Parents,

Please stop bringing "bull dogs" into your homes. They are dangerous animals, and do not display normal behavior. There is nothing alarming about someone knocking on a door. A child, your child, should not require a trip to the hospital because a friend came over and knocked on the door. Also, why is your "bull dog" locked in the basement? Is it possible you've noticed it's not easy living with such a beast? Is the "bull dog" in the basement because you've realized what a danger the animal is? If so WHY DIDN'T YOU GET RID OF IT? It's dead now anyway, but still. Your child going to the hospital could have been avoided. It's always more fun to have something like this happen.

I'm sure a knock on the front door is listed as a pibble trigger. Usually though it's the person knocking that gets mauled, not the owner or their kid... right?
