I expended my Fourth of July living my best good life: going showered with affection by a morbidly obese beagle appointed Pumba, who had farts that they are able to readily clear out anyone within a 10 -mile radius.

In my experience, dog cherish comes in a variety of forms. There’s the tail-wagging, wiggly butt kind, the OMG I CAN’T EVEN SIT STILL, LET ME JUMP INTO YOUR ARMS kind and the borderline freaky, Give me stare into your spirit while I take a shit kind of love, which my pup personally subscribes to.

My favorite, however, is the lick your face off kind of adore. That kind of affection is so exclusive and special that there is absolutely no other being on world whowould get even remotely close to that various kinds of act. Sorry, guy I’m going on a date with later tonight, but my lovin’ is reserved for a Pomeranian.

Unfortunately, that kind of affection canalso belife-threatening. CBS reports that after get a kiss from her domesticated Italian greyhound, a 70 -year-old woman from the UK was hospitalized when she developed slurred pronunciation and became unresponsive. After being taken to the hospital, she was diagnosed with sepsis( akablood poisoning ), which presented her organ failure.

After various tests, she was found to have Capnocytophaga canimorsus: a bacterium found in the mouths of hounds and “cat-o-nine-tails”. The illnes initially comes off as a variety of sickness, Dr. Bruce Farber, chief of infectious diseases at North Shore University Hospital and Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park, New York told CBS. Symptoms include delirium, chills, sweats and absence of energy. But the key indicator of this infection, Farber pronounces, is found in how quickly the person becomes very ill.

According to Farber, this infection is generally at the hands of a puppy gnaw, making this case rather unusual considering the woman would just like to been licked by her pet , not bitten.

But don’t muzzle your puppies andkittens just yet. The bacterium is very rare( there were only 13 reported cases in the UK and approximately the same in the US) and can normally only be transferred through a bite or a scratching not an fond poke. Even then, you’re genuinely exclusively at risk if you have a compromised immune method, like those of newborns and the elderly.

Thankfully, you are able to treat the bacteria with antibiotics, and the status of women been returned after two weeks in intensive maintenance. She then likely cuddled with her dog for some health puppy therapy.
