Service Dog Goes Wild Over ‘Up’ Dog At Disney World
“I have just met you and I love you.”
Service dog Henry, on a recent trip to Disney World with his human, Jessica Paulsen, could barely contain his excitement when he found a larger than life Dug.
Henry gave nearby Russell a few sniffs, but it was obvious that Dug was the star of the show.
The 2-year-old Golden Retriever already has 111,000 followers on Instagram. Positioning himself between Dug and Russell for a fantastic photo op probably didn’t hurt his standings, either. Henry was perfectly posed as he grinned for Paulsen.
The resulting post had tens of thousands of reactions in a matter of days.
“Please note that Henry is a working dog but Disney days are long and character meets are a great reward for all of Henry’s hard work,” Paulsen captioned the photo.
It was Henry’s second visit to the “Happiest Place on Earth,” and probably a sign for Paulsen that she should start scheduling a third.
Paulsen relies on Henry for a condition called postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, which can make life difficult. She suffers from unexpected bouts of fainting and a rapid heart rate. Henry helps her stay calm. Meanwhile, those following Henry on Instagram can see how well they work together.
Along with the @kinghenryofnashville account, Paulsen also posts content to YouTube and her own website, HenryTheHelper.com.
