Sounds like they both have separation anxiety.

Psychiatric service animal for separation anxiety?  That's good; I'll have to remember that when I need to take my dog someplace that normally doesn't allow dogs...

...I didn't read the article, but aren't service dogs for blind people? How the hell does a blind person, even if it is 'only' legally blind and not blind-blind, hang glide?

Maybe you could try reading the article.

I'mm thinking that reading the article would answer a lot of questions, but I'll go ahead and answer this for you. SERVICE DOGS PERFORM MANY SERVICES FOR PEOPLE..

I work about 2 miles from this mountain, get to watch the paragliders./hangliders every morning from my office window. Brought in my peepers to get a better view, it's pretty cool, and even a cool sight when you're tooling down the Interstate, because they are jumping right next to it...Some mornings there are a dozen at once. Today I only see 5, with another 4 or so standign there like they mught go up next.

This late middle-aged man has a "service dog" for separation anxiety? What a nation of babies we've become.

Hey, whats wrong with "working the system" I suppose, when the system increasingly controls everything? At least American innovation still has an outlet: we used to try to run our businesses better or try to invent the better safety pin and such. Now it's figuring out which goverment forms to fill out, or looking for loop-holes in the bureaucracy.

He takes his dog hang-gliding? I think he might have separation anxiety.

And many people abuse the privelege of having a service dog (like my step mom). Waaaah, I need special accomodations.....

Didn't read TFA but if you need a service dog, WTF are you hang gliding?

Some definitely do, but I can tell you that when I was single, I definitely needed a dog. I don't really have family, everyone's pretty much dead, or my adoptive parents farked up the relationships by spreading a bunch of lies.

Either way, I can see someone being a few steps down the road form me and needing some kind of companionship, and I can see a dog filling that role. Could be the thing keeping the guy from deep depression...

JESUS PEOPLE, RTFA.... These things aren't epic novels anymore, that era has pretty much passed. Is 308 words REALLY that many?

Shadow's companionship helps McManus cope with separation anxiety, but the dog's desire to always be by his owner's side made flying difficult.

Not to be morbid about this, but if this guy has separation anxiety now, I hope that dog lives a loooong time or he's gonna have a rough time later.

Of course I'm serious. This if Fark, where the headline often don't accurately reflect the content of the article. So commenting without at least glancing at the article can lead to you looking like an idiot.

I don't have much to add here, other than how annoying some people with "service dogs" are

A week or so ago, I saw a big fat fark on a motorized scooter in our local grocery store with her "service dog" following her around sniffing all of the things on the lower shelves. She wasn't even holding onto the leash.

I wanted to yell at her, but she struck me as the type that would have left him in the car in the blistering heat if she weren't allowed to bring him in.

Nevertheless, probably half the comments (at least) in any given thread are from people who haven't read the article.

/and 78% of statistics are made up on the spot

This isn't uncommon at all.  A lot of paragliders and hanggliders fly with their dog.   My friend used to fly with his little pitbull untill it got to fat and heavy.
 
2013-07-16 12:10:39 PM  
You guys laugh but before this guy got his service dog you couldn't leave him in the house alone or he would completely wreck everything. Chewing the drywall, ripping up blankets, pillows, clothes, sheets etc. continous barking. So go ahead and laugh but until you've seen the damage a middle aged man with seperation anxiety can do your laughter rings hollow.

Heelers are the best damned dog ever!
 
2013-07-16 02:19:00 PM  
The dog is probably terrified but it's training makes it go with him. The farker is torturing his service animal.
 
2013-07-16 08:59:53 PM  
I really try to be open minded about these psychiatric "service dogs" but the dog itself is showing signs of having separation anxiety which is being used as a crutch for this man's separation anxiety.  Is this really a good thing?
