Travel Tales Episode #1

THIS TALE BEGINS along the California coastline on a sunny winter day. A plane flies overhead, re­minding me that our flight back to New York is only hours away. I’m not at all nervous, as I know I’m safe in my bag, my reservation has been made, all the things that I simply can’t live with­out fit in THE ACCESSORY Pouch or the SHERPA Organizer that matches my SHERPA BAG. A lining is in my bag. My Health Certificate and shot record are up-to-date. Now I begin to wonder: will the plane be full and will I be cramped be­tween those big bulky carry-ons? Funny … those bulky bags get on for free, but I have to pay $50! However, it is money well spent be­cause it allows me to be in the cabin with Mother, who is always there to comfort me if I need it and vice versa. I go every­where in my bag, not just on airplanes. In fact, I never leave home without it!

Once upon a time, this was not possible, so Mother and I embarked on a mission to have my SHERPA BAG approved by the airlines. After going to the FAA and USDA to learn about their rules, then to all the humane associations and veteri­narians to get their stamp of approval, we were on our way to begin work­ing with each airline to allow small pets in the passenger cabin. In the past Air Canada, Alaska, America West, Ameri­can, Continental, Delta, Northwest, TWA, Tower Air, United, US Airways and WestJet all officially approve THE SHERPA BAGS for in-cabin travel. The continuous improvements that have Benn made to my SHERPA products are great for keeping us safe and comfortable, both in the air and on the road. Read more
