Took Mama out on the town today! Doctor’s appointment, pharmacy, and a couple stores. My lady needs me! 😉😘💪😏
PSA: if you see a dog with a harness similar to this on... Do NOT: *bend down, get in his face and attempt to pet him
*start calling him over to you
*walk up and pet him
*start calling and whistling to get his attention *offer him some morsel of food you’re eating *make an ignorant comments like, “must be nice to take your dog places, you don’t look disabled, you should save that handicapped spot for someone who ACTUALLY needs it, etc.
*assume that just bc you CAN buy a harness online and bring your dog places as a “service dog” you should - real service dogs do not react to other pets (nipping, lunging, growling, aggression, barking at, etc.). It puts REAL service dogs at risk because they are submissive and won’t fight back if attacked. It’s a danger to that service dog and their handler to be focused on an aggressive dog in normal places like a doctor’s office or grocery store.
*Ignore his drop-dead gorgeous face and personality *smile (you can tell ME how handsome he is)
*ask if you have a question
If we are out and about together, he’s working. He works hard to protect me and alert me to seizures and anything on the do NOT list can distract him from his job.
Yes, he gets paid very well 😏😉. If you want to pet random dogs; legit go to a shelter and volunteer. DO NOT APPROACH A SERVICE DOG.
