Most people who know me (or even just those who regularly read this blog) know that I have a weakness for animals with jobs. If I think too long about guide dogs for the blind, I start to get a little teary. They’re just so noble! But dogs aren’t the only animals that have jobs, or that work as service animals to the disabled. This New York Times Magazine article, Creature Comforts, talks about miniature horses, monkeys, and even a parrot that help a blind woman, a woman with anxiety disorders, and a psychotic man make their way in the world, and about how their livelihoods are under attack.
