(CNN) — Flying with your cute little bundle of doggie love?
Each airline has its own rules about how to bring a small dog in the cabin or a larger dog in its crate with the checked luggage.
Not in a checked suitcase, as an independent Chihuahua discovered on Tuesday.
The dog was found in its owner’s checked luggage by Transportation Security Administration officers at LaGuardia Airport in Queens, New York.
Luckily for the dog, TSA screens all checked luggage. The officers in search of more dangerous items found the dog and called the owner, who had not intended to bring her darling dog on her Tuesday trip. The woman’s husband took the misbehaving pooch home.
The TSA’s security procedures do not prohibit you from bringing a pet on your flight, but a more breathable crate is suggested.
