    Jeez if people think that's gross try letting them watch you clean a few tailpockets!
    I always like to sit back and watch peoples reactions to the dogs..on Christmas when a lot of relatives came over it would range from some who couldn't get enough of playing with them, some who would totally ignore them, and others who were obsessed with not getting any drool on their pants and would scream NO when the dogs approached. My wife says she cant blame people not wanting dog drool on their christmas outfits but I wiped their mouths every 5 minutes and I told people to wear leg warmers lol. I judge people now by how they treat my dogs.

    Well I did. I always use to wash those for my great-aunt. I couldn't touch them without cleaning them first.

    But this? ha! Sounds crazy to me.
    I was a germaphobe too… that is until I had KIDS!!! Let's just put it this way, after seeing projectile vomiting or gastric diarrhea from a newborn (AND getting it all over you, the walls, etc…) dogs germs are NOTHING!!!

    I'm the SAME way… as soon as someone starts the "Ohh gross… doggie drool!!!" the hubby will politely remind them WHO lives here!!! Lol

    Not gross at all. Your argument was completely valid. The dishes are CLEANED in the dishwasher.

    I don't think it's gross, but I don't do it. I wash my dog's bowls in the sink and I use a papertowel. Truthfully, I am a bit of a germ-a-phobe and I always correct Bella when she tries to put her nose into the dishwasher. I also don't let her lick my spoons or other utensils. I use plastic spoons and forks for her.

    Yep, your friend would be totally grossed out at my house! Both of my dogs lick all the dishes they can reach while I load the dishwasher. And their bowls go in it quite often with the rest of our dishes. Sounds a little crazy to me--and not very good manners of the friend to mention it !

    Me too!! I got over caring what people think about my dogs a long time ago. If the dogs bother them, they don't have to come over. And I also tell people not to wear nice clothes when they come to my house. I tend to like people in proportion to how much they like my dogs!

    Thanks guys, I can always count on you for back up. Now I don't feel so alone, knowing that others also wash their dog bowls in the dishwasher with their dishes. The water is so hot, that everything gets disinfected, plus most of the dish washing soaps have bleach in them, and then the drying cycle is so hot as well. I always rinse them first, and I use a paper towel not my dish cloth. I don't think it's gross either, but wanted to see what others thought.

    The thing is, people who aren't dog people will never understand some of the things that dog lovers do. I wouldn't worry too much about it. My family would probably be grossed out that I let my dog sleep in the bed with me. OK, whatever... All of us are different and we let our dogs do different things...and that's OK.

    I am late in this discussion-but if I had a dishwasher, I would definitely put the dog dishes in it-for the dog's benefit-of possibly killing germs! When my kids were young, and I had to take them to baseball practice, I had a doberman who traveled with me. We would always stop for ice cream at the Dairy Mart, on the way home. I used to share my ice cream cone with the dog (Roxie ) then the kids who worked there got to know the dog, and started giving her- her own cup of ice cream. I'll bet THAT would make your friend vomit!!! But I have spent my life with animals, and actually you catch less from them, than you do from people!! @Vikinggirl
