The voices in my head don't like you.

For a dog to behave that differently from normal you have to wonder if either someone showed up with goodies for them or it was somebody the dogs were real familiar with. A dog that reacts that way to incursions onto its turf normally doesn't change the habit randomly. A friend of mine was frightened because nothing ever happens in her neighborhood and then one night something very similar went down at a neighbor's house. The house was broken into and their German Shepherd that will bark at the wind without hesitation didn't make a peep. She never heard how it got resolved but when the police interviewed her to see if she saw or heard anything they were hinting that they thought it was somebody the family knew. Give it some time and try to figure out exactly what happened before you assume the dogs dropped the ball.

My Pittmix is probably the worst guard dog you could ever imagine. Way too loving and trusting of strangers. But until she is told to be quiet she will at least bark incessantly when she hears movement at the door. Then she will calm down immediately and switch to affection-whore mode when she recognizes you.

The cost of fuel to operate a 6000 pound 400 horsepower half ton that does 0-60 in under 7 seconds is kind of like the price of oil changes for a Porche 911. If you have to ask you probably can't afford it.

I have a lot of experience training dogs. I have trained my own dogs (they are labs not guard dogs). I have also worked second jobs at places that train dogs. I would probably get some help in training a guard dog just to make sure I am not doing it wrong.

Our male lab is usually only friendly to us. He even barks at people that we do know even though he knows them also. They must have had some kind of goodies or have been snooping around the house a lot when we are at work and what not.

Of course they might have been sleeping soundly, or too enthralled licking their balls to hear them.

OOH! Pics of the footprints! That's CSI level stuff! lol Sounds like your local PD is about as capable as ours here in Podunk.

I like your idea of a guard dog. Get a Rotty, feed him lean, keep him in the truck overnight. Coat your handles with steak juice and cat blood before you turn in each night. Leave the doors unlocked and by all means, point a motion activated camera at your truck. You won't wanna miss what's about to ensue!

In all seriousness, sorry that your stuff was stolen. It sucks when someone takes what you worked to own- whether it's an individual or our gov't.

It does suck. Back when I was single I had a room mate for a short time. His brother shattered a window in my truck (it was locked that time) and stole my checkbook and wrote a bunch of checks all over town, he over drew my account and wrote a lot of checks that were insufficient funds checks. I ended up having to pay all of that off, all $3000 of it.
I ran your ideas by my wife and she just looked and me and said "I wonder about you some times"
