I'm looking at doing shirts again. The sample shirt I had done last time, had the logo on the back. This rime, I'm thinking, logo in the front (not sure whole front or left pocket) and the slogan on the back.."We CARE for those who CARE for you!"...on tan t-shirts. Here's the mock up for the he pocket logo and the back...as well as the original back.

This dog and her favorite little boy completely transformed each other's lives. Jonny has autism and had trouble connecting with anyone, and Xena was rescued from a rough life and was desperate for human affection. Today on Soulmates, watch how Jonny and Xena immediately clicked — and took their mom's breath away with their incredibly touching bond 💙

Service dogs are medical equipment, and just like other medical devices, you probably shouldn't be asking to touch them.

What NOT To Do Around Service Dogs

08/22/2017

This was posted in one of the Service Dog groups I'm in. I got permission to copy n paste it! SUCH A GOOD STORY TO EXPLAIN WHY YOU DON'T PET SERVICE DOGS!!

In the emergency waiting room and this woman has a beautiful sd. She chose the most out of the way place, I can only assume so as not to draw attention. This family comes in, dad goes to check the patient in and the two boys see the dog. The older one reads the do not pet sign as he is walking up to him and stops himself. His little brother does the monkey see monkey do thing that is common with siblings but you could tell he REALLY wanted to pet. Then mom says, "oh its fine. Go ahead."

The SD handler stiffens up and I see her hand start shaking on the leash a bit. Now I was completely unsure if I should step in, but I have a hard time keeping my mouth shut when others are clearly uncomfortable. So I get up and tell the boys that they were right NOT to pet the dog and I was proud of them for listening even when it may be hard. Mom's face starts turning red and she starts ramping up to argue. I see she had an EpiPen in her hand and the younger boy is still scratching his throat absently. So to her I say, "that's like me taking his EpiPen at a restaurant. He may not need it and be fine. Or he may need it and not have access to it. People distracting a service dog who is working is taking away a 'medical device.' yes they are dogs and get time to be a dog and play and get pet, but not when that vest is on. She's here. Clearly she needs him."

Mom takes boys to the other side of the waiting room. The woman with the sd gives me a relieved smile. I sit back down and think about if I'll have the ability to stand up for myself and my dog in a year or so. Why don't people GET it?

Ever seen someone with their dog at the store and wonder if it was really a service dog? It's happening more and more, and Veterans are fighting back. The fake service dogs are making it more difficult for real ones to be taken seriously.

It's also a crime.

Watch the full story tonight on WUSA9 at 11.

Depressed Man Goes To Take His Own Life When His Dog Starts Acting Strange In Another Room

Whether it's bc you can't see, hear, have seizures, have diabetes, have severe allergies/asthma, ptsd, severe depression/anxiety, or other issues that require you to have a Service Animal or Emotional Support Animal!!!! Calvin saved me from committing su***de more times than I can remember!! Whether it was jumping on my lap while holding a bottle of pills, or just the thought of what he do do without me if I drove off a bridge. No one should lose their lifeline!!

A young man named Byron sunk into a deep depression after his relationship fell apart. He hit bottom and began contemplating su***de. After a day of heavy drinking, Byron made a noose and went downstairs to write a goodbye note to his family. When he returned upstairs, Byron found the noose clenched...
