Took Rosie out for a game of ball in the parking lot. She was sporting her reflective service dog jacket as a safety precaution (@tristanicc, we’re twins!), but this also allowed us to walk straight to dinner since she was conveniently already vested.
It was a good test to see if Rosie would understand that she was working, even though she didn’t have her regular vest and packs on (and especially since she had been playing in the jacket). Needless to say she did great, and was on her best behavior. A+ for the scruffmonster.

In other news I got offered to lecture at a college about my art practice. This will be my second time presenting a lecture, but it doesn’t make it any less scary.

We are a shop (opening soon) run by two spoonies. We will be making custom working dog gear sold at fair prices. We will be making vests and capes to start, but plan on making collars and leashes as well. Eventually we hope to make patches. 🐾................................................................. #shoppingonline #localbusiness #customdoggear #servicedoggear #customservicedogvests #customservicedoggear #respectthevest #servicedog #sd #sdit #workingdog #workingdoggear #customvests #customvest

A nice tight tuck under a chair or table is important for any service dog to know. Some large breeds can't quite fit, but this Doberman does a great job of squeezing himself out of the way.
...
At our tharapy session today we had the waiting room to ourselves for a while. So we caught this quick video.
We always feel proud when others don't notice that there is a dog in the room.
He has never missed an alert from under a chair.
Pluse, this way no one tries to distract him while he's working.

I went to the vet 👨🏻‍⚕️ again today he said I am able to go for longer walks 15min max. I am also allowed to start swimming 🏊🏻‍♀️to get mobility and strength 💪🏻back. There’s a neat indoor pool near our house 🏠where my girl 💁🏻‍♀️can come in with me. So we’re going to try it out next week hopefully🤞🏻. (Swipe left to see more pictures of me swimming, the list picture my girl thinks is beautiful #beautfulbritishcolumbia 🐾partners🐾

Standing in the gym locker room after my swim, trying to change into dry clothes discreetly without falling over. Cooper is placed to my right and leaning into my leg for stability as I struggle with my leggings around my wet ankles (dignified, I know). This woman barged around the corner and thrust her hand towards Cooper's face simultaneously reciting"OH MY GOSH CAN I PET HIM". Sure. Ask after you already started petting him.

Scrambling to maintain what is left of my modesty, I teeter over half naked and smash my knee into the bench to my left and topple to the floor as she gleefully grabs at his face. Bless his heart, he tried to back away from her and resume his heel so that I could counterbalance against him to stand again. "Please don't pet service dogs" I puffed as I regained composure. "God. FINE" she scoffed before glaring at me and returning to her cubicle of lockers.

1) is there no dignity left in the world so that a woman can dress herself without being hassled?
2) why are you so upset when you literally just witnessed what can happen when you disrupt a service dog

Peep that supernatural gear set up 😍 this would usually be paired with one of her supernatural collars, but I’m feeling the tactical collar right now😍😍

Great training session tonight! He got lots of compliments and people were shocked that he’s only 7 months old! ☺️🐩 he boofed once when he saw someone in a big coat (his worst enemy!) but took correction well. #cutepuppies #dogsofinstagram #dogswithjobs #workingdogs #workingdog ##spoo #sdit #servicedog #standardpoodle #prong #poodle #prongcollar #mobilityservicedog #respectthevest #disabled #spoonie

I did not create this. However, it is an excellent chart that shows the difference between these 3 types of dogs. 🐾.................................................................

So, I’ve taken a vow with myself to start being as real as possible here. I see other service dog based accounts where handlers are so incredibly brave and raw and I’ve found it so helpful throughout my journey. At a time when I need support more than ever, I figured I’d use this opportunity to take a step back from just posting cute pictures of Maisie with silly captions to getting back to why she’s so important in the first place. 👍🏼
————— As I mentioned in a previous post, I’m now in the midst of TMS therapy. Do NOT let big pharma fool you. 🚫 It’s an extremely long process with a subpar success rate, and yes, it DOES hurt. There are also a number of very uncomfortable side effects (some possibly permanent) that have been reported but have yet to be listed. So far, it’s tolerable and I’m powering through every day to the best of my ability. 💪🏼 I believe it may make positive changes in my life and I’m more than ready to do whatever I can to recover as I approach my 5 year trauma anniversary, BUT, I do wish someone was honest with me that it’s not a walk in the park for everyone with no risk or discomfort and that it’s a long, long road that has a 1 in 4 chance of leading nowhere. —————
Other than that, life these days has really been giving me a run for my money. 😒 My ED relapse has been gnarly to say the least, my inability to stay awake is making my days short and unproductive, my doctor is now concerned about possible GP, my POTS/OH symptoms have been brutal, I still haven’t seen or gotten a visit from friends in about 5 months, and I’m now relearning to live without my biggest supporter. Everything is hard and confusing and I’m so damn tired, but coming on here and seeing what other handlers go through on a daily basis has been so inspiring and grounding and I cannot send enough gratitude to the brave souls who make themselves so vulnerable just to spread awareness and validation to others. Thank you to those who constantly remind me that the fight is worth it. One step at a time 💪🏼👟

I took this handsome beast outside to play 5x's today. He RAN for 20-30 minutes each time. Guess what... He's still NOT tired. Lol But he had fun. That's what matters. My girls have more sense. But he's more fun.
