  • That's ridiculous, and it makes me sick. I had the same thought Kira_Kira, this kid probably does abuse/annoy this dog constantly.

    The dog's body is getting tense; it's giving warning signals out the wazzooo; and then the yawn - this dog wants this kid to leave it the eff alone.

    I love how the lady behind the camera says, "hey, no biting" howabout HEY train your stupid ass child on how to properly read a dog's calming & warning signals you dumb b*%^h.
  • I watched about 41 seconds of the video and wanted to kick that kid's arse!!! It is obvious that the kid bullies the heck out of the dog all the time and the jackass owner (kid's mother) allows it!!! The dog is at his limit with the bullying kid and is giving signs of it. This is beyond sickening!
  • What pisses me off is that had that dog snapped at the kid and actually hurt him, I guarantee the owners would've blamed the dog. Sometimes punching humans for being stupid should be allowed.

    So where is the petition to smack those two? Can I sign twice? When Fen growls I pay attention, find out why he is growling, and make it stop. Not only is the Shiba giving warning signals but, play out this scenario: the dog (and family) are being desensitized to the growl. So what happens when their Shiba growls for a serious reason (not that being annoyed isn't serious, but you know what I mean)? Fen never growls at ANYONE, then, one time last summer, a man tried to hand money to my husband and Fen snarled, growled and became very protective - he did NOT like the man AT ALL! I took Fen's leash, but we stood right there, and the whole family was on alert against this stranger for the next 2 days (my husband's family owns a campground and marina). Nothing happened, but maybe it didn't happen because Fen warned us that this was a bad man and so we were all on guard! Dogs don't growl for fun - they are communicating!

Howdy, Stranger!
