    Claim your pet is a "service animal" and they get to sit on your lap.

    bully breads are the only ones I know of for DL but it might be more. 
     
    And I think some airplanes can't carry dogs in the hold. 67 maybe? Kev?

    we have a pretty big marine science program down in SAV so i'm not overly shocked on that. 
     
    Also have meet sales in Athens I think a few times a month. Might be every Tuesday.

    The technical ban on AA is for brachycephalic dogs, which are essentially most if not all short snouted breeds.

    Their anatomy doesn't allow them to regulate the air temperature as easily as a longer snout dog, and that can lead to respiratory distress & death.

    I'm guessing DL's breed ban was for the same reason.

    I believe that's correct.
