Part 1:

The last 4 days have been the hardest I've had to deal with in a very long time. On Friday, my 2 year old son was bitten in the face by my best friend's (of 23 years) dog. The dog is a black lab. The dog has been around kids for the last 8 years. I don't know how it happened. My wife was at their house watching my friends kids for a couple of hours. She didn't see it, but she heard a growl, my son scream, and saw his face covered in blood. I was at work when she called me hysterically telling me what happened. She was on her way to the hospital. I called my boss and to his credit, he immediately told me to turn around and come home. The 12 mile trip back to the yard seemed like it took hours. I met my wife at the ER and saw my son. It was like someone took a sledge hammer and hit me in the chest. The best way to describe it is that he looked like someone hit him in the right side of his face hard with a meat tenderizer. His cheek and his upper lip were swollen like he had been punched in the face.

They had to put 2 stitches in his upper lip and two in his bottom lip. They used surgical glue on 3 of the deeper teeth marks and cleaned the rest of them. They gave us some antibiotics and some ibuprofen and sent us home. The ER staff took pictures and filed the necessary reports to animal control. The dog is up to date on all his shots.

While at home, my son was acting fine. Except for his face, you wouldn't know he was hurting. Around 7 p.m. Saturday he slowed down and started hanging on his mom. He developed a fever and the 3 teeth marks started puffing up. He wouldn't eat or take his medicine without a fight. Sunday morning he felt like he was burning up. We took him back to the ER.

They admitted him to the hospital and had to give him IV antibiotics. Over the last 36 hours he's gotten better and hopefully will be out tomorrow.

I wouldn't wish this on anybody. Hearing my own kid screaming that he wants to go home while me, my wife and an ER nurse hold him down while the ER Doc is putting stitches in his face was one of the most heart wrenching things I've ever endured. Looking at his once perfect face, now gouged up from a fucking dog bite, fills me with anger and rage.

Part 2:

While this is all going on, we had to put our dog to sleep this morning. Over the weekend our 15 year old beagle went down hill fast. He wouldn't eat, he could barely get around, and just looked like a mess. We've been expecting him to go sooner or later, but he really took a turn for the worse over the last two days. My wife loved that dog and went above and beyond to care for him over the last year. We knew we had to do this. I called the vet and scheduled him at 10:30 this morning. I had never put a pet down before and this was the first dog my wife ever had. She held him in her arms when they gave him the shot. Thankfully, he went peacefully. About 5 deep breaths after the shot and it was over. While I was expecting this day to come and not thinking it would bother me, I bawled like a baby while this was going on. We both sat with him for about 10 minutes crying our eyes out. We said our goodbyes and went back to the hospital to be with our son.

So, Fuck You to the last 4 days. Every minute of it has sucked. I never thought I'd look forward to going to work, but I can't wait to get away from this for a little while.

Epilogue:

I've talked to my friend since this has happened. He and his wife are just devastated this has happened. When his wife came to the hospital last night to see my son, she started crying the second she saw him. My friend could barely talk to me except to say that he was so sorry this happened. I know it was an accident and I don't blame them. This isn't the first time that dog has bitten a little kid. 3 years ago it bit one of his nieces to the extent she needed plastic surgery. Because it was such a shock that this dog would bite anybody, everyone, including the parents of the little girl and the vet agreed that the dog shouldn't be put down. It was written off as a fluke. I told them I don't want to have to come visit one of their kids in the hospital if that dog bites one of them. By law the dog has to be kept alive for 10 days. After that, I've offered to shoot it myself. We discussed a lot of things and their insurance company has already contacted me.

Our dog will be missed. He came from a shelter and had a good life. He could have ended up at some negro's house tied up in the backyard with a 2 lb chain on his neck. Instead he spent most of the last 10 years living indoors, going to the dog park, going with me when I was "Over the Road" trucking, hogging up more of the bed than he needed, chasing rabbits, and living better that I could hope to. My wife and I are at peace with the decision we made this morning. He's not hurting anymore.

Can't you just take the dog to a vet and have it put down? Unless shooting it will help you in some way, then by all means do it.

It's nice you feel concern for the dog that chewed my 2 year olds face up. I'll try to keep that in mind when I see his scars for the rest of his life.

If your son only has a slight facial scar then it's just a story (I have a scar on my left eye that doesn't hinder me or my looks because I was so young).

However, if he's seriously hurt then I'm sorry. It's hard to tell on the internet.

I had to put my dog to sleep too, and it was a shitty experience.

Sounds like shooting it is your best bet, then.

And I've seen my kid in the hospital with the IVs and everything. It's a horrible experience. Hopefully the injury isn't so bad. This story should remind everyone that even dog breeds that aren't known for biting are still animals. Maybe your story can prevent someone else's kid from getting bitten. That's something positive from this bad experience at least.

My sister got bitten on the face by a dog when she was a child. Split her upper lip literally in half. To this day she has an obvious scar all the way through the center of her upper lip. Not attractive. I wish you the best with your child.

One bite... dog gone.

Two bites... criminal negligence.

I can't even fathom the assholery of a person who would write off a dog biting a child as an "accident" and keep the dog. And the parents of the bitten cild and a vet buying into the "accident" bullshit? Mind boggling stupidity.

Sorry to hear about this. I hope your son feels a little better today.

Shooting the dog is way too quick and way too good for him. If it was my kid, I'd torture that fucker Mike Vick style! Tie him upside down to a tree and start kicking it in the stomach until his guts fall out.

It's so hard putting down the family pet. I love Beagles too! They're great. Their bark is so funny. I still miss my Beagle "Din Dinn"

Good luck. Give that lab a kick for me.

Hope your son heals well.

However, don't go all sadistic on the dog. Remember, it's just a dumb ass animal and probably doesn't realize what it's done.

Sometimes it isn't the fault of a dog. When I was a very little kid (probably around 5 or so) I was pulling on the ears of a family friend's dog, clenching its mouth closed with my wrist, and just fucking with it. Of course it was not malicious, I just didn't understand. The dog was trying to get away, and I was holding the collar. Eventually it did bite my hand. I fucking deserved it, and learned my lesson. No reason to kill a dog over that.

A nip on the hand is one thing... a bite on the face that requires plastic surgery is another.

A face biter shouldn't be given a second chance. I'm not saying the dog should be doused with gasoline and set ablaze... but it should never be allowed near children again.

Yeah I pretty much agree, biting a kids face is not a simple "let go" move, it's more malicious... and in this case the dog is obviously an issue if it did it twice. For a minor bite, the first time, I would probably give the dog the benefit of the doubt.

I had a tiny Boston Terrier. The little shit six-year-old next door tormented the fuck out of it with his marshmallow roasting stick one night and the dog finally got fed up after a good 30 minutes of torture and bit the kid on his ass... didn't even break the skin, but the little brat screamed like his leg had been torn off. It was such a nothing bite that even the brat's mother laughed at him.

Had my dog bit the kid's face, I would've drop kicked the mutt into geosynchronous orbit.

Only thing is no one actually saw what happened.

For all we know the kid could have been pulling on the dogs tail and the dog turns and snapped at him. Normal dog behavior.

That being said, Biff Hardslab, sorry to hear about this as I'm sure is was very traumatizing.

Who are you? Dogminick Barkbara, canine defense attorney?

This isn't a court of law. A dog isn't innocent until proven guilty. Wouldn't you want to err on the side of caution when it come to the face of a child?

Lesson for everyone is that little kids should never be allowed around animals

I've seen kids practically gauge a dogs eye out and strangle kittens - just about all the time the dog or cat takes it but every once in a while they don't

If you're not willing to hand a kid a gallon of gasoline and a match, then you shouldn't let a kid play with an animal

If my dog bit another kids face I would feel horrible. More for the kid and parents but some for having to do what is necessary to my dog.

Hope the next couple of days fare better for you with the scars and healing.. and everything else that comes your way.

Oh... and don't fall for this one, "Oh no... Mister Fluffernutter would never bite your kid. He's just a big snuggle bear who loves kids." Because that's what they all say... ten minutes before their mutt bites your kid.

Unfortunately, this. Your kid was just being a kid and their dog was just being a dog. That's a potential recipe for disaster. It's nobody's fault. At least the kid didn't lose an eye or anything worse.

That plus having to put your dog down must have been a brutal week for you.

You should punch your wife in the stomach for leaving your son unattended with a dog of any kind.

I have a fucking boston terrier and I don't leave my kids alone with her. Why? Because kids don't understand that a dog isn't a toy no matter how many times you tell them.

That being said, if my dog ever bit one of my kids she would be put down instantly.

It blows, but if you own a pet and you have kids or have kids at your house you have to accept that a dog that btes a kid should be put down.



You said this dog bit another kid once. It is disgusting that it wasn't put down at that point.



NEVER LEAVE A CHILD UNATTENDED WITH A FUCKING ANIMAL. IT IS AN ANIMAL AND KIDS ARE ASSHOLES.

Do you also throw your stove out if the kid burns his finger? You can't prevent every accident, and you can't go around killing animals every time a kid is stupid.

If an animal sends a kid to the hospital like in this instance - yes, you put it down. But if it just nips a finger and the little shit gets a valuable life lesson, there's no reason to put the animal down.

I do agree with your main point - adults should not leave small children alone with animals.
