I had no idea some dogs didn't recognize toddlers as humans. Thanks for all the stories.

Cats can be very courageous. Years ago, in another apartment one of my cats called me to the garden and when I opened the back door there were two big dogs digging in my garden. Plinius (yes, I use his name) made sure I kept watching and he chased the dogs away.

What an amazing cat.

Years ago, our big malemute/husky wasn't particularly used to small kids, although he did see them around the neighborhood. When my daughter still lived here & visited with her kids, our dog ''adopted'' the youngest kid, (about 2) as ''his'' & nobody but nobody was going to get near her! My husband had to finally drag him away from her so she could get back in the house. He wasn't doing anything, but none of us could even come close to touching that kid!

I noticed something when I was pet-sitting almost full time many years ago: many dogs, especially larger ones, do NOT recognize toddlers as humans, particularly if the dog(s) does not live in a household with small children.  I have seen perfectly sweet, friendly fellows raise their hackles and growl when they see very small children...even through a chain link fence.

In this particular case, legally, the dog should not have been running loose...I didn't hear anyone say whether it was a neighbor's dog or a stray...and the child really should not have been playing so near the street without close supervision.

There's an old, old video that's been circulating the net since dial-up...of a cat chasing a bear out of her yard.  They can be fearless when necessary.

This was all over the tv news last night Felaine, & I got it on computer too. The wounds were pretty bad.

Love the cat sitting on his haunches looking at the monitor, and the kitten laying on the keyboard is cute.
