I had to walk through an area filled with undergrowth to get to the shop. It was not too unpleasant except that I had to keep to the narrow footpath and not blunder into the bushes.
Buying some flour from the shop seemed harmless enough. The shop was the nearest one and my mother reckoned I was old enough to run a simple errand for her.

Suddenly I heard a growl from within some bushes. A ferocious dog appeared in front of me with its fangs bared. I froze. If it were to attack me I knew I could not fight it. I had heard that if you keep still, a dog would not attack.

It worked. The dog came up to me and sniffed me all over, but it did not bite me. I trembled with fear but dared not move.

After a while it lay down beside me. I thought it was safe to go, but the moment I moved a leg it stood up and growled fiercely again. I was trapped! The dog would not let me move. What could I do?

I waited in fear. As long as I remained still, I was all right, but how long could I stand there like that? My feet were already feeling numb.

Then I had an idea. The shop was just a short distance away. I shouted "Help! Help!" with all my might. The dog looked confused but did not attack me.

The shopkeeper heard my shouts and came to investigate. The dog, which was obviously his, wagged its tail and folded back its ears. He quickly brought a chain and tied it to a post. I was so relieved. The shopkeeper apologized and gave me a free packet of flour.

What a frightful experience it was. Anyway I never had anymore trouble with the dog. The shopkeeper kept it tied up at all times.
