In recent years, a spate of news stories about people flying with unusual support animals has made the topic seem like a problem. I would like to posit a solution: flights that are nothing but support animals, people who need them, and people who enjoy them.

American Airlines, however, is not responding to that helpful suggestion and instead is moving to restrict the number of animals that get a free ride in exchange for offering their support. But according to the Dallas Morning News, tiny little horses are still situationally fine:

Passengers who require service animals will now be able to bring up to three on board providing the animal is a dog, cat or –- in some circumstances -– a miniature horse.

So thank Francis of Assisi for that mini horse loophole. Was your week as adorable as a shrunken stallion with a little suitcase all ready to board an airplane?

Hi Jezzies, a few of you will remember that I was homeless and then finally got rehoused by the council into a flat last year. The block the flat is in is awful and full of drug dealers and that I am the only female in the block. I posted last year that my doctor had written to the council to say that I needed to be moved because where I was living was making my mental health worse not better. I was put on a let select scheme where I can bid on properties, I thought I was in for a long wait as I was 72nd on the list but I’ve worked my way up to 48th. Imagine my surprise that I put a bid in last week and I was successful. I will be moving to a one bedroom house in the next month, it has a garden for Ollie. I’m not used to things going right after the past few years and I feel anxious about moving but I’m also excited. I just can’t believe it’s real but I got a 1 bedroom house Jezzies :). It’s the one with the white front door. I feel so blessed.
