    lol yes there are plenty.

    In fact, had the workmates all agape when I admitted daughter had sipped beer when she was like 2.

    FGS, it's a sip, its hardly child abuse but you would have thought it was LOL

    LMAO, one time my sister said "F***" in front of my mum. Well, she had to take a bite out of the soap and chew it LMAO.

    I remember going up to wash my hands for tea and there was a bite out of the soap LOL

    I am sorry for your loss.
    What a terrible coincidence with your sons name.

    It is a story that really hits home hard, I don't have any kids but my nephew was bitten by a family dog when he was under 2, it was pretty bad but could have been much worse.

    I think what little Liam's parents are trying to do is amazing. I also like that there information is so correct. I also like that they didn't just blame the dog and leave it at that, they informed themselves and know that they missed the signs and are now taking it upon themselves to let others know.

    Hit home hard..... that was the sentence that I was looking for.

    Yes, they are doing a good job, and thanks for posting it.

    I just worry, my own Liam is..... trouble, for lack of a more polite word, he has been bitten before,(not our dog, at his friends house) not serious, just a warning, but we told him several times the dog didn't like it, but still he continued, and the dog snapped at him, we told him it was his fault, no sympathy(no damage either). but we do try to tell him but he just doesn't get it, our dog is great, people talk about bullet proof, I don't want to join that arguement our dog is our dog, but the boy doesn't get that not all dogs are like our Bully, doesn't matter what we tell him.

    But it is sad, I'm sure that dog didn't mean that, it was just a warning, but he got him in a bad spot...

    Did I miss something (I haven't clicked on the link, only read the story in the post) but what were the warning signs from the dog?

    When I read stories like that, I can't help but think to myself "that's why I love Pugs". It simply wouldn't happen (a Pug couldn't even physically cause that damage). I know though, that my thoughts aren't reasonable, not everyone wants to own a Pug.

    Interestingly, I owned Weimeranaers when my babies were babies. Horse and Rhana were great with the kids though. I never, ever had any concerns.

    The story is just the story Anne. They speak about the signs on the website.

    Oh ok. But there may not have been warning signs? Dogs communicate by giving wanring snaps and maybe it was purely a warning snap, the first of, and it was unforunate that it hit the jugular.

    Horse, my male Wei killed one of my kittens accidently. I didn't realise the kitten had wandered down near him while he was eating until I heard the growl and snap. I was there in an instant and Horse was blythely eating his dinner with a dead kitty twitching beside him. His tooth had punctured its head and, I assumed, hit the brain.

    Well no. There were warning signs for them, warning signs that the dog was not comfortable with the child but they didn't realise it until after the incident.
