Every dog owner has had a momentary flash of jealousy toward service dogs. Why does he get to bring his dog inside the restaurant, they think, while my precious baby has to wait in the car, just because he is freaking blind? Such is their love for their pooches that some even create false service dog badges and jackets for their darlings – temptingly easy to do, especially since dogs in outfits are always adorable. Why has Jason Schwartzman’s dog Arrow joined the service dog ranks?

“Grand Budapest Hotel” star Schwartzman was recently in Austin for SXSW, with French bulldog Arrow in tow. Master and pup were spotted in the Austin airport preparing to board a flight, and Arrow was wearing a service dog badge, according to Page Six.

So what service is Arrow providing to Schwartzman? Hard to say. Service dogs are used for a variety of conditions, not all of which are visible to the naked eye. However, there are numerous photos of Schwartzman and Arrow out and about together, with no sign of a service badge in sight. Maybe Arrow’s a recent grad from his training – or maybe Schwartzman just didn’t want to relegate his furry friend to a crate.
