The biggest compliment you can get is that nobody saw your service dog in his down-stay under the table.

I’ve been paying more attention to these signs. They always make me smile now. The wording on this specific sign is absolutely perfect 👌🏼 Makes me feel like they know what they’re talking about.

I’ve been waiting for these photographs to share my happy news 🐾💕 I recieved a very generous 500$ donation towards my dog from the Foothill Rotary. The ASDEC Came with some of the dogs and their trainers to help celebrate. Everyone was in on it except my husband and I (obviously i would have worn something nicer than my work scrubs if I had known 😂) also the mayor and city manager both attended. I will be making a post on the gofundme page tonight with more information for those who are interested 💕

ORDER HAS BEEN SENT!!! Thank you to everyone who ordered a tee shirt! You should receive your shirt in about 14 business days (give or take) as they will still need to be printed and shipped to me before I can ship them out :) —�— If you do not see your Instagram tag on here, and you ordered a shirt through instagram, please contact me. —�—

In case you’re questioning if my paw balm works ;) My husbands elbow before paw balm and after. This photo was taken immediately after first application, but in reality you need to use it for several days in a row to REALLY see results.

Me and Kasey today 🐾 We worked on commands off-leash. Worked a lot on temptations. Left treats out all over the floor and walked over them instructing the pups to “leave it.” All the dogs did soooo good, seasoned pros!

I also wanted to share a short story about this cup on the left here.. I made two of them for the rusty roots craft show, and the man who bought it was a high school teacher 😂 He said he bought this cup just to see what his students would say. Made my day.

Oh my goodness!! Check out this spoiled pup! Her #dogmom @gracie.meets.world purchased some things from the shop just for her. Who could resist that face?!? I am still taking orders for shirts (I am three shirts away from placing the second order!) and of course i still have my custom dog bowls available along with some new cat-sized bowls! I also still have #pawbalm in stock. Will also begin taking orders for cups soon as well.


Can't slow down now. Proceeds are obviously not pouring in the same as they were in the beginning, but I am working for my dog and I will get there in time :) Thank you all for your support! #goingforgolden

I've been so busy with other people's orders, this is the first item I've made for myself :) #spacelazercat modeled after our kitten named Skippy. 🐾

Guess what guys?! I now have SMALLER bowl sizes available!!!! This bowl hold 1 qt - size is 6.5 inches across the top and 3 inches high!
This bowl is a good size for smaller dogs or cats! I only have 3 currently in stock, until the store restocks next week. Message me if interested.
It is still 10$ per bowl because (believe it or not) the small bowl actually cost more than the bigger ones do.

Its been a crazy week with so many ups and downs. Monday was the worst day I had in years, i took a new anxiety medication and it completely and totally knocked me on my feet. I wasnt able to walk or move in the way i usually can, i felt paralyzed. It was horrible. I wont be taking it again. My husband had to help be a counter balance for me even to walk. My pup could have helped so much in that regard.
But enough of that, I had a GREAT day yesterday, my husband and I went to dinner and ice cream, and we bought some new crafting gear for my Silhouette. Every day is a new day, they can change dramatically from one to the next. I feel its going to be a great rest of the week ;)

Can we get back to the real reason I own this account tho? This is Kasey. Kasey is about 14mo old. He has trained his entire life, since 2 mo old, for public access and the ability to help a disabled person. He has worked his whole life- for someone just like me.
In all honesty, most days I feel like I don't need this dog. I feel like I can handle myself, I can overcome it alone- i don't feel disabled or any different than anyone else. Then wham, The anxiety hits me and brings me back down to reality. I need this dog. I would love an extra 15 mins of warning that a panic attack was coming. I'd love for something to read me better than i read myself.
Last week, a lot of you know, that I dislocated my jaw completely out of place. I was in pain for a while and had to postpone my fundraising sale. Do you know how that happened? I popped it out of place by yawning repeatedly- causing a stretch of the ligament that holds my jaw in place. I am still working on getting back to normal But - I wasnt yawning because I was tired, I was yawning because thats the first stage of me having panic attacks. Thats the first sign an attack is coming on, one of the symptoms.
Now I know your thinking "if you know thats a symptom why cant you medicate then?"
Because in all honesty, I never realize that I've been yawning. I don't realize it until I'm already midway through the attack.
This is actually a great precursor- because I can have a dog trained to notice that and alert me to it/ so i can recognize an attack coming beforehand.
Little things like that could be so tremendously helpful. I can't wait.
