Ther­apy dog ac­com­pa­nies fam­ily on plane

Changjiang Weekly - - SOCIETY - By Zhang Quanlu

A fam­ily and a ther­apy dog, Ol­lie, flew from Bangkok to Wuhan on flight CZ3030 on May 25. The ami­able, well-be­haved dog did not bark once dur­ing the three-hour jour­ney.

The fam­ily, con­sist­ing of two adults and three chil­dren un­der the age of four, trans­ferred in Wuhan for a flight bound for Los Angeles. Ol­lie, lay qui­etly at the feet of the fam­ily mem­bers through­out the trip. Pas­sen­gers in the back rows were un­aware of the dog's pres­ence un­til they ex­ited the plane.

Ac­cord­ing to China South­ern Air­lines, ther­apy dogs with proper cer­ti­fi­ca­tion are per­mit­ted to board planes with their own­ers. And their ride is free.

Ol­lie won over the hearts of the flight crew. It will­ingly posed for pho­tos with the flight at­ten­dants. His spirit lifted the spir­its of the staff mem­bers who had been work­ing all night long.
