Impurity of a dog

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Two days ago, there was dog sniffing the pathway for a long time. I saw a small handful puddle of wetness. So on that area I pushed the pram back and front again twice. After couple of days, my son used to play with the pram tyre by rolling it on his hand. He did that with wet hands and touched utensils with wet hands to eat and below where I have later placed utensils on top when wet. Now I know if a dog licked it we have to wash the earth 7 times. Now because of the saliva that has spread on my house must I wash each utensil that have been touched by him. 


A: If there are no traces of any impurity and you are not certain of the impurity then there is no need to worry about it.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
