“So sarcastically. No need to kiss the bag just treat it like a human and not in an animal way. However, they only kiss the bag when posing to take pictures only. Right after that they go back to their normal old ways,” one person wrote.
“You don’t have to kiss. Just treat them with care!” another comments.
