Now I'm not talking about a grizzly fellow, I'm talking about a bonafide dog. I know what you're thinking: "Whaaat, don't dogs get shipped in cargo in scary-looking prison cages like the ones I've seen in the movies?" Not always. And having a dog above board can actually really improve the journey.
You might think a dog would be a nightmare on an airplane, howling through the entire flight, but, as these cute pics will show, some dogs can actually improve the long haul experience.
Dogs and planes go way back.
I mean, in reality, it does seem a little silly...
via: ShutterstockDogs aren't human, right? Surely, when we go to stay with family and friends out of state, we should just get someone to watch them? Taking your dog with you on vacation seems kind of odd...
This is what I thought happened when you took a dog on a plane...
As it turns out, you can keep your doggo with you at all times.
But a dog on a flight would be a nuisance, right?Stealing all those in-flight peanuts right out of my hand! Bursting my neck cushion with its rabid teeth... oh and the drooling. No thank you.
There's only one dog I want to see on my flight...
Can we say #TBT, @elainabusch?! Lol. Snoop Dogg on our plane leaving LAX! http://t.co/cyhmVieRrr— Trey Wheeler (@Trey Wheeler)1429238510.0
Dogs called Snoop Dogg don't count!
the lady next to us on the plane brought her pup ☺️ his name is snoop dogg https://t.co/5Rmpl81tUp— c (@c)1461691189.0
Granted, if your dog is well trained...Taking them with you on your travels could mean an extra pair of hands - or should I say "paws"... (dad joke).
Dogs need exercise.A big dog needs walking loads of times a day. What's it going to do on a long haul flight? Do laps around the cabin? Is there a doggy treadmill onboard?
You cannot open the window on a plane.It just can't be done, you'll get sucked out of the plane and die. But dogs love putting their heads out of the window, right?
Where do the dogs pee?I mean, that's what everyone's thinking, right? Do they do a sneaky tinkle under a snoring passenger's seat? Do they do it in a water bottle? This remains a mystery to me.
A well-behaved dog can make the perfect travel companion.

via: The DodoPassengers on the Ibiza bound flight were initially startled when they noticed Huxley.
Huxley abandoned his mom to sit in front.
via: The DodoAccording to Huxley's mom, Ursula Daphne Aitchison, "He was sat in the seat next to me but got in a mood which he often does when I don’t pay him enough attention." Speaking to The Dodo, she explained that her dog quickly changed his tune...
“He quickly changed his tune when he heard me eating my crisps."
via: The DodoDogs do love chips, it's a scientific fact. My dog's favorite chips are cheese and onion, which, coincidently, is my favorite too.
Huxley found it difficult to get hold of the savory snack...
via: The DodoMuch to the amusement of the passengers, Huxley struggled to squeeze through the gap between the seats to get hold of mom's crisps.
Huxley's funny faces amused everyone around.
via: The DodoAitchison took to Facebook to share the funny snaps and they quickly went viral.
Look at that face!
via: The DodoI wouldn't be surprised if he wasn't signing a sponsorship deal with Pan Air as we speak. He could be the new face of travel.
