You don't want to mess with Texas moms - or their dogs. That's the lesson a home intruder learned on Monday near Granbury.
The masked man, wielding a small knife, got into Ashley Carter's home on Lake View Drive, knocked off her glasses, and tried to cut her. Ashley's three kids were asleep in the house, and she has a fourth one on the way.
She smashed a vase on the intruder and called for her dog, Rowdy. The dog chased the man out of the house and down the driveway, biting him in the midriff as he fled.
