Toddlers: 12 - 24 Months

Wow - guess I was right

I was flamed to death over being the first person to call out a certain bumpie over her dog attack. I felt something was way off and I felt pretty sure no rational person would keep a dog that had "mauled" their child.

I was also attacked for sharing my story about a dog we rescued from a dog fighting ring. We kept him for 5 years, even after we were told from at least 50 trainers he should be put down. Keeping him severly altered our lives. We had to put off having children, spend thousands of dollars reinforcing our yard and home and were never able to have guests over. Very little when you realize we loved him and wanted to give him something of a life.

This was a dog that had to wear a cage muzzle 100% of the time (like Hannibal Lector). He was 150 lbs when he was sick with cancer towards the end of his life. At his prime he was 200 lbs plus. When I got pregnant by accident the choice was abort the baby and maybe let Kai live another year or put him down and keep the baby. Even when sick he was not able to be around anyone (ie, we would still actually eat through walls) and I was not going to take the chance.

I was flamed for chossing my baby over my dog. I am still heartsick over putting him down but I know I made the right choice. Maybe I didn't express myself well but I really was shocked that not everyone was thinking the choice that bumpie made by keeping the dog in the house was crazy and irresponsible. Now I hear she is most likely just plain crazy. What type of person makes up a story like that? Sick, and I worry about what type of mother would fantasize online about horrific injuries to her child?

My gut was right. That is all.

Oh and I used to post under mrsolsen2000 but deleted my account when this all happened because I was finished with the bump lol! I really like this site but all this crazy made up stuff makes my head spin!

Re: Wow - guess I was right

  • I would probably flame you for thinking there was a choice involved. 

    Aborting a baby over keeping a dog for another year?  How is that a debatable "choice"?

  • And my gut happened to be wrong. I'm not going to apologize for defending someone that I thought was being attacked. That is just how I am, too trusting I guess. Plus, people will get flamed all the time here for everything, anything. Either you can ignore it and be a part of the site or not.

    This to shall pass.

  • I've been trying to stay away from all those posts on purpose, but I must just say...

    You got flamed for choosing your baby over a dog? Somehow THAT makes me think this post is full of BS.

    If you really did consider ending your baby's life in order to keep a dying dog for 1 more year, consider yourself cyber slapped.

    It was a choice but one I would never have had a issue making. Of course there is no way I would choose a dog over a baby. But I got flamed to death for explaining why I had to put the dog down and yes, people from the pets board said I was evil (and some very fun names like filthy etc etc) for not aborting and keeping the dog. Tht is why I deleted my account, I couldn't believe people would feel this way.

    But yes, I agree it wasn't a choice and I was just worded it that way to demonstrate the crazies.

  • I get what you were saying about what your options were.  And good for you for seeing the truth about that looney toon.  I can't believe anyone would flame you for making the decision you did. And for not offering anything supportive.  however, I too have had a time where I wasn't supported in the way I had been looking for on here. At least you truly loved that dog and gave him a life that he otherwise would not have had.  What pisses me off is the people who give up their dog's to the humane society because they are moving to a place that doesn't allow dogs.  WTH is that?  I have had my dog with me since the day I moved out.  It isn't that hard to find places where dogs are allowed.  Anyway, you were right.  Pat on the back!

    I would honestly love to see the post where you were called "filthy" for not choosing an abortion.  I'm one of the dog-loving "crazies" and I call BS on this.

    I'm not sure of the point of this post, other than perhaps to keep the board entertained for the day.

    If what you are saying is even remotely true, I am very sorry for what you went through with your dog.  It's never easy to say good-bye, even when it's the most humane and loving thing to do.

  • Basically all I am saying is that I think it is funny I was flamed for saying that I believe any good mother would do is protect her child, not sit around making sh!t up on the internet while her child is recovering (is she was bit at all).

    I am just a normal mom who comes on here while her child is napping. I would never have chosen to keep a dog over a child, of course not. And I too would cyber slap anyone who would. I was simply illustrating the position I was in and how I was flamed for the choice I made, even if to me it wasn't a choice at all.

    I think I will leave the bump in peace now.

    mrsolsen2000:

    ITA, much more likely to have your kid get attacked by a dog than a kidnapping. I get that people love their dogs. We rescued a dog from an organization that rescues dogs used in dogfights. he went through extensive training with numerous trainers specializing in aggressivH dogs. He loved Dh and I. We thought he was safe. He attacked my sister unprovoked from behind. She was only bit on the leg, so she was okay. We used a cage muzzle from there on out. For 5 years he wasn't able to be out without it. We had to reinforce our fencing because I had nightmares he got out and killed a child (even with that he was never left outside unattended). He was 150 lbs. When I found out I was pregnant after my first ultrasound I took him to the vets to be put down. I couldn't imagine having a killer dog in my house with a defensless baby. Yes, I loved him. But he was dog and I loved my unborn child more.
     

    The dog bite story being exaggerated has nothing to do with you being a douche. You still are. Doesn't change anything.

  • Wow!  Just wow.  I'm not sure why SS would exagerate??  10 stitches to me is still too many.  I still would of felt bad about the sitiuation.  What a nut.  Oh and I had my dog for 14 years, but if he would've giving my daughter ONE stitch.  He wouldn't live with me anymore.  Period.
