Dreams really do come true at Disney -- even for dogs!
 
Ace, a guide dog in training for Guide Dogs of America recently went to Disneyland as part of a training exercise.
 
While there, he met Pluto.  His reaction is simply sweet and going viral.

The video was posted on Facebook and has more than 13 million views.
 
According to his trainer, Sandy Steinblums, who commented on the video, said Ace started his training in January to be a guide for the blind.
 
In the video, she can be heard saying “stay” and “down,” which the pup eventually does, but not without an excited tail wag.
 
Some people have responded negatively to the video.
 
She responded:
 
"What you didn't see AFTER the 14-15 seconds video where he settled in a DOWN was his DOWN/STAY for a few minutes while Pluto tried to break his stay. This was a training outing and I was too far back to do a proper correction, but golly-be....he responded anyway. Yep! That is my boy and I am proud of him and love the Disney characters for being so kind and helpful!"
 
Ace still has six to nine more months of extensive training, which is plenty of time to correct his excitement.
