There Is No Dog Chapter 28 Summary

  • Later, Mr. B asks Bob about Estelle. She isn't his type, so obviously he barely even remembers her.
  • Mr. B tries to go back to work and get the lovely Estelle out of his head. Hey, we've got just the thing: how about thinking about the world's senseless suffering?
  • That does the trick. Mr. B wants to help people, but the thing is that, once you start helping people, other things tend to go wrong. It's the whole butterfly effect thing.
  • As usual, Mr. B's mind turns to thoughts of whales. He promises himself that he won't leave Earth until he saves them.
