    Best way is for the future owners to book a flight to the nearest airport and bring the pup back as a carry on. Most all airlines allow one or two pups in the cabin. Check the internet and then follow up with a telephone call to the airline. It's really is easy.

    Here is a website with most of the airlines websites http://www.petswelcome.com/milkbone/frameairtrav.html

    I agree the best way would be for the new owners to come and take the pup on as carry on in a soft crate http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...=942&catid=497

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Absolutely agree with having pup in cabin, but if not possible I highly recommend Continental. They do a wonderful job & are so friendly. 2 thumbs up for that airline for the thought that went in to their pet shipping policies.

    BTW-haven't seen you post in a while. Hope all is well!

    I just shipped a pup from Philadelphia to Salt Lake City on Delta with no problem at all. The cost with insurance was under $180. I don't know which end of PA you are from but if you're from the area I can PM you details.

    I shipped a puppy last May via Continental and she made it there just fine. I also just shipped a dog (in January) on Continental to New Jersey and the dog made it there without a problem. I highly recommend Continental - as said before "two thumbs up". Their website has some great info on shipping live animals.

    Default Thanks

    To every one that is trying to help... Thank You. When they asked me to ship it, I though ok I will just make a little road trip. They said great, I live in TEXAS. Ok I just put my foot in my mouth. I live in PA and I am not going to make that a road trip. (sorry)

    Terry-

    What month do you need to ship the pup & what part of Texas? I have to go back to get Finny & if timing works the pup could fly down with me.
