    I think the best support critter would be a baby goat. There's nothing cuter and more disarming than a baby goat. Stressful day at work? Pet the goat. Had an argument with a spouse or child? Feed the goat and know you satisfied a need, met expectations, and made someone happy. Need a hug? Receive a big lick on the cheek from a thankful, grateful [well fed] goat.

    And I suppose that their droppings tend to come in the form of pellets that are easily swept off the seats using a dustpan & brush?

    Unlike pigs...... :eek:

    It's rather easy here in the US for Veterans to get a "support" animal. Being retired military I am in no way downplaying the role PTSD has in the life of many that have come back from the middle east, I've witnessed a lot of it myself, but I do think it's being abused.

    Maybe not when you consider their urine. Exceptionally pungent, maybe only equaled by felines. It all balances out - I still say baby goats win.

    Service dogs are common here for retired members with PTSD. Another facet is OSI (operational Stress injuries). I have friends who suffer from it and fully understand the need for a support animal of some kind.

    Not just veterans, Lonn. We see all manner of people with all manner of "support" critters these days. And who said it's ok to put your "support" animal IN the shopping cart in a supermarket? The next person is going to put their FOOD in that same cart. It looks like most of these people have never been closer to the military than watching a war movie on TV.

    Don't get me wrong- I love animals. People- them I'm less fond of.

    Because a dog is so . . . yesterday.

    And more importantly, unhip.

    Why would the kind of animal matter? Wouldn’t it be personal preference? This is an emotional support animal not a trained service animal.

    There are the Service animals owned by a single owner who visit folks in need who need the animal comfort time.

    There is also the Service animals that belong to the person who has an OSI/PTSD that is a constant companion to ground and supply emtional support.

    My wife and son are allergic to animal dander and I get annoyed when I see people putting their "support animals" into shopping carts and such. And yeah, it's usually somebody that I can say with pretty good certainty isn't suffering PTST from being in the military.

    My daughter in law is looking into the possibility of getting an epilepsy support dog at the moment.

    Can a St Bernard carry a Guinness barrel? :sneaky:

    What? o_O

    I only asked. :whistling:
