Mommy and I travel a lot by car, and I have a seat belt that I love. Now we have to fly again. The last time I flew, I was 15lbs. Now I'm a big girl (22lbs) and I HATE my carrier. I think I'm still small enough to fit in the cabin... I think. Any suggestions for Mommy?

i think the max weight to carry pets in cabin is 18 or 20 pounds so i think you're over that?

at least, last time i flew that's what i remember.

Some airlines have strict weight limits while others are more lax on weight as long as the dog can fit comfortably in a soft sided carrier that meets their size specs and the dog can turn around in the carrier when it is zipped closed.

While some of the carriers on the market may be 11=12" tall and will scrunch down, the fact is that the under-seat area is generally 9" or less.

That means, ultimately, can you comfortably fit into a carrier that is approximately 17" long, 11" wide, and 9" tall? Since you don't have any full body pics, I can't tell how "leggy" you are.
