    . . . Eighth Amendment: The infliction of cruel and unusual grandchildren upon a grandparent shall be limited by the routine practice of birth control. . .
    Luckily -- for my parents and especially my hubby and myself -- I've remained blissfully childfree, never inflicting the above-mentioned creatures on my folks!

    I'm gonna send the article to my mom and dad. They're not grandparents -- as my siblings are childfree as well -- but they and their grandparent-friends will get a kick outta this!

    Here's something that I thought was unusual that a relative sent me. I can link if I need to, I guess, but I'll just tell you about it. It's not pretty. There was a home with 2 dogs (a pitbull and a JRT), and children...the youngest was 6 weeks. The parent was giving another child a bath, the baby was asleep. One of the dogs mauled/suffocated the baby, who was pronounced dead at the hospital. The dog responsible for the tragedy was the JRT. Both dogs were removed from the home at the owner's request. It shocked me that a JRT would exhibit this behavior. I guess we just assume a pit would be the culprit in something like this. Unbelievable....at least, to me.

    Funny. We once adopted a little cat named Salope at the age of 8 weeks. To the best of my knowledge, she never spent any time in the company of kids. However, on the rare occasion that a kid would enter our house for any reason, Salope was just gone. We never saw her leave, we never found out where she went, and she never came back while the kid was in the house. Just vanished. Sensible pussy cat.

    Princess will do that. If she doesn't recognize your footsteps she will hide under the couch. She once hid for a whole weekend while my son had a friend over. I wonder if she even went to the bathroom during that time!
    Yup, with donuts!!

    I think any dog is capable of violent behavior. I've known pit bulls and rottweilers that were some of the most loveable, gentlest dogs in the world and my grandmother had a shih tzu that was the meanest thing I've even been around.

    We have 2 JRT's and they can be aggressive towards other dogs.

    I would never leave a small baby unattended and I trust my dogs. I just wouldn't take any kind of chance with a baby and any dog even though I would like to say my dogs wouldn't do that. I don't know if they would or not, as they've never been in that situation. But then, I probably wouldn't put them in that situation either.

    My son was bit in the face by a dog when he was younger. I never faulted the dog because my son moved too fast in front of her face and she nipped him. Thanksfully he wasn't emotionally scarred because of it and loves the dogs he has at his dad's house.

    Mike Harden does have a way with words. Too bad he's retired and only writes one column a week. He's an animal lover, had a retriever that was epileptic and used to write about being up with the dog all night to keep an eye on him. When that dog died his column was a real tear jerker.
    His daughter, the mother of Big Noise, is an adopted Vietnamese girl. He took her home to Viet Nam so she could see her heritage. That was another great column.

    Smart cat I say. Joey does the same thing, if someone he doesn't know comes in the apt - just disappears.
