Annotation

The story is told from the point of a dog, with much of it satire aimed at human behavior. But then aliens arrive and ask it about humans, and, in response, they apparently improve the behavior of some of the people and provide a massive infusion of material goods, which initially produces a eutopia but then corrupts them.
