What a lowlife. Laughing as someone is being mauled? Playing? Really? I didn't know playing required people to seek medical attention? I guess I've got it all wrong. When a dog attacks someone, it is playing. When a dog doesn't put someone in the hospital, that is vicious. Now I totally understand. I'm one step closer to becoming a nutter. YIPPEE!
