    TV's Kyle Dyer shares details of dog bite injury on Facebook - The Denver Post

    I won't Watch the Video.

    I've met only a handful of People in the Media... She's one of them.

    She makes 6 People I know in the last 2 decades or so who have been Severely Scarred by Dogs in the Face...

    Just in the Face.

    Last year one of my Neice's Daughter's... "Trusted Family Dog, never agressive before that day"...

    My Wife's Teammate's Baby about 5 years ago...

    Anyway, I'm not against Animals or having Pets, but Ultimately they are Animals.

    I NEVER put my Face anywhere near a Dog's Face and I Certainly wouldn't Allow ANY Child to.

    When you know someone who has had their Cheek Ripped open by a Dog and seen what it does to them Mentally and Physically, it's simply not Worth the Risk.

    JMO... And I'm just one Asshole on the Internet. :thup:

    And I know, I know... The dog was Traumatized by the Incident a Day before at the Lake...

    There's always a Reason.

    Don't let a Dog's Chompers near your Face. :thup:

    :)

    peace...

    I don't bend down to kiss a dog period... :thup:

    If people want to, more Power to them.

    But Animals are Animals.

    I have heard people say the same thing over and over again about Dogs they have had for years that never even growled at anyone going after a Family Member in the same House for no reason at all.

    I know there's "reasons"... There are always "reasons"...

    I know Absolutist Dog Lovers and they get Pissed at me for not letting my kids get licked on the face by their Dogs...

    Sorry, I couldn't Live with myself if that Lick became an ER visit for either of my Babies.

    :)

    peace...

    I'm not sure I trust anyone who doesn't trust dogs.

    I Expect this kind of Response and Respect your Opinion.

    But EVERY single Dog Attack that Loveone's have Suffered, has been by a Dog that was as Trustworthy as I am Certain you would tell me that yours are.

    My Niece's Daughter is 12... She hasn't even started Dating for Real yet...

    That Family Dog that never went at anyone before... Left a Scare from the back of her mouth to her lips.

    She almost lost an Eye.

    It's simply not Worth it to me.

    Maybe it is to you and I Respect that, but I wouldn't let a Dog Lick my Kids Face.

    No way in Hell.

    :)

    peace...

    My Last Dog was Literally my Best Friend at the Time...

    I have Scare on my Arm from Playing with her to rough...

    She was Killed when a Sibling let her out in Heat... She was hit by a Car.

    [​IMG]

    ^She looked about like that... Not the Wrinkliest Shar Pei...

    She would only let me near her First Litter.

    Good God was that Cute set of Puppies. They could hardly get around because of all of the Skin.

    Loved that Dog...

    Wouldn't let her Lick my Kids Faces if she was Alive.

    :)

    peace...

    BAD dogs are BAD, without doubt.

    But generally speaking I'll trust any dog I don't know much more than any person I don't know.

    Absolutely right, strollingbones, she was an idiot. I couldn't even believe it when I heard what happened. How stupid to start lowering your head towards a dog you don't know. And I heard she had her hands on each side of the dog's head gazing into its eyes??? The poor dog probably thought she was leaning in to bite it.

    Stupid, idiot woman.

    It's always people's fault. Somewhere along the line, the dog's badness is caused by people. Treated properly they are sweet, loving happy creatures. They remind me of little wood nymphs or something, they're so sweet and it's so easy to make them happy. It doesn't take much, they are so grateful for every little thing.

    My sister's grandaughter was at her house, as she often is, and they were in the kitchen and my sister had her back turned and suddenly the kid started screaming and my sister turned around and there was blood everywhere...my sister's Rottweiler had bit the kid on the mouth, or so it seemed. The kid was rushed to the hospital for treatment and meanwhile my sister's husband took the dog out back and shot it.

    This was a dog they supposedly loved soooo much. Motherfuckers. Then when they get the kid to the doctor, apparently my sister was told that the wound wasn't really consistent with a bite. In other words, it sounds like the kid bashed her stupid face into the dog's teeth.

    Anyway, they shouldn't have let this little brat hang all over the dog the way they did. Once again, it was the people's fault.

    And the fact that they took that "beloved" dog out back and shot it...well, the family ain't the same anymore. I don't really want much to do with any of them anymore. My sister, maybe...I don't think she wanted the dog shot.

    I hope they don't ever come to visit me and have that brat along. She's not welcome here, I have two Dobermans that I don't want endangered in any way by anyone.
