Thanks, plays well on my laptop.
China is such a sweet dog.
Great video, and so many dogs helped.
Thanks to you, and so many others, giving the gift of life.

Default How many

Arlen

You can probably answer a question that has been in my mind for a long time. How many and what size kennels can you fit in a RV6? What combination of kennels do you prefer?

I have been thinking about P&P, I have signed up but not taken the leap yet. I do not want to commit and then not be able to fit the kennel or kennel's in the plane.

Mike,

Do it! It's great fun. And, the fuel cost is deductible (they're a 501(c)(3) ).

For crates, I use one of these 24" collapsible wire crates on the floor behind the seat: http://www.chewy.com/dog/midwest-lif...EBRhoCq47w_wcB

and I also have a couple small plastic crates provided by PnP that I can sit on top of the wire crate or put one on the right seat.

And, of course, little "China" wasn't in a crate at all for our flight.

I've probably transported 50 dogs over the past 5 years, and every one of them gets calm and goes to sleep after the engine starts.
