    1! No! Dogs can get sick from other dogs and humans get sick from other humans, but the strain of virus that gets humans sick is different from ones that attack dogs! So hug and cuddle with your dog as much as you want when your sick, they will not catch a cold from you! This is not breed specific, but for all dogs! If you are still unsure, call up your veterinarians office and the staff with say the same thing!2! Anything can get electricuted and curious puppies are known to get a shock when chewing on cords! As for active wires in water, yes! Both the metal bowl and the water can and will conduct electricity, so I would highly suggest moving your dogs food and water bowl and moving them from thier current location! However, just having the bowls next to a tv or anything electric will not cause hard, just if anything with a live current (like a live wire) hits or goes into the bowl, you will have a major problem!
