THE DOG FROM HELL
By Mariko Araki
I had a scary experience last Tuesday.
Last Tuesday evening, I went to the park with my dog, Moca.
Many dogs were running around there, I knew none of them.
When we approached them, suddenly one dog without a leash rushed toward us. I panicked and bent down to pick up Moca.
Fortunately she was safe but unfortunately I was bitten on my right hand by the dog. My poor hand swelled up and ached badly the next morning. Since then I’ve been unable to do my domestic chores.
The most regrettable thing for me is that because of that injury, I couldn’t see my classmates at a party which is held every 4 years in my hometown.
