If you like to travel with your dog, something to know first..

Archie ran across this story about Bulldogs and other short nosed pooches are being banned from air travel, because it's harder for them to breath and the elevation can cause problems. This is only in the cargo area, and does not pertain if they are in the cabin. The ban includes some cats like the Persian and the Himalayian. The Agriculture Department reports 189 animal deaths on commercial flights between June 2005 and June 2011, The New York Times reports. "Of those animals, 98 — more than half — were brachycephalic breeds." (Full story) Each airline has some different guidelines/rules, so check their sites for all the 411. United has banned these breeds from flying in the cargo area...
