this is a very tragic situation i'm sure
the father will live with this the rest of
his life
filing charges seem a bit much
parents across the country leave their kids in hot cars and they die and no
charges are filed

i was expecting it to be a pit bull or another agressive breed but you'd think a dachshound would be harmless. wow unreal! i dont think he should be charged with anything why does someone always have to be held accountable? dont accidents ever occur anymore?

what do you mean why does he have to be charged? That father was neglecting that poor baby, he had no reason to be on a couch by himself. It does not matter the breed of the dog they are all animals. Long ago dachshound was used for hunting. hmmmmmmmmmm go figure?????????? The man and woman should be charged!!!!

Do the math, here. The guy has a four month old (by some other "girlfriend".) He then goes over to a different "girlfriends" house - to "sleep". Right. They leave the baby with a dog who presumably hasn't been fed in so long that it wants to eat urine? Lovely. Too bad it's the baby left with no penis, it should be the father.
he deserves it

I absolutely hate the term white trash but this is one of those stories that just begs one to use it.
The stupidity of the father is more than I can bear.

This is one piece of crap garbage I would love to take out. He deserves it states he should take a trip to the chop shot himself and I agree100%. He had his chance to show he would care for that precious little boy but instead he left him for dog food and did nothing to help the poor screaming baby being mamed. He was too busy banging that piece of trash girlfriend.
Oh by the way my wife was on duty in the ER room when they brought the baby in and it was the WORST that a child could have endured and still lived. She and other staff sobbed that night.

Seriously people, in your wildest dreams, would you ever think this would happen? Would you think a dachshund would do it? Teh dog doesn't have to be hungry to want to eat gross stuff. How many times has your dog grabbed a pair of underwear and eaten it? Hindsight is 20/20 and everyone can go yelling their too late advice. Would I leave a child on a couch. Not necesarily, but what we don't have is enough background. Let's say the baby didn't sleep well and finally fell asleep. Are you really going to move that child and maybe wake him up? You put pillows around him like a baracade. Lots of people do that. Sometimes accidents do happen. And this sounds like a horrible accident. Who would've ever thought this would happen?

I was just letting everyone one know that Day Day has a doctor's appt. tomorrow. Hopefully he will have all the cathiters removed. It's still going to be a long time before he is fully healed. But he is now on medicine for his stomach. He has been up screaming and they think that from the incident that he has problems with his stomach. I will let you all know how his doctor appt. goes. Please still keep my little baby by in your rayers and thoughts.
