Harry the Hero

Dette er en af mine engelskstile fra 9. klasse, som jeg fik 12 for.


1. Harry the Hero


I have the bravest dog in the world. No seriously, I mean it. His name is Harry and he’s a St. Bernard. He is not even full-grown yet; he’s only 9 months old.

Yesterday he saved a little girls life.


My family and I were on the beach. My five-year-old sister was building a sandcastle with my Mum, my Dad was sun tanning and my brother Dan and I were listening to some music while reading car magazines. The weather was very hot. The sky was clear and it was completely calm.

Harry was running around near the water’s edge. He had never been to the beach before, so he was very excited. 

We had been there for about an hour when Harry suddenly froze. He was in the middle of digging a hole, but he stopped and pricked up his ears. He looked towards the water. I removed my headphones and looked in the same direction as him, but I couldn’t see anything unusual. He lifted his right foreleg and stood completely still.

Suddenly he broke into a run. He sprinted out into the water and when he couldn’t reach the bottom anymore, he began to swim. I was wondering what he was doing, but I couldn’t figure it out. I tapped my brother on the shoulder.

“Dan, what do you think Harry’s doing?”

Dan looked up from his magazine.

“I don’t know, maybe he’s seen a fish or something.”

I watched Harry swimming. I still couldn’t figure out what he was doing, but then I saw something in the water. I squinted my eyes, as the sun was very bright. In the water – maybe a hundred metres away – was a little girl. She waved panicky with her arms and she struggled to keep herself afloat. I jumped to my feet and suddenly I knew what Harry was doing. That girl was about to drown and he wanted to rescue her.

“Mum!” I shouted. “There is a drowning girl out there!”

My Mum looked up and began to scream. She stopped again as we could see that Harry had already reached the girl. I saw that the girl held on to his collar and that they were on their way back to us. Within thirty seconds they stood on the beach. The girl was shaking. Harry was extremely overstrung; it was obvious that he was proud. I was proud, too. My dog just saved a little girls life.

He was amazing. He was a hero!


And from that day, Harry was known as Harry the Hero.
