I am allergic to both cats and dogs and in fact find both pretty pointless.

However, What is worse than a screaming kid on a cross country flight? Nothing.

Agree about kids. I would not have wanted to be on the plane when my daughter flew home with her youngest. He screamed all the way. Poor passengers.

What about other people that let their dogs roam? Why is this allowed. We are so crazy as a society that we actually look at this as a positive. So many things that could go wrong here and completely irresponsible behavior. Yes, dog is smart for a dog. So what. That's not the point. Totally idiotic behavior by the owner
To every rule, there are exceptions. Why? Because people can think and understand and give tacit approval... If the dog was not desired, then something would have happened by now to prevent it. I would guess that this dog has proven by it's bearing and manner that it is accepted as a member of this bus community.

Sure, sooner or later, some sourpuss will cause enough of a stink that it will be excluded. You probably won't have to wait long.

Some people were meant to complain about everything. Seems like a cool story to me.

Better behaved than most people on the bus, so I sure wouldn't complain.

Yes, the cat will probably be at the theatre watching that movie "The Birds".

I tend to trust canines a bit more than I trust primates.

And I'd probably rather fly or travel near a canine or feline traveler than a juvenile primate traveler. But I use both thick earplugs and protective headphones as well as a nightmask, and sometimes take Diphenhydramine or Etizolam (or both) when I have to fly.
