We had a Beagle growing up in the early 60's. We also had 12 cats at the same time. But their is no way we were not supervised when we were around them. How about a little parental responsibility?. I'm not saying that parents should get rid of their pets when a child is born or young, I am saying that they need to be watching their children when they are around the dog. It's a great time to teach them to be gentle and that pets are fragile. The other thing the woman could have done was get a slightly larger less fragile breed and still supervised the kid with the dog. Her common sense went out the window.
