In this photo taken Feb. 11, 2015, Rep. Jeff Denham, R-Calif. poses with Lily, his 15-pound French bulldog in his office on Capitol Hill in Washington. It all began with Lily, a 15-pound snowball of a French bulldog with dark mahogany eyes, a wrinkly nose and a penchant for jumping on furniture and laps so that she can get closer to her many human visitors. She and her owner, Rep. Jeff Denham of California, take the occasional coast-to-coast plane ride together. But when he tried to take her on Amtrak a couple years back, he learned that only service dogs were allowed aboard. It's a policy he's been trying to change ever since, and he appears to be gaining momentum.  (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
