by David Bruce
This book contains 250 stories about good deeds, including this one: Gary Paulsen, author of "Hatchet," loves dogs. Occasionally, he makes a dog lucky. He goes to the dog pound and says, “Give me the next one you’re going to whack.” He doesn’t even ask about the dog’s age, breed, sex, size, etc. He simply saves the next dog that is scheduled to die.
