Toddler plus Dog Equals FOOBar: the unexplored issue.

It seems to me that Lynn has ignored a very important reason that the Pattersons ought not have a dog at this point in their lives: the issue of child safety. So far as I can recall there has been very little attention paid to the very real threat that an active pet poses to a child under five. It may be that Connie's objection to Elly falling for Mrs Baird's trap is that her friend will have to spend her time hovering over Lizzie; too bad that Elly seems more focused on cleaning up after the dog than making sure her kid doesn't get hurt. This is why we had a blanket "No" last Labor Day week instead of a "Not yet."
