I thought Parker didn't have a mean bone in his body until xmas eve came along. my husband's 8yr old cousin had been carrying parker all over the house...kinda smothering him w/ love. i didn't tell her to put him down b/c i figured it was good for him to be socialized around kids. well she picked him up one last time and must have hurt him (he's pretty sensitive) and he snapped and bit her in the face.she wasn't hurt, just a little red...more scared than anything. i quickly took parker away and asked her if she was ok. i didn't fuss at parker (i know i probably should have) i was in shock. he has never done n e thing to show aggressiveness before. this child is a little heathen...the reason i never want to have kids. my FIL thought she got what she deserved, and even told me I should give parker a treat. but i do feel bad even if she is the spawn of satan(she is the type of child that tells her grandmother to shut up, and makes grossed out faces as her mother is hugging her). so what should I have done in this situation, and what can I do in the future? Please help before my angel permanently becomes a little devil!

I am terrified of dropping also. Years ago a friend of mine had a playmate viisting her 8 year old daughter and they were playing unsupervised with the new puppy. The little friend dropped the puppy and broke it's back. The poor thing had to be put to sleep.
I'd scream at any idiot holding Lady wrong, too.

i wasnt worried about parker getting hurt...she just had him in her lap...they own a 4lb toy poodle themselves so i felt her was safe. i don't think i have to worry about her wanting to hold him n e more...she was pretty scared. she came by at patted him on the head later on that evening...i think thats as close as she will get. i wont be letting her hold him after this incident. thank you all for your replies.
