Dogs, two



Dogs assist disabled people in many ways. For example, they guide the blind and serve as “ears” for the deaf. In addition, dogs lift the spirits of patients in hospitals and nursing homes.

Dogs have also entertained people for centuries. In earlier times, audiences enjoyed betting on fights between dogs and between dogs and other animals, such as bears, bulls, and lions. Many countries now ban such fights.

Today, such contests as dog racing, field trials, and obedience trials draw large crowds. Dogs also perform in circuses, on stage, in motion pictures, and on television.
