Default I think I met the worst kids in the world today...

I decided to have a BBQ, the first get together since I got the house. I invited my family and a girl that we grew up with. She has 4 kids under the age of 9. I should have known they were trouble as soon as they walked in and acted like they owned the place. I also had my 4 nieces and nephew over, so kids everywhere. Kids on our end were fine and know how I expect animals to be treated. The other kids, not so much First they decided to give the dogs watermelon with the rinds and I stopped that and took it away. Next the boy picks up the back legs of the dog and is holding him like that. Of course I told him to stop and he did. The other kid was trying to force the one dog to sit by pushing hard on his back, that kid got yelled at. The oldest tried to go fishing in my fish tank, I am not kidding. They filled my one water fountain with pebbles and the other with pop. I'm trying to cook, so I enlist my family to keep guard. I strategically place them in all areas to protect the fish and the dogs. By now we are all losing our patience. My son was the first to say something when the oldest took a bucket of rocks and dumped them on the patio. He looked right at her and said I'll get the broom for you to clean that up. When it was my turn to guard the fish Robyn came in and laid down on the couch. The oldest girl comes in, sits next to Robyn and hugs her. Robyn did not like this kid, she put her head up and away trying to get away. Just as I was going to really yell at this kid, Robyn gets up, walks away and goes and lays down far away from her. Not a growl or anything, if I was a dog I would have bit this kid. Robyn stayed with me the rest of the time and I wouldn't let any of them near her. She showed amazing skills and I was proud of her. By the time they left I was mentally exhausted and decided that those kids would never come back to my house. I trusted my dogs a 100 % before, , now it's 150%. I can't understand how kids could behave the way they did and there were 2 parents there? We continued to have a wonderful rest of the day and all the pups are knocked out.

This is why I don't have kids besides my own at my house! Course I'm that horrible person who loves her kids to the ends of the earth and back but cant stand other peoples kids.... pretty much for the exact reasons above! A lack of respectful parenting.

Shasta puts up with a lot from my kids, mainly my daughter, but you can see she's soaking up the loves and hugs and sits there with that dopey "I love everyone!" look on her face, tongue lolling out the side of her mouth, leaning into my daughter hugging her. Dax just wants to play and wrestle so nobody has the guts to hug him lol. I don't allow outside kids to do that though. My dogs deal with the hugs from my kids. I don't expect them to deal with them from strange kids, despite being good about it.

Cant say I blame you any for banning those ones from coming back.

It was insane how these kids acted and spoke to the parents. There was enough of us to make sure the dogs were safe after we figured out what these kids were like, which took about 10 minutes. After 3 minutes I hid the grapes and the pork chops with bones they brought. I then followed them around to make sure no bones were given. I never cook anything with bones when I have a group of people over.

I seriously would not have invited them if I knew how they were. I told my sons girlfriend that if she ever gives me a grand kid like them I would kill her.

Pretty sure its the parent. I cook for a living and one time this kid come to 1 of the grill in the restaurant and play with the gas valve . The host came to the mom who was 6 feet away and told her what is going on.. the mom said he is just a kid !! what do you expect me to do... put him in a cage ? Lucky i wasn't there or i'd tell her to take the kid him and put him in a cage.

You and your pups all deserve a great day next weekend with lots of fun and relaxation. llombardo your dogs rock! I understand about these situations we've had children and adults act like that w/ our dogs. Thw adults are easier you just ask them to leave.
