   Man lets pit bull babysit infant while he goes to the bar. Considering what state this happened in, that might have actually been the responsible thing to do

Makes sense. One of the first things you teach a dog is "Sit!"

I'm somewhat surprised mom said "fark this, I'm calling the cops", what with this being Fark, and all.

"Pitbulls" actually make good babysitters, so long as they weren't trained as fighting dogs.

Can't change diapers, though.

Guess not considering that it sounds like he left the dog locked outside of the baby's room to begin with. Even the dog thought he was a dumbass.

If it had been a Labrador, the headline would have said "dog." But hey, it's a pit, so naturally we have to include that in order to draw in readers.

They used to be called the Nanny Dogs. Look up old timey Victorian pictures - theres all sorts of "pitbull watching the baby" pictures out there. They're bred to be people-friendly, dog-aggressive.

I have to assume that since we're reading this the dog's name was not "Carl." Of course, Carl was a Rottweiler but the media does run fast and loose with all scary-looking dog breeds.

According to our last pit bull thread, the dog should have eaten its way through the door so that it could consume the tasty tasty baby meat.

I'm usually the first guy to jump in and defend pitbulls, but this time... no. Friendly dogs are usually fine with toddlers, but babies are another story entirely. Babies are wet crying pink things that smell funny and can freak dogs out. And quite possibly, dogs seem to get resentful as babies are competitors for affection (but this is anthropomorphising dogs too much) .

Terriers specifically seem to have a bad history with babies.

Don't leave a dog alone with a baby. Just don't.

They weren't called nanny dogs 100 years ago, period. That phrase was coined in the 1970s by pitbull advocates attempting to increase the legitimacy of the breed so that it would be recognized by the American Kennel Club, which it then was. People eventually came to assume that the term was as old as the breed, and the myth became self-perpetuating. One hundred years ago, pitbulls were known for one thing: their ruthless killing ability in the dog fighting pit. It's the only reason the breed exists in the first place.

Why are you talking about terriers and other dog breeds? Just so you can be right about something?
