    Warning, they do show the bite, but no blood, thank goodness. Has anyone heard how the woman is doing?

    This is a local story!

    She was released from the hospital the next day.

    No duh. Take a dog into a weird environment like a tv studio, full of strangers and lights and noise, and then get in his face--what a dope.

    The owner should have told her to back off--he wasn't much smarter.

    Oh my, I jumped about a foot when I watched that. I agree the owner should have been keeping a better eye on that.

    Yup---after all the dog has been through, he was totally stressed out. I'm afraid they will put him down for just dealing with stress the only way he knew how...

    That's what I'm thinking. IMHO, the dog's actions were a quick snap to say "get out of my face, I'm stressed". The dog didn't seem to be in full attack mode.

    Am I wrong, or was everyone on the couch really calm as she backed off. I thought everyone's reactions to be strange...no panic whatsoever.

    Maybe they're trained not to panic, but you're right! It was pretty unnatural -- of course, that could just be editing, too.

    I totally agree

    The news said they are holding the dog in quarantine for 10 days since he was not up to date on shots, and the owners was fined for

    I wonder if everyone was just in shock?

    But um, yeah, you don't get in a dog's face like that! Especially not with a dog you don't know. Jeesh.

    They did a follow up story last night, thought I'd post if anyone was interested. She is going to be OK, the dog is back with his family.

    I'm sorry for the news lady, but at least, they didn't blame the dog!

    So I don't have cable tv anymore so I'd not seen her yet (I'm at a condo in the mountains this weekend so did this morning) but Kyle Dyer has returned to the news.
