Dogs and children can be wonderful for each other — when both parties are well-mannered and the interactions are supervised. But they can also be a deadly combination, a tragic fact that has hit one family especially hard this week.
On Sunday morning, a 20-year-old man was watching his niece, 16-month-old Kavay Louis-Calderon, at his house on Westmoreland Street in Akron, Ohio.
Police said the toddler’s parents had dropped her off that morning for her uncle to babysit, according to WKYC-TV.
At some point, a 20-year-old female acquaintance came to his door and the two started arguing outside, the report said.
