Warning for Pet Owners: short-snouted dogs most likely to die on planes

Bulldogs, pugs, similar breeds made up about half of deaths in past 5 years

That cinches it! I was never comfortable with the idea of putting dogs in the cargo bay of a plane. When I read this article I immediately thought of my Pug Millie. Oh the horror!

Anyone that has read any of my stuff over the last three years knows that; one, I have a Pug named Millie, and two, I hate traveling by plane. Here’s one column to give you an idea of how I feel about planes: “Traveling by airplane, or fear and loathing in the not so ‘friendly’ skies”
