Thanks for Saving Dr. Puggles

RECEIVED Sun., Nov. 13, 2011

Dear Editor,
    I am writing to share a quick story and commend a fellow citizen. On Saturday, Nov. 12, I walked my pug down to the Spyglass TacoDeli. I go there often because the tacos rock and the patio is pet-friendly. Things took a surprising turn when my dog was attacked by another dog there. He latched onto Doc's neck and would not let go. The owner managed to pin his dog down, but we could not get him to let go. One of the servers, Patrick, jumped right in the middle and gave orders to the owner while hitting the dog in the head. After a horrible few moments, the dog did release his grip. My dog and I were shaken, but the vet said no permanent damage was done. I just wanted to publicly express my gratitude to this man Patrick. He certainly did not have to throw himself into a dog fight, especially since he and I were strangers. But he did, and I am very thankful. It's beautiful to see people do the best thing in a situation and help out. I am truly grateful.
