I have been crazy busy with school work, which is why there haven't been many bklynbiblio posts lately, but stay tuned, because there are some good posts coming in the next few days. However, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to share news about the recently-founded Pet Airways, which is without a doubt one of the most brilliant developments in animal care. This "Travel For Your Best Friend" company is the first airline dedicated exclusively to treating pets like people by allowing them to travel in the main cabin, regardless of their size. While people can travel with their small pets in carriers that fit under a seat, larger pets have to be shipped as cargo and not surprisingly are often treated as such. Pet Airways is running an introductory special with rates for their "pawssengers" starting at $149 each way for travel between cities like New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Even if you don't use their airline, check out their website, http://petairways.com/, for helpful tips on pet traveling. Here's a short commercial for the company.
