Bad idea: burgling a home
Really bad idea: burgling a home with a dog
Neatorama-worthy: the dog is a gigantic 300+ lb mastiff guard dog, a breed of dog used in ancient times to fight other large animals, such as lions!
Here's a story of Cromwell the mastiff:
Of all the gardens in all the world, the thief had the bad luck to break into the one where Cromwell was peacefully gnawing on his bone.
The three-year-old English mastiff is a gentle pet. But his breed are also born guard dogs - and big ones at that.
Only the thief and Cromwell know exactly what happened next. But it can't have been friendly, as the dog's owner heard a 'scream, a roar and a commotion' from the back garden.
