We all have our favorite guns for home defense, but how many still depend on the oldest deterrent of intrusions known to man, the dog. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying dogs should replace good armament, but it's awfully hard to beat a dog's senses, especially hearing, when it comes to knowing something is not right and coming your way, and after all, we can't defend ourselves unless we are first alerted :zzz:. Nothing beats a dog for that! I just can't imagine someone continuing an attempt to break into my house at night once Jake and Buddy who sleep by my bed start barking. In Montana, where an extremely high percentage of people own guns, an intruder would be suicidal :crazy: not to turn tale and get the hell out as fast as possible as soon as the barking started. Besides Redman and me, who else uses dogs to enhance the safety of their home?
