Caesar: World Traveler

Picking up Caesar at the airport in Salt Lake. Look at that tail wag.

Caesar made the 1300 mile trek from St. Louis to Salt Lake City underneath the seat on a Southwest flight. Until last week, Southwest had a "No Pets" policy. Now that they're looking for additional sources of revenue, you can pay $75 for your pet to sit in your water-proof carrier underneath the seat in front you. The dog or cat has to be able to stand up and turn around in the carrier. Caesar is probably the upper limit of how big an animal can be to make the journey. Because the program is so new, Caesar was the first dog many of the Southwest staff and crew had seen.

Caesar did pretty well through the flight, but was a little anxious so Nick gave him a little medication to take the edge off. Caesar was very excited to be reunited with Maggie and Harley. He was also very interested in meeting his tiny look-alike, Dexter. Dexter is Dallas & Shannon's brand new little Shi-tzu puppy that looks a lot like Caesar. Dallas's blog has pictures of Dex. I want to get a picture of the two with Henry before we leave. I'll keep you posted.

Caesar back at my mom's house.

We miss Caesar. Jimmy asked if we could take him and Baby Hengry to the 'park of California' the other day.
