    Default Upset

    Booked my flight yesterday to pick up Finn & train for a few days in TX. Found a super fare & just had to call back w/ kennel dimensions to book Finn on the return. Airline agent asks me to hold & says that there is an embargo on flying dogs out of TX beginning June. I went from being soooooooo pumped -not just because of having him come home, but from being excited about the trip down to train & transition him back.

    I just had to whine.

    Wah Wah Wah

    Back to the Drawing Board Regards-

    What is the reason for the embargo? I haven't heard anything about it.

    Northwest Airlines no longer flies dogs out of TX in the summer due to heat.

    I was going to go on Continental originally-that's how he got down there & also the airline I flew on in Feb to go down & train, but they no longer fly dogs into any airports near me because they use express jets into those airports.

    Is there any other airline that ships out of your airport?

    I'm going to start looking-although as it is dogs aren't shipped into VT & I fly him in & out of NH. But, if the embargo originates in TX it won't matter.

    You can keep looking but I can tell you from experience it is near impossible to get a dog shipped to or from Texas during the summer. I tried last summer and could not find a flight, period.

    I will admit right off the bat, I don't know a thing about Texas but would it be an impossibility to fly in and out of a neighboring state and drive to where Finn is??

    Just a thought regards,

    Thanks-I'll stop wasting bandwidth after this , but I was just excited about the whole prospect & didn't realize I'd run into a roadblock. Driving is a possibility, but this was going to be a very quick trip as it was w/ training time being at a premium.

    Options now are bringing him home earlier than planned or letting him go to Montana & i'm dying of separation anxiety as it is!

    Ok-I'm done whining now, but I just had to vent to folks who "get it".
