What I can say about this story is that it's very heartwarming and I wish the best for the dog and for the boy. Very nice to see a change of pace from doom and gloom in the news.

Lots of people seem to think this is cute, but it was horrifically dangerous and a sign of the times.

What if the garage door came down on his head as he passed under it? What if the house was built over a sink hole and it opened up while the child was in the garage? What if the dog was a child molester? What if a tick crawled up the boy's sock and gave him lyme disease?

All very high prices for a cute dog hug.

The story and video were cute - but even 50 years ago I was taught to never go near a strange dog and it was hard for me because I love animals.

Any dog will bite:

5-year-old bitten by Labrador recovering, says her pit bull saved her from being seriously injured - wptv.com

Black Lab Attacks Tucson Boy and His Pit Bull

Boy, 3, left with horrific facial injuries as Labrador savages him at Poole Harbour | Daily Mail Online

Owner: Pit bull injured, 3 people attack by black lab | KIMT 3

So much for pit bulls being the only dogs that attack - there are pages and pages of these when you google. And notice how the pit bull defended the family member in a couple of these.
Wonderful. Now try to find a link about sarcasm; you might learn something.
