    Its good to know there are intelligent people out there who know how to train their dog and child, to live a harmonious life together. This child will know compassion for animals and that they are not a throw away commodity!

    My boys (9 and 10) have grown up with dogs in the house. One of our dogs of 11 1/2 years passed away suddenly of a heart attack on Wednesday. We are mourning the loss of our best friend and companion. She was a Gentle Spirit, a Kind Companion, a Best Friend, a Protector and she was SO Very Good. The 11 1/2 years we had with her is worth the mourning we are going through now, but it’s still not easy. We were blessed to have called her our friend, we will cherish the memories we had with her. YOUR story in pictures of your precious little boy is beautiful, I love the fact that you let them play and love on one another. He is lucky to have that canine friend. I can tell your doggy adores him too. <3 :)

    i love the pic of your lil boy and his best friend, it is great that you let them be together like this, i lost my lil buddy to cancer last yr and he seen most of my grandkids born and two of them were never able to be around him cause the moms my daughters didnt want him to slobber on them, well i hate to say it but they caused them to miss out on a love that was so true, my lil grandson with autisum poured his self on him and his mom loved it, and he knows the love of a bullldog. it hurt me the others was like that but its ok, i love my bully slobbers. id give my rt arm to have my best friend back today.

    This child may very well love the dog. However the behavior that i see in these pictures, while cute and endearing to some, are a recipe for disaster. A child should not be allowed to crawl all over a dog and sit on his back like the dog is a horse. The child needs to be taught how to pet a dog nicely and respect the dog’s space. I hope that the parents are aware of stress signals in a dog to avoid a tragedy. Love can be shown in ways other than allowing a child to maul a dog. Should the dog respond to this behavior with a stress bite, it’s the dog who will lose his life.

      Oh Lord, Debbie Downer. I knew even before I read the comments that SOMEONE would make a post like this.

      Get real – do you think EVERYDOG is going to bite?

      We had a boxer for many many many years and our kids pushed, pulled, crawled, layed on him and NEVER did he bite!

      Enjoy the pictures and lighten up!

    My Great Dane let my little boy crawl all over her and she would have died protecting him. The only time she ever growled or showed her teeth was when she thought someone or something was threatening my son in some way. We were always careful with him around her. But he was HER baby. He is grown now and will tell you that he never had a better friend than HIS Lizzie.

    So virusgal, get your facts together before being holier than thou.

    Un ejemplo para el mundo de respeto, amor, lealtad y nobleza por ambas partes, da esperanzas comprobar que hay personas que saben educar a sus hijos en estos principios, estoy que ellos conseguirán para si mismos un mundo mejor, FELICIDADES.

    Most realistic comment bears repeating if not only for the simple fact that it is exactly what many animal behavior professionals would recommend: This child may very well love the dog. However the behavior that i see in these pictures, while cute and endearing to some, are a recipe for disaster. A child should not be allowed to crawl all over a dog and sit on his back like the dog is a horse. The child needs to be taught how to pet a dog nicely and respect the dog’s space. I hope that the parents are aware of stress signals in a dog to avoid a tragedy. Love can be shown in ways other than allowing a child to maul a dog.
