Hello – my name is Dellis. Would you like to have a happy go lucky kinda guy added to your family? Well, that’s me! I’m the sweetest baby. My foster mom taught me to sit. I’m very well mannered.

Please give me a forever home. I’ll give you lots of kisses!

We’d offer treats and belly rubs to three Georgia Court of Appeals judges, but that might be beneath the dignity of their office. From the Fulton Daily Report:
The fact that a dog bites someone doesn’t necessarily prove the owner is to blame, the Georgia Court of Appeals has ruled.
A panel of three—at least two of whom admitted to being dog owners during oral arguments and one of whom has a dog with a Twitter following—reversed a trial court judge and said the case should go to a jury.
“After he was bitten on the hand by a dog, John Ogden filed suit against the dog’s owner, Katie Myers. Ogden filed a motion for partial summary judgment on the issue of negligence per se, which the trial court granted,” Judge Tripp Self wrote in a Nov. 3 opinion. “Finding that an issue of fact exists as to whether the dog was carelessly managed under OCGA § 51-2-7 at the time of the incident, we reverse the order of the trial court.” Presiding Judge Billy Ray and Chief Judge Stephen Dillard (known dog owners) concurred. They reversed Fulton County State Court Judge John Mather.
Merritt recalled that Dillard and Ray mentioned their own pets and asked him in oral arguments, “How could a dog owner ever win?”
To be clear, the appellate judges are not saying the dog was not at fault for the bite. They’re just saying the dog deserves a day in court. The case is Myers v. Ogden, No. A17A1779.
