We lived paycheck to paycheck in a suburban area. We couldn’t afford to buy property in Idaho, while it’s still a dream. We have slowly stocked up on short term and long term food and water, bought heirloom seeds and learned to garden, loaded up on firewood for two huge fireplaces for cooking and warmth, but that’s about it. Recently our son, honorably discharged from the Armed Services, came home to start his life as a civilian. He owned a 9mm and promptly proceeded to purchase a .22 handgun for ma and pa. The problem was, we couldn’t find any ammo, anywhere. We are a long way from being prepared, but better off than most people we know. We decided to get a guard dog. The difference between a guard dog and a watchdog is the guard dog is trained to protect the family using aggression, while the watchdog will alert the family by barking and making a fuss (with not much to back it up). Our Brittany Spaniel is a good watchdog. She barks at every new sound, when she needs to outside, and when she thinks it’s time to eat. I think she trains us.
