Where bad choices make good stories
#1: Rover's got her 6.
Re: the little girl in #1 directing an attack dogThis would seem to be a very bad idea. Little children don't have the judgement to discriminate an actual threat. Besides, companion guard dogs can recognize a threat far sooner than a child. Is she gonna innocently sicc the dog on a young friend to demonstrate her new capability? I'm not a Karen but having witnessed a dog savaging a child, it causes me concern.
The only thing I see her doing is telling the dog to come to her.
Just a guess, but that was dad, and she was in B. I. G. Trouble. No perv is going after a child while someone films.
Stuart, you are mistaken. The dog is working on it's own in covering the child and then attacks on the aggressive movement of the bad guy. The child has no control over the dog
Just the dog protecting the kid. Most dogs don't even have to be trained for it. Every kid should have one of these.
It is obviously a training exercise, the fake arm on the shirt is intentionally prepared to be bitten.One doubts that the child is giving directions. It looks like the dog is actually moving the child to maintain intervening position to the threat.
"Little children don't have the judgement to discriminate an actual threat". Firstly, I think you meant discern rather than discriminate. Secondly, yes, children as young as five are able to discern a threatening situation. I have twin grandchildren that age, ask me how I know. Thirdly, little Stuarts claiming not to be Karens, throwing around generalizations and bad grammar cause me concern. Ohio Guy
Had a roofer stop by to give me an estimate years ago. My daughter was out in back with us. The roofer pointed out that our dog, who never had any training, was staying between him and my daughter.
#8 That's my kind of kid.
Proper response to a government-mandated shutdown.
No, it isn't. The PROPER response to a government-mandated shutdown involves placing the politicians in question in an oubliette.
#8 Ah, the sight of a new young leftist being trained to vent her emotions, because the left knows that how you feel is the most important thing. Don't stop and think. Just spew your raw emotions.Richard in Colorado
I'm not sure. Why was the playground closed, was there a good reason? In the UK people are far too keen to do as they are told. We need to have standards of behaviour for society to function but a certain amount of contempt for authority is healthy.
My take is a child of conservatives that is showing her frustration with the BS plandemic restrictions.
Are you called Dick for short, in Colorado per chance? Ohio Guy
#2 - I. Want. One.
#6) Over the line! Mark it a foul, Dude.
Amazing how girls are super coordinated physics geniuses...
#1 My guess is that both the dog and the kid are being trained. The most effective dog training is when the human owner is also trained.
#9 -- She did not step on the expensive phone. She jumped in time to meet the ground feet first, even though she failed to stick the landing. Compared to other screwups, that scores as a minor win based on the save.
#7, good outcome
Now THAT'S a horse!
#1 - I own a very large German Shepherd, very similar to the one in the video and about that same size. He's a big lovable baby - most of the time.I have two granddaughters, 7 and 9, and one beautiful summer day, we three plus the dog, went down to one of the local creeks where I let them play in the water. The creek was clear, clean, and shallow and all three were having a great time.About a hundred yards or so downstream from where we were, there were two guys seining for minnows. After a little while, they decided to move upstream past us. Okay, but as they approached the kids, my dog went immediately to shields-up and protection mode. The fur on his back went straight up, he bared his canines, and emitted a very low growl.Now, those guys weren't acting in any threatening way, but you can bet your ass that they immediately stopped their approach. I commanded the dog to sit, and he did. I said "It's okay, boy" and he whined a bit but calmed down. The two men then went on past us without incident. From that point on until we left to go home, my dog kept himself between the girls and those two men.The thing is, I had never trained him to do this. Apparently, it is a natural thing for a dog to protect his beloved pack.
I have a Red Bone hound who can smell bad intent. Ohio Guy
Roy, that is one of the reasons that I love German Shepherds. They are not only beautiful and smart, but they are very loyal to their family. I never knew that they were so protective, but that is not a bad thing. I know that Pitbulls have a bad reputation for being mean, but I think that they, like German Shepherds, are just over protective. The biggest problem with Pits is that their jaws are so damn strong, that they can cause a lot of damage if they choose to bite. Keep those granddaughters close, and enjoy every minute that you can spend with them in the creek. Some of my best memories are of playing in our river that runs through my hometown. Best of luck, and have a great summer.
My first wife had a pit bull. One night, when our daughter was just a few months old, I got up to check on her in the middle of the night. The pit was sleeping under her crib and growled as I entered her room. He was fine once he recognized me, but his first instinct was to protect the baby.
#11, to quote Jethro Tull:"Iron-clad feather-feet pounding the dustAn October's day, towards eveningSweat-embossed veins standing proud to the ploughSalt on a deep chest seasoningLast of the line at an honest day's toilTurning the deep sod underFlint at the fetlock, chasing the boneFlies at the nostrils plunderThe Suffolk, the Clydesdale, the Percheron vieWith the Shire on his feathers floatingHauling soft timber into the duskTo bed on a warm straw coating"
Used to own that album. Heavy Horses.
#1 My sons German Shepherd broke through his electric fence and protected the little girl toddler next door from a car that pulled up and a man that jumped out and was running to grab her last thanksgiving.The entire event was captured on security cams from about 3 different houses.Rommel was awarded with a hug from the little girl, and a huge porterhouse steak.
#1 The problem is that there are some dogs that are friendly to everyone. The GSD is a very fine dog. My dad used to raise them. They are very protective. But, they must be taught to take orders.
