This week’s photo was sent to me by reader Kristin, who travels all over the U.S. with Tater, her Yorkie. Here he is, in what looks like a medium Sherpa carrier, on their recent trip to Portland, OR.
And the bullet dodged? Kristin mentioned how miffed she was that American now charges $175, and requires a health certificate, for in-cabin dogs. Astonished, I checked the web site, and it turns out that the agent she spoke to got his or her wires crossed, and booked Tater as a cargo dog, not an in-cabin dog (never fear, in-cabin dogs needn’t have a health certificate on American, and the in-cabin fee remains $125)(which is still crazily expensive, I agree). Kristin sorted the situation out, but it’s a good reminder that agents, especially at this frenzied time of year, can get it wrong….
I’d love to see how you and your pup spent your time together this week — please post your photos on Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page so we can all see them!
