Reverend, Thanks for your questions.
I think trying to get therapy and service animals declassified is rather like trying to get wheelchair access ramps taken out. It’s mean spirited and represents negative action. There are hardly any stories of service or therapy animals actually bothering people, but there are thousands of stories of people being enabled by therapy and service animals.
As for the UK- bless ‘em and God save the Queen- the UK has finally allowed dogs and cats (and some others) to enter the Kingdom, but they need a chip and some medical documentation in the form of a very, very clean bill of health and freedom from tick-born illness. Quarantine is over with, if you approach the border with all your papers. And mainland Europe… oh it’s gloriously sensible. Pets travel freely. The Italians say you need a chip, and Raja got a chip to go to Italy, but nobody wanted to see his documents or discuss the chip, although the customs lady did want to kiss him. That’s Amore!
