Photos showing a bride’s medical service dog taking part in her wedding have gone viral since being uploaded January 10. Bella helps her owner Valerie Parrott deal with chronic headaches and anxiety attacks and became the star of the show when she attended Parrott’s wedding January 9, even dressed up in a pretty pink dress to fit in with the dress code.
Photos of Parrott and Bella went viral on Reddit and Imgur and Parrott wrote a post about her experience with her “15 minutes of fame” on her blog The Dog in the Room. “The best part about this whole thing is that I can finally help educate more people about service dogs,” wrote Parrott. “So many people don’t know that service dogs can be used for so many invisible illnesses. The other thing is a lot of people look at a service dog team and forget that it is because of that partnership, that both dog and handler can not only survive life, they can thrive at it.”
Valerie's blog shares a lot about her daily coping with depression and the crucial role Bella plays in her life. https://thedogintheroom.wordpress.com/2015/06/27/to-help-you-understand/
Well! I wasn't expecting all of THIS today. Seriously, the craziest. Do you think Val (and Andrew and Bella!) needs a couple more previews since she is now internet famous? Yes? Okay I will oblige :)Posted by Mad Photo and Design on Thursday, January 14, 2016
