This happened 3 years ago today . . .
Stanley is a hero! This morning, while we were all cuddled up on the big bed, sound asleep, he heard a noise so he started barking. Our pawrents kept telling him to "LEAVE IT". Dad got up and checked out front and thought maybe Stanley was barking at the newspaper delivery people.
So we tried to go back to sleep and Stanley kept barking and grumbling. He would NOT stop! After a little bit mom heard a noise and so dad got up again to check it out. Dad walked into the kitchen, looked out the window, and saw a man looking in!
Dad was shocked! Our backyard is totally fenced and the 2 gates are ALWAYS locked. And in order to get to that window, a person has to go up about 14 stairs onto the deck. Dad jumped into action and grabbed the man.
Mom heard the commotion so she came into the kitchen, Dad was calling 9-1-1. The man was sitting in the kitchen, sort of confused (drunk). The man stayed in the chair but when he tried to move mom shouted for him to sit back down (she used a big HBO word) or she was gonna hit him with the flashlight she was holding. The man was shocked and sat back down. About that time the police came to the front door and took the man away.
