Other people's children...
 
Just random annoyance that makes me wonder, just... Why?

Driving down the street to take the dogs for a hike. Sitting at a light, suddenly I hear this bark-howl from the car next to us. Rather than Doyle reacting, since he will bark at other dogs, I hear Leia hit her warning bark.

It is then I realize some kid in the car next to us is howling at my dogs. -.- I'm sorry but while my one dog is fluffy and white, she's not a husky or wolf mix people.

Anyone else come across this lovely behavior before?

I had a kid run up to my car when I was dropping my kids at school and bark at Zoe through the window. I'll keep my opinion tasteful but my own children know better. Some kids...I just don't get.

I had a guest's child running around the house, Delgado was lying on his bed chewing a bone and in one of her loops she ran by his bed. I thought she was just running by but she jumped right on top of Delgado and started petting and hugging him. My heart stopped but Delgado just stopped chewing and kissed her face then went back to chewing when she hopped off. I didn't say anything to the mother but I was hyper vigilant the rest of the visit to make sure he didn't get disturbed again

Same child was over another day and the dogs were crated as we were eating, she kept running around the table rather than sitting and I wasn't aware that she was feeding both dogs peanut butter and carrots from her plate (she refused to eat the dinner prepared so her mom asked us to make her a peanut butter sandwich with raw carrots on the side). At least it was a healthy snack but still, I scolded her mom that time and nicely told her that feeding my dogs is off limits. Thankfully she took it well and kept her daughter from doing it again.


On the other hand as a story citing some wonderfully behaved children my sister and brother-in-law were having a house party celebrating their new house and there were 40 adults plus 10 children together. I had brought Jazzy and kept her on leash to make sure she wouldn't be a nuisance sneaking snacks from people. The children ranged in age from 6 months to 8 years old and all of them were just wonderful. Every one of them asked politely to pet Jazzy, the youngest children were supervised carefully by their parents to ensure they weren't pulling her hair or poking her.
One little boy around 2 was just in love with Jazzy and kept following her around and she loved this little guy back, giving him gentle kisses and standing still while he touched her. She jumped up very carefully and kissed him right on the mouth and I immediately scolded her and apologized to his mom who just laughed and said their dog at home kissed him to and she was ok with it.
Jazzy just soaked in the attention and this is my nervous dog that is very particular on who gets to touch her. Most people she just avoids so to see her enjoying herself openly and behaving so nicely was heart-warming to see :)

some people's children are examples of why some wild eat their young.

Nah, survival of the fittest I say :p

Like some person said one, remove all the warning labels from products and only those who have common sense survive. Good population control ;)

Having learned MY OWN lesson as a kid one too many times, my kids have been VERY well taught on respecting not only other peoples dogs but our own.
Our dogs may be the type of dogs that will put up with anything, but there is still a respect that needs to be there.

My son ONCE layed onto one of our sleeping dogs and got a bite in the face. (Nip more or less) he learned very quickly let a sleeping dog lay.

When we are out in public they ALWAYS ask to pet a dog, no matter how friendly they seem. They NEVER stick their hands into crates, expens vehicle windows etc.

It's just common sense that people seem to lack when teaching their kids.
