Icy as my Service Dog and Training

Thanks! Icy and I are so happy your all getting something out of our journey together.

I'm still recovering from my trip to the US and I can't add much to this right now. Icy was very upset this time with me gone. I think having Lone Star last time kept them both sane. I don't think I will be travelling without him again. It's not fair on either of us.

I will keep trying to work out a way to bring him on a plane. UK bureaucrats are tough to get around. Because I trained Icy myself I am finding real difficulty in getting him "certified" for any trip. Trains, buses and cars are fine. No test is available for independently trained dogs and he's been on two lists for charity assessment (the only way to get him tested) for 3 years now. We don't have full coverage under the Disability Act due to this problem.

I hate to complain but that's the sum of our problems right now. But as far as I'm concerned he would pass the tests I have read online so he is a full Service Dog to me.
