One night I heard some noise from the sitting-room. When I went to look what it was, I saw a thief who was entering in the house through window. I hid behind the armchair and asked Saint Nicholas from Bari for protection. Suddenly I had an idea to bark like a dog. The thief got scared and ran away without taking anything. I thank for that.
