This week I had an incredible experience on my trip to Alaska. On our way back from Denali National Park we stopped in Wasilla, just outside of Anchorage, at the headquarters of the Iditarod. After scouring the gift shop for the usual trinkets we went to see the Iditarod huskies. I had the joy of holding and playing with 3 huskie puppies. We also met Earl the full grown husky. What a treat.

Recently, there was a posting on Facebook regarding a military family that was relocated to another base. The posting went on to say that the military contracts with a certain airline for the relocation, but the airline had a policy of not accepting “aggressive breeds” of dogs. This family had an “aggressive breed” dog.
When Pet Airways was up, flying and transporting pets, we faced this same issue and early on we set up a policy that we did not discriminate against any pet, no matter what breed.
