    I don't have children of my own (can't). I'm a 60's child and my mother was given drugs so she wouldn't miscarry, turns out they had side effects .

    Anyway, after having two step children more often than not from age 6 & 7 it gave me no desire to go to "extreme" measures to see if I could have kids. I too will stick to dogs.

    How many times I have to remind the skids not to put the puppies to their faces, to put them down on the ground, stop carrying them around they have legs, and to engage in games with them with toys and not their hands I hate to count. They KNOW they shouldn't do it but when they think I'm not watching you guessed it.

    But they understand about strange dogs and there is no longer any problems there.

    And SS13 wanted to dob his cousin in for hitting their dog and in fact gave his cousin a big lecture.

    But when it comes to the puppies grrrr.

    MAC, at least you have taught them strange dogs and dogs in general! Kids do see puppies as different! When they grow up they may become responsible dog owners due to what you have taught them.

    Yeah I know. They understand about other people property and that dogs are classified as other peoples possessions.

    The thing with the puppies is, particularly in these last couple of weeks, is that some of them are going to homes with kids and grandchildren.

    The skids realise if the puppy catches their face with their teeth then that is their fault, but I don't want to encourage these types of games. I am being extra careful and over the top. I have explained the reason I don't want these type of games but it's like they can't resist.

    I hope they grow up to be good kids and I do believe they will be good with animals. They have no pets at their mothers and never had any until they met me.

    Well they are lucky to have you MAC!
    I do understand with the puppies though, you are trying to protect other kids in case the puppies like those types of games!
