    nor the arrow for its swiftness,
    nor the warrior for his glory.
    I love only that which they defend.

    Glad it was just a scare and got you thinking a bit more about SA.

    No treats for the pup for a day of two for letting you down like that.

    The victim of a crime is not assumed at fault due to a lack of SA. When the BG gets to choose the time and the place, unless you are hold up in your house, SA will only take you so far. You and your dog did fine.

    As for the dog, he is just a dog, not spider man, he would never think, with all those people around, he needed to doubt your judgement on the level of alert. Good boy.

    ONe can't see absolutely everything at all times, learn from the 'hole' in your SA and move on.

    You did fine, you can't be on high alert 24/7, you handled the situation. I try to ask them a crazy question back to keep them off guard.

    I have an Impala with convex mirrors on each of my side mirrors. Between that and the rearview, there isn't a single blind spot on the car. By the time someone is out of the mirror, they are either at the window next to me, or far enough behind me to be in my rearview.

    I am on a strict diet. Get to the part what you ordered and how was it?

    Were you "lerking" around at McD's earlier in the day by any chance?

    Don't be too hard on the puppy-dog; huskies weren't bred to be watch or guard dogs, and generally tend not to be at all territorial.

    That's AWESOME!

    That's for sure. I don't do it often. I'm too cheap now to pay for garbage very often, but was out, over hungry, and it was close. And the dog likes the chicken nuggets..

    The mgr would likely have called for the police to come out and take a looksee.
    Forgot to mention that I DID just that. They didn't seem to give a squat.

    A Husky? Heck no, but he probably didn't know that. Everyone who doesn't know better assumes he's a wolf.

    That would get my WIFE thinking I wanted another dog!

    I've tried those in the past. I just don't see enough in them to get used to them.

    Angus burger, and nuggets for the pup. Bleah. Always regret it after eating there.

    Yup. It's true, and I'm find with that. He's just my buddy, and the "talking too" I mentioned was just tounge in cheek. No doggie feelings were hurt in this situation.

    IMHO, SA is the most important part of personal defense. Without it you won't have a chance.
