    Crikey - do you own a Ferrari? LOL.

    Anyway, I am so glad to hear Plato made his move safely.

    Fantastic! I am so glad you posted. This has been niggling in the back of my mind.

    I may be wrong, but I thought that you could buy a plane ticket for a well-behaved dog...why not call them and ask? I mean, really, the absolute worst thing that can happen is them saying "no."

    Oh, a bit late, here, haha, but I could keep this post for reference.

    A final update: While I was preparing to put Plato on Pet Airways, I get a call saying that The New York Times wants to interview me over my experience moving/flying snub-nosed dogs. The article just came out: http://nyti.ms/rsZ5PD

    FYI, that's my and my pug on page 2. :)

    @Ivy: With dogs in the cabin, the issue has to do with height and weight restrictions, not behavior. And I did call a bunch of airlines. Once you mention the height and weight, they just say no.

    @MrsGreene: I'm loving it here. Seattle is a wonderful and dog-friendly city. I can take Plato on the bus without having to put him in a kennel, and people come over to pet him. There's also milder climates and so much you can do outdoors. I also have a bigger place now. I think Plato is loving it here!

    I am so glad it all worked out :-)

    just a sidenote - the 1-800-*airline* folks rarely know the whole scoop.
    After my wonderful trip with the DappleDuo, I called 1-800-southwest and was told my dogs would not ever be allowed boarding and I could not take and store their luggage carrier in the overhead bins - all of which I *had* done the week before LOL

    I hope to take Molly home with me in November. We will be traveling from Kyrgyzstan to the states. How did your guys do on the plane? Any tips?

    Thank you,
    Sarah & Molly

    Topaz, depending on the precise date of your intended travel, you might already be too late to have the necessary vaccinations for your dog to travel (at least to the USA)...I am not trying to assume that you have not already researched and prepared your dog for travel, so please don't be offended, I just want to make sure that people are aware of import procedures before attempting to board an animal onto a plane. The US requires a vaccination of rabies at least 30 days before travel, and there are various health certificates that may be required by the airlines, etc. Please look at the USDA and CDC websites, and call the airline and the destination airport before doing anything else!
