Troubled after reading a study that found that some 5,000 pets are injured in air transit every year, Nannette Bisher and her Corgi, Harry, decided to give Pet Airways a whirl yesterday:

“Every time I looked at Harry, I imagined this scene: Noisy, crowded O’Hare airport. Harry in a crate being carted off to cargo by a stranger. He is looking at me through the crate door. He’s scared. I’m a wreck. I just couldn’t do it.”

Nannette documents her (and Harry’s) journey in a blow-by-blow blog post on the SF Appeal’s website. So if you’ve ever considered putting your precious pup on Pet Airways, here’s your chance to see what it’s really like.

But if you’ve already given the service a try, do tell us what it was like in the comments!
