    I can't stand people who travel with their pets like this. Especially those that bring them into stores, restaurants and closed places like airplane cabins.

    The restaurant thing usually gets to me, but in Europe it's not that uncommon to see Fido while dinning.

    True enough when I lived there 10 years ago. We joked that it appeared they treated their dogs better than their children.

    I once saw a dog fight in the middle of a Michelin three-star restaurant in France, in Vezeley. The place was very dog friendly, with Perrier offered in silver water bowls, but this was ridiculous. Fortunately the waiter who separated them wasn't bitten, nor was I. (My table was about ten feet away, yikes!)

    Pretty much par for the course. In France and Italy in particular, dogs are welcome almost anywhere that people are. As long as they are friendly, I don't mind. There are a (very very) few, however, that would have been nice to send to a particular restaurant near Hanoi.

    In Germany too. What usually bugs me is when people hold their little ratlike dogs in their laps while dining and feed the dog, either using their silverware or by letting it holding the dog and encouraging it to lick their plate. I've once saw someone put the dog on the table with its little muddy paws on the white Irish linen; I hope they were charged extra for that stunt.

    Our family dog is an eight-pound Maltese and I can't imagine taking her on a plane. She thinks she's a human and would not be very happy being in a carrier for long... I couldn't willingly subject my fellow pax to what might be incessant barking.

    20 flights in one year might be a large number for B6. However it is not a major number on the legacy carriers where there are people that fly from the northeast to Florida and back every weekend (especially during snowbird season).

    (I just wanted to let you guys know that I shot the photo of Moose. We shot it about three weeks ago at BOS. Moose isn't actually looking at the camera... he's looking at the owner's boyfriend who is standing behind me)

    My late German Shepherd may not have been the most traveled but in her 12+ years she managed to have a rather diverse journey.

    She started off in Texas, went up to Canada, back to Texas and finaly ended up in the middle east. She experienced temperatures between -50C and +50C. And funny enough, she prefered the heat over the cold.
