Pets are often viewed as members of the family today. It is not uncommon to dress up pets in cute little outfits, refer to them as your baby, or even buy them luxury items such as a bed that is probably more comfortable than your own. However, a variety of pets such as horses, dogs, cats, and goats often are not only companions, but hard workers as well! Horses can pull great weights behind them whether it’s a cart, an old-fashioned plow for the fields, or the Budweiser carriage in a parade. Goats provide a source of dairy. Cats help keep the vermin population down. Dogs can guard, herd animals,keep down vermin population, hunt, and even rescue humans! Dogs assist the police and military. Dogs and miniature horses can be service animals to the disabled. Animals are a truly amazing resource!
