I thought this topic was about introducing your dog and what kind of dog you own, the baby can't even speak yet or move much, so I don't think its going to upset our dog at this stage. Secondly, we were not far away from the baby and I could see from where I was. I know that dogs & small children do not mix cause they don't understand, I was just making a point that she is a lovely sensitive animal and gentle natured so people can know about MY dog.

Way to jump the gun ladies...I dont think Grace was saying she went out to the shops and left the baby at home alone with the Dog!

She said "She is very gentle, we leave her with our newborn niece" Which could mean that she hanging out the laundry in the back yard and the dog is in the garden with her and the baby is in cradle on the ground too...

I think rather than assume...perhaps we ought ask in what kind of way does Grace do this with her dog and neice? For all we know that could hang out in the lounge and watch TV together... Grace never said she left them unsupervised...

I think Graces point was that this dog freind was very gentle... I dont think the piont was "i dont need Mary Poppins as I have a dog".

I think it would be poerhaps courtious to ask re the dog than to assume.

Oh Have 2 cats 1 is old, the other is insane ...really want ...dont kill me a PUG!

Nathalie,

I don't believe we assumed anything by the fact that Grace said that she "leaves" her dog with her newborn niece... by using the word "leave" she implies that they are left alone together.

Look,

we never said anything about Grace's dog NOT being gentle. I'm sure she is an absolutely gorgeous dog.

BUT, she is still a dog.

Those of us who are active on dog lists or in dog groups have all heard horror stories about wonderful gentle dogs who have been put in a situation where they have reacted outside what you would think as normal behaviour on their part. In every case, you hear of the owners going "But I never thought that they'd DO that".

And so, when we hear a phrase like "We leave her with our niece", our automatic reaction is "Don't do that!". We aren't judging the dog, we aren't stating that your dog must be violent, we aren't saying that your dog is GOING to attack your niece, we are just saying that it is a risk that shouldn't be taken, and that MANY people don't recognise as being a risk.

Cheers

I agree whole heartedly with Jo and Di. The word "leave" implies left alone. That's all I have to say about that.

So what everyone is saying is that the word leave means left alone.

What about when you 'leave' children to play together, does that mean that they are left home alone.

Anyway, heres a lovely story. I grew up in Watsons Bay, near the notorious gap where people go to jump. There was this lovely labrador who just showed up one day and no one knew who she belonged to. A restaurant at the gap continually fed her and took her in, she was so sweet. The dog would approach people on the verge of suicide and somehow reach the person on a spiritual level, must be those big understanding eyes, and the person wouldn't jump and the dog would somehow change their mind. That dog appeared in the newspaper for many years, a guardian angel.

Isn't it great how dogs can be so nice and understanding like that !!

We had all these rules when we first got our dog, as below:

1. The dog will not sleep in the house
2. The dog will not get on the lounge
3. The dog will not eat from the table
4. The dog will not get on the bed

All these rules no longer apply.

Ive got a 16 month old jack russell cros named Mischevious (believe me, she lives up to that name). I may be biast but she is the cutest lil thing. So loving and affectionate. She was given to be by my ex (we were dating at the time) so she would keep me company while he was deployed to east timor. She knows when im upset or not happy. She always looks like she has a smile on her lil face, and she was rescued from the RSPCA.

im gonna put some pics of her on a website soon, as soon as i figure out how!
She answers to Missy (thats what we always call her), missy moo, miss miss, mischevious, sh*tHe@d, terror, angel, monster.... whatever you call her rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif

Hi there, we have two very naughty puppies. Millie is the oldest she is a kelpie x cocker spaniel, funny mix i know but she is gorgeous and better for city living than a pure breed kelpie.
Lucy is our new puppy, a 8 week old beagle. We have just lost our 15 month old beagle puppy Holly thank's to a family member leaving the gate open.
WE never got her back and we were so sad as well as millie as she always had a friend around that we thought that we would have another go with beagles.

I just hope the person that has kept our gorgous holly loses her and they will know what it is like to loose a member of there family. Harsh i know but our dog was desexed, micro chipped, regged with the local council as well as had her name on her collar. we did all the right things in case our dog got out as beagles have a tendncy to wander sad.gif
But on a good note we now have lucy biggrin.gif
