Animals are very special creatures. Some people believe that they are heavenly messengers who are meant to make us better, kinder, and protect us from all kinds of evils. It may sound silly, but I once learned it firsthand.

My furry guardian angel

This incident happened about 10 years ago, when I was a senior in high school. It was about the middle of February and we were preparing for the exams and therefore often stayed late after school. That day we left school when it had already been getting dark.

I took my usual route and, strangely enough, was not afraid of anything. A big dog that looked like a German Shepherd ran up to me. At first, I was frightened, but then I realized the pooch was kind. The animal followed me as if wanting to see me off to home.

When I was almost near my residential building, a car stopped next to me. There were four tipsy guys sitting inside, and music was playing loudly. One of them got out and started to insist that I get in the car. When I tried to run away, he blocked my way. At that very moment my tailed companion bit the insolent guy's leg. He got scared, got in his car, and drove away.

Out of gratitude, I hugged the dog, and together we walked to my porch. I turned around to hug my savior again, but he was gone. I told my grandmother this story and she said it wasn't just a dog, but my guardian angel.
