gsdsar Its adorable. I see no issue with it, other than it looks like the kid sleeps in a set up photo studio.

Midnight12 I think it is fine. My grandson always took a nap on the daybed and my last gsd would jump up and nap with him. She has now gone to the rainbow bridge and he is a very healthy 15 year old.

GSDolch There is one thing, and one thing ONLY that makes me upset about these pictures.....






That I can't sleep in those positions without hurting myself! Otherwise, adorable. ETA: Some..some of those positions. If I couldn't sleep in any of those positions I'd never sleep!

Parents are putting their children in bubblewrap to keep them ubersafe. Without exposure to different germs and bacteria how can their immune systems gain strength?

These quotes pretty much sum up how I feel about it. Recent studies have indicated that some kids that grow up "too clean" have more allergies and immune issues than kids that live with pets, play in the dirt, etc.

Germs have been around since the dawn of time. People (and dogs) have evolved with these germs, so that we can co-exist. Since people and dogs started living together, our shared microorganisms evolved together too.

Since we've been spending eons with these germs, our bodies have a pretty good idea of how to deal with them. But disinfectants and modern household chemicals are something we did not evolve with. I worry more about the long-term effects of disinfectants than I do about germs.

Oisin's Aoire I think it is great.If I saw the dog's butt by my kids face it would not bother me. Unless a kid is immunocompromised there are incredibly unlikely to get sick from a pet. When my new adoptees had roundworm , of course I took my precautions. But in general I keep my pets healthy .

llombardo Those pictures are precious and those two will be best friends. My son always wanted the dogs to sleep with him and they did.

Agree with this. Germs are good.

how much different is it to have it next to the kids faces in a pic?
the kid probably crawls where it has touched anyway LoL
i see no difference
studies have shown kids that grew up with pets had fewer allergies and other health issues than kids who didnt
