    If there's already a thread for this, slap me and point me in the right direction. But I didn't see one, so here goes ;)

    Tango needs to make it from here to NC. It's a 21-hour-ish drive, so assistance would be awesome :p

    If anyone has flown a dog, by itself or with another person, reviews for airlines would be great too!


    ETA: Oh, duh. Route. Expected route for driving goes through southern MO, southwest KY, north/northeast TN, and NC. That can change depending on if there are people elsewhere that would be able to help.


    THANK YOU!!!

    Yes please! Or suggestions on airlines for flying Mr. Tango. I think that would be the least stressful for him.

    Oh yay you're taking him!!

    He's small enough to fit under the seat, right? So I think he'll count as "carry-on"? On Southwest at least, that's free.

    Right now we're planning on shipping him by himself.

    That said if it's cheaper to fly with him I'd be willing to do so, but I doubt that would be the case since that's a round-trip flight and he only needs a one-way flight ;)

    Sizzle did a blog post with all the info we need! Very helpful and informative. I'm looking at flying him later this week so I'll have him by the weekend and have Sunday off to acclimate him to the new place :D

    I'm beyond excited for you! You'd better shower us with LOTS of pictures when you get him!

    And like I said- chihuahuas are AWESOME. Everyone needs at least one! :D

    He won't be getting home until almost 1 am so you'll have to be patient until Saturday for pictures!

    Yup, Delta ^.^ I was pretty happy with how they handled him when I dropped him off. She did end up going Delta DASH to make sure he didn't have to sit somewhere overnight.
