Yep. A big problem with the fakers is their dogs may behave well enough... until a real service dog (or another fake for that matter) walks in the door and it goes bananas and attacks. Dogs can be perfectly sweet to humans and stay calm and "professional" in public but also have serious dog aggression or reactivity issues. Jaye who is discussed a lot on the subreddit had a reactive animal named Hero that she would bring to service dog meet ups and then when it bit other dogs she'd go bananas over how it wasn't her fault. She's gone back and forth on "retiring" him, now that she has a new puppy. But she's also gotten him into "bitework" which is a dogsport technique that involves biting and holding onto a human decoy on command, then releasing on command – totally absolutely 100% unsuitable for a service dog to be doing.I'm honestly really stunned to learn that service animals are not required to wear any kind of uniform, the owners are not required to carry a license card of some kind, and they aren't required to be certified.
It's incredibly stupid. They're asking for people to bring an aggressive dog into a restaurant under the guise of service and it attacking a waiter.
The problem is if you make them carry some ID or proof of training, they'll just fake that, too. There's plenty of companies who will "register" a service dog for you and provide a legit-looking ID with the ADA law printed on the back.
Pretty sure it's a different doctor but can't be certain.Is this still Mama Bear? Or has Jonzie found a new doctor to latch onto? Also, Jonzie really needs a therapist she can call when she’s struggling to cope or a hotline of some kind. If I were a PCP, I would a) not give out my cell phone number and b) redirect the patient to a hotline or something because it’s not my job to talk them through their addiction crisis and I probably wouldn’t have the time. I’d also be pissed if a patient called me at 9:30 at night for that.
