agreed thats why i think humans have such a great relationship with dogs, because they bolster our immune system, dogs will like everything then their human friends transferring bacteria , but not just bad bacteria good ones too !
for thousands of years they lick us , if they stop tomorrow guaranteed we will see some new diseases take hold . People who dont let dogs lick them are the ones who will have worse immune systems .
my dogs lick me every day and after a while it can become annoying but I reckon they dont just do it because " awww they love us" no they are doing it because they want to keep up the symbiotic relationship , we feed them and give protection , they protect us and give healthy immune systems. Same as little kids picking the bogeys and eating them !
