This happened to me once as a little kid: some random-ass, poorly trained labrador chased me down and tackled me because it thought it was playing. Except instead of a puddle and marshy-ground, it was hard-ass cement the dog tackled me onto. It didn't cause me to hate dogs, but from that day forwards I was keenly aware that 'damn, these fuckers can be dangerous.'

I don't think large dogs should really be around little kids.

Your dog looks evil. I bet he adheres to all the bad cliches dogs, like terrorizing mailmen.

@Kenzo - She is not evil :) she is a great dog that barks at everything & everyone who is not family ... Then again she is house broken and only stays inside unless she runs out the door before we can stop her.

Oh and she may only look evil cause she is a Mini-Pin

That's only because you don't care if your dog makes a bunch of noise. Whereas, the rest of the world hates you and your shitty dog for being too loud all up in your face. Unless you've got a Siamese cat, cats are never a noise-nuisance. If we were friends IRL, I'd never visit your house ever.

Ducks are among the rare species of fowl that stay cute as they reach maturity. Not sure how housebreakable they are though. If you ever take the plunge I expect a full report.

Spending a decent amount of time on farms growing up, visiting both friends and family, I feel qualified to answer your question:
If ducks are anything like chickens, they are the worst pets ever. Especially considering how domesticated certain breeds of chickens can be, they're probably worse than chickens. Birds have no regard for cleanliness. They will shit anywhere and everywhere. If you hold them too long, they're likely to shit on you. The smell of builtup bird feces is one of the worst smells on earth, possibly worse than cat urine. You have to keep them outside, and caged up unless you clip their flight-feathers. They're also noisy as fuck. It would be cool to live on a lake and feed the local ducks that float by, but that would be it.

Kiko apparently sensed an infection festering in his master's right big toe -- and chewed most of it off after Douthett passed out in a drunken stupor.

It might not surprise researchers studying the capacity of dogs to sniff out everything from cancer to blood glucose levels. Dogs have up to 220 million olfactory receptors, compared to 50 million or so in humans.
