen half of it from the serving plate on the kitchen counter!
I don't think it's been slobbered on, it was more of a hit and run!
I'm bloody fuming!

Beamur Sun 16-Jun-13 12:17:04

Mmm. I wouldn't want to eat dinner that had been in a dogs mouth first..

glastocat Sun 16-Jun-13 12:19:22

Ewww no, you can't!

Gay40 Sun 16-Jun-13 12:19:31

Just take off the obviously chewed bits. To be honest, the dog's mouth is probably cleaner than some of your guests' mouths.

Ruprekt Sun 16-Jun-13 12:20:08

I would still serve it!

glastocat Sun 16-Jun-13 12:20:41

God, that's minging!

RhondaJean Sun 16-Jun-13 12:27:01

Yuk. No no dogs mouths can have Ll types of nasties can't they. That's why you need tetanus if they break skin.

Time to ban the dog from the kitchen perhaps?

Morloth Sun 16-Jun-13 12:27:15

Who are you serving it to?

Immediate family (as in me, DH and kids) would do so no worries, close family, I probably would as we are all pretty relaxed.

Not close family, then no.

YNK Sun 16-Jun-13 12:29:12

It's getting served. What they don't know wont harm them! It was carved into (very) thick slices so i think it was only the missing bits that were touched!
At least that's my theory! They are all going Mmmmmmmm, smells lovely, mum. I can't tell them or the dog will die!

Meh, I'd still dish it up.

Blu Sun 16-Jun-13 12:31:08

Oh dear.

Maybe be honest and give your guests the choice?

I would not eat it personally, and I wouldn't give it to DS. There must have been some sort of grabbing, slurping and close contact with the joint as a whole for him to get a chunk off.

Blu Sun 16-Jun-13 12:32:02

<<mental note to self: beware invitations from dog owners>>

YNK Sun 16-Jun-13 12:39:53

There's plenty left, if any of you want to join us!
He is a small terrier who couldn't reach the rest from the chair he climbed on, so I think it's not been touched!
Only immediate family. (I witnessed one of them eating worms when they were a toddler!).

bettycocker Sun 16-Jun-13 12:42:01

Just make sure they don't see this thread. grin

Oldraver Sun 16-Jun-13 12:47:15

I wouldn't personally want to eat it or serve it, not matter how much I am told me would be ok. To me it would be icky

Floggingmolly Sun 16-Jun-13 12:51:52

He'll have been licking his arse just before slobbering on your joint sad
I'd never forgive anyone who served me dog's arse bacteria as an added condiment with my Sunday dinner.

Ledkr Sun 16-Jun-13 12:54:53

Ugh I couldn't eat it no.
I hope you booted his arse into the garden!

Salmotrutta Sun 16-Jun-13 12:59:01

I'm sure I read somewhere that a dogs mouth has one of the highest concentrations of bacteria compared to anything else?

I wouldn't eat it.

Ledkr Sun 16-Jun-13 13:41:13

salmo yes it has, when I worked in a and e we were told to always do a tetanus fit dog bites ugh
Op have you decided? Are you currently eating it <vomits>

technodad Sun 16-Jun-13 13:50:21

A dog can lick it's own anus.

Enough said!

Yum yum!

McNewPants2013 Sun 16-Jun-13 13:52:32

Yuk, no way would I eat it.

Ledkr Sun 16-Jun-13 13:53:54

If not eat it if a dig had even breathed on it tbh.
Not too partial to our canine friends.

helenthemadex Sun 16-Jun-13 14:01:20

I may serve it but would go vegetarian for the day grin

A dog can lick it's own anus. exactly

SueDoku Sun 16-Jun-13 14:10:32

Ah, go eat and enjoy OP grin Trim off any bits that have been nibbled and then ignore the hygiene-obsessed and dish up... <Ends any chance of asking another MNetter round for a meal...> Enjoy a glass of wine as well.

Ashoething Sun 16-Jun-13 14:12:55

Of course you can still serve it! wouldn't bother me one jot but I am a bit minging.

Loulybelle Sun 16-Jun-13 14:15:34

Meh, eat the untouched bits, my mum gives my stepdad all the bits that gets drop on the floor, done him no harm yet.

LST Sun 16-Jun-13 14:48:45

Wouldn't bother me or most of the people I know.

SunMoonStarship Sun 16-Jun-13 14:53:13

Disgusting! YABU

LittleDonkeyKong Sun 16-Jun-13 14:53:50

Sounds like when I was a kid our cat was found licking my dads plate of food, mum just put it in the microwave ready for him to warm up without even giving it a 2nd thought but then my mum didn't like my dad very much! I would serve it

Are you my xMiL? She has served up stew the dog had eaten off the top of, she just scraped a bit more off the top, and an apple pie that a rat hand been gnawing on as she had it outside to cool. Amongst other things.

Thankfully my SIL warned me what not to eat. Her grubby sons dug in regardless.

Calabria Sun 16-Jun-13 15:32:13

Reminds me of a posh party at a relative's house years ago (1960's). We were staying over so were there for the preparation and Mum overheard the daughter of the house say to our hostess. "You're right there is a mouse in the cellar, there are footprints on the salmon mousse". "Never mind" says our hostess "When it's covered in aspic jelly no one will notice". shock

Mum didn't eat any and made sure that we didn't either.

OHforDUCKScake Sun 16-Jun-13 16:19:46

Id still eat it.

Fakebook Sun 16-Jun-13 16:41:35

Eurgh. Another reason to dislike dogs.

Gay40 Sun 16-Jun-13 22:10:18

If I could lick my own arse, I wouldn't be sat on here debating brisket, that's for sure.

ChipsNEggs Sun 16-Jun-13 22:51:02

When I was a teenager I made dinner for me and my bro. While serving up the dog jumped up and was keenly licking the beans on my quickly reassigned his plate. I rearranged them and served it to him without a word.

Lazy git should have made his own dinner.

He's still alive BTW.

Gay40 grin

SirBoobAlot Mon 17-Jun-13 00:13:13

Gay40 grin

I dunno... I might have served it up, as long as I got the bit the furthest away from the dog bites... blush
