Oh yes, just the bark and the size are something to be scared about! :)

There is one in my MIL's house.

That's a lot of protection

We had a German Shepherd. Strong as a bull! And quite literally, we ended up using a bull chain to keep him from running off after a cat or a squirrel (to play!). One day, we heard this Gawd awful crash, followed by bumping and banging. We looked out to find her had pulled the entire porch off the house... and it was across the yard and jammed up against the fence!

Gorgeous Shepherd! I thought about my Labs for this theme, but they aren't very intimidating. They might lick you to death, but that's about all.

Ladykli said...

That's a beautiful type of protection!! We have a border collie who would probably pee on the bad guy and then want to play frisbee with them LOL!

Here's my proctection.
