Allergies since 1990 CAN be classified as a disability, too, which is where the hitcher comes in sometimes for bosses/service dog owners. It would become violating one ADA over another. Tricky situation. I have only ever met people would extreme allergies (to asthma attacks etc) to cats though, and other substances-never dogs.

If potential issues with allergies is the objection, why, you happen to have a poodle -- the closest thing to a "hypoallergenic" dog!

I have to laugh, because before I was moved into the building, I had a portable outside.. When I did a Saturday clinic, I had huge turn out, because I would bring Remington.. The kids loved him, and he loved to see them... They said that they always hated to leave because it hurt his feelings... THey would get massive amounts of work done.. Grades were higher and all that great stuff. Remington would stand and look out the window and watch them leave... It was too funny.
This last part warms my heart!

Wow, I am very surprised by the condition of that other service dog. I have never seen a service dog that wasn't immaculately cared for and clean. It's odd that in the same district, you'd be able to bring Remington before, but now it's likely to be a problem (Or have they already told you you can't bring him?). You'd think they would know how well Remi is taken care of and how well behaved he is. You have already established a track record with him there.

The other lady who had the service dog was a little odd. I don't know how to say it correctly, but she did not take great care of her personal needs either... Ok, being blunt she was smelly too.... :( I heard, but am not positive that her dog helped her with some autism issues. I know that they are used for that, but I am not sure how her dog was used. He was an otter hound. Anyway, I really did feel sorry for her.

Yes, my boss outright said that it was not okay to have Remington in the classroom, he gave all kinds of reasons.... Since I had not been diagnosed diabetic at that time, I didn't really push it, as the drive to work is less than 5 min and once I get here I am always around some one... I always thought if something happened I would be ok, because someone would be here... But up until last year when I worked on Saturday doing a clinic to help kids who were struggling Remington ALWAYS came, as he was my safe guard. You know what I mean? On top of that, the kids love him. I had a student last year who was probably about a second grade level in reading, and we made a deal that she would pick book out and read to Remington... She loved it and he did too... I have this wonderful picture in my scrap book of her sitting on the floor and Remington sitting next to her with a heart shaped toy in his mouth saying be mine... (It was the weekend before Valentine Day). There is so much positive research for having dogs in the classroom. And to be honest, I think Remington would be amazing at it. While he can be a little devil sometimes... He has a good heart and seems to love everyone.

Good boy Remy!

I think you are wise to consider whether bringing him to work is really the battle you want to fight. Totally not fair, and totally not right, but supervisors can come up with inventive ways to get rid of staff they consider troublemakers. You don't want to find yourself laid off because the school discovers a pressing need to hire bilingual Korean reading instructors or something.

You are so right! I did talk to my boss for a brief moment, and when I told her I was having issues with my BG it was like she sudenly thought I wouldn't be able to do my job... I have until Spring Break to make them see that they need me in the lab.... Well at least I hope they do....

Scarey! Unfortunately it seems like employers only look at the bottom line nowadays! So different from 30 years ago when your place of employment was your 'second family' and actually, actively, cared for their employees! Take care of yourself!

p.s. I was a single Mom raising my son without the help of my X, so I totally 'get it!'
