This appeared on the Bouvier e-mail list in 2002. Another friend sent it to me from another source. It's had several different titles, but I've chosen "Poetic Justice".
It's about who it is that deserved to be punished when mistreatment and neglect so badly spoil a dog's temperament that the dog eventually bites someone.
By the way , in many cases where a child gets bitten it's because the parents were not supervising, parents had not taught the child how to behave towards dogs, and the child did something really unpleasant to the dog.
I have rescued and re-homed several dogs whose history was neglect and / or mistreatment, even rescued one badly abused. They turned out just fine. Dogs are remarkably resiliant and adaptable.

When boredom set in with no fun and no work,
The police were called in to sort out the mess,
