    ....nooooo

    Oh my goodness, I guess it's true.


    A friend of ours gave our dog a big chunk of pork roast yesterday to eat, but he was not interested so it stayed on the ground for approx five minutes until a flock of seagulls landed and started tearing into the meat.  She ran outside shooing the gulls away, gave a bit to the dog and then she took a big bite out of it for herself. LOL

    Never thought about it, just put it in my mouth. Keeping up the immunities I guess. Had all my shots.....

    Nope,i guess it is just one of those wives tales that date back to the 50's.Read the link and weep..>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/fact-or-fiction-the-5-second-rule-for-dropped-food/

    No (but it IS a nice illusion!)
