I had a bad seizure day and Colt a weim/lab was alerting non stop so I set up the camera in hopes of getting better footage then last time. When he alerted he came and laid his head on me staring at me, then got up on me, pushing into me, then started to paw at me. If I try to get up he holds me down by getting on top of me and pushing into me. Even if I tell him to get down and I try to get up he will come back and hold me down. I did this just to show what he does. I hope this brings awareness to the real work that service dogs can do and why it is so important to not distract a service dog from its job. With out his alerts I can't take medication to stop or shorten the seizure and I could stop breathing and die. Service dogs do serious work and it can be life threatening if they are distracted from their job.
