YES,  MY DOG BEHAVED. Didn't make a peep. I think the flight attendant didn't like dogs.

Maybe not. People should admire a well behaved dog.

was it a "therapy" horse or a "miniature horse used for guiding blind?"

ie service  horse.

Both. The therapy horse is a miniature horse.  Actually, it’s technically not a therapy horse but a service horse.

i knew they  used them for "guide animals" occasionally and did not realize they also used them for "therapy" hence  the question

The cat in my sig is actually modeled after a Persian cat i had, named George. I was a bit embarrassed posting him on a dog forum. Wasn't able to take my sig off before he got posted for some reason. 

Glad you like him.

We love cats here.  Sol has a bunch of them. And lots of dogs.

They can be used for therapy but not in the same way that dogs are. 

Can I invite anyone who wants to to my forum Feline Forum webtag cats?

yes I have had a cat as a service animal pre-2010, and cats as emotional assistance animals. Here is my current cat McKenna-a personal emotional assistance cat. Definitely services my mental health.
Oh and I love dogs too and have lurked at this forum before.
