Service Dog Demonstrates Its Ability To Protect Owner's Head In The Event of A Seizure

August 9, 2017


This is a video of service dog Colt (a Weimaraner/English Labrador mix) demonstrating his technique for protecting his owner's head in the event she has a seizure. Now that is what I call a good boy. Me? I am also a good boy. "You have never not been on my naughty list." Dammit, Santa, your criteria are too strict.

This is how Colt is trained to block my head during a seizure, because I have a TBI it is very dangerous for me to hit my head, I can literally die if I hit my head really bad again. This is only a reenactment, this is NOT a real seizure.

The video really did bring a tear to my eye. Mostly because it's crazy to think there are actual well-trained dogs out there who help save lives, meanwhile I woke up to my dog literally trying to eat me after I passed out on the couch Saturday night. You know the little piggy who had roast beef? Well she bit off and swallowed a piece of him.

Keep going for the video while I call Cesar Millan for the thousandth time.

Thanks to Abigail, who agrees dogs are the best. Unless you're a cat person, then cats are the best. Very few people will argue pet rocks are the best.

    Dogs are the world best people

    The cat, meanwhile, watched disinterestedly for a moment before going back to licking its anus.

    This would be way more adorable if I didn't hate dogs so much. Then again that dog isn't my dog so he's ok in my book.

    I guess I just hate my dogs.

    Please don't even joke about Millan. He's a terrible trainer who relies on forceful, outdated methods.

    The one and only thing that Cesar Milan had right was teaching the human. He taught the humans incorrectly but... AT least he got something right.

    Oh man, brings back memories of the time my brother didn't get his morning whiskey and started flopping around right in the middle of my other brother's wedding photo shoot. I had to hold his head off the ground like this dog. I feel 'ya lil buddy.

    Two photographers there, they didn't even shoot it much less have the wherewithal to start rolling video.

    What would the world look like today if canines had been favored more than primates in the evolutionary process?

    Certainly greetings would be a lot more entertaining.

    My best friend told me that if I ever have seizures, even though I am perfectly healthy, that she would buy me a laughing dog and that they would both laugh at me if the seizures ever started.

    HUBREE: You're the best and cutest kitten in anywhere in America and the Universe. You give the best hugs and kitten massages out of all of the massages that I have gotten from massage places and from Irina.
    IRINA: Let's practice playing strip poker soon.=)
