Mark Twain's story A Dog's Tale first appeared in Harper's magazine in the early 1900's. It's a short story, about 50 pages it tells the story of a dog growing up with her family and the irony of being truly good in an indifferent, often cruel world. The story has Mark Twain's humor, but also a lesson in irony. I really enjoyed this story. ( )
