Re: are you crazy?

OK wow! No one said the boy provoked the dog. The child is completely inocent......dogs all have a push point.Some don't like to be touched..or hugged or whatever. Where the responsibility lies is with the parents to make sure the child doesn't get hurt. I been bit by my dog. Did I deserve it...yup! Was there a warning sign..you bet! But big dogs and kids don't mix..its not the dogs fault, they are doing what natural to them. I hate when little kids get bitten..it will leave them with a mental scare for life. But parents have to be responsible for what their kids and animals do, and to think why did it happen!
