For S&G and because this is my day off, I ran justin001's post through Google Translate. Beats cleaning the house.

So this:

Although it is risky but in the case of small puppies its not so dangerous and its also depend upon the breed of dogs. If anyone loves puppy in their bed then they must have to do proper care of their dogs such as daily dog wash. This is the best way to take care of these loving ones.. Everyone knows dogs are the best friend of human beings and its all about caring them with sense. However keep the little kids away as much as possible from dogs.
Went from English, to Spanish, to French, to Portuguese, to Yiddish, to Finnish, to Russian, to Zulu, to Latvian, to Polish, (all randomly chosen) then back to English.

It became this:

"Despite the risks, but small dogs that are not so serious, and depends on the breed of the dog. If you are a person who loves his dog bed, it would be good for dogs daily laundry. This is the best way to take care of love .. Anyone know a dog's best friend, and you care about the description. However, to keep the children away from the dogs as much as possible."

Told you I was bored. Explains the oddly worded spam you see around sometimes though. Wonder what justin001's post started out saying?

As far as the original post, phhhhht. A little bit overhyped, you think? It starts off:

"Medical researchers have long shown that contact with pets can often help both the physically and mentally ill. But now, veterinary scientists say sleeping with your pets increases the chances of contracting everything from parasites to the plague."

The plague. Seriously. But at least they didn't start off with Zombie pandemic or anything.

The common sense didn't come in until the second last line:

"The risk of getting sick from being close with your pets is real, but most of the diseases they pass on to humans can be identified and eliminated by regular veterinary care."

So yeah, if you think your pets look ill or wormy, take them to the vet before you kiss them on the lips (or somehow get poop germs in your mouth). Don't go kissing strangers on the subway either, you never know. I've seen World War Z.

None of our dogs will sleep on our bed anyway, even when I try to bribe them by tossing treats on my husband's pillow. Training the husband, not the dogs. He falls asleep downstairs in front of the tv sometimes. The dogs take the treats and go to their own beds, in their room across the hall. I don't think they want to have to try to sleep through my husband's snoring. And, let me tell you, they really hate it when I try to curl up on their beds with them. Again, husband's snoring... :)

Unfortunately I have to agree with this article.

One of my dogs farting while sleeping in our bed would definitely do me in! :yikes:

Dogs in Bed

Yeah, this article showed up on another forum too. Dumbest thing I've read in a while. I send my 2nd graders to school everyday surrounded by far more nasty germs my dogs could ever hope to carry.

Here was the rebuttal blog - hilarious :)
Huh? Sleeping with my dog is dangerous? | PawshPal.com Blog
I've always let my pets share the bed with my kids, it has never been a problem. It does so much to teach the kids responsibility.
