Helpfull Dogs!!

Imagine not being able to reach a light switch, pick up keys when you drop them, or open a table drawer. Then imagine having a dog that could do all of that and more for you.

As well as being great fun for everyone, dogs can help people with physical disabilities. Dogs can be trained to pick up fallen objects, open doors, and turn on and off lights.

Dogs can also help people who are deaf or have difficulties with hearing. Hearing dogs can alert their owners by touch when they hear different sounds. They can be trained to recognize sounds such as the telephone, a baby`s cries. knock at the door, an alarm clock, or a name. Dogs can even indicate witch direction the sound comes from.

Guide dogs can help owners who are blind or difficulties with seeing. Actually, it`s not the owner who guides the dog. For example, dogs cannot actually read traffic lights the owner decides when to cross the street by listening to the sounds of lights or cars. Howerver, the guide dog will not cross the street if it sees danger.

My old sister had a dog named “Bo er” 3 years ago.But Bo er caught a disease and died last year. It was grievous,so I am afraid to raise a dog although I like dog very much.

Indeed,some of people have eaten dogs.but it`s a custom.so people first.but it is less and less.and I think saving it can solve the danger of food.it`s inspired by some people eat other animals.but as property right.er…I heard a news they could not find any supplier.they stole dogs of the private family by poison that cause some of people who eat dogs were  affected by poison.I think they dare not to eat dogs.and supplier violate a law.
