I’m glad to hear you are okay!  As far as dogs go, we have a small and a large dog.  The big dog barks but the little one is the killer.  He has a really scary growl and a few times people knocked on the door he didn’t know and he flung himself in front of me as if he were going to protect me no matter what.  Don’t underestimate little dogs.  Most people don’t want to break into a place no matter what the dogs size is because it makes such a racket that they are put off.  My dog is a Chihuahua and he may as well be a Pit Bull because for the most part people don’t want to be anywhere near him (and hes not yappy!).

OMG I can not believe that guy was still trying to get in after he realized someone was home. Glad you are safe.

@ChocolateLime:  I agree with Mrs. Christopher about little dogs! Often little dogs don’t seem to realize how small they are and will try to defend their family against danger. I’ve always had poodles or poodle mixes (most recent dog is a 15 lb poodle mix that we adopted a few years ago from the local humane society). Poodles of all sizes are very loyal, protective dogs – even the 4 lb toy poodle I grew up with seemed to have the heart of a lion!  They definitely will bark fiercely against anyone they think is a threat.

I am so sorry this happened, at least he didn’t break in your house!

@zomgwut:  bareass naked with an ax… now that is an image I want for the rest of my life! And to think it was all a video game… Ah, the rush, the adrenaline, and the anticipation!


I had a scare. We (my son and I) lived in a house that was built in the back of another house. basically this house was built in the backyard. So in this house there were stairs going up to the 2 bedrooms and bathroom. I had just moved in that day and the furniture was upside down and the boxsprings were still downstairs, we had brought up the mattresses only. So the house was a jumbled mess. Well, at around midnight, I was woken up by someone very tall staring at me at my bedroom door! Well, my son is only 2 years old so very short. So I froze solid but shouted “Who’s that?”

And the very tall lanky man ran back down the stairs and I was listening but heard nothing after that, he didn’t open the door to leave, or anything, I feared he was still inside, maybe hiding in the downstairs closet? I called 9-1-1 or 0 for operator (I forget what year 9-1-1 came into effect) wispering, they kept me on, telling me that the cops will be there soon, and I was still frozen stiff! And the girl asks if there was anyone else in the house…. OMG my baby! I had just watched the stupid babysitter movie where the guy asks “Have you checked the children?” So that’s what she said! “Please go and check on him” I started crying and said “I don’t want to…”

So I had to almost break my bones (I was so frozen) to get up to check on him (he’s okay) and come back to the phone. The cops came, took my statement and left.

A few weeks later…. I see the “very tall lanky man” open the window of the front house and without a sound, “dove” inside. (So that’s how he did it! He dove in through the window! And went out the same way… hence no sound!) He is the brother of the guy who lived there. Since it was a crack house and a safe house for the “Canadian Outlaws” (canadian version of the “Hell’s Angels”) I decided to leave well enough alone and keep quiet, nothing was stolen and nothing happened.

From then on, I can hear a pin drop… I don’t sleep soundly anymore.Frown

 Why is it… when our guys are out of town things like this happen?

Apparently your protective motherly instinct has already kicked in @ 7 weeks and that’s a very good thing. Thankfully you heard this guy and called the police, I bet the people down the street are too!!

My husband is away this weekend and I asked a girlfriend to stay with me. Even though I’ve been alone for days at a time when he’s been out of town I just thought it would be fun to have a “slumber party” kinda thing. In the event of someone trying to bang on my door and trying to break in I’m not sure what we’d do other than freak out. Maybe we should get a few baseball bats to sleep with…lol!!!

I’m glad everything turned out ok.

@zomgwut:  I like you.  I can’t even begin to tell you how awesome it is that your go-to is a battleaxe.


OP, I’m so sorry that happened.  That sounds terrifying.

omg deep breaths hun. So scary! I’m so glad you are okay – I would have dropped a brick on his head from the window upstairs.  You’re so brave – way to keep calm! Hopefully he won’t be returning any time soon.
