When April Easterwood Thornton boarded her plane, which was headed from Atlanta, Georgia to Newark, New Jersey, she encountered a very unusual passenger taking the same trip.
As she was making her way over to her seat through the first-class cabin, she was met with a little furry face.
April wasn’t shocked by the fact that there was a dog on the plane, as she knew that service dogs could accompany their owners in the cabins, but what shocked her was the dog’s treatment.
Namely, this dog wasn’t doing any sort of servicing. In fact, it was doing quite the opposite.
The little pup was sitting very comfortably in the seat, visibly enjoying every luxury that first class could offer.
“I noticed the pup right away because she was sprawled out in her very own seat which happened to be the first one on the plane! I was amazed that she has her own seat. I hadn’t seen that before,” said April.
Even though April was seated further away, she did notice that the pup was very well-behaved during the entirety of the flight.
She looked like it was not her first time being there as well. Very comfy in her seat up front.
April knew that because of this special treatment, this dog was incredibly important to her dad. And, this was proven to her when she reached her destination.
As she was picking up her luggage, April saw the adorable little face once more, but this time, it was going around the baggage carousel.
The pup’s face was printed on a custom suitcase!
I bumped into the owner again at baggage claim and noticed his suitcase right away. Like, as it was on the baggage carousel.
April also added that the owner was extremely proud of his suitcase and enjoyed showing it off to the entire airport.
As a proud doggo mom herself, April totally understood the dog owner’s need to spoil the little creature that brings so much joy into one’s life.
She even stated that every dog deserves a luxurious seat in every form of transportation and I couldn’t agree more!
