This reminds me of the time my younger sister was bit in the face by our Ger. Shep. She was bit because she was a very clumsy child and landed on his penis. Eric caught her behind one ear and right below the opposite eye. I remember the police at the house..total accident, Eric stayed with us. Parents did not freak out and blame the dog. I was totally p'd off because she was in my favorite dress when this occured... totally ruined! Looking back, she was lucky he missed her eye.
Parents have got to teach thier kids(and themselves)...maybe this should be taught in school!
