Do you let your dogs or cats lick your dinner plates?
August 20th, 2012
No. Don’t own a dog or a cat.
Mary Jane Anklestraps
Once in a while.
Mostly because my dogs knock them out of my hands and take them.
Yes I do. My dogs love it. ( puppies )
Hell no that’s disgusting.
As long as it isn’t something from the no-feed list, yeah they get tid-bits from my plate and get to lick it as well. My dogs are the children I never had.
Sometimes when my roommate isn’t around to witness it.
Hell no that’s disgusting and bad for the dog.
Hi Claudia!!!! *Waves*
Yep, throw that beast in the dishwasher with the dishes, and don’t have to pre-scrub at all….
Actually I’d faint if my cat ate anything but hard catfood. The nutcase turns away from real food.
When my dog was alive, YES, but just the food residue before the dish went directly into the dishwasher. The cats now aren’t interested in what I eat, except one tries to drink from my water glass but I shoo him away.
Since I eat only puppy meat, it would be quasi-canibalistic to let my dog lick the juice of its own kind!
Of course. Cats are people too.
I usually make him wait till I’m finished eating. Then he gets the leftovers.
Of course! How else would you wash the dishes?

We presidential types clean the dog off of our plates rather than have a dog clean them.
Dinner?… Never!… Lunch and breakfast???
eternal cracker p
Our dog eats full loaves of bread right off the counter in under 30 seconds. Hell no does she deserve anything off our plates. Besides, she would probably take the plate and bury it somewhere.
we all share the same bowl.
Effing cat drinks out of my water glass on the nightstand, though. Every morning it’s almost half gone. There’s a bowl of fresh water on the floor, don’t know what the little bastard’s problem is. I’m thinking about dropping a 9V battery in the glass to teach him a lesson.
The cats are allowed but not the dog because my daughter believes it is unhealthy for dogs. Why cats are different I don’t know, both will eat nearly anthing. They are like four legged garbage disposals.
I hope that question is asked of obama during the “debates”.
The wife will, but I will absolutely NOT.
Yes, and i also let my dog lick my cat.
No. That’s icky.
I would if I had a dog…only have a cat. Wouldn’t let either sleep with me though…eeewww…not in my sheets.
Never but, my dog drinks out of the toilet on occasion just like the POTUS.
is this a trick question;
dog = michelle
cat = sasha or malia
either way, no
They carry fleas
Only before I serve dinner to Barry
No, it ended up starting bad habits where the cats would jump up on the table to eat and the dogs would expect to get leftovers from the plates and get angry if they didn’t get anything.
Now, only the parrot can eat from the dishes.
Nope! Mainly because I worry about keeping their weight down.
We let our dog do it, then it goes right into the dishwasher.
Thats the least I can let him do for getting my beer from the fridge for me.
3 evenings running, cat & dog threads.
You want a lively poll, ask people what R&R’s campaign song should be.
Not that there’s anything wrong with cat and dog threads…
I make my critters fend for themselves, makes better conservatives that way.
5 cats. We all use the same china. Steak and fish go on the floor for lickin’ when I’m done. That reminds me – time to make dinner. Better wash the weekend dishes.
Yes, it is only dog saliva. Not toxic, you know, like baby spit-up.
Further, dogs should be allowed to roam the kitchens of fast food joints to keep those NASTY floors clean.
@eternal cracker – I know whatcha mean. Pack of bagels? Gone! Whole crab, shell and all? Gone!
If I feel like it.
Yes. Our little daschund is part of the pack.
Never owned cats, plan on getting a dog, however, never will I allow it. I have ferrets and I do not let them eat of my plate.
Don’t like any animal eating of my plate.
Can’t help or stop it. He licks the damn things as you’re loading them into the dishwasher.
Negative ghost rider.
This isn’t new but it always breaks me up:
John went to visit his 90 year old grandfather in a very secluded, rural area of Georgia.
After spending a great evening chatting the night away, John’s grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast. However, John noticed a film like substance on his plate, and questioned his grandfather asking, “Are these plates clean?”
His grandfather replied, “They’re as clean as cold water can get them. Just you go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny!”
For lunch the old man made hamburgers. Again, John was concerned about the plates as his appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked, “Are you sure these plates are clean?”
Without looking up the old man said, “I told you before, Sonny, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now don’t you fret, I don’t want to hear another word about it!”
Later that afternoon, John was on his way to a nearby town and as he was leaving, his grandfather’s dog started to growl, and wouldn’t let him pass. John yelled and said, “Grandfather, your dog won’t let me get to my car”.
Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching on TV the old man shouted …
“COLDWATER, GO LAY DOWN
Can’t help or stop it. He licks the damn things as you’re loading them into the dishwasher
I hear ya, Like a kid waiting to lick the bowl,spoon or mixer blades.
Yep. All the time. Then they go in the dishwasher, where they are licked a second time as a prewash.
Are you people kidding me? I just got up from the table (my 14yr old licked all the plates clean, and the pots and baking dish too). But my dog, was sitting under the table licking his dick! The little mutt has developed this thing where he gets so intimidated by me if I scold him or raise my voice that he pisses himself, then he licks the pee from the floor and from the head of his pecker! I don’t let him lick me or anything that I eat or drink from!
I have trouble just eating at a house that has cats. I usually give a polite “no” when asked to stay for dinner or invited over to eat. Can’t understand people letting cats walk all over countertops and tables, let alone let them lick the plates. Yech!
Years ago my parents had a german shepard. My dad was in his 70s then. He often let the dog lick the bowl after he ate his ice cream in the evening. He usually would set the bowl on the floor, and then pick it up after the dog was done. I will never forget the one time (while having an in depth conversation with me)he forgot that the dog had cleaned the bowl. Later in the conversation he decided to get a second helping…
Yes Golden Retriever then he picks it up and brings it to us.
FreeMan - Sorry Sarah
No, they have their own dinnerware and place settings
I just wish they would tip better
Sophie licked every dish from every eater for 10 years. (She was in heaven on Thanksgiving and Christmas!)
Our cat is too finicky. Will only lick Mexican food and grits (other than his every other week serving of milk).
Boobie the Rocket Dog
Boobie tears ‘em up. Of course, they’re Chinets.
No I don’t.
My dog has no clue that people food tastes good. I’m sure she can smell it, but there’s no chance she’ll get to try it. Why start a bad habit?
The cats aren’t interested, which make things simple.
My dog licks his ass, are you kidding?
Agree completely. I know where those feet have been – in the litter box. We keep a few squirt guns around the house for training and it only takes a few shots in the face for the cats to understand that tables and counters are off limits.
And yes, I said cats. We’ve rescued 3 in the last 2 years, and I’m extremely allergic to the little devils. Allegra has been a Godsend.
Buddy does get to lick all of the microwavable dishes before they go in the trash as long as there are no onions.
Onions or chocolate can kill a dog.
I wouldn’t allow a cat anywhere near my kitchen.
Roscoe P. Soultrane
I’ve got a dog. If she’s willing to wait patiently, she’ll usually get dibs on the leavings, so long as it is something she can eat.
Stranded in Sonoma
Maybe once or twice a week if there is some miniscule amount of leftovers I let the dogs lick the plate. Though usually I just scrape it into their bowls.
My wife does NOT and is adamant that the dogs should not get people food. Whatever.
The cats are only interested in licking their fur.
Not at all. But I do help myself to the left over kibble.
My Grandmother was visiting with a friend when an uninvited neighbor showed up, a usual occurrence. After lunch the host let the cat lick the plates before placing them back in the cabinet, unwashed.
The uninvited person never crashed lunch again.
She washed them after the crasher left.
I let the dog lick the plates. Usually he is standing at the dishwasher doing a pre-rinse.
In Sandusky’s new book, Jerry reveals that he let his dogs lick his balls. Never his dinner plates. Those were reserved for his young boyfriends.
Yes, sometimes. I let my dogs kiss me, too.
@NoMoBo — doggie kisses are the best!!!!!
No. I lick their plates.
Nope. Once in a great while I’ll “accidentally” drop a crumb on the floor but normally we don’t give the dog people food.
Xavier, you seem to be having fun here at iOTW…..
The Boys, Ace, Deuce & Spike, get the pLates, pots & pans AFTER I’m done…keeps the grease from clogging the sink.
They also like to clean the banana bread bnwl. And the peanut butter jar after I slosh the butter with water.
No…Haggis did have his own personal size vanilla bean ice cream carton and I’d put a scoop for him on a plate.
New kittens haven’t yet experienced people food. They are eating a special diet because they fart all the time-I don’t want to make that any worse!
They do try to drink out of our glasses though.
No. I had a boyfriend who did let his dog do that. The critter left a film on the dishes that when dry was like obsidian glass. Hard as hell to scrub off.
A roommate had a cat that would drink my coffee if I didn’t catch it getting close..
“My” cat, when I was a teenager, LOVED onion dip, beer and chocolate chip cookies.
She ruined a few parties.
Damned right I do, saves me the effort of having to pre-rinse things before I stick ‘em in my dishwasher. I have nerve damage in my hands so if I try to wash or rinse the damned dishes like a normal person I just end up with a bunch of broken dishes. Also, ‘starving children in Africa’ so it’s a sin to waste scraps of food so the pets get ‘em instead of the trash and we all go to heaven.
Ohk hell no! Leftovers are scraped into his dish, though.
I remember a friend talking about letting his dog lick his cereal bowl when he was done, and forgot and later went back for a second bowl.
Of course I let my dog lick my plate…if it’s really good stuff, I may lick it first!
My Frenchie and Bostie lick their asses, to be sure, but I’ll lick whatever Mrs. Chief will abide…and the Bosch built-in DW ramps up to like 250 degrees.
It’s the Circle of Life, folks! Fuckin’ chill!
Yes. But only as a pre-rinse for the dishwasher.
Its a treat for them, and a pre-clean before the dishwasher.
We are a pack, they pull their weight and I pull mine
I have a golden retriever, a shepherd mix, and a Saint Bernard. It is a daily struggle to keep people food out of their reach.
Do I let them lick the dinner plates? Not on purpose.
Admiral Ackbar here, substituting for Genl Ripper.
IT’S A TRAP! Don’t answer the question – the Obama Campaign hacked this site and is using the poll as a trial balloon to see if further admissions of dog eating will go over well with the voting public.
No dogs or cats and my hermit crabs aren’t interested in the plates.

Yes, sometimes. But the dishes are always sanitized before they are used again.
Old York, OY
only at restaraunts and islamic wedding receptions.
I don’t. Mr. sablegsd does.
I don’t let them lick my face either. Mr. sablegsd does.
I’m sensing a pattern here…..
Of course. My dog is family. Then they go into the dishwasher (the plates, not the dog).
to save the planet from THERMOGEDDEN,my have the dogs lick clean all of my dishes, utensils, and glasses. Thus saving another run through the earth destroying dish washer.
Want to come over for dinner?
>>(the plates, not the dog).
Somewhere I have a picture of a dog standing in the dishwasher licking the plates in the back.
@ sTevo – Dittos!!!
cats rarely, when I had a dog, just a little prewash going on.
