Thank You, God

So thankful today
Our dog Freddy is okay
Attacked yesterday

In a parking lot
A large white pit bull
Leaped and lunged

At our dogs neck this
after being groomed for first time
we stopped at pet store

for treats and toys and
the monster ran from its car
and attacked Freddy

It all happened so fast
I grabbed Freddy’s leash and
Lifted him high to the sky

Putting myself between
the foaming monster
and my little dog

The owner of the dog
ran over and grabbed
its collar, yanking the monster

away saying he plays
with children just fine but
does not like other dogs

then why was this dog
at the largest pet food store
in Western Massachusetts

And the man with the tattoos
and gold plated teeth and the poor dog
walked away and drove away
