There was a family whose dog that gave birth to twelve puppies. They ran an ad in the newspaper when the puppies were old enough to be given away. The ad said, "Free to a good home. Adorable puppies." After several weeks, only a few of the puppies had been given away. So, they tried a different tactic. They ran a second ad which said, "Free to a good home. One very ugly puppy and eight pretty ones." In two days, they gave away the ugly puppy nine times. Have you noticed that the world is full of caring people, always ready to assist the underdog? When we view people as naturally helpful, they often live up to our expectations.
