Working dogs in NYC

You can usually count on dogs to lighten the mood, but this dog is helping his person get on stage to make people laugh.

Comedian Brian Fischler recently received a dog from Guiding Eyes for the Blind. The organization spent a lot of time training the pup to work in among all the craziness in New York City. With his guide dog, Brian can now easily navigate the city and live a more normal life. His pup even sits on stage with him for his stand up comic routines!

The other good news in the story is that the Animal Medical Center in Manhattan has donated the use of some of its space to allow Guiding Eyes for the Blind to train more working dogs to be city-savvy.

Guiding Eyes and Brian even made it onto the Today Show!
