The Good News: Bride Takes Photos With Her Service Dog [PHOTOS]
"This bond is so important because it helps us rely on each other every day."
Valerie Parrott and her service dog Bella have taken over the internet, and the pictures are just adorable: Valerie made Bella part of her wedding ceremony on January 9th in South Dakota.
Bella alerts her to panic attacks, anxiety and migraines. "She will do things like lick my hands or lean and put her weight on me to get me to focus on her instead of my surroundings," the bride explained to The Huffington Post. "Basically it helps me to take a moment away from whatever is causing the anxiety and keeps me from having a panic attack."
In fact, at the moment this photo was taken, Bella was helping her through a moment of anxiety. "This bond is so important because it helps us rely on each other every day," she told HuffPost. "It makes it so I can literally put my life in her paws every day and know that we can make it through anything."
