Tanza, Thank you..is is a cutie.
The layover in netherlands is about 2 hours..the flight from Sweden is dead early in the morning, like 6:30..
I thought about the bathroom thing, right before I read your post..great minds think alike..as a seasoned travler with kids, I know you have to come up with your own solutions..puppy pad is the thing..
Do you think a sherpa with open netting will be too cold? He could just drape one of the blanakets given out over part of it to insulate more, or should I have him have a blanket insie the bag? This bag only had three sides of netting, actually more like 2.5 sides as one is only half way down. Which might be a good thing. I know I always freeze my butt off on planes.
Wher eyou frown upon when you put the bag on your lap? I can see some grumpy flight attendants not liking that. Better a happy quiet puppy than a mad 300+ people onboard..imo!!
EXACTLY … a quiet puppy is better then one screaming.... as the story goes when Carol Webb picked up her puppy and he screams blood murder until she took him out of the bag and put him in her lap... the Flight Attn, said "you can't do that"... She said "Your choice, quiet and sleeping, awake and screaming"... They opted for quiet and sleeping... but as far as just having the bag in my lap after we took off, no one blinked an eye...
And yes about the blanket, we had the blankets they handed out wrapped around the sherpa and it was still cold, but the blanket covering it kept the drafts out. And I had my jacket under the Sherpa, since it was the floor that was so cold... I also had a couple of small stuffed toys in the sherpa they could snuggle with and a big bully stick that they could chew on, which helped put them to sleep. I used the big, big bully sticks because they can't really get a good grip to chew and chew... but it was just something there.. like a pacifier.
Just tell your Brother not to be concerned about feeding the pup... better off not to....(in my experience anyway) and if he can keep him awake during the 2hr layover, chances are that he just might sleep the entire next flight.
The one time I had an early, early morning flight, I got up at 3am and then kept the puppy awake till we left for the airport...ggg Talk about tired...Oh that was me that was exhausted!!!
