|Samson....Only disabled people with a service dog or ESA can fly with a dog that large in cabin. To fly a pet in cabin, they have to be small enough to be in a crate under the seat in front of the passenger.
I have two seniors...Hershey will be 10 in right at a month and is 60 lbs. Harley will be 8 in Aug and is 115 lbs. I find myself thinking too much about what could come and how much time I have left. Hershey was my first dog and is my heart. Harley is my service dog and literally constant companion who is at my side 24/7. I can't imagine a life that they are not in, and the thought petrifies me. I have joked that mine are immortal b/c I can't handle it any other way. I have found myself being more patient of their little quarks knowing that the day will eventually come when I would give anything to have Harley's head putting pressure on the middle of my back (which is really uncomfortable) or have Hershey having selective hearing issues when she doesn't want to listen to me.
Thankfully, both are very healthy and solid. Other than having hypothyroidism, they are great. For that they are meds, and it shouldn't affect their quality of life or lifespan as long as the dosage is right.
I try really hard just to enjoy them, love them, and spend time with them. Next Saturday, we are leaving for our annual week long family trip to the mountains where if its not dog friendly, we don't do it.
