    Turned the Springer Spaniel in to an Irish Setter.

    For how much UA charges for PetSafe, stuff like this is totally inexcusable.

    That was the problem. They saw SpriNger spaNiel and naturally thought SNN instead of PHX.

    Kind of ironic when one of the pre-flight self-promotion videos by Jeff $misek Productions is about shipping cargo with a specific emphasis on taking care of dogs and cats when they fly

    That is why I would never ever ever ship my dog on a plane. I would drive or not go. No way I trust a precious family member to the statistically unsafe and downright unpleasant cargo shipping method that airlines use.

    He did take care of him giving the dog many more FF miles than he would have just going to PHX! :D
