    Grandson pulling dog's tail
    Me: Don't pull his tail
    grandson pulling his tail again
    Me: To daughter in law and grandson "That dog loves me more than life but I wouldn't pull his tail"
    Dog: Has grandson's arm in his mouth. Didn't bite down but scared him big time.
    Daughter in law: You need to do something about that dog
    Me: I'm not saying s---- to the dog, he was warned and he was lucky. Some people have to learn the hard way.

    And I'll bet the lab's tail was wagging the whole time. He probably wouldn't have harmed the boy even if the kid was hurting him. He kicked into retrieval mode and just held the arm like he would a duck. Enough pressure to hold gently, but nowhere near enough pressure to hurt or puncture.

    Labs are truly wonderful and patient animals.

    If my pit did that everyone would be asking for her head.

    Really????

    There's hardly ever a report of a pit mauling a jogger, walker, toddler in yard, etc.

    But Labs are completely NUTZ.

    My boxer doesn't have a tail to pull on, but I'm damned sure he would do the same thing he had one to pull on. Kid was warned and didn't listen, his own fault.

    I have three Lab's myself. Wonderful dogs.

    I was bitten in the face when I was six by a German Shepard. I'm 43 now. I still have the scars on my cheek and forehead. Wasn't the dogs fault. Grandpa tried too warn me not to pull his ears and tail. I went right back to messing with the dog when nobody was looking. Should have listened to Grandpa.

    Stories like the above are exactly why you dont pull the hair on a squatch, baby one or not. Squatch not soooo nice.

    SS I think you bare some of the responsibility here, ultimately your dog could pay the price for your grandsons behavior, Your daughter in law only has to make a phone call and your dogs in trouble.

    I too have an older yellow lab, I can completely relate to how wonderful they are and wouldn't hurt a fly except in the lawful hunting of waterfowl, but lets go through this, after the events you stated happen your DIL decides to press the issue and calls the SPCA, by law they are to investigate the situation and we don't want that so the next time I would advise you to remove your DIL from the property until she can be educated to the FACT that dogs do not have thumbs, they have a mouth which they use instead of a thumb to grab little PITA Grandsons when they are being irritable and nobody will get up off their backside to help the POOR DOG

    Sorry but you are wrong in this case.
    For it to be reportable a bite must break the skin..

    It was clearly reported here that in fact did not happen.

    Maybe a hurt feelings report could be logged.

    Kind of like when Dad told me a dozen times (and a dozen smacks) to quit playing with the wall outlet. The last time he caught me he just said "Go ahead." He called me "Buzz" for a while after that would use it as a warning. "Better not do that, Buzz!"

    Sadly, I'm still pretty stubborn like that.

    I completely agree with you, the problem is do you want them at your house investigating the call for a dog bite? Which we both know the Law either LEO or SPCA has to investigate. My point is that even if it is a false claim they need to investigate, part of the reason why LEO's get such a bad rap so why not educate or remove the problem (DIL) and discipline the child rather then let the Dog take the rap?

    Also swatbana, and not to disagree with you but here the Police are also the animal services personnel when the one designated animal services guy is off duty so that's another reason why I said what I did.

    Labs are pretty tolerant of dumbass behavior.

    My grand daughters were riding him down the hall like a horse. Think I am going to keep him outside next time any of them come over. Little kids can abuse an animal and not realize it.

    Sounds like the kid was given 3 warnings...a lot more than most people get.

    Hard head leads to a soft behind

    My labs defense is to fart, and trust me you are not going to stand around for him to do it again. Little guy has some awful gas and then just looks at you like it wasn't me.
