who laughs at animals in slight distress but DDog just licked my plate.

I had had a lovely meal of spaghetti, olive oil, spinach, basil and tomatoes, seasoned with a bit of salt, pepper and chilli flakes.

DDog is now rolling around the rug making WTF? noises and being very amusing to me.

AIBU to laugh? Also to be a slattern? bowl left on floor.

You let your dog have chilli flakes? Hilarious hmm

Roobix04 Tue 23-Jun-15 21:40:47

I'm guessing the dog didn't ask permission.

You let your dog luck your place shock

Ugh vile to let animals lick plates makes me vomitus.

Poor dog not even the real thing.... just a few crummy flakes.

People are so defensive! Maybe she left the bowl on the floor and he snuck over...I think it's funny, won't do him any harm!

Poor dog sad
Is he normally a plate licker?

Rolling around the rug making WTF noises - she is rubbing her nose as it's obviously a tickle. She is not in distress. And, while a slattern, there was the remains of my meal on the plate.

I did not douse her in chilli flakes and make her lick them.

remains of my meal on the the plate on the floor

You posted "slight distress". Hence why posters feel sad for the dog.

Disgusting excuse for animal ownership.

I have absolutely not done the same when my fifteen month old helped herself to a handful of my curry. Oh no, not I.

Roobix04 Tue 23-Jun-15 21:51:58

Next you'll be telling us you encour her chew up your best shoes and chase the cat!
Poor puppy I would have laughed too but then I howled with laughter when my very dignified cat tripped over a tuft of grass.

"slight distress" could mean a sneeze, cough, leg twitch, bark, growl or full on abuse.

However, she rubbed her nose and made a funny noise and made me laugh.

Our dog gets our leftovers (in her bowl though), mane had curry & rice tonight! Prefers it to dog food.

We keep our plates well away from the dog as he has multiple sensitivities, but I will admit to taunting him about his lack of an opposable thumb before I deign to hook his toy out from underage sofa or straighten his blanket. grin

Our sofa is not 'underage' btw, all furniture and appliances are of legal working age.

He'll regret it if he licks his goolies. The howling will keep you awake all night

if a dog licked my plate or anything I eat from, that item will be going in the bin.

steff13 Wed 24-Jun-15 00:19:35

You wouldn't just wash it?

MrsGentlyBenevolent Wed 24-Jun-15 00:22:17

Why Ugly? Do you only like humans to lick your plates clean, as you obviously cannot, you know, wash a plate clean the normal way? It's not nice to let a dog lick a plate, but it's not the end of the world.

My old dog once jumped onto my chair when I got up to get a drink (or something). He licked the side of mustard off my plate. Silly sod was fine, but he never bloody did it again grin.
