SilentSin tells us more.
OP here. I just wanna clear things up. I work third shift and go to college full time, so yes, I do take naps every now and then before work (usually right after classes), and the two dogs I own are a Pomeranian and a chihuahua terroir, both of which are two very small breeds of dogs. So for those saying that dogs are meant for protection, yeah, not these. Pomeranians are very defensive of their territory, so no matter who or what my Pom sees or hears outside, she'll bark like crazy. The chihuahua usually does the same thing; they bark even when they hear me open the garage door. No, I never heard the intruder break in and yes, I have trained the dogs both to silence the barking but only on command. So since they were in a different room than me, I went and commanded them to silence, and yes I didn't think there was a burglar in the house because like I said earlier, these dogs bark at EVERYTHING. Being distracted by the dogs, I did get KO'd but it wasn't for too long. I woke up only minutes after, called police and managed to catch the thief, so it's all good now. I hope this clears things up and that y'all have a fantastic day!

Actually @71 you have it wrong. Theft: when a person unlawfully takes and carries away another person's property without consent with the intent to permanently deprive the owner. Robbery: Essentially theft accomplished through the use of physical force or fear (ie if someone steals your purse after setting it down on a table it is theft. if they steal the same purse in a threatening way or by violently snatching it away it would be robbery.) Burglary: Though most often equated with theft, didn't actually require that a theft occur or even be intended. Burglary is simply the unlawful entry into a structure, such as a home or business, with the intent to commit a crime inside. Although many burglaries involve theft, the crime intended can be any crime from theft, to murder. A person can be charged with burglary regardless of whether or not the intended crime was committed. Additionally, the unlawful entry into a structure doesn't need to be accomplished by breaking and entering, although that is usually the case, it can be as simple as entry merely must be unlawful (ie trespass through an unlocked door).
oh and one more thing @71 Normal robbery is usually a second degree felony in most states, but can be a first degree felony if the robber uses a dangerous weapon or attempts to kill anyone or inflicts or attempts to inflict serious bodily injury. Burglary is a crime defined as the unauthorized entry into a building or dwelling, with the intent to commit a crime within the premises. Depending on the jurisdiction as well as the circumstances, burglary may either be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony.
What a shih-tzu time, sounds totally pawful
Lock your doors and windows if you don't want to worry about burglars. At least that way you can hear them break in.
Yeah, because we all live in the Home Alone movies... -_- In regards to the OP, I had a dog that wouldn't STFU once it was bedtime...nonstop barking for 4-6 hours a night! She was an outside dog, in a fenced yard, and where did she bark? At my bedroom window -_- EVERY NIGHT
