They said Disney World is one of the happiest places on earth, and for this adorable service dog, she did had the happiest time of her life after meeting her favorite Disney character.
Nala has been a service dog for two years now to her mom and handler Megan Leigh, who has autism. Nala and Megan’s favorite place to go to together is Disney, and Nala loves to meet all the Disney characters, especially her favorite Donald Duck!
“Nala and I have been to Disney more days than I can count,” Megan told The Dodo in an interview. “She has stepped foot (or paw) into a Disney park at least 50 separate times. The moment Nala walked up to meet Donald, crowds surrounded and watched in awe.”
In a video posted by Megan, it showed how much Donald and Nala pretty smitten with each other. “Nala did not want to leave Donald at all! She loves him a lot!” said Megan as the two could be seen in the video snuggling and giving each other plenty of kisses.
Nala is a regular at the park as a medical response service dog, too.
As Nala becomes Instagram famous, she is known as Disney’s Favorite Dog, a lot of people surely loves to pet her, but Megan wanted to remind everyone that there are actually some guidelines when approaching service dogs.
“Don’t [pet] service dogs without asking. I have no problem telling people they can’t touch Nala when I didn’t give permission. I do not tolerate unsolicited pets where people come up and start fluffling her head or grab her tail. Not ok,” Megan wrote in an Instagram post.
