    paul and i have the opportunity to "housesit and pet sit and run a friends business" for a month on aruba.

    realistically we probably cannot do it due to our house being for sale in maine.
    but, we ArE considering it.

    we have an 18 lb cockapoo and really really are nervous about putting her in the soft sided carrier and stuffing her under the seat in front of us.

    we'd be flying from miami.

    i know of the vet certificates required.

    but realistically how well can i expect "my baby" to do under the seat for 3 hrs ?
    if i bought her an orange vest and pretend she was my service dog, could she sit in my lap ;-)

    my dog is treated like the queen.
    and i am nervous considering this venture.
    but if we DO IT we WILL bring the dog

    for those of you that have transported dogs under seats...please, paul and i need reassurance.

    I know a lot of people who bring their dogs to the island. Have
    never heard of a problem.

    Our dog Alice is great on the plane. All our cats are too.
    I think the engine noise comforts them.

    I saw the warning sign on your front gate and thought that was your house.

    You will need paperwork for her to be considered a service dog. Unless you get her designated as an "emotional support animal". You just have to convince a doctor that she is needed to keep you calm on a flight. Because of the ADA implications, airlines are very liberal in their ES animal policies. It's fast becoming one of the most abused services in the industry.

    It would make for a backup plan if she won't stay under the seat. We've also found that a bendryl often works to keep our pups mildly sedated when needed. I'm sure you vet would be able to suggest something size/age appropriate for your pup.

    Speaking of dogs, there is an adorable litter or 6 or so up at Alto Vista Chapel. They look to be about 3-4 months old and are a little skittish. If you know any dog rescue people down there that can catch them let me know, we'll take one if it will help. When we left the hotel, all of our leftovers and enough water to fill the bowls went up to the chapel.
