Peaches Geldof A Terrible Mom for Allowing Golden Retriever Near Baby?

A Twitter war has broken out between Peaches Geldof and Katie Price (aka Jordan)  over whether or not it is safe to let dogs around babies.

Reality TV star and model Katie Price (left) accused Peaches of being an irresponsible parent for letting her golden retriever “Parpy” near her son after Geldof posted  pictures of the beautiful duo on Twitter.

Katie Price wrote about the incident in her newspaper column in The Sun.

Let’s hope she grows up a bit more before becoming a mum to two tots,” and  “An animal is an animal and that means they can turn on you at any point. All new mums should also remember that dogs can easily get jealous of new babies.

Katie continues “I’ve got two French mastiffs and a French bulldog at home but my kids are only ever allowed to play with them over the fence.”

(doesn’t that sound like a barrel of fun?)

On November 19th, Peaches replied with a series of tweets:

Funny that Katie Price aka “Jordan” (lol) thinks that I shouldn’t allow my gentle, sweet golden retriever dog near his best friend, my son-”

“I could say the same thing to her about letting some of the multitude of “boyfriends” she has near her kids. They all seem to be more vicious and far less intelligent than my dog will ever be. And I do just LOVE seeing her flashing her vag in the press all the time. *vom*.”

‘A female role model for the times if ever I saw one, and of course the perfect person to be lecturing me about my mothering skills. Er…’

I have to agree with Peaches on this one.  Katie Price is no role model, and should not be pointing fingers, and Parpy is adorable looking puppy!

What do you think?

  1. We got our start with golden retrievers after the family dog (acquired from a box of pups given away in front of a grocery store) fiercely growled at our 5 month old baby. We wanted a dog that was safe around our growing children. With veterinary recommendations and references, we brought our first golden, “Bo” into our family. Our grown son now has Bo’s great-great-grandson as a member of his growing family. Our golden-baby interactions have always been supervised. That said, families with children should be selective about the breed of dog growing up with their children. There is no substitute for good parental care. And there is nothing as priceless as growing up with a golden.

    Wow, this is a big old mess of controvery. In my opinion, it depends on several thing.
    Do you already know how the dog reacts to the child?
    Has the dog ever bitten anyone?
    Has the dog spent time playing with the child before?
    Is there adult supervision… like there had to be in order to get this super cute picture.
    If your dog is supervised, well socialized with not just your children but many children, has never bitten anyone…ever, and you’re handy to supervise, puppy kisses are A OK.
    If the dog has a history of biting, you aren’t supervising, isn’t familiar etc. Then no, this would be a bad idea. Before a dog is allowed such close contact with a baby, they should be familiar with each other.

  3. As long as the dog is supervised then all should be well… I always said that if children arrive, leave the dog alone, they live here and I won’t allow kids to pull on their fur or treat them as a plaything. Dogs are not toys and once children learn to respect the dog the dog respects the child… I have always introduced my dogs to children and babies and refuse point blank to shut them out in the garden or away from children… I always think this is where resentment can set in and the dog gets resentful that every time a child arrives they get pushed out.

  4. I voted ‘supervised’, but what I mean is a combination of the two – gentle and supervised, and I mean that about any dog. I figure you give the dog and the baby a chance to get to know each other a bit, and to learn ‘the rules’ for interacting, and then you keep an eye out, because they don’t understand each other perfectly, so mishaps could occur. The idea that your kids should only ever meet your dogs over a fence is… weird. How b ig is this woman’s house? and how does she divide her time between her three dogs and her kids if they’re never allowed in the same place at the same time?
