If you want to shower Fido with affection, maybe you should opt for a hug instead of a kiss. Why? Kissing dogs could lead to gum disease, according to research detailed in the New York Daily News.

The slightly disgusting news makes me wonder: Have you ever fought with a partner over whether pets are allowed in bed?

An ideal scenario: two animal lovers meet, fall in love and share a happy living space filled with squeak toys and dog fur. A more likely scenario: the levels of pet affection are lopsided.

Anyone remember when Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries fought over letting dogs in bed?

Yes, we love our pets. And that love can often make us overlook certain hygiene issues. Tell me what you're willing to overlook.
