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!
Some of you may not care, but I just wanted to post this…
Sharing these would be avatars again to announce the passing of another follower milestone over the past week. Mine is one of the few (and very spectacular) ‘dedicated to Brendan’ blogs out there and I feel quite an achievement to have reached the amount of followers I have. (I know I need to get out more). We are a small band, but I am proud to be one of the handful of blogs dedicated to Dave and hope we can all continue together on our quest to spread the word of Coyle for a long time to come.
Amen M’Homey, preach the gospel of Coyle till the end…
Totally agree with TSR, spread the word sister

They need to bring out Series 2 on DVD, purely for the fact it will mean better quality caps.
