    This is what I count on my Rottweiler for (although it can be any breed) I deal with the dog hair, the 'I know how to open the fridge and help myself', the occasional accident in the house - I deal with all that, not because I am a dog lover but because chances are what awakens me in the night won't be two BG's standing over my bed, but the dog barking it's fool head off while running towards whatever point of entry is appropriate.

    It makes my heart hurt that someone can beat a 79 yr old man :(

    Here in Texas our 79yr old home invasion victims pop the bad guy in the throat and take his weapon.
