Your baby could be dead right now.

I know that is very harsh. An owner left a week-old baby on the bed and went to the kitchen and the pomeranian killed the baby. Killed it dead.

I know all the stories, and all the books, and all the movies like to show you these smart, loyal, faithful dogs that will lay down their lives for a small child or baby. But, there are also lots of stories where a new baby has been killed by dogs. Even GSDs. One baby was crying and the female GSD took the baby to its momma, and unfortunately the baby did not survive. BTW GSD bitches are wonderful mothers who take care of their babies the moment they squeak. But they are dogs.

The dog had NO business on the bed if he is not supposed to be on the bed.

I would crate the dog when I had to do something like take a shower or leave the room where the baby is. And I would have a talk with that teenager as well.

Some things you can't take back.
