DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) – A military veteran and his service dog attended the Stars game at the American Airlines Center on Wednesday night.

Nevada Grassie, and his service dog, Six, were on hand to watch their first Stars game.

“Six is my service dog. She does protection work and she just accompanies me in all my adventures and helps me out with everything I’m in need of,” Grassie said in an interview with Sportsnet Canada.

Grassie also went on to say that Six is very good with crowds and everyone has been welcoming to the canine being at the game. You can immediately get that impression if you watch the interview as Six just sits there quietly the entire time.

Unfortunately, the Stars fell in overtime to the Montreal Canadians 4-3, but it looks like they still had a great time.

    That’s awesome! The general public needs to understand and educate themselves regarding Working Service Dogs. Service Dogs are working animals and it’s unacceptable to approach the animal without the handlers permission, no matter how cute the dog is.

    A high school friend has a working service dog and educates all her FaceBook friends daily, with the do’s and don’ts of Working Service Animals and the daily situations she encounters with the general public. Uber drivers are the worst! She also educates us about the general public that thinks it’s acceptable to approach a service animal. Again, only approach the animal after speaking with the handler.

    When you see a working service animal, please read the notices/patches that are on the animals vest. Also, please don’t antagonize the handler or the service animal with rude, inappropriate comments.
