That's only for the movies, Lee. You've been watching too much TV.

Do you want to hear something ridiculous, Meg?

I've been so lazy the last couple of days my self winding watch quit running.

WTF?

Now, that is really funny. A comedian could use that line. Lee, you have a career just waiting for you, writing funny stuff for folks to read. Keep at it. It brightens the day (well, not the drone comment; that hurts).

What cannot be achieved by technology and materials is the awareness gained by the dog's sense of smell, enhanced hearing and innate sensitivity to human behaviors (maybe through observation of physical cues, hormonal smells or something else). In many ways the ultimate early warning device.

Exposure to threat while at home, in public places and in the back woods are drastically different.
If I am out riding a horse in the woods, I would sure want to know about someone waiting out there for me before they knew where I was. A great farm dog will let you know that someone is coming up the road long before they get there.
Okay then get a JRT. They are smaller, easier to maintain, more alert, and eat less. They do all the things you just mentioned. Use their alerts to deploy your defenses accordingly.

I swear, Meg, the damn watch stopped yesterday afternoon.

I haven't tested the napalm loaded drone yet on any unknown threats I might run into.☺

Like Chris if I don't quit hijacking his thread!

I've always said a combo of a small, noisy dog and a big dog to back it up was the best canine defense you can have.

My last terrier (JRT) has been gone now for 6-8 yrs but he would alert on someone walking down the street a half block before my GSDs would notice anything.

That did get the big guys wound up though.
