I flew home with two of mine. The two hour trip from the breeder's house to the airport was harder than the flying/airport part. I had a friend with me on both trips (WELL worth the cost of the extra ticket, IMO!!!) About halfway to the airport, Kodi started fussing, so we found a place to stop. We didn't dare put him on the ground, so we spread his pee pad in the trunk, let him potty there, and continued to the airport. We offered to let him pee in the airport, but he didn't need to, he slept all the way on the plane and did pee on his pad in the airport at the other end, before our hour ride home on that end.
Pixel started HOWLING within minutes of leaving the breeder's house. We thought she just needed to settle, so we kept going. Big mistake, which our noses quickly told us. She had diarrhea all over the inside of her carrier. Fortunately, we had extra bedding, lots of paper towels, wipes and bottled water. So we got her cleaned up, back in her carrier in clean bedding and she didn't make another peep. We SHOULD have listened to her, poor thing! At the airport, (again, 2 hours from the breeder) they had BIG planters, WAY off the ground, outside, with trees in them. So we popped her into one of those and she promptly peed. (no other dog had been in there, I'm SURE!!!) Again, she traveled on the plane without a peep, charming EVERYONE in the waiting area with her own sweet self. The trip home by car on the other end was just as uneventful.
Here is a picture of her in the airport waiting area. She sure was a cutie!!!
