8. Thank you, my dear true friend.

No, LEO thinks it's funny and ridicules anything I tell them as possibly untrue and certainly nothing worth their trouble. I wrote you a lengthier explanation but won't repeat it here, because I've squawked about it so often on DU that a lot of people are probably tired of it here too. But don't worry, I'm a tough old bird. No point in having window bars even if I could afford them because this house was built in 1915 around a sturdy 1848 slave cabin, and it would be the easiest thing in the world for anyone to break into no matter what. My 16-year-old chows died in '12, but now I have a couple of smaller barkers, and people know I pay attention. The mini beagle/pom wouldn't be any protection, but believe it or not a Jack Russell Terrierist has all the protective instincts of a bigger dog, and they're insanely fearless. My smooth-coat JRT is well over AKC allowable height, and she'd doubtless bite anyone she considered dangerous. The first time she saw and heard fireworks last summer, she'd charge the fence sounding like a pack of mad dogs every time they went off or sailed overhead. Molly cowered under my feet, but Brigid flew into a rage.

Most people don't know I traded my extended double-barrel Colt that looked like a sawed-off shotgun to my new handyman for labor, but I let people know when I bought it, so they'll think I still have it. I also keep wasp spray by the bed in lieu of pepper spray. The two dogs sleep in a spindle baby bed next to me, so there'd be no danger of their getting caught in side spray. Most lots here are about a quarter acre, and asleep or awake, the dogs know if anyone even walks by on the street.
