Humans aren’t the only ones who use service animals. A horse named Charlie ended up adopting a goat as a seeing eye dog. Jack, the goat, decided to be a seeing eye dog out of his own volition, kind of in the way dogs strive to please their masters. In doing so, Jack saved Charlie from being put down. Jack led Charlie around for 16 years before Charlie passed away at the age of 40.

Guinea pigs can make good companions for adults and children. They are fun to watch and have a varied vocabulary. Once you get to know them it is possible to tell when they are happy, sad, excited or angry. They are not happy just to be left in a hutch at the bottom of the garden but need shelter from all extremes of weather and a run where they can graze freely, safe from predators. It’s vital that they are with another of their own kind. Gentle by nature, guinea pigs can be a good firsttime companion for a child (as long as there is considerable parental interest).
