Jessica and Jacob had a daughter together before they got a divorce. Jessica bought a dog after the divorce and the dog recently bit their daughter. Jacob thinks the dog is dangerous and wants Emily to get rid of it. Emily thinks he’s trying to get back at her for divorcing him and that the dog won’t bite again.
Slacker thinks Jacob may be projecting anger towards the dog because Jessica chose to divorce him. He thinks it depends on the dog for whether it will bite their daughter again. He doesn’t think he should be able to dictate that much of her life.
Steve thinks it sounds like the daughter brought on herself by possibly agitated the dog. He thinks they should keep the dog and that it was a onetime incident. He thinks if she wants the dog she should be able to make the choice of keeping it or getting rid of it when it comes to her daughter’s safety.
Should she keep the dog or get rid of it?
I have a dog that bit my brother when we were younger because he snuck up on her. My parents let her keep her and she is now 12 years old and hasn’t bitten another person. I personally think she should give the dog a chance depending on it’s behavior after the bite. I don’t think the dog would bite her again but you never know.
