The same could be said of pedophiles...

Interesting...they didn't kill the dog, because it was doing exactly what nature told it to do for non-healing wounds.

The girl doesn't need the toes, the owners save on dog food...

FTA: "The girl yelled that her foot was bleeding when her mother came into her room to wake her up for school. The woman saw all of the toes were missing from the girl's left foot and administered first aid while her husband called paramedics . . .

the girl suffers from spina bifida, which "causes numbness in her lower extremities (and she) has basically no sensation beneath the waist.
"

Wow. That must have been one a heck of a wound.

Pitbulls also do what they would do in nature and eat things that run from them. Should they all be pardoned?

We have several herds of wild Labrador Retrievers 'round here.

Thanks for clarifying that. The headline was confusing.

Much to my dismay,my dog tries to lick my feet when I am in the bed. I should be worried.

How do you know? They might if you ask them nicely.

Only if you have a weeping, festering wound. Or wear bacon slippers.

Sucks about her toes. But from the sound of it she wasn't using them anyway. Also, by the time they use stem cells to cure spinal, they'll also be able to regrow her toes.

Point of the matter is, common sense won out.
But I wonder what the family would do with the dog knowing it ate some toes.

Yes they should, since ignorance about them runs rampant as you so aptly demonstrate.

Well, the parents wouldn't do what had to be done, so somebody had to take the initiative.

2010-12-31 01:55:37 PM
Ewww, can you imagine how bad that wound had to have been for the dog to chew off the infection? I can imagine the dog sitting around for weeks watching nothing getting done and then sighing and crawling under the blanket. The parents are the ones who need to be investigated here, not the dog.

Antimatter: Interesting...they didn't kill the dog, because it was doing exactly what nature told it to do for non-healing wounds.

I have seen stories where dogs were able to detect incipient gangrene (IIRC in the feet of diabetics), and have done the same thing.

The fact that they have an instinct to do this is amazing.

Yet the article still leads with a photo of a dog's snarling, vicious, slavering mouth, as if this black Lab had attacked the little girl.

Farking media.

Yeah, especially since the girl had had it for a YEAR.

/ Am inclined to think that it was an injury, rather than a wound. Who would intentionally harm a child with spinal bifida?

Well they were going to run with that same scary maw, except with all sorts of blood and viscera on it... but they decided that to best represent the story they should go with the clean, menacing look. Professionals. the lot of 'em.
 
2010-12-31 02:07:06 PM
im confused how there was no trace of blood on the dog... how often do you bite someones toes off and not get blood on your face. maybe the girl bit her own toes off. also if it wasn't bleeding the dog was probably trying to get blood flow going or the limb would have rotted off and been infected.

Bad case of athlete's foot can get them going too.

Labs tend to do that. Remember that French lady who had the face transplant awhile back? A black lab ate her face off. farking labs. At least pit bulls wait until you're awake to attack you.

Don't let a dog around a newly circumcised baby either.

Why would someone keep a pet that ate his child.


Some farked up people in this world.

Wow, a lot of cool theories about this genius doctor dog's surgical treatment of the mostly healthy foot by chewing off the toes.

My own theory (which is equally possible) is that the dog is from the future, sent back in time to kill baby Hitler, but it ended up in the wrong place and time so it ate off a helpless kid's toes.
 
2010-12-31 02:28:25 PM
Dog - "Oh my! This toe has a wound on it. Well, I had better eat it lest some dangerous infection should set in. Om nom nom... well that was good, I think I'll have another. Om nom nom... one more couldn't hurt. Om nom nom... well it is the holidays. Om nom nom... One left, might as well. Om nom nom... Phew! I'm full now - feel like a nap."

Close, that WAS baby Hitler II- Hitlina, but all her genocide crimes against a minority were ACTUALLY committed by her toes. Well, not literally of course, but her toes were crucial to the whole plot.

Holy crap, probably not a good idea to have a pet sleep with her if she has partial paralysis.

But anyway, reminded me of something that happened to my brother recently. He had a scab on his arm, and out of the blue his cat bit into it and ripped the scabbed off his arm and ate it. Freaking hilarious and disgusting at the same time, no damage done but he said it hurt.

Ah toed you it wuz infected!
 
2010-12-31 02:35:02 PM

I got to "well it is the holidays"....

The dog was just trying to help. Sounds like she would have needed her foot amputated eventually anyway.

Wound doesn't mean somebody else did it to you, it simply means there has been a break in the skin of some sort. A paper cut falls under the definition of wound.

Spinal Bifida doesn't sound as poetic as Spinal Meningitis:

Why they wanna see my spine mommy?
Why they wanna see my spine?
It's gonna hurt again mommy
Much worse than last time
Am i gonna see god, mommy?
Am i gonna die?
It really hurts mommy!
Am i gonna die?

Smile on mighty jesus
Spinal bifida got me down

gadian: The parents are the ones who need to be investigated here

for what?

She has also had a sore on her left foot for more than a year that will not heal, despite being examined by doctors and specialists.

sounds to me like they were doing all they could and the dog saved them an expensive amputation procedure.

I'd say get that dog a steak, but he's already full of longpork.

Oh... I see how it is. A dog attack story that isn't about a pit, so the first they thing have to do is make it a race thing.
 
2010-12-31 02:42:22 PM
I see that this was one of the dogs adopted out of Vick's murder-mill. Makes sense.

Do you really want to know the answer to that?
 
2010-12-31 02:44:05 PM
I wonder if it was those kind of toes that look like Ms Grundy's nose?

This is interesting. When I was a kid, maybe 6 or 7, I had infected toe. I had this tendency to swipe my mom's nail clippers and clip my own nails, and I often took off too much, So I had kind of a swollen/inflamed area, like a really bad hangnail on my big toe. I was dreading telling my mom about it, because I thought she would be mad at me for it. My dog got really interested in it while I was watching TV one night and started persistently licking it. Now he never bit or chewed it, he just licked it (course he wasn't a rottweiler, pitt, or lab - he was a standard poodle - maybe they aren't as chew-happy). The next morning...it was better! He licked it for several nights in a row, and then it was healed and he stopped. He treated as it would have treat an infection on his own foot I suppose.

It's not racism, man has some best friends that are black.

Dogs really don't approve of gangrene.

Article needed a more violent-appearing picture of a dog to draw in those who are partial to graphics.
