Washing up for the weekend! The #americanswithdisabilitiesact provides service dog handlers the legal right to enter restaurants, hotels, hospitals and other public places. However, it is the handler’s responsibility to ensure their service dog is clean and tidy for such public outings. Luckily @petsuppliesplus has a dog wash station that makes keeping @americasvetdogs Charlie squeaky clean! #americasvetdogs #petsuppliesplus #dogwash #washdog #dogbath #servicedog #servicedoglife #travelingservicedog #labsofinstagram #dogsofinstagram

Chrome Update: Chrome had his follow up with the vet this week. I am happy to report that the antibiotic for the UTI is working. He still has a little infection but should be cleared up by the time he finishes the antibiotic. They also rechecked his glucose and that has resolved itself. Vet believes it was probably elevated from the infection. He loves his job and was super excited to be back to work. THANK YOU all for the love, support, and prayers!! #travelingservicedog #servicedogsofinstagram #dogsofinstagram #servicedog #allbetter #thankyou #update #happyandhealthy #backtowork

We made it home from Alabama just before midnight after our 42nd state for the @veterans_portrait_project #vppmissioncompletetour and our 10th stop for the month of July. Though we only had ten veterans in the studio yesterday, they were all incredible as usual. Featured here is a 50-year member of the @theamericanlegion and #VietnamVeteran William “Ed” Jackson. He served in the @usarmy as a Combat Engineer and Heavy Equipment Operator from 01/1967-01/69. /// 📷 @slpearsall /// 🇺🇸 @veterans_portrait_project /// 🛫 Thank you @delta for making our travel possible! 🛬 #nikond850 #nikonz7 #nikonnofilter #nikonambassador #deltaserves #veteransportraitproject #americasvetdogs #travelingservicedog #army #veteran #portraitphotography #studiophotography #photography

slpearsall. 40 states down and 10 more to go! Arkansas represents the home stretch

40 states down and 10 more to go! Arkansas represents the home stretch of the @veterans_portrait_project #VPPMissionCompleteTour and it was incredibly special for me. Little Rock is the hometown of the late Staff Sergeant Alan Shaw with whom I served with in Iraq. With the help of Andrea Fisher of Survivor Outreach Services, I got to meet and photograph his Gold Star sister, Terri Shaw Bailey, who also represented him in the VPP. #veteransportraitproject #VPP #goldstarfamily #goldstar #nikonambassador #nikonnofilter #americasvetdogs #travelingservicedog

Our Airplane Experience... 1. When I book my ticket, I look for an option to add a service animal. I always make sure to call the airline even if I add a service animal to my ticket online. While talking to a representative, I make sure that he doesn’t need any medical paperwork (rabies vaccine) that needs to be submitted, and I request bulkhead seating. 2. The night before I limit Triton’s water around bedtime and give him a really good workout, so he‘s nice and tired the next morning. 3. In the morning, I will give him some water before we leave but no breakfast if we are flying in the morning. I make sure he has gone to the bathroom before we leave. 4. We arrive at the airport 2-3 hours (the recommended time for traveling with a SD) before our flight leaves. I always take him to the bathroom again outside before we enter incase there isn’t a relief area inside or on the off chance they are doing a repair. 5. I usually check in for the flight online and don’t check bags unless it’s free, so we head right to security. If I wasn’t able to request bulkhead seating ahead of time, I will go to the ticket counter to request it. When we get to security, I leave all of his gear on. Once I’m almost ready to go through, I will explain to the TSA agent how I prefer to go through with him...have him stay in a down-stay on one side of the metal detector, I walk through first, call him through next, they can pat him down once he is through, and they can test their hands and my hands for residue. We have never had a problem with this method. 6. Once through security, we look for a service animal relief station. If it’s there, we take full advantage. Then, we head to the gate. At the gate, I will ask for pre-boarding which allows me to be one of the first people on the plane to give me a little extra time to get everything situated. 7. Once we are on the aircraft, I put down his airport blanket to keep any of his hair from getting on their floor and keep any nastiness from getting on him. If he is in a vest, I leave it on. If he’s wearing a harness, I will take it off. He usually tucks right in and falls asleep.
