Even worse is all y'all. I catch myself saying that sometimes.

These are such scary stories. I don't think my pets would do anything to save me in my time of need. *looks over at her betta, who flaps his fins a few times before going back to making bubbles* Nope.

Lol, I did have a big dog but she was a total sweetheart and wouldn't harm a fly.

You say that, but did she ever get put into the position of needing to defend? You would be amazed what a dog will do if they feel they need to

I have a sticker on my front door, "Protected by Smith and Wesson" as well as beware of dog signs everywhere. SO... We've yet to encounter a trespasser BUT on one occasion my FIL got combative with me and raised his hand to me. Glock (125 lb labrador) nearly took his arm off. Dude got 78 stitches and has had five surgeries. I was SHOCKED! I was really glad, but shocked. It cost four grand in lawyers to fend off my FIL's request that Glock be euthanized, but it was money well spent, IMO. I'd pay another 4 for him to be bitten again lol. I'm so glad that happened in Texas. I worry that anyplace else would have sided with my FIL.

To this day Glock will not leave my side if I'm asleep, and will challenge anyone that walks up to me or the kids. (If we approach them he's fine) He's become weary of old fat men because of the attack, but I can live with that.

Glad no one was hurt. That kind of violence or threat always worries me.

my dog is VERY protective of me (he won't let any males talk to me without getting by him first and if he senses their bad he'll growl and bark at them).... but he still let bad guys into my house. You can't assume robbers won't come into a house with a barking dog or that a dog will be able to protect you.

Hes around 70 pounds but I think when they got in my back door they kicked him or did something to hurt him when he was barking at them. at least he alerted me and woke me up. I knew something was up when he was still barking at the back door 10 minutes after the first knock on the front door

I hear ya. Glock is our second line of defense. The first being signs and locks. Whether he goes Cujo on a trespasser like he did my FIL, is largely up to him. All I need is about ten seconds warning so I can get to the kids. After that, good luck bad guys, cause I won't mess around with my family's safety.
