A dog or security system?

Around noon yesterday, someone kicked the door in to the neighbour’s house across the street from where we live. Then they ransacked the place. Upstairs, the newly-wed couple lost all their new stuff – loot from their wedding day. A DVD player, waffle iron, stereo. But they left the jewelry that was sitting on a table in their living room.

The student in the basement got her apartment trashed. But she was philosophical about it, “Better me with nothing then someone with kids.”

What a great attitude.

But now we’re replacing the lock to our garage and my wife is musing about installing a security system. I’d rather get a dog. A big, mean looking beast that drools on my kids, but makes everyone else fill their pants.

Maybe one of these guys. What do you think?
