(I put in bold the comments I think readers here should pay close attention to.)

Hours before being mauled to death by the family pit bull, 12-year- old Nicholas Faibish had been told to stay in the basement separated from the dogs, said his distraught mother, Maureen Faibish, who called The Chronicle on Saturday, trying to make sense of what she called a "freak accident."

"I put him down there, with a shovel on the door," said Faibish, who had left the boy alone with the dogs on June 3 to run some errands. "He had a bunch of food. And I told him, 'Stay down there until I come back.' Typical Nicky, he wouldn't listen to me."

Take a look at this site -- Mr. T and Me -- dedicated to handmade Mr. T dolls.

Featuring the most amazing collection of over 150 vintage Mr. T Dolls, all handmade from the original 1984 pattern, all lovingly collected and brought to you by Greg Rivera.

Miss Martha Originals, through a license with Big T Enterprises, (Mr. T’s licensing company) created a pattern book, complete with full glossy color pictures, to create your own “soft sculpture” Mr.T doll.
