Poor baby! It looks so painful. I'm sure the grandpa feeling like he wants to jump in that hole with the worthless pit... It's a terrible thing to see a child hurt on your watch but this, he should've known better. Glad he acknowledges the danger instead of excusing it.
DecaturAL, why didn't you show the comments? They've already taken the post down. He doesn't look like a guy that's going to be easily cyber-bullied. I'd be interested in seeing who would try.
I don't understand your comment Anonymous 6:25AM. This dog attack incident was shared by me from another web site. I do not "cyber bully" anyone. As a 71-year-old grandmother, I do not troll the internet looking for fights!!! Dog attacks are e-mailed to me from Google Search. I feel very sorry for this man. I'm sure that if he could go back and make it all not happen, he would. I feel that his honest and frank comment about the dog and the breed came from his gut. This particular comment from him is not on his FB anymore, but pictures of the pit bull "PeaNut" are.
"There but by the grace of God, go I." I had not seen my 2 granddaughters in about 2 months. So I got a call from their mother that they wanted me to come get them for the afternoon last Sunday. I knocked on the door and they ran out wildly hugging me and we headed for my car. As I was clicking the belt across the 3-year-old's chest, I saw her arms with long red marks and smaller red spots. They were on both arms. I immediately asked her mom what happened to her and she said: "Oh, we were visiting my Dad and his dog ran out the front door and knocked her down. Look at her forehead. I think she fell on a rock and that's what made that round hole." So we left and I drove them to shop for a toy and food and then I took them to my home. As I helped her use the bathroom I noticed her stomach also had even longer and more red marks cris-crossing with round circles the size of dog teeth in the area. And I carefully looked at her forehead with the round wound big as a half dollar. It was healing over so this happened at least a week earlier. I have no way of knowing what breed of dog it was or how large it was. I'm sure nothing about this was reported to anyone. She was not seriously injured and was healing. They all are nutters and I have no control over any of it. I can ask them to please keep my granddaughters save around dogs, but it will go in one ear and out of the other..."Oh, it wouldn't hurt a fly...it will lick you to death...it's never hurt anyone before." Her wounds will disappear soon and whatever kind of dog it was will be protected and it will do it again...We all know that!!!
No sorry, I wasn't accusing you of cyber bullying. I wanted to see the comments made by others to his post to see if he was going to get the bully treatment.
I ran into an acquaintance a month ago who used to fix my hair. I told her that I needed a perm but I had arthritis in my neck and found it hard to lean back in the sink in a beauty shop. She told me she was doing hair again and that I could come to her home so I could lean frontward into her kitchen sink. She once had very small dogs which I held and played with but both are dead now and she said she had a larger dog that she adopted. I made an appointment and looked forward to meeting her new dog that is a female Australian Shepherd mix. I arrived and her new dog met me at the door...very friendly. But I heard a man and another dog in her back fence and through the cracks it looked like a pit bull. I hesitated but said to myself that there is no way that that pit will come into the house. She shampooed my hair and began rolling me up while I sat in her chair off her small kitchen area. Then suddenly the backdoor opened and in came the man and the black skinny-assed wiggle butt running and growling at me. I cringed and froze! She said..."Oh, he want hurt you. He's just a lab/pit mix. He's very friendly. He just runs and growls at everybody. He even growls at our son like that." I said I'm afraid. It's making me very nervous. She asked the relative to take it out. He did but they didn't stay out. They came in and out her kitchen 4 times as she hurriedly finished up my perm. So I will never go back there and the moral of this story is...You can't visit old friends anymore because this day and time, they will have a meat grinder living in their home. I never in a million years thought I would go to a beauty shop in a woman's home and she would have a pit bull running around growling at me - a paying customer. There but by the grace of God, go I!!!
They are everywhere! Restaurants, Walmart (service dogs), Bass Pro Shop (waiting to get a picture with Santa, I'm not kidding!). I seriously feel rage when I see them paraded in to inappropriate settings. People think I'm crazy but I always dog screen before I take my kids to people's homes. If they have a pit, chow or Rottweiler or any big dog that is not properly put up then we don't go or we leave. I have 3 boys under the age of 6 and I'll be damned before I see a scar on their little faces cause I wasn't strong enough to offend someone about their dog. Little kids and big dogs are bad enough! But fighting breeds.... I don't even go there!
Decatur, I know what you mean. No place is pit free. I went into Wal-Mart to buy dog food the other day and when I turned into the pet aisle I came face to face with a growling pit bull. It was all muscled up, with cut back ears and a huge spiked collar. The owner was barely able to hold it back with its leash. I slowly backed away and went to a different store and paid more for the dog food. Years ago I worked at a Wal-Mart that had a pet department that sold fish and reptiles. We had to stop selling rat snakes because a customer complained that she was afraid of them. The irony is easy to see.Then there's my daughter, who was raised in an anti-pit bull home. She was not allowed to go to anyone's house until I had checked out their dog. She knows about them. She knows the statistics and the lies they tell. And she's smart! But, now she's 20 and living far away with her boyfriend(who is perfectly nice) and his pit mix dog. I thought she new better. He has a 4 year old daughter from a previous relationship that stays with them sometimes. I worry so much about his little girl and my little girl. You try to teach them and keep them safe, but at some point you have to turn over the reins and let them make their own decisions and hope for the best.
Anonymous 3:25PM, I totally misread you. I guess I was a little touchy yesterday.
@ I want a cute purse, I do the same w/my kids. My oldest was invited to the mother's house of a friend recently, I knew that a pit lived in that house, so I said no. There was some incident about 2 weeks later and I heard that the mom had decided to get rid of that dog. I saw the friend recently and asked why her mom had gotten rid of their pit; it was about 2 yrs, was getting more and more wild and uncontrollable, then it started biting the kids that lived there. I'm SO glad I stuck to my guns on that one!
*knewThat really bothered me more than it should have...
No "spelling police" here, Farmer Jane. Although I appreciate being told I mispelled or used a word incorrectly in my headings or stories. Most the time I know better but so many things on my mind, it just gets by me.
