    Nice to see dog owners not give up on their dogs just because they had children (and even if the dog does not like their children). There are still ways to love your dog and your children at the same time without having to give up your dog.

    I love it. That is too funny. We had a couple “first babies” dethroned by three kids and they never seemed to get over it.

    My story too – except it was a chow/golden mix. My daughter cried just as hard as I did when he passed, and now remembers him as the BEST DOG EVER.

    The family who adopted this dog made a decision to keep them for life! Responsible pet owners don’t adopt them on whims to be discarded when we move, get married, have children etc. If you want a low-maintenance pet I suggest a rock.

    I applaud the doggy’s owners for putting in the effort in to keep the dog away from their son, AND not tossing him (the dog) in the pound. I see so many older dogs up for adoption because they didn’t fit into the household anymore…..it’s sad. The negative messages on this board are distasteful.

    I wonder if the picture was of an older brother and the writing was the same thing would people be telling them to get rid of the brother… Many older siblings do not like having to “share” their parents and detest going from an only child to having siblings… Parents also spend tonnes of time separating and appeasing siblings so they do not squabble…

      It’s easier to separate 2 dogs than it is to separate 2 kids.
      I’ll take 2 dogs anyday.

    I have a 6 pound Pomeranian and a 29 pound 2 year old..they didn’t get along at first…but they have found common ground. When I caught the 2 year old trying to poke the dog in the eye..I saw the dog gently biting the 2 year old’s finger as if to say “C’mon tiny human…enough already!”..a lesson in patience and redirection. So “small dogs” can make very good “big sisters!” I for one found “Precious” to be absolutely hysterical!

    This is so cute, I’m glad they love their dog. Don’t pay attention to the grumpy people!

    I have my own, not so precious – he is a JRT – he came AFTER my husband, AFTER my GSD and AFTER my son, and guess what, he thought he should be the center of attention! We have learned to live with him, read the signs and leave him alone when we need to. Oh yeah, we love him to bits. He is the cranky uncle of the family. Sometimes we can kiss and hug him and sometimes not! Its not about putting one over the other, its about making your family work!

    This post is SO Precious in SO different ways, that I have to laugh…and laugh…and laugh… There is a relationship just like that of Precious and your kid, but in my case is between the TWO HUMAN KIDS. So, there goes all other theories. :D

    Yes, it is the first baby and sometimes the only one. You are a truly heartless person if you think dogs and cats are disposable once a human child comes along. You sir, are on the wrong website!

    When I was born, I dethroned my mother’s golden retriever, Sandy. My mother rescued Sandy who had an unfortunate past with some young children, so I was not welcome in her world. But, she avoided me and did everything she could to keep the peace. I’m embarrassed to say that I, on the other hand, pestered her mercilessly when out of earshot of my mother. I’m lucky I didn’t lose a finger or worse in my formative years! :-)

    I loved this, it was hilarious. I had a mean kitty that passed away two yeas ago. She was hilarious, the 6 adjectives fit her purrfect, except for one, she didn’t stink. It brought back memories, I really miss her. She wanted to love on you, but you couldn’t love on her. Thanks for making me laugh!

    I used to teach elementary school (5th grade and 3rd grade), and I would’ve asked the student if I could post this in the classroom. Absolutely hysterical, and bonus points for creativity – I think ‘dog devil’ is particularly hilarious, and the accompanying picture is great. When I read this yesterday, I almost had to shut my office door I was laughing so hard.

    Have you though of the child here, growing up stepping lightly and looking around every corner… Sorry,,, the dog would have a new home that would also make the dog happy…

    Sorry… before I raised a child in this environment, the dog would be in a new home where child and dog would be happy, no matter how much, but because I loved the dog and the child….
