PostSubject: Are you a constant hand washer?   Sat 09 Jun 2012, 10:02 am

A friend told me a story of one of her friends who found his perfect match online.........he went to meet her........his profile stated that there were four in his life, himself and his three rescued dogs, Retreiver, Lab and GSD and pictures of them all.

On his first date he reckons he fell madly in love with this girl (at first sight) at the end of the date he asked if he could see her again, all had gone well so he was bowled over by the response of......."Will have to see, there is a hygiene issue here". Curious he asked what the problem was and she stated that he would not be allowed to touch her or come near as he had dogs and she had a problem with that as they were smelly and dirty 'things'.

Apart from the fact that the story is rather tragic I was wondering. Do you constantly go around washing your hands?

I have spoken to others who say they are always washing their hands so thought I would ask.

I touch and stroke Kassi all the time as I am passing by her or she is in the way. I always wash my hands before doing food, but other than that I just get on with it and yes Kassi gives me kisses as well and I don't rush for the nearest sink.

Do you go with the flow or are you on constant alert?

I defo go with the flow but like you always feel I need to was them before doing eg the cooking or eating with my hands.

My family have always had dogs but my brother still gets funny about touching the dogs & is always washing his hands, his son is now also like it.

Only when I do food or something like first aid.

I'd be at the sink all day if I washed my hands everytime I touched a dog. lol!

I'm with all of you, only when I'm cooking/eating/first aid lol. but even then not all the time. I do wash my hands if I have been giving Russell a good scratch and the tips of my fingers come up with a tinge of brown... that also means its time for him to have a scrub!

I only wash mine after I've been to the loo or when I'm handling food :)

If I washed them after stroking the dogs over half my day would be wasted lol

Ditto - after the loo and before preparing food. I'm still here so stroking my dogs and not washing my hands can't be all that bad for me spinner smile

same here, before food prep and eating, or if they are acutally dirty.

here is an interesting piece (not sure how scientific it was) but it's something I've always agreed with....

I'm a go with the flow kinda person too but have a friend(that grew up with dogs) that is a constant hand washer and even keeps the antibacterial gel in her pocket for inbetween times! Actually holds her hands up and away from the dogs when she visits......hilarious as that makes them more interested in her lol!
