Dog lovers listen up...It's not a real good idea to let your fur kid lick you... specifically your face and here's why...

A story circulating on the web "The Kiss of Death" involves an elderly woman from the UK nearly died after her affectionate Italian greyhound licked her on the face causing a major case of sepsis,aka blood poisoning, which was causing her organs to fail. More tests determined the cause: Capnocytophaga Canimorsus bacteria, commonly found in the mouths of dogs and cats.
