Kids trespassed into dog’s spaceFirst, I feel sorry for the children who were bitten by the dog in Glyndon, Minn., but there is no breed of dog called a miniature Doberman pinscher, and it is bad taste to irritate the dog to get a picture for the newspaper.
Second, if the dog was tied up on the owner’s property, then the kids had to trespass on the dog’s owner’s property to pet it. Who is really to blame? I say the parents of these kids.
So give the dog a break; his natural reaction is to protect his territory and that would be his home and yard.
