I read (on Shorty's website) that Geisha was his first "Service Dog," and that because she has gotten older, Hercules was trained to be his next "Service Dog." According to something else I read, both Geisha and Hercules are "registered with the ADA as Service Dog and Service Dog in Training, respectively."
Apparently he got Geisha after he was released from prison and then had her trained as a SD after a back injury. I wonder why he doesn't take Hercules with him since he is, apparently, his newest SD.
You're right. He has his costumed employees walk Geisha around (wearing an SD vest and costume as well.)
The episode with "That is a SD, right?" I think was the same episode as the Crawfish Festival one ("costumed workers...")
They are out to eat at a restaurant, and the server asks, "that is an SD, right?" The camera pans over to Geisha (Hercules? they look alike,) and Shorty says, "right" and smirks. Then the server says, "Because we normally don't allow pets." When the server leaves, Shorty and his sister make a face, and the sister mocks the server, " ' because we normally don't allow pets
.' " What a great way to show respect.
