Just heard about this . . .

A 12 year old Manchester terrier terrorized passengers on a flight from Newark, N.J. to Phoenix after it escaped from its carrier under her 89 year old owner’s seat.  Yapping wildly, the terrier bit a passenger and a flight attendant before the pilot made an emergency landing in Pittsburgh.

Okay, I’m not allowed to carry a butter knife onto the plane.  I have to turn my Kindle reading device off before take-off.  If I look cross-eyed at a flight attendant I’m in jeopardy of being removed from the flight.  BUT, I can pack a psychotic dog under my seat?

I like dogs . . . in fact, I love them.  However, I would have been none too happy to have my flight rerouted to Pittsburgh!

What’s next?  Doggie obedience screening?
