D.M. Dutcher  | 340 comments Hi, I remember reading this short story about a human who is sent to act as a seeing eye dog for an alien sculptor who has become blind. It was in the 80s, I believe in the magazine of fantasy and science fiction. I think the title might have been "Guide Dog" but I'm unsure. I'd like to know the author to track down other books by him. Thanks.

Which of his book/s? I'm not finding "Guide Dog" or other fiction on Goodreads. Books can be manually added, but I might just be missing it.

If this book is on Goodreads, or can be added to Goodreads, I'd like to shelve it. Please post any link(s) here. Thanks!
