So you’ve decided it’s time to get a watch dog to protect yourself from intruders. But the choice is not an easy one…
1) First off there’s the crocodile in Peter Pan who bit off Captain Hook’s hand. Quite an impressive resume! But how long can he stay out of water? Do you really want to spend the money on a guard crocodile AND a moat?? After all, moats aren’t as cheap as they used to be.
2) Fluffy didn’t actually succeed in guarding the sorcerer’s stone in Harry Potter, so that may be a point against him…but was it really his fault? And while he might not have as good of a track record as the crocodile, with three heads his bark would be three times as loud as any other animal’s alarm. So that would be reassuring.
There are, of course, many more pros and cons of both animals to be considered. But you are a discerning customer! I’m sure you’ll do your research and make the right decision.
Now that you’ve weighed the evidence, it’s time to make your choice. Let me know why you chose what you did in the comments below (and let me know what you think the crocodile’s weakness might be…).
