(WFAA Fort Worth)   Two high school girls have service dogs to monitor medical conditions, so naturally, they were going to dress them in graduation garb as they crossed the stage. Principal Douchey McKilljoy had different plans, however   (wfaa.com) divider line 187

I get the concept of service animals and all.  But in this case, do the dogs have to be with the girls 100% of the time?

And dogs in clothes is just wrong.  Regardless of what the clothing is.

"I'm making a stand about this, because I don't want other people with service dogs to go through the same harassment and bullying that both of us went through," said Kamry Ross

Your service animals are not your play toys, little girl.

This is not a "rights" issue. No one stopped them from having their dogs with them.

But the principal seems like dick. He could have not banned the dog outfits (what was the point of that?) It seems like an arbitrary doosh move and then he stood by it because he wants students to respect his authoritah.

That. Colleges have allowed them to be dressed for graduation, and there were no problems.

Just to play Devil's Advocate, maybe he felt that graduation was an important event that marks the completion of four years of hard work and study, and shouldn't be mocked by dressing up dogs in graduation gowns and having them cross the stage with the students who've earned the right to be there?

Truly hard to tell which person failed harder. Principal Douchey McKilljoy for being an ass about it, or the idiot teenager claiming that not allowing her dog to be dressed in a gown is some sort of civil rights issue.

There's either something being left out of this story, or else everyone in the neighborhood should be warned about this chick, because she clearly is all primed up to make false accusations against people she dislikes.

"I'm making a stand about this, because I don't want other people with service dogs to go through the same harassment and bullying that both of us went through," said Kamry Ross, whose dog Nike alerts her to oncoming seizures

I see what you did there.

Anyways, most airlines will allow you to fly with small animals. They make you pay for it and I think they limit the number of animals in the cabin. It takes a certain kind of crazy to want to fly with an animal when you're not moving cross-country or something (my wife does it, with a cat).

I love fake service dogs. They're a hell of a lot more playful than actual service dogs.

Even those beagles they have sniffing for produce at the airports are humorless jerks. How do you turn a beagle serious?!

I agree it is wrong. If you had airlines offer a way for you to bring your pets on the plane without worrying about them dying in the cargo hold it would stop pretty quick.

Newsflash: The majority of school administrators are douchebags.  Everyone wants to blame the teachers, but it is the administrators who typically fark everything up.

Shots has worn a variety of doggie outfits to school functions this year, including his standard service dog vest; a theater club vest; a homecoming tuxedo; and even a drum major vest.

Were I an education administrator, this is the last fight I would pick, but Jesus Christ this is stupid. Dogs aren't people.

Also, "oncoming diabetic attacks"? "oncoming seizures"? It sounds like there's a growing service dog industry creating new niches for product.

If the dogs completed their coursework and earned their diplomas then they deserve the same rights to wear a silly cap and gown as any other graduate.

I have a service dog to notify me when I'm getting too sober.

When I graduate I'm going to the ceremony dressed as a dog dressed as a person with a big sign that says "Praise Jesus. F*** the Mexicans." and I'm going to run to the media and scream bloody murder if they don't let me walk. Because nothing says "transitioning to adulthood" like being an obstinate, entitled attention whore.

Take away their gay sex. Seriously most beagles are gay and if it was not for the breeding programs they would have died out long ago.

Federal laws != rights.  Yes, the law says that their service dogs are legally protected.  However, that law does not extend to dressing up the dogs.  The principal is not preventing you from having your service dogs with you.  You are doing so by dressing them up. 

Now, with that being said, I think that the principal is being a douche on this, but that is just my opinion.  I can understand why the principal would do this.

I think obstinate is bit strong, don't you.  She did relent and stripped the dog of all his dignity.

This is a high school principal we're talking about.  They don't have to be self centered narcissistic power abusing douchebags to do their jobs.  It just comes naturally to them.

Umm...what they are referring to with "oncoming diabetic attack" is a hypoglycemia incident. Literally the persons blood sugar crashes, in a normal person this makes them moody and irritable, in a diabetic it can bring on symptoms like being drunk and eventually can lead to death. Very dangerous for those with Type 1 Diabetes and no joke for those with Type 2. Dogs can smell the change in blood sugar.

"Oncoming seizures" could refer to epilepsy and it has been known for some that dogs can smell an oncoming epileptic seizure.

You thought service animals were just for the blind?

So from what I've heard, trained dogs CAN detect oncoming seizures and similar by smelling the subtle chemical differences.

And the one time I've known there was a dog on the flight, it was well-behaved the entire time (And if I hadn't been sitting directly in front of it, I wouldn't have known it was there.)  At the end of the day, I'd much rather have a dog than a small child on the plane.

/Of course, since your other choice is "Let the dog die in the cargo bay", I'd lie too.

I think the girls' rights were violated not because the weren't allowed to dress up the dog's per se, but because they were threatened with handcuffs and illegal detention if they didn't comply with a totally capricious order from the principal. Isn't there something in ADA about intimidation or something like that?

They gave my dogs tiny construction paper mortarboards when they finished obedience school. The joy I felt from watching my dogs run around with those stupid farking hats on cannot be exaggerated.
