It wasn't all bad
Watch this excited service dog meet his hero, Pluto, at Disney World
It's not just kids who love meeting the characters at Disney World.
Atlas, a golden retriever service dog, met his favorite fellow canine last Friday during a trip to Epcot Center. Atlas belongs to Julian Gavino, a 22-year-old college student from Sarasota who has a rare tissue disorder called Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. Gavino has an annual pass for Disney World, and usually goes once a week with Atlas. "I love to see him have fun," Gavino told Inside Edition. "Some days, he works long hours, so it's important for him to get to do this kind of stuff."
Atlas has a stuffed Pluto that he adores and plays with all the time, and when Gavino saw that Pluto was doing a meet-and-greet, he got in line. When it was their turn, Atlas slowly approached Pluto, but his hesitation quickly disappeared and the thrilled dog was all over his idol, sniffing him while wagging his tail. "Atlas was more than excited to meet his best pal look-alike," Gavino wrote on Facebook. Catherine Garcia
