Well.... a puppy is a kind of baby, isn't it?

Tell that to my brother and sister in law. They're one of those "our doggie is our baby" couples. farking annoying as all hell, makes family vacations a logistical disaster because they won't leave the precious little snowflake in a kennel and nobody wants to accommodate their stupid dog.

End threadjack.

Is it at least well trained, or does it shiat on the floor and bark incessantly?

How much did they charge her? Puppies are kind of expensive these days.

"We couldn't find your baby, lady.  We even killed a pit bull puppy to make sure your child stayed safe."

I can kind of understand the thinking that led to it. Unless the dog in question might be posing a risk to people, it's hard to get a reasonable response most of the time when you call these places.

Still... c'mon lady... just go help it yourself if you're that worried. You're concerned enough to lie to the cops but not enough to go get it yourself?

While working as a greeter at Wal-Mart, I tried to lean in and kiss a baby.  The farking thing bit my face, not just nipped, but bit a big chunk out of my left nostril.  Then the mother accused me of startling it!  I plan on suing everyone.

In this case, I'm afraid the cops are wrong.  She can't fight it.  She's already lost.

But the facts are this:
1.  It was a baby.  The fact that it wasn't specified what kind was not her fault.  Maybe they should have asked.
2.  She called animal control, and they hung up on her.  So, it's not like she didn't do the right thing...

"I wasn't thinking that they would think it was an actual infant," Candice A. Salvatore, 27, told the Advance, adding that she often refers to dogs and animals as "babies".

"I wasn't thinking that they would think it was an actual infant"

I wasn't thinking

I found the problem right there.

I'm an animal guy, I love my dog and fondly tolerate my wife's cat. Several years ago I pushed hard into a fire because a woman was screaming about her "baby" when we pulled up. Turns out she was talking about her Jack Russell.

The dog ended up being dead, and I ended up with some pretty good burns and a loathing for the "my baby" bullshiat.

I can't say what I'd do in that situation, but I can say I once walked into the middle of a busy road to save a turtle.

Even if the dog was dead, trying to save it was a good deed (even if you didn't know it was a dog).

I'm a crazy cat lady. I would never call 911 for any reason about a cat.

That being said, if my house were on fire, and I were freaking out, I can see myself crying about "my babies". I would never intentionally want fire fighters or other emergency personnel to risk themselves for my cats, but in the heat of the moment I can see myself not being entirely clear.

However, the puppy wasn't hers, so she can't claim she was emotionally distraught like I would do.

Did you RTFA?
"After the 911 call, she said, she got a call back from a dispatcher asking for more information about the baby, and when she was asked, "What type of baby, is it a human baby?" she responded, "No, it's a puppy baby." "    and

"When asked about Ms. Salvatore's statement, Nicholas Sbordone, a spokesman for the city's 311 system, confirmed that she called 311, but the operator never hung up. Rather, he said, the call taker transferred her to Animal Care and Control."

When asked about Ms. Salvatore's statement, Nicholas Sbordone, a spokesman for the city's 311 system, confirmed that she called 311, but the operator never hung up. Rather, he said, the call taker transferred her to Animal Care and Control.

"The call was not disengaged at any point at 311," Sbordone said.

Said Richard Gentles, a spokesman for the city's Animal Care and Control, "We have no record of her contacting Animal Care and Control."


It's pretty clear from this that the 311 operator fat fingered it and accidentally hung up on her while transferring the call. This whole thing could have been avoided if Staten Island trained it's 311 operators better.

According to a police report, Ms. Salvatore "created substantial risk of serious injury to (the officer) responding to (the) scene."

Really? It's an abandoned baby, it ain't going anywhere fast.

Roger Gresse, an elderly man, from Zanesville, OH, was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed. Roger opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked, "Is someone in your house?"

He said "No," but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me."

Then the police dispatcher said. "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available."

Roger said, "Okay."

He hung up the phone and counted to 30.

Then he phoned the police again.

"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot them," and he hung up.

Within five minutes, six police cars, a SWAT team, a helicopter, two fire trucks, a paramedic, and an ambulance showed up at the Gresse residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the policemen said to Roger, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

Roger said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

I hope you noted which way he was headed, because by the time you walked away he would have been trying to cross that road all over again and you just set him back ten minutes.

He actually wasn't very happy with me. The little ingrate tried to bite me. He wandered into the trees when I let him down, so I figured he was just glad to be rid of the smelly soft giant who was far too handsy.

You believe that?  Why would the 911 operator ask someone if it's a human baby?  As opposed to what?  A zombie baby? That's just backtracking BS people come up with afterwards so they sound less stupid in their version of what happened.
