Excerpt from My Life in Dog Years by Gary Paulsen
I am--I say this with some pride and not a little wonder--a "dog person." I make no excuses for unabashedly loving them--all of them, even some that have bitten me. I have always had dogs and will have dogs until I die. I have rescued dozens of dogs from pounds, always have five or six of them around me, and cannot imagine living without dogs. They are wonderful and, I think, mandatory for decent human life. All that said, there are some dogs that are different, special in amazing ways.... From the Trade Paperback edition.
