Is a dog's mouth really cleaner than a human's?

Jason Edward's dog Duke lays on a big sloppy wet tongue kiss. Adjacent, Jason's girlfriend Kari Kittinger karikittinger [at} gmail d o t com. Dog show in Morro Bay, 10 May 2009. Best of Bay Pooch Pageant Sponsored by Fidelity National Title Company and hosted by Jenny Brantlee. $5 donation per pooch proceeds for benefit of the very successful Mutt Mitt program for Morro Bay and nearby area's parks and beaches. The Mutt Program is run by Sandra and Curt Beebe - and is one of the most successful and impactful volunteer efforts in the area. Photo by Michael "Mike" L. Baird, mike [at} mikebaird d o t com, flickr.bairdphotos.com; Canon 1D Mark III, 70-200mm f/2.8 IS, handheld. I dialed the aperture wide-open here to f/2.8 to try to blur the background and get good bokeh.

Update: 11 June 2009, The image is now published at newsinfo.iu.edu/web/page/normal/11063.html answering the age-old question "Is a dog's mouth really cleaner than a human's?"

 

Lesson: Human interest sells - capture an emotion.
