if you do not want worms do not bring any filthy beasts into your life. if you see one do not touch it or even get near it. otherwise you get what you deserve for consorting with filthy beasts and those that own filthy beasts. proven fact dog owners have more Arthritis than those that do not own the filthy barking beasts, and that is just one example. why people feel the need to care for these beasts is a mystery to me.
