Wish our dog fit under an airplane seat

Buddy in the window

What’s up with the rule that only dogs that fit under an airplane seat can travel in coach with their human parents? While our sweet dog, Buddy, meets the weight criterion for most airlines, we learned he’s a little too tall to comfortably fit in a regulation size pet carrier. I sure wish he fit under the airplane seat and could accompany us on our travels.

The folks who rescued Buddy took the photo used in the feature image. They found Buddy roaming their neighborhood on Thanksgiving Day five years ago. After Buddy had spent Thanksgiving Day and night in their home, they surrendered him to a local shelter in hopes the shelter would find his family. When his family failed to claim him, we adopted this wonderful little doggy.

    That’s a great business opportunity. If one of the airlines had special seats with higher clearance for bigger pets, they’d probably get more passengers.

    1. I like your idea. We would be happy to pay extra for the ability to bring Buddy with us.
