    drool unto others

    Hello,

    Can anyone help me explaining this doggy idiom?

    "Drool unto others as you would want drooled unto you".

    I think it is similar to "treat others as you would like to be treated yourself". However what is "to drool" mean here? Re the meaning in the dictionary, it sounds disgusting to lick (with lof of saliva ) other faces as you want to be licked!! yuck!!!

    ...it might be the way dog likes because it's a doggy lesson (or a wisdom from a dog!!)...

    Tks, beeja

    It's another pun - playing on the idea of the old saying "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you" - or, to give it its $10 name, the Ethic of reciprocity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
