How would the owners even know what is in the dog's saliva? Aren't dog
owners already aware that dogs lick many things far less sanitary than
their owner's faces? I think if the city really wants to offend the
dog owners, and are willing to go to all this trouble, they should
package it up and mail it to them via parcel post.

This has to be the weirdest thing I have heard in a long time... try
to picture this scenario..... city representatives in suits and ties
down on their hands and knees on the sidewalk and in the parks,
carefully painting piles of dog poop with Skippy.  Somehow, it's like
a surreal scene out of a very bad comedy.

Do cat's lick their owner's faces? Do they even eat peanut butter?

>Do cats lick their poop?

No. But dogs do.
