THE FOLLOWING ARE IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR EVERY DOG TO KNOW<br><br>
Instructions for properly hugging a baby.<br><br>
1. First, spy a baby.<br><a href="http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t303/Little_J21/001301c7ead96cdfaf300b320cd8vicki3q.jpg" target="_blank">http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t...cd8vicki3q.jpg</a><br><br>
2. Second, be sure that the object you spied was<br>
indeed a baby by employing classic sniffing techniques If you<br>
smell baby powder and the wonderful aroma of wet diapers this is indeed<br>
a baby.<br><a href="http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t303/Little_J21/001401c7ead96ce1f9200b320cd8vicki3q.jpg" target="_blank">http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t...cd8vicki3q.jpg</a><br><br>
3. Next you will need to flatten the baby before actually beginning the<br>
hugging process.<br><a href="http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t303/Little_J21/001501c7ead96ce1f9200b320cd8vicki3q.jpg" target="_blank">http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t...cd8vicki3q.jpg</a><br><br>
*Note: The added slobber should help in future steps by making the "paw<br>
slide" easier.<br><br>
4. The "paw slide"<br>
Simply slide paws around baby and prepare for possible close-up.<br><a href="http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t303/Little_J21/001601c7ead96ce1f9200b320cd8vicki3q.jpg" target="_blank">http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t...cd8vicki3q.jpg</a><br><br>
5. Finally, if a camera is present, you will need to execute<br>
the difficult and patented "hug, smile, and lean" so as to<br>
achieve the best photo quality.<br><a href="http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t303/Little_J21/001701c7ead96ce1f9200b320cd8vicki3q.jpg" target="_blank">http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t...cd8vicki3q.jpg</a><br>
Dogs, if this is properly done, it will secure you a warm, dry,<br>
climate-controlled environment for the rest of<br>
your life.

Sorry, that TERRIFIES me. That series of pictures went around a couple of the dog lists, and that dog is dominating that baby. That behavior is not OK.<br><br>
I think it's a neopolitan mastiff, by the way.

I was wondering if that was a dominance thing. (but that last pic really is cute)<br>
I figured that since the baby was ok with it, and (evidently) the parents were ok with it, that it was ok. I always try to give the benefit of the doubt. I guess that's what I get for assuming that people always know what's up. lol

I was wondering if I was weird for feeling uncomfortable with those photos. I'm glad I'm not the only one, Joanna. Those actions are EXACTLY how my dog approaches his plush and rag bones. It starts with looking at the toy from the side. Then, bending over and placing his nose on the toy, then doing what looks like a bow and rubbing his neck/head on the toy (as witnessed in the "flattening the baby" photo). Then, he rearranges, lies down, and places the toy between his legs and tosses one paw over one end of the toy before starting the chewing and/or tossing of the toy in the air. I swear I could take a series of photos that look exactly like what that dog is doing to the baby. Skeeves me out a bit.<br><br>
Dog and baby are both gorgeous, though, I'll admit that.

These were my exact thoughts! Along with - that dog is going to get a lot bigger and a lot stronger in many ways. I wonder how this story turned out?

I completely agree with everything that Joanna said, including the breed assessment.<br><br>
That's a lot of dog to be dominant.
