Story time from last week. Some lady comes up while we’re eating lunch and I she asks “oh did he go through trauma? (PTSD Dog patches) Does he have seizures? (Seizure Alert patches) I was so confused for a second before it registered in my head. Why would I take a dog like that TO A RESTAURANT AND WORK IT 😅😅😅 people I swear, sometimes they make me scratch my head and go hmmmm. We’re such strange little creatures.

; Its supposed to feel like 108 today 😩 stay inside!

We haven’t left the house for a week😅 so today we went the the mall to do some drills and eat. Plus we got to try out our new @poodle_paws_gear harness!! He worked on a martingale today and did great! Alerted to me holding my breath a couple times. Stayed in a down when people can up to ask why he is wear shoes. All in all very good day! He was wagging non stop😂❤️ #blacklabpuppy #labpuppy #labsofinstagram #americanlab #fieldlabrador #9monthsold #floppydogears #servicedogintraining #pscychiatricservicedogintraining #mobilitydog #respectthevest ————————— Follow our Pawtners!

My elbows sublux multiple times a day. Most of the time they don’t hurt but sometimes I have to grab them and do it rather than this method of just straightening them. Sorry I wasn’t able to hold the camera out further. My ankles are the other joint that slides out multiple times a day. - - Check out our pawtners 🐶🐕🐾 @hearingdoghanalei @cai.the.service.saviour @sdit_atlas - - - - - - #chronicillnesses #chronicillnesswarrior #servicedogteam #respectthevest #medicalalertdog #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #POTSieSTRONG #dysautonomia #chiarimalformation #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #traumaticbraininjury #ehlersdanlossyndrome #eds #zebrastrong #ComplexPTSD #mastcellactivationdisorder #connectivetissuedisorder #goldenretrieversofinstagram #goldenretrieverservicedog

Holy guacamole you guys, I just realized we hit over four thousand followers today. 🥑 It wasn’t too long ago that this baby scruff monster and I first dipped our toes into the service dog and Instagram community, and it has been one hell of a ride. Some of you have been here from the beginning when we completed our CGC test and were doing our very first public access outings. Many of you have been along for the (very) bumpy health ride of one diagnosis after another, several hospitalizations, multiple infusions, and countless medications. Some of you came to see me struggle with training like having Rosie hold absolutely anything in her mouth or get over her fear of refrigerators. Others of you have tuned in and come to relate with traumas, early or recent. But many of you, most of you, are here because you see something in us and something in this amazing, wonderful, incredible, lifesaving, ridiculous, goofy dog. I am so unbelievably grateful to my followers and to this platform to share my experiences. It has connected me with the most incredible people - handlers, spoonies, and advocates alike, all over the world (it even keeps me connected with Rosie’s original shelter). I have access to the purest hearts, the best memes/comedians, sage advice, unique insights, crafty problem solvers, and true compassion. I can find all of that here, even when I cannot always find it immediately around me. So thank you, all four thousand and some of you (even the bots and the weird accounts that keep changing which dog breed they’re obsessed with). I hope I can keep providing content worthy of your “follow.” Here’s to more Rosie pictures. #rosietheservicedog #servicedog #servicedogteam #servicedogsofinstagram #medicalalert #medicalalertdog #psychiatricservicedog #tasktrained #tasktrainedservicedog #notalldisabilitiesarevisible #respectthevest #dog #dogstagram #dogsofig #dogsofinstaworld #dogsofinstagram #instadog #dogoftheday #dailyfluff #mutt #welovemutts #shelterdog #rescueddogsofinstagram #dogs #alwaystraining

Lack of sleep is a huge trigger for me. I haven’t slept more than a few hours a night for the past few nights and so I’ve been having frequent panic attacks and dissociative episodes. What’s amazing though is that it isn’t completely disrupting my life. Days like these used to keep me at home, paralyzed with intense fear and anxiety in my bed. Now it’s 15 minutes on the floor doing DPT and I get right back at it!⭐️ - #servicedog #servicedogintraining #sdit #dpt #respectthevest #donotpet #dontstare #disabilityawareness #disability #ptsd #cptsd #panicdisorder #dissociation #anxiety #gad #depression #ocd #pmdd #labrador #labmix #dogsofinstagram #workingdog

We went for another adventure today 🗺 She behaves so well I love her. Her posing can be hard tho lmao so I dont get many pictures while out. We usually just enjoy our time together. Today we saw a rat snake 🐍 and a blue tailed skink 🦎 both are firsts for her in the wild. Today was nice, not too hot just humid so I could stay out a lil longer 😊🌾🌳❤ ☆☆☆ #smoothcollies #smoothcollie #collie #psdit #sdit #serviceanimal #servicedogintraining #blue #bluemerle #merle #respectthevest #collieofinstagram #puppyofinstagram #dogsofinstagram #workingdog #training #welltrained #rarebreed #purebred #dog #down #respectthevest #nature #dayoff #walk #naturetrail #marsh #luckydog

Hey guys I’m back! The 3 countries I visited were amazing! I went to Jamaica, Cayman Islands, & Mexico. Sadly, I didn’t bring Baylee due to other countries quarantine & nonexistent laws for service dogs. I was a little on edge the whole trip but thankfully no full panic attacks! ❤️ - - - - #sdit #servicedog #servicedogintraining #GSD #germanshepherd #assistancedog #germanshepherdsofinstagram #germanshepherddog #workingk9 #medicalresponse #respectthevest #servicek9 #emotionalsupportdog #yorkshireterrier #yorkie #esa

Hello 👋🏻 friends! As I’m sure many of you have seen & noticed, a lot of Etsy shops 🛍 are going either out of business or switching platforms because, again, etsy is raising their fees for sellers to market their goods to you. Rest assured, our shop will remain open. Despite Etsy making it harder & harder for shops to stay open, I know it’s a site that a lot of you, as consumers, trust to handle payment. So far, our prices will remain affordable but if the prices were to increase, you will be the first to know. New designs will be appearing in the shop soon. I’ve had family in town & haven’t been able to work on Designs. Thank you for your patience. _________________________ #WatchmanGearCo #etsyvinyl #spoonie #chronicillness #invisibleillness #smallbusinessowner #etsyseller #decals #decalstickers #spoonielife #endthestigma #vinyl #servicedog #respectthevest #patchmaker #servicedogpatches
