  5. I have PTSD. I know how a dog can redirect ones pain away from the mind. I was victim of child abuse. I learned how to live with the bad memories that wake me up in midnight. I have no dog of my own but feel that dogs know how we feel and give us the attention we need to move on.

    About 3 months ago I saw a guys pickup on the back it read BLACK LABS MATTER.

  7. The U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division, Disability Rights Section gives the ADA requirements for service animals:

    "Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties. "

    Note that PTSD is specifically mentioned (all of those who claim dogs for PTSD are emotional support animals — they aren't).

    What the company is doing is setting itself up for a lawsuit — a Federal Lawsuit. It's a wonder they can be so nonchalant about it.

    It would be nice to get a link for that second interview, don't you think?

  9. The Veterans with PTSD Service dogs fought for our Freedom everyday and this is some people treat them? I wouldn't do that to a Veteran. Service dog or not. Treat them the same way you would an elder. Respect them for giving you your Freedom! They have a Service Dog for PTSD, THEY ARE STILL VETERANS AND STILL HUMAN LIKE THE REST OF US!!

  11. This pisses me off, and I'm against many service dog users who are just gaming the system. This guy served TEN years in the military, much of it in combat. He's not taking advantage of the system. Other people have already said it but it seems he has a slam-dunk discrimination claim.

  12. This man was hired as a technician. Cincinnati bells script to customers getting installed goes as this. " when the technician arrives someone 18 yrs or older must be present. for the safety of your pet and the technician, please secure any pets" therefore it would be hypocritical to allow this. i have Cincinnati bell and they respect our vets.

  13. I would think the law dept. of Cinn. Bell might have different idea than HR as to what's legal and what isn't. I hate to say it usually, but in this case the man offered up his life and served his country, wounded as he was, now the sue the hell out of Cinn. bell. Good luck patriot.

  16. I noted how the interviewer said " a bucket of pills"….obviously he has preconceived opinions on mental health medications! A number of therapies assist in treating mental illness including medication, pet therapy, exercise, CBT therapy, diet and supplements, etc, etc!

  18. Oh brother… He made it through interview with out his dog. This is bologna… my Dad fought in Normandy, North Africa, The Rhineland's… so forth. He made it through life without taking his dog to work with him.

  19. Emotional support dog is not a "Service Dog". Look it up, first paragraph of the ADA. This is more abused than a Handicap parking hang tag in Florida. If you have done your job successfully for a year and a half without the dog, than this is an attention grabber and a stunt. If it's not, find a job that is more conducive to your situation. Thank you for your service, and too all those not seeking the lime light who served, God Bless!

  20. Uhmmm…I call bull shit!!

    As a business owner, and proud employer of veterans as well as civilians, we do have some employees that require medical assistant devices, included service "pets".

    With that said… all medical assistant devices are welcomed as long as they serve the purpose of helping you do your job properly. If that medical assistant interferes with you doing your job is NOT ACCEPTABLE. regardless if it's heavy medication or a service pet.

    I'm not going to allow you to put yourself, our company, and our clients in danger because of a service pet or the side effects of medication…. PERIOD!!

    I don't know the details of this story, but something just doesn't seem right.. and my veteran employees agree. There is more to this story.

  24. As a vet myself, I have to say all this stuff about "service dogs" is preposterous.

  25. I would understand from the company's position if it was a food service job, or sterile environment for medical supplies, but this guy can have the dog travel with him in his work truck.

  28. Honestly this "service dog" bullshit has gone too far. So he needs his dog at his work? Just as the PTSD issue is so very overblown (example: I was approached by an Air Force retiree who wanted to give me hints on how to con the VA into making them pay me PTSD benefits and I replied that I was an HONEST vet, so sorry. Another AF vet who retired I met working as a desk clerk in a hotel. I started up a chat because we 20 year guys like to swap sea stories. He mentioned how good he had it with retirement and his 80% disability benefits, a disability that did not affect his job performance or communicating with others, and BRAGGING about how he conned the VA out of that 80%.) I have an acquaintance that is a medical professional with the VA that has constantly berated me for not making the effort to "jump on that band wagon" because I am the ONLY retired service member she has EVER met that does not get some disability. The ONLY ONE. Honestly, I am beginning to feel like a real chump…..

  30. I would say if it was a blind guide dog they would not actually block it. My guess is that they do not like the fact he served his country. Many of the left are haters of American culture.

    They are probably the same types who spat on returning vietnam veterans.
