DH's dog snapped at DS last week. We have NEVER had any issues with him and kids, but luckily I don't allow the dog and DS to be alone together and was close enough to grab the dog when he lunged at DS's face over a toy. This is the one thing that I will not tolerate from a dog and I gave DH until Sunday to find somewhere for the dog to go.
DH found someone to take him and is heartbroken. I feel bad b/c DH had the dog long before DS was even thought of, but I can't help but keep playing the what-ifs in my head. I feel sick every time I think about the fact that he was within an inch of biting DS in the face, that if I not been sitting right beside DS things would have turned out very different... It's hard to see DH so upset, I understand why the dog reacted, my mom was a breeder and trainer, so I get it, but the mom side of me can't help but be relieved that he is gone.
