Meet Rex. He’s your average, everyday golden retriever lab mix who loves meeting people, going on walks, fetching—you know, all the typical dog stuff. But, like a superhero in his costume, everything changes once Rex is wearing his special vest. You see, Rex is a service dog. He specializes in diabetic alert, epilepsy alert, and mobility assistance. And while those may not exactly be superpowers, they’re pretty darn close. So when we needed help showing off our new media room decor collection—including tons of new comic book art—we knew just the dog to turn to.
The morning of the shoot, Rex arrived with his owner, Andrew, at our studio in Nashville, and the two didn’t waste any time.
After just a few minutes, Rex was more than comfortable on our living room set.
Our photographers for the shoot, Kelli and Alicia, were excited to be working with a dog as composed and capable as Rex. Like all service dogs, Rex took his commands seriously and performed flawlessly every single time.
Unless he had to scratch, of course. But we could hardly blame him for that. Those vests can be so itchy!
No worries; there were treats. LOTS of them, actually.
All that posing and looking adorable is serious work. Rex decided it was time to relax for a minute while the photographers looked over a few shots.
After a hard morning’s work, Rex received praise from Andrew for being such a good model and a great dog. Minutes later, the vest would be back on, and it would be back to business as usual for this super service pup.
Thank you, Rex, for taking time out of your busy schedule to help us with our media room shoot! And thank you to Rex’s owner, Andrew, for allowing us to borrow him for a little while and take some great photos. We knew we needed someone super to help us with this collection, and Rex is about as super as it gets.
