Dedicated To All The Abandoned Dogs,

Especially ĎPit Bullsí Who So Many Hate;

Iíve Helped Rescue Many Very Loving Ones,

And This One, Deserves A Much Better Fate.

A mother and young son were leaving a playground

When a menacing man approached them, with a knife

ďDonít make a sound; give me your money and car keysĒ

The mother now immediately feared for her young sonís life

Before she could even react, or do what this mugger now demanded

A very compassionate Pit Bull now mysteriously appeared on the scene

This canine immediately put himself in harmís way, and charged the man

The mugger now quickly fled in terror, and soon, was nowhere to be seen

The remarkable part of this remarkable story is that this abandoned dog

Now quickly jumped into this womanís car waiting for the police to arrive

Since this dog was a stray, he was eventually taken to a local animal shelter

And thanks to him, the mother and son he defended, were happily still alive

This extremely courageous homeless canine has been named ĎAngelí

And the two complete strangers whom he saved, now plan to adopt him

I sincerely hope this brave homeless dog now receives the love he deserves

Guardian Angels come in many forms, and dogs truly amaze me without end

©2011, Mr. Ed

Hooray for "Angel!" It don't mean you're weak if you turn the other cheek, sometimes you've got to fight to be a dog. Patrick

Wow, great story.
I think Pit Bulls are much maligned, as are Dobies.

Awesome story, Ed! It's so wonderful to hear about happy endings for animals!!!

Reviewed by Tom Hyland 1/3/2011


Pete's real name was "Pal," and he was owned and trained by Harry Lucenary. The distinctive circle around his eye was originally unplanned. When the spunky pit bull made his "Our Gang" debut, a circle had been painted around his eye and would not come off.
