Animal Stories

Susan McHugh

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter discusses intersubjective operations among cross-species to examine how literary fictions present service-animal relationships. It examines Baynard Kendrick’s novel, Seeing Eye Dog, and the series, Blind Justice, to explain the relationship between narrative representations of human–animal service and social rights movements. Public accessibility is seen in most animal narratives. Human–animal services were effectively promoted through novels, films, and television shows featuring blind men with guide dogs before public access was guaranteed for disabled people in the United States.
