my guess is both dogs were involved. There was a study done about infant swings triggering attacks with adult I don't doubt the child was attacked. Might've started out with the pup nipping at the feet of the child and pulling on them...but from there? anything could have happened...and I'd guess both dogs were involved.

I have been nipped by a small pup and bled...their teeth and very's not so much that they have power as that they cat's claws...when you pull away.

I agree that it was most probably both dogs involved.

If it was something other than the dogs, the truth WILL come out because it's very easy to link the cause of death to that caused by a dog attack. If the child was strangled to death and then the dogs just chewed on the body, that is also easy to find out. Forensic medicine is amazing these days.

While I do think that a 6-wk-old pup would have a hard time pulling a baby from a swing, I don't doubt a Pug could. And most of my friends just invest in those travel swings that sit low on the ground so that's what kind of swing it could've been.

As for euthanizing the pup, I don't think that should've been done at this point b/c I'm more apt to believe the other dog was the true culprit. And yes, if the Pug did it then it should be destroyed. NONE of my dogs have ever even given a dirty or suspicious look towards my baby swing when Cole or Carson has been in it. There are too many good dogs out there to try and adopt out others that killed a baby.

And what a horrible, tragic case. I can't even imagine what that poor baby went through. And where in hell did those parents really go that they could not hear a 2-month-old screaming for his life.....literally! I can promise you they weren't in that house like they claim and if they were, they would've had to have been so heavily under the influence of drugs and alcohol that they don't need children.

Again, the true moral of the story is that children are not disposable creatures that you can just throw in a corner and leave them alone. And if you must leave your child unattended for a minute or so, then by all means put the dogs up! Cole is 2-yrs-old and still has not been left alone in a room with any of the it's not that hard to do. Extra effort? Yes. Hard? No.

The puppy looked so tiny, I can't imagine how it would have killed a baby. I mean, it could reach the baby's legs maybe . . . but how would it reach the rest of the baby?

Something's rotten in the state of Denmark . . . and I think it's the parents.

There's all kind of wierd with this story . . . unattended? In a child swing? At that age? Blaming the tiny puppy and not the adult dog? What the heck? Euthanizing the puppy almost immediately? Where's the pug? What were the parents and grandmother doing? Although I can see the pug biting the baby, even killing it, I'm not sure I can see it getting it out of the child swing without a huge ammount of noise, if at all.

Yeah, there's all kinds of wacko going on here.
I'm a lawyer, but I'm not YOUR lawyer. Nothing I say should be taken as legal advice.

The Court's extensive review of these pages serves as a useful reminder that loaded guns, sharp objects and law degrees should be kept out of the reach of children.

did anyone see the slide show that was on this site? the 10 most aggressive breeds(it doesn't say what they base it on though)

1. Dachshund
2. Chihuahua
3. Jack Russel Terrier
4. Akita
5. Australian Cattle Dog
6. Pit Bull
7. Beagle
8. English Springer Spaniel
9. Border Collie
10. German Shepherd

I wonder if it's ment to be ppl aggression, dog aggression, or combined...

Watch out for those killer Chihuahuas!!!!!!

Even if they are number 2... they're really too small to cause too much damage!
