    Default Molly just earned some extra breakfast...

    So I woke up at 4:30 this morning after a nightmare that somebody was trying to break into our house with guns, I noticed the house seemed more 'creaky' than usual but thought it was probably just the wind so got out of bed, turned the light on my phone so I could see and went to the bathroom. I was laying back in bed for about 30 seconds and then Molly started barking insanely aggressively (in the garage), so I grabbed the light on my phone again and started walking down the hallway to tell her to be quiet. When I got to the foyer where our front door is, I heard somebody running for their life along our veranda and down the stairs, I panicked a bit and rather than looking out the window, I ran to the bedroom to get my partner. I should have looked out the window but I just didn't think, I was naked so felt more 'exposed' and in my dream, they had guns haha! When my partner looked outside, our front gate was wide open so I definitely wasn't imagining it.

    We rang the police but they weren't interested as I didn't see anybody, they didn't even ask where in Australia we were from which I thought was a bit silly in case they also had other reports in this area, we noticed our neighbour's light was on at the same time too so I'll go over there later and see if they had a problem as well.

    My partner is at work now and I'm sitting on the couch completely freaking out as it's only been an hour and is still dark so he/she could still be hanging around. Our house is built so every bedroom has a glass sliding door that leads to our veranda, we always leave our glass door open and screen shut of a night because we get a lovely breeze but last night I ran outside quickly for something and forgot to lock the screen again, so I'm hoping they weren't in our bedroom at some stage (nothing is missing- and I've checked in all the cupboards and under beds ) and I seriously hope the perve wasn't looking through the curtains and watching me sleep naked.

    We cleaned our garage out yesterday and there were a few groups of 'suspicious' looking people walk past (we spent a lot of extra money buying a house in an 'upper-class' suburb but lately there hasn't been nice people around) so I think they might have seen a few things they wanted (motorbike) but didn't realise we had dogs.

    So anyway, VERY thankful to have Molly right now because Meika and the cat did nothing and she will be getting lots of cuddles, belly rubs and extra breakfast this morning!

    Omg How scarey for you.
    I'm a bit of a sook now with stuff like that due to past experience, even with all my guys and a houseful of people I would still be freaked for days.
    Well done Molly. Extra pats from here
    Glad your all ok.

    I would be freaking out! My dogs seem to constantly bark now and with my partner working away I always get freaked out. I was out the front last night looking around to see if any people were out cause they were carrying on so much

    Thats pretty full on...but i dont think you'll have anything to worry about now they know ya have a dog.

    My wifes always suss on things at night...even me walking in the room when its dark has freaked her out before !!! (i'm not that creepy)

    One night i heard her jump out of bed and start yelling "oi, oi" and the dog going off.....so without thinking i went from totally asleep to jumping through the windows mozzie screen and full pelt running down the road chasing this prick that had my lawnmower !!!

    He ran off into the bush and i lost him...i stood there yelling at him all sorts of nasty threats. Thats when my neighbour and his brother ran out to see what was going on (1.00 am ya see)......it looked hilarious that both of them where only wearing jocks...then i clicked thats all i had on too

    So we devise this plan that they go one way down our street that looped on its self and i'd go the other...this prick is gunna get a lawnmower up his backside !!!

    So here i am semi naked walking through the neighbourhood at 1.00am looking for this scum when i come across a green Ford truck that i knew none of the neighbours owned...sure enough the keys are in the ignition....BINGO !!! I took the keys and walked home to ring the cops but the wife had already done it.
    So i tell the other lads about the keys and this truck...off we trott to have another look.

    Then the best outcome i could have ever hoped for happened. Heres this scumbag sitting in his truck looking everywhere for his keys !!!

    He didnt even see me walk right up to the truck !!
    "What are ya doing mate "...i asked him.

    "Ahh,ummm,ooo,,ahhh".... Thats all i needed.

    I opened the door and belted the living $h!t out of him...a huge headfbutt first then just went to town with my fists. Messed him up big time...blood everywhere i didnt care...my neighbour eventually dragged me off him.

    So then theres 3 dudes with next to no clothes...a blood covered scumbag.....and a good 10 minutes at least till the cops would arrive !!
    He gave every excuse under the sun...claiming i had the wrong bloke.....he was going to charge me with assault ..,, ..

    Waiting for so long he nearly had me convinced i did have the wrong bloke and as his eyes kept swelling closed more and more i was beginning to think it was me that was going to be arrested !!

    Anyway the cops rock up and take statments from us all. He gets locked up and i was actually congratulated by the copper !!..who by the way didnt write down anything i said about beating him up !!

    For me it was the perfect ending to what was a pretty freaky, somwhat scary at the start event. I think back now and thank my lucky stars the bloke didnt have a knife or gun on him. It would be a diffrent story if he did. !!

    Anyway Kristy..sorry for the ramble but give Molly a big belly rub for been such a good gaurd dog !!!! I hope she loved the extra breaky and try not to let this fase you too much mate.

    I know what you mean Jadie, my partner used to work away too and it was terrifying when the dogs would bark. How are you going with cooking that bub? Must be about time to pop! So excited to see photos!!

    Thanks for the laugh Sean, I'm NEVER sleeping naked again. Bloody perve would've seen everything cause the curtains were open and flashlight on my phone is pretty bright.

    The more I think about it, the more I wonder what they were doing up here and the more I worry. When it got daylight I went to have a look around and realised my car was in the driveway, completely unlocked with my handbag sitting on the front seat which he could've easily taken, and my partners ute had $3000 worth of engineering stuff in the tray which wasn't touched. I'll attach a photo of our house and you can see the garage and laundry is downstairs and everything else is upstairs via the veranda and the laundry window was wide open so he could've gone in there if he wanted, I just don't understand why he would come up the stairs, especially because its so exposed and every other house in the street is much 'safer'. It seems like he was after something in particular.

    The only thing I can think of is we have an empty esky on the veranda and he had taken the lid off it so was maybe looking for some booze. Who knows! Hopefully he doesn't come back but if he's after something in particular (or is a peeping Tom) it worries me that he knows the dogs sleep in the garage so knows where to stay way from. I'd bring them into our bedroom but Molly doesn't bark when she's with us so I'd rather her in the garage warning me if she hears something!

    I'm probably overreacting but I hate feeling unsafe in my own home.. Might need to borrow Bronx and Mojo

    Bloody oath that light of yours is bright...i couldnt see anything running back down the front stairs !!!

    Geez Kristy..give yourself a smack on the hand for leaving your handbag in a unlocked car overnight !!! The cops here are now dishing out $40 fines to anyone who leaves there cars unlocked because parts of Bundy have recently had lots of unlocked cars broken into. We live in what everyone calls the posh part of Bundy right out on the coastline away from the scum in town, but while i am guilty of leaving my cars unlocked i try make sure i dont leave my wallet in there. Cant be to carefull anywhere mate.

    Get your man to fit some sensor lights so anyone coming up the stairs or over that left hand side balcony gets lit up....you'll find them handy when you come home at night to.
    Play the damsel in distress or wake him up with every noise you hear night after night till he does it......but dont freak out if a cane toad sets them off !!!

    I tell you what, I never want to annoy Sean...

    I always wear something to bed - just in case I have to get up in a hurry. Neither evil hound or myself are much good at sleeping through noises. It does depend a bit on what the noise is. A couple of times I had a house guest in the other room and according to evil hound - he was not allowed to make nocturnal visits to the bathroom. So I don't think she'd be all that considerate about letting burglars sneak around either.

    I do try to check out what sets her barking - most of the time it's been pigeons or the neighbours cat tho - so a lot of false alarms. She did let my brother come into my house when I wasn't there though. I guess that's a good thing. The lawnmower man needs to be more careful.

    LOL jadie, I reckon if you ever have intruders you should be giving them a standing ovation for bravery ... even if your dogs are licking them to death. I wouldn't be too worried, whilst Staffies are very friendly creatures they are also some of the most loyal dogs I've ever known so if your safety became an issue i'd be recommending the intruders dial 000 and asking for an ambulance.

    Sean .... well what does one say, I guess maybe have an emergency medical kit ready for the person who's dumb enough to try to break into your place LOL

    Very Very scary stuff

    I know my boy will bark up a storm if anything is out of place in his eyes. Been a little cool at night so the ceiling fan was off just settled down for sleep when the boy went ballistic so much so he nearly fell off the bed, barking, growling and backing away...

    In the end I had to lift him up to have a sniff of the fan, then turn it back on before he would go back to sleep... He still kept giving it the crazy eye until he was happy it wasn't coming to get him...

    Haha I'd hope so! Hopefully their bark is enough to keep idiots away Luckily we seem to live in a pretty good area and we've only had something sus happen once. A car full of guys and their Pit/Staffy rocked up, went through 2 gates around to our back yard. Thank god my Partner was home at the time and they quickly left.
