When it comes to having a dog in college, should students spend their money on man’s best friend? I’ve always struggled with my own self-control when it comes to helping those in need. I’ve spent years doing community service through philanthropic events, so when I see someone in need, I spring into action. So, when I saw a pair of sad puppy eyes looking back at me from a dark crate, I dropped everything to help. I couldn’t just do nothing.
