I agree with the OP, people ask what seems to be dumb questions. Today, I'm walking my dog down the middle of the street and he's barking his head off for who knows what reason, I'm correcting, distracting, luring and attempting to shut him up, and someone yells at me from the sidewalk "does he always bark like that?" No, cuz I would lose my mind! It was just one of those mouthy sassy days. If your kid was misbehaving, I wouldn't ask you if he always acts like that, I'd let you be embarrassed in private! I do strongly discourage any face time from dogs or kids with this dog, though. First he has to learn a few more manners. I have spent many years as an ER nurse, I don't particularly want to talk to anyone after 3 twelve hour shifts, so it works out well. I just say"please don't touch the dog, he's learning how to be a good dog" and keep on going.
