Throughout human history- dogs have performed service tasks for us. Some of the earliest documented cases occurred during the First World War- when- in the U.K. and Germany- guide dogs helped people with disabilities live fuller lives. In 1989 doctors discovered that a dog's nose- which harbors roughly 300 million sensors- could detect cancer cells with greater accuracy than lab tests- and scientists began to train service dogs to perform all manner of medical alerts by scent. Do Not Pet: A Service Dog's Graphic Tail follows the story of one such service dog- Ruby- who gave the author Joe Biel mobility- health- and companionship through the most difficult years of his life. This comic details their personal struggles with public awareness and accommodation and celebrates their remarkable interspecies bond. Topics include: the responsibilities and pitfalls of training a service dog- how to behave around service dogs in public- the difficulties of international travel- the history of working dogs in countries outside the U.S.- the laws and regulations of various countries- and much more!
