    It certainly is.

    The only argument you left on the table was the pro-dog attack side. Is that where you want to move on to or will you answer my question and tell me exactly what sort of debate you wanted to have here?

    Well, I'm not sure what to say. Instead of banning dogs I'd rather have a small/sweet puppy around my children. Say a black/grey pomapoo puppy.

    This is similar to the kind of dog my younger sister has:

    Always supervise children when they are around dogs. Always.

    Jerry: this debate is about the article posted in the OP. If you can't figure out anything to say about it, don't post.

    I really want to know why/how the child was left alone. It doesn't seem reasonable to charge these two parents while taking away their children, after their new dog ripped their young son to pieces.

    ****. I feel for them.

    Horrifying. I don't think that most people understand just how dangerous dogs can be. If people have small kids, they need to understand that dogs, which are not raised around children, largely view them as prey. But does this mean that CPS needed to remove the other children from the home? Anyone could have fallen asleep and left their infant in the swing. I can't imagine being the mom. Coming home to THAT. I would kill myself.
    Something's not clicking, here...

    The last time, the owners fed that dog? 1 day...2 days a go?

    If you don't like mothers who leave their 2 y/o children home alone with a medium size dog, don't do it.

    I'd have killed myself too. What a horrendous tragedy.

    I completely agree with you about dogs. They view babies as prey . . . and very smelly interesting critters that invite exploration. Any person with a dog in their home and a toddler simply must understand that a dog's a dog. Hell, they aren't even responsible when they do something like this. They're just doing what dogs do.

    IMO, one should never ever EVER leave a baby alone with a dog or cat. Never.

    Whenever I hear a parent say, "Oh, my dog just LOVES the new baby," I want to scream.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Well - from what they told us in the article: mom was gone with the oldest child at the Dr's. . . Dad crashed out for a nap with the 3yr old and left the 2month old in a swing. While Dad was sleeping the dog attacked the baby - Mom came home to find the horrific scene - she called 9/11 and I guess they (emergency response) took the baby to the hospital.

    My real concern is: why in the **** didn't dad the idiot wake up when he heard the baby screaming it's head off. Did he wake up, hear the baby screaming, and just go back to sleep?

    What a piece of ****. . . no: I don't feel sorry for HIM - I feel sorry for HER. If I came home to find that situation I would have wanted to rip his ****ing guts out for being the irresponsible twat who let it happen because he was 'sleepy' - was he 'too tired' to take the older child to the Dr's, too?

    What a loser.

    Nothing rips at me more than retarded parents who cannot parent and whose children die of horrific injuries and accidents when the parent was the one who twaddled off like a child and turned their back.

    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Exactly. How is the mother to blame? She had nothing to do with that situation.

    oh, and dogs belong outside. Indoor dogs- just gross. I know people who let them sleep in bed with them, and lick them on their faces and mouth. But to leave one of those things unsupervised with an infant?? Just tragic. And I was thinking the same thing: how did he not hear the baby screaming for his life. The screaming and blood would have provoked the dog into a killing frenzy. It had be a loud enough to wake him if he was in the next room.
