There was a split second there where his like, “wait, what? bro what are you doing?”
On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human.
Therapy animals save lives.
These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury.
Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!
Shout out to Cesar Milan for making me feel like a total dildo when I rollerblade with my dog
The typical “da fuq are we even doing this for, mom?” look I tend to get from Jayne.
If I see one more gorram picture of someone throwing a baby on top of a pit bull for the soul purpose to show that they’re not dangerous I swear. I DON’T GIVE A SHIT WHAT BREED YOUR DOG IS STOP PUTTING YOUR BABY ON TOP OF IT THAT SHIT AIN’T COOL IT’S DANGEROUS, NO MATTER THE BREED.
Saw a Frenchie with a choke collar today. What the hell is wrong with people?
