Nothing cute about this. Why to people do this to their dogs. If that child gets a bite in the face the dog will be blamed.
you're clearly a dumb bitch
Why so bitter? The photos are cute. What if the dog is trained?
Your comment is ludicrous. The dog obviously loves this child as much as he loves his dog. Did you not look at the photos?!?
Wow, you must hate kids or dogs. You can see from the first few photos that the dog loves this child and wanted to be near him. Not all animals are potential killers, especially when socialized and raised with love and respect. Seems to me the only one in danger from that dog is anyone who might threaten the child. Good Dog!
Feeling jealous? Do you need a hug too? What are they doing TO the dogs other than loving on them? GO give a some love and you might get some back...
Go back to your room and remain being a bitter miserable couch potato. Golden retrievers are one of the most kind dog breeds in the world. I mean seriously, I've never seen a comment as dumb as this in such a context.
No need to gang up on her. She has a valid point. There are some photos and videos online of kids doing this and other things to a dog and the dog is clearly stressed and under duress and giving clear signs.
omg you guys are funny. http://holtz.org/Library/Images/Novelty/retarded.jpg
Reminds me of my Roxey... she is wonderful with my grandson!!!!
Pretty sure she meant that no matter what may happen, the dog will get the blame. Kid hurts dog = no problem. Kid hurts dog and dog defends himself = dog gets into trouble....to say it nice.I see no hate from the first poster towards the dog, just concern for the dog's well being.
YOU HAVE OBVIOUSLY NEVER HAD A GOOD DOG OR A BOND WITH AN ANIMAL. THEY ARE NOT MAKING THAT DOG DO ANYTHING HE DOESN'T WANT TO DO. HE IS VERY HAPPY TO BE THAT LITTLE BOYS BEST FRIEND. THE ONLY SAD PART OF THIS IS THAT ONE DAY THAT DOG IS GOING TO DIE AND THAT LITTLE BOY IS GOING TO BE SAD. BUT THAT IS THE THING THAT WILL HELP HIM GROW AND MAKE HIM A STRONGER PERSON.
While I see your point, I wonder, did you not notice the age progression of the child? This pair has obviously been best buds for a few years - from infant with a paci, to a toddler sitting at a table with a plate of food....speaks for itself.
Anything can harm your child. Putting them on a school bus, or putting them in a car, has risks involved. Now days, even sending them to school is a potential risk. Should we deny them all the joys in life, just to keep them safe? A well trained dog is no more dangerous then a local playground in urban cities. You good sir, need some perspective. This child has learned a valuable lesson, that he will carry for life. He has learned about the unwavering, unconditional love from a pet. He may be the next great zoologist, or he may someday run a small vet clinic saving the lives of other's beloved pets. He will forever have a greater understanding of dogs, that you sadly lack.
you hate life, sorry buddy.
Wow, you really are a dumb bitch, your the people that outlaw pit-bulls because the media has told you they are a dangerous breed. Go kill yourself you heartless bitch!!
all I can say is that my 2 dogs where connected to my children even before they where born.. my dogs cuddled my pregnant belly. When my children where born the dogs cuddled my children as if they where a part of there pack.. why hate on beautiful nature.. the dog and the child have a brothers relationship as they should while living as a family together...
You don't have a dog or kids, do you?
Ok so my guess on the bitterness is they have a dog and it is mean and bites because it was trained to be that way by its environment or leader. That leader would be who? hmmmm anyone want to take a shot at the answer? Dogs are trained to be mean by their owners actions. And as they said these two have been together for a long time, hence the friends forever title.The world is losing its common sense me thinks. #facepalm
I don't think the dog is being forced to do anything, he obviously likes hugs and attention, however I get your point...... some children can be cruel brats and unfortunately if the dog defends itself he will end up being put down.......... I have two labradors and two little girls, and sometimes you have to teach your children to play nice, and for the looks of the little boy ..... he cares about the dog :-) so much that he covers it with a blanket lol
This is cool. Great photos! This makes me want to post a photo timeline of my dog with my brother's kids and my kids. Nine years and five kids later, he's still the sweetest best friend and protector to our family.
Betti? U r an idiot. People like you make this world crap.
Betti, You must have some real issues in your life, not being able to see the love of a boy and his dog.
My dog used to do the same kind of things with my son...the day we had to put him to sleep (at the age of 17, because of cancer) was one of the worst days of my life.
Betty, while I normally agree? At no time did this dog show any classic signs of being under duress. No whale eye specifically.
This is so sweet. That dog clearly loves "his" baby!
Yes the dog loves his/her human baby
The little girl that lives next door to me got bit in the face by the beloved family dog right in front of her parents. Almost lost an eye. She was not up in the dog's face or irritating the dog in any way. This dog had been the family pet since before she was born and they have many pictures of them together. There were no warning signs. Guess what people? Dogs are animals, just like we are. They can snap, just like we can. To place a baby, that has no idea what cause and effect are, right next to the jaws of a dog is, in my opinion, playing roulette. Don't believe me? Ask my neighbor. Or my girlfriend that had a chunk of her backside removed by the family St Bernard when she ran through the yard and startled him...
I've had multiple dogs throughout my life and grew up knowing (as my kids are growing up knowing) that you never get in an dogs face, or tug, pull on, or hit a dog. No matter how trained, or how long you've had a dog, you don't know how they are going to react when they get scared, mad, or frustrated. Dogs are wonderful pets as long as you treat them well.
OMG that poor dog, he is obviously so much in distress, especially the ones where he is lying on his back...ugh seriously?? While I agree that letting a kid get in a dogs face/mistreat a dog is bad, it is obviously not happening in these pics. That dog is in love & the feeling is mutual. Anyone who has had a beautiful furkid like this & knows how to set boundaries/educate their kids will understand. I would never let my kids tug on or mistreat my boy (who was first)& he loved the kids as much if not more than he loved us. If more people knew how to train & treat their dogs right there would be a lot less problems too, they are pack animals.
My kids have been snuggling up to their boxer/lab mix for the last eight years like this. The dog was a birthday gift for my sons first birthday and she has grown up with him and his older brother. We also have a 18 mth old little girl now. I have pics identical to these plus probably a thousand more of the kids at all ages from 10 yrs to birth with their best friend. If my sons lay on the floor, the dog with crawl across the floor and push her way under their arms so she is under them. If my 18 month old walks by without a pat or a kiss, the dog will lean against her until she gets her kiss. My 18 month old will When kids are sick, the dog stays at their sides. Dogs truly are mans (and kids) best friend if the are raised to be.
When my kid was bit I told him not to put his hand in the dogs mouth To many people want to blame someone else,, People take responsibly for your own actions
I had a golden retriever-lab mix when I was a kid. She was the most loving, sweet, harmless part of the family. When raised right, animals are very tolerant of their "pack". May you RIP Miss Lady Dog-you gave us unconditional love!!I'm with the other dog-loving, dog-trusting people here. That dog is the most unstressed babysitter I've ever seen ;)
Makes me wanna have kids just so I can take cute pics like this,... Then I remember all the times my mother told me my kids would be 7 x's worse than me, and I know that this will be a fact cause, I would be a horrible parent. So back to reality, Me and my Dog LOL It's really better this way LOL
We have dogs which are now older and still love to cuddle because that's how they were raised. For those that have negative comments about how the dog will attack the child is obviously not used to trained dogs. We have had a dog of some sort since my children were very small; they are now 19 and 14. Dogs have a bad rep because of stupid people who train them to vicious. Dogs are very much like humans, they want love and affection.
I, too, have had dogs all my life. My children were not bitten, my dogs were always fine with them and were "raised right". I still would never put a small child next to the mouth of a dog. It's too much of a risk, in my humble opinion, and not worth the adorable picture considering that all it takes is a split second to change everything forever.
i think its adorable.
