I am thinking in addition to installing a better, less penetrable bedroom door, I need to install an anchor I can attach her to before opening the door.
my thought was more along the line of being barricaded in a room because of an invader and asking police to be patient while I secure her and secure my weapon, while not leaving them thinking I am preparing an attack.
I would never ask police to accept a dog bite, which is why I am asking. I believe they go through too much abuse these days.
Perhaps a more demonstrative example is I am walking my dog and am approached by someone with less than valor intent. Although I think being with my dog would make me less a target, let’s say I have to engage. I would look for a tree or some other item to restrain her afterward. Police come and my pup is obviously tense. God only knows what the circumstance this would happen. Is there any case or plea to law enforcement that a plea to not shoot my dog would be honored? I am assuming not. I would be at the mercy of the criminal, lose my dog and get arrested. Not that I blame the police, they are under so much stress., especially if firearms are involved.
Guess a pet is not a valued life…
