Comedian Drew Lynch thinks his service dog, Stella, is amazing.Which is why he recently put together this short video showing all the ways she helps him throughout the day.

The help provided by service dogs like Stella — not to mention the friendship — is immeasurable.The thousands of service dogs working in the U.S. do a lot more than more than you might think. When we see service dogs out in public, casually guiding their human through public spaces, we don’t always stop to consider just how smart these dogs really are or appreciate that they are trained to do so much more than meets the eye. Image by TheDrewLynch/Twitter, used with permission. These dogs are trained for much more than helping people with vision or hearing impairments.They can work with people who use powered or manual wheelchairs, have various types of autism, or are prone to seizures. They can also alert people to other complications, like low blood sugar. According to the National Service Animal Registry, you can qualify for a service dog if you have any condition that limits your daily physical activity. Although Drew didn’t specify why he has a service dog, he did joke on “America’s Got Talent” that the state of California gave him one because of his stutter. Check out Lynch’s adorable video showcasing Stella’s many talents and busy life:
Just a few of our favorite quotes from the legendary coach.
On June 12, 2016, a man walked into an Orlando nightclub, opened fire, and killed 49 people. Many questions from that night remain. Namely: Why? Why them? Why that night? The question of “who,” however — that’s something we know. We know who the shooter was, and we know who the victims are. A new video hopes to shine a light on stories of the victims of the Pulse nightclub massacre, enlisting the help of 49 celebrities, including Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato, Laverne Cox, Chris Pine, and others. Produced by the Human Rights Campaign and Ryan Murphy (“Glee,” “American Horror Story”), the 18-minute film aims to keep the memories alive of those lost and ensure they did not die in vain. “For too long, a toxic combination of anti-LGBTQ hate and easy access to guns has put LGBTQ people at disproportionate risk of violence and murder,” reads the video’s description. “It’s on all of us to keep their memories alive, and to ensure part of their legacy becomes meaningful action to end hate violence.” Lady Gaga, Connie Britton, and Kerry Washington.
