I want one of those bumpers! the big tug I bet Arnold would love! I actually just use sticks right now for fear he'll decide not to bring one back (he does when he gets distracted or tired.. we're still new to retrieving) But in the pool we use a JOLLY ball on a rope tug, its by far his fav toy ever...

Nope, if she's otherwise stable and not human aggressive she won't hurt your kids BUT I would teach your kids IMMEDIATELY to never get involved in a dog fight.

The soft palate is a soft, fleshy tissue extension off the hard palate, or roof of the mouth. Small dogs in particul...
