    another door to door alarm salesman came

    Advertisements
    to the house today. Telling me that Mrs. Jones up the street said there was a rash of break ins in the area. So he was going to do me a favor and sell me a security system. He said he noticed that I didn't have a security system (because he didn't see a sign in the front yard). I said, "who advertises theirs anyway, I want someone to break in here". He looked shocked and peered over my shoulder to see my 160 lb. wolf shepherd mix and tells me that most thieves don't worry about dogs, there are ways around them. I just laughed and tell him, "don't worry about the dog, I'll get to them before Hanibal will".

    The guy says, "yeah you look like you could defend yourself pretty well, have a nice day" and left.

    This makes the third one in the past year that has been told the same thing.

    I'll trade you my dog for your dog.

    My dog lets anyone into the yard/house.

    Only thing she would do... is lick someone to death.

    We had one of those people come to our house a few days ago. My DH was carrying in ammo cans and shotguns and Kiwi our bullmastiff was sitting at the front door watching everything. The salesman didn't make it up the driveway all the way before saying "Never mind, Looks like ya'll have your own alarm system" then turned and left!

    Im making a sign this week that says "Whatever your selling Im not buying."

    Its ridiculous they try selling me:
    *Meat: #1. I am not going to buy meat off some weird man driving around with meat in a freezer in the back of his pickup.

    *Cleaning solutions: #1. Telling me that its safe enough for my son to drink...probably isn't going to make me buy it. #2. I buy my cleaning solution when I have a coupon for it.

    * Vacuums: #1. I only invite you in because you vacuum the same spot on my carpet for like 40 minutes. That part of my carpet is spotless when you leave. Thanks. #2. I will not spend $2,000 on a vacuum. What do I look like Hue Hefner. I don't have money coming out my ears do I?

    They all say the same things too. "So and so down the street decided not to buy his whole lot of meat so I have some left over. I'll give it to you for a great price"...

    To the meat people I reply: No thanks I'm a vegetarian.

    They don't knock here and try to sell face-to-face. They put a flyer on your door, ring the doorbell and keep walking to the next house

    ok you asked for it....

    Hanibal as a pup


    this is Hanibal next to DW's rescue Lexy who is 11 and retired Army dog (baddest dog on the planet if your a man except for me of course)


    He loves DW's other rescue, the pugliest dog on the planet


    This is what Hanibal does if someone comes through the front gate....no lie. This pic was taken after the old lady next door came to bring me tomatoes



    He is seriously a giant baby
