The Art of the Hate-Kiss, as Perfected by a Small Canine

On the one hand, your pet can't help but explode with excitement whenever they see you because you are the most wonderful person. On the other hand, they deeply resent you for not spending your every waking moment giving them belly rubs, handing them a constant stream of treats, and walking them all at the same time. Perhaps no act captures this conflicted emotional relationship more perfectly than a little something this Yorkie has perfected: the growling kiss. Nothing says, "I depend on you completely and yet also want to kill you," like a tiny set of gnashing teeth alternated with passionately slobbery licks.

A friend of mine always let her dog kiss her on (and sometimes in) the mouth, and then ended up with a HUGE tapeworm. Can't help thinking of that every time I see a dog kiss.
