    For the most part my husband and I have enjoyed watching this show since we discovered it this past summer. Of late though we find ourselves fast forwarding through the truly "stupid" people who insist on humanizing their dogs into neurotic monstrosities. However, the worst thing for us to watch is people encouraging their dogs to lick their faces and lips. Do they not realize that part of every dogs daily grooming is to lick their own behinds? Yuck and double yuck. Please, producers of this show, stop showing this as 'cute' behavior. It is disgusting.

    What are you talking about? Dogs do it in their natural environment.

    I don't think the licking is a big deal. I think most people think it's cute when a dog licks, or they don't mind it. The producers wouldn't stop showing the dogs licking just because a few people think it's disgusting.
