on a somewhat related note

my son hasn't adjusted to football yet. every time we'd yell (for good or bad) he'd start bawling, making the saddest little face.

should I be put down?

lol

I got in BIG trouble twice with my kids.

Once for having her in the baby bjorn thingy during the Bears Superbowl game and going so nutz when Hester returned the opener for 6 that my howling made my daughter hysterical.

And a second time when I wasn't paying attention and she flipped out of the bed while I was watching a sweet TD catch and throw to Moose, of all people.

I probably was a bad dad then.

My son was 2 years old and I (well he was chilling in the floor doing his thing) was watching the playoff game against the Rams. He didn't know what the fug was going on. With all the "Hell Yeah!" and "Oh Damn!" going on, he thought I had gone crazy. Now when xclown was executed, I jumped up, hit the ceiling fan with my hands, screaming, etc....he damn near jumped out of his pants and then started laughing.

I suggest crating as a viable alternative here.














For the kid.

So does this dog. I would have said he "did" have these problems before yesterday.

He's bitten lots of men, two of my friends included. When I first met my wife he tried to bite me but I showed dominance and tamed him.

He has seemed to prey on those with fear.



This is all I had to hear. The dog would have been out of my house even before the kid was born.

I am a HUGE dog lover, but if one shows agressive behavior toward humans, in any way, it will not stay in the house with me, and especially if I had kids.

Get rid of the thing, and you will never have to deal with what if's down the road.

Z, I haven't read the whole thread, but you could always put him up for adoption. That's what happened to my boy. I just never allowed him to be alone with children after I got him and never had a problem.

This reminds me of idiots with pit bulls who cry "he never did anything before he mauled Johnny within an inch of his life".
All dogs be they Toy Poodles or Rotweilers bite, defend or whatever with the same intent. Pits and Dobies just get the bad rap because when they attack it has the potential to mame or kill.
Ankle biter dogs just get pushed off and laughed at.
No way ever a dog capbale of harming my kid gets close enough to have the potential to hurt my kid.

I agree with Zod. I knew a guy in HS who had a bad scar on his face due to a dog bite when he was a kid. You don't have to have it put down but get rid of it to a new home without small kids.

In the meantime, get rid of all your knives, screwdrivers, furniture with sharp corners, dangerous liquids, objects that can be swallowed and lodge in a throat, your car, etc. All of these things can maim or kill a child.

My wife is filipina. Any dog starts getting out of line, she just grabs a fork and points at the oven, and the dog starts behaving better. :)
