    Sarah Palin Posts Photos of Son Trig Using Family Dog as a Step Stool[W:122]:

    The former governor of Alaska, 50, posted a trio of photos to her Facebook page Thursday, which featured her 6-year-old son, Trig, who has Down Syndrome, standing atop the black pooch in an attempt to reach the sink so he could help wash the dishes.

    Pic is at the link (which I'll include). So why put this in Polls? I'm curious if the story, to put it bluntly, pisses you off because I gotta admit, as an animal fan, most especially dogs, it kinda pisses me off. Not at the kid, of course, but I know, if it were me, I'd teach my kid to not stand on the family dog.

    Sorry about the weird font and sizing. It did something weird when I copied the quote.

    Attaching poll.

    Great, I can see PETA freaking the **** out about this. Because they need more to go off the deep end about.

    The kid has Downs and the dog was in the way; **** happens.


    Nor did the dog seem to mind much.



    So, I'm indifferent.

    Honestly, it was my own reaction to this that made me curious about others. Typically, I'm one to defend Palin more and, as far as I know, the dog wasn't hurt and the kid is cute. At the same time, the kid's not tiny, especially in relation to the size of the dog and I do believe in teaching kids to, well, refrain from stepping on dog's backs.

    Does it piss me off? No, not really, but I think it was stupid on her part, and if it were my child, I'd not let him act that way. A kid with Downs Syndrome isn't typically retarded enough not to understand things like this. It certainly isn't anything I consider cute.

    I read the article comments on this, and a lot of people were arguing that if the dog was hurt, it would move. I want to punch all those people in the face. The kid could hurt the dog, and it may not be an immediate, obvious injury, but the dog could feel sore later and have a hard time walking. I assume his parents see nothing wrong with him standing on the dog. The more he does it, the more likely it is going to injure the dog and damage it's back and legs.

    Also, Trig is growing. He is going to weigh more and get bigger. His parents should teach him to not stand on the dog now and not later.


    Add: It's not the dog's responsibility to lash out or teach Trig not to stand on it. It's the parent's responsibility.

    If in future he hurts the dog and it bites him, which one will be euthanased?

    Ok, you are kind of making a good point... He should be taught to respect animals, because he could get hurt, and that would be messed up.

    My sister has dogs and kids. The other day, she freaked out because her five year old pulled one of the dogs by the tail. The dog didn't do anything, but you can't pull dogs by the tails. The wrong dog will turn around and bite somebody for doing that.
