Oh I completely agree with you twini! A tiny dog can be a danger big, sterotypically "bad dogs" (rot, pit) are often gentle and sweet. IMHO, it was irresponsible of them to get any dog, especially puppies. Puppies require a lot of attention and I doubt they have the time to train a dog properly. I know it's their choice to adopt but often if you adopt you can go through a foster program, where an animal has lived with a family with children, cats, smaller dogs, etc. and gets along well with them. I hope Jon and Kate understand that puppies are just like children, and require the right amount of love and instruction to flurish.

I have two German Shepherds (almost 4 and 3 mos) and they are the most gentle dogs. The key to any dog is raising them and exposing them to many different situations. You raise dogs around children and teach them obedience. Runningesq please understand ANY dog no matter what size can do damage to a child if not trained. I have a friend who has a Yorkie that cannot be around children because he bites them. Yes, it would have been nice if they had adopted but that is their choice and many times those dogs have been in terrible situations and require extensive one on one training. I don't really think they have the time.

You would think someone as organized as Kate is would have taken the time to research about the breed. Also read a book on the care and training of puppies. Puppies/dogs lick the people they love, but Kate was having none of it. I wish the dogs luck.I agree with Mellie about Maddie,hopefully one of the dogs will love her alot.

" I was a little disappointed that they didn't adopt... but they don't strike me as being very educated on the issues, so I wasn't surprised." exactly the sentiment i dislike. imagine if this was said to everyone that decided to have their own child instead of adopt.

"But hey, I like rescuing animals that need a home, and you seem to be against that." no, i dislike the pressure tactics. i prefer people choose what they want freely. whether its to adopt a dog or a child.

They were bred, not adopted. And I second what runningesq said. So much of the population in shelters come from the very same breeding mills that many people pay lots of money for in shops. They're not necessarily any more unpredictable than a dog from a certified breeder. I was a little disappointed that they didn't adopt... but they don't strike me as being very educated on the issues, so I wasn't surprised.
runningesq runningesq 8 years
Dogs do not always behave as their breed "should." My point was - is - that you can get a rescue dog that has lived with a family with children. And I'm surprised they picked German Shepards. They are big, strong dogs, and if they snap (and yes, puppies can grow up to be bad dogs), they could do real damage to the children. But hey, I like rescuing animals that need a home, and you seem to be against that. We'll agree to disagree.
wetnap wetnap 8 years
well they do have unknown factors, esp if they are not puppies. i just think its fine for them to select a known breed considering their situation
runningesq runningesq 8 years
Wetnap, I take offense that shelter/ rescue dogs are "experiments." Many many dogs from pet stores are from puppy mills, and those are more likely to be inbred with health and behavioral issues. There are foster/ rescue groups for every (pure) breed, and many foster homes see how the dogs react to children, cats, men, etc. That's probably better than just getting a pure bred dog where you don't know how it will react with children. (this is a particular passion of mine, if you couldn't tell ;))

" and great PR for shelters!! - if they adopted the dogs. Anyone know?" probably not. in their situation the last thing they need is a dog experiment. so adoption is not a good idea for them.

I was not attacking Mady at all. Of course I realize that she's a child and not a robot, so she won't feel the same as her siblings. I feel for Mady and can often see her frustration. It's just that I personally know that it is extremely difficult to have a sibling who needs all of the attention, and I think even Jon and Kate have acknowledged this in the past on the show.

I didn't see the episode, but I hope they really did their research. Adding a dog is like adding a child, and, well, they have a lot of those ;) It would be nice - and great PR for shelters!! - if they adopted the dogs. Anyone know?

Seriously... after all Kate's reservations about pets and they opt for 2 (not one) German Shepherds.... That totally blew my mind...

Happsmjc - I agree! It was hilarious that Aaden was so freaked out and afraid of the dogs. I always get a laugh out of people that take 4 year olds places that they're uncomfortable and then let them suffer while being terrorized. That was sooo funny watching him be scared!! Almost made me forget he's actually a REAL child. As for those that are attacking Mady...do you really think that's fair? She is only a child. And she is entitled to feel differently then her brothers and sisters. They may each also have 7 siblings, but they're not robots.

I almost sh!t myself laughing when Kate vetoed the name Aaden suggested (Scott?) because she didn't want the dogs to be stuck with ridiculous names... and then she said the dog's name would be Shooka.

Enjoyed reading all the interesting and timely comments. I, also, would have chosen a golden for them because hunting breeds are calmer and great for children. I think the Gosselins chose German Shepherds because they want guard dogs to protect their large property. Think about it. Security would be high on my list, also. I agree that we need to see more of the little kids. I am 66 years old and last night's episode made me lol. Jon is growing up and Kate is growing wiser. Let's wait and see it progress, okay?

I feel like Mady is a lot like her mom (hence the controlling personality and emotions) and Cara is a lot more like Jon. But don't be too harsh on Mady, I feel like she may be misunderstood and frustrated and never really taught how to experess herself without acting out.
La-Tua-Cantante La-Tua-Cantante 8 years
I think the reason Jon doesn't talk very much is because on the rare occasion that he does, Kate berates him for "interrupting" her. The dogs were so cute but I also found it weird that Kate was shocked that they were peeing on the carpet. I do not understand Mady at all - she seems so self-absorbed. Sure, she has 7 siblings and they all are competing for attention which can be hard, but EACH of the children have the same number of siblings, not just her. And she's the only one who acts that way.

I feel so bad for Mady. Life is sure tough for her! (insert sarcasm here). I hope that she grows out of it soon so she can enjoy more of her childhood. I don't know if it's editing or what, but we haven't seen much of the older girls this season and what we do see of Mady is a roller coaster of emotions, it's sad that the smallest thing sets her off.
