Dog Escapes Designer Bag

On a flight from Boston to Florida, about a year ago, I saw definitely the weirdest thing I’ve seen happen on a plane. I wouldn’t say it was “hell” exactly, but it was a nuisance. A couple, near the back of the plane, had brought their little dog on the plane. Normal, no biggy. But, they both decided to sleep, leaving nobody watching the dog.

Well, the dog escaped its designer bag and ran down the plane towards the cockpit, where I was seated. Then, the little black dog turned around a full 360 degrees, looking up at the people watching movies, sleeping, reading, or listening to iPods. He looked like he was about to piss on the floor, and his tail was so far up his legs you wouldn’t believe.

Well, after three minutes of repeated intercom announcements, the owners both strode up, without saying sorry or “OMG” or anything, and picked up the dog. On the way back one of them said “Bad dog,” as if it was his fault.

I probably would have been cheeky enough to mutter, "Bad human!" at the owner. That is bizarre, though if they're from Florida… not at all surprising.

There are no bad dags, only bad dog owners.

Actually… I think the whole thing is kinda funny. If it were me I'd probably be on my knees in the isle trying to make friends with the little pup.
