Plenty of celebrities put photos of their pets on social media to show how much they love their furry friends, but some people are criticizing Kate Gosselin for a pic displaying how she lets her family show their love for their German Shepherd, Mak.
In the shot, Gosselin's 13-year-old daughter Alexis is letting the dog "kiss" her lips.
Kate captioned the pic, "The love betweenmy human children and my furry children continues to melt my heart on a daily basis! Mak just can’t love us enough — and we feel the same about him! We adore him! #Alexis #Mak #KingGermanShepherd #NanuqsBrother #ShokasSon #LoveMyKids"
Plenty of people thought the shot was sweet but many found it gross and even dangerous, considering where dogs mouths and noses have been. They also pointed out how surprising it is that Kate would allow it, considering she's shown herself to be a germaphobe on her TV shows.
How dangerous is it really? The bad news is that according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, dogs mouths contain many kinds of bacteria, but the good news is they rarely will make healthy people sick.
So kiss away Kate and fam!
