I tell the pet to go back to what they were doing. Most likely that was licking themselves. In the case of the dog it was probably eating some free range cat poop.

I'll pick it up with my bare hands if it's dry.

I don't even use a potable water hose. I just use a regular old garden hose. Haven't any of you ever drank out of the hose in your backyard? But, I rarely ever camp at campgrounds with water and when I do because I'm just a weekend camper I usually just use the fresh water tank anyway. It's easer then digging out and hooking up the hose.

I think "Myredracer" summed it up perfectly in post #123. The germs are out there, EVERYWHERE, just use some common sense.

I'm done and I've got to wash my hands after typing on this dirty keyboard.

I use gloves AND wash my hands afterwards. I've done it without and I lived to type about it. If you do or don't, that's fine with me. Just wash your hands, PLEASE!

Good Germs, Bad Germs

Published April 12, 2011 | By Laura
I ran across a statement in a study recently that discussed the ways in which farm kids were healthier than city kids. Lower infection rates, and lower allergy/sensitivity rates. I hope nobody takes offense at the labeling of “farm kids” and “city kids”. I offer no definitions, so you are free to fit in whichever category you like!
Well, there’s usually two big differences between farm and city kids.
1. They more often eat food produced at home. That is, food that is NOT sterilized to death, and coated in preservatives, detergents, and artificial colors and flavors, with the good stuff stripped out and a handful of enrichments thrown in.
2. They are usually exposed to WAY more natural germs, allergens, and things like saliva, manure, blood, raw milk, etc.
So how can it be, if they are AROUND more stuff, and that stuff is (according to the USDA), not as clean, how can they be healthier?
For one, the absence of even a portion of the chemicals that load your food is a health boon to anyone. That alone will strengthen your immune system and reduce your allergies. Commercial organic foods are still laden with a host of contaminants, but they are usually a fair bit better than non-organics, so this may be a way for you to test and see if this makes a difference for you.
But beyond that, it is that very EXPOSURE to germs that MAKES farm kids healthy.
Not all germs are bad. In fact, about half the germs out there are actually GOOD for you. Another 40% or so are neutral – they don’t hurt you or help you. The other 10% are the ones that give germs a bad rap.
The good news about those bad ones is, that most of the time, even THEY are harmless - because you are usually not exposed to a lot, and you normally have enough good bacteria to reduce the effect before your immune system even has to handle it, and what is left is easily dispatched.
So from that paragraph, maybe you start to understand that even bad germs really aren’t that much of a threat most of the time. And there are more factors than just your immune system at work. And one of those factors is….
Ta-da…
Germs!
That’s right. Good germs.
Normally, the world has a pretty good complement of good and bad germs. And the good germs do a lot to keep the bad germs in check.

Thanks OKGC, that just about sums it up.

No gloves for me! I don't want to get rid of the good germs.

Oh come on now, I'm a male and the World is my urinal.

I worked on a ranch for a few years where we had feed lots with no grass, just mud, manure, and feed bunks. The cattle didn't fully digest all the corn we fed them and lots of it lay in the mud, so we ran pigs with the cattle that ate the corn off the mud. In other words they recycled it.
The old rancher used to walk barefoot in the oozy manure. Said it felt like money to him.

Ate many a candy bar standing in all that poop.

Gloves, Nah, not unless its cold. I do wash my hands after however.

Supposed to wash hands before so you don't spread any germs.

I's obvious that we have reached an impasse. No amount of scientific information or common sence is going to convince either side to change their practices.

I grew up on a dairy, dad was a milker drank raw unpasteurized milk till I was 19. We played in the pasture's, and corrals, swam in the water troughs. Never got sick from any of it. If you have never had fresh milk right after the cooler, that's to bad it's not like anything you get from the store. Now the dairy owners can't drink their own milk because the health department says it not good for you, you might get sick, at least in CA. Never knew or heard of any dairy man that got sick from his own milk. I will still wear gloves when handling sewer hose.
