There was a split second there where his like, “wait, what? bro what are you doing?” 
On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human. 

Therapy animals save lives.

These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury. 
Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!

I was reading an article of a service dog helping a person with schizophrenia. she stated that when she was seeing or hearing things and notices the dog is not reacting in any way, then she is able to ground herself, realizing what she was experiencing was not real and could work through it easier and is more able to ignore the delusions. And she pointed out she feels more comfortable with a service dog as well because well, dogs don’t judge and get angry for things like this

I teared up about this whole post to be honest.

i’ll never not reblog this post. it is so important.

I cried a little about this

Also, I always love ideas and feedback so have at it!

PAPER SYMBOLIZES WORDS WHICH SYMBOLIZES BRAINS

AND ROCK SYMBOLIZES BRAWN.

BRAINS OVER BRAWN.

MIND OVER MATTER.

PAPER OVER ROCK.

You clever little ****.

Are the lesbians also literary critics?

Are you ready to blast off into reading this summer with Fizz,Boom,Read?!

Sign ups are happening now!

Had to share this with my tumblarian friends from my work blog! One of our best banners I must say. :) 

Also, the big beaker is a collaborative tracker. For every book they read they get to add a “bubble” sticker.

Creative Drama with Pat and Alan Hawkridge was a wonderful success on Tuesday! 18 8-12 year olds explored their dramatic flair with quite a few giggles.

Had the privilege of working with an amazing team to bring drama to the library! Two of my favorite things together, the library and the theater!

Funny faces at the library? How can we not?

Table activity in the children’s room last week! The kids got a kick out of making some rather humorous faces. 

lplkidskorner:

What’s summer without crafts? Check out these fun sock puppets and I think I spot at least one mad scientist in there!

Look at what the library kids got into last week! I’m loving all of the silly and science-y things they’re doing this year!

lplkidskorner:

Meet our Cookieologist and their special creations!

One of my work programs last week. These kids had such a blast!`
