It’s a literal fluff issue. Well, and scale, feather and fur issue. In this week’s cover package, we take a look at an organization that pairs service dogs with veterans, tour an exotic bird sanctuary, and find out just what the hell is going on with the practice of horse massage. We also check out the Nashville Zoo’s behavioral-training efforts, meet a couple who cares for a menagerie of reptiles, and look at how the pandemic has affected our furry friends.
