Flying fur!  We have Gayle Martz to thank for creating a soft sided pet carrier and for persuading airlines to let dogs travel.  Actually, we have her Lhasa Apso Sherpa to thank because Sherpa would sit quietly in the carrier while Gayle talked on and on and on to airline execs about how quiet and good and perfect pets would be in cabin.

But the new thing is Jet Blue starting an airline Miles-For-Pets-Program, and allowing more pets in cabin per flight than other airline previously and even selling a pet carrier and travel kit.  Well, of course that’s just commerce isn’t it: sell product and aggrandize your own commercialism into altruism… but this brings me to the main point. 

Dogs are big (we know, we know already) and dogs are evolving rapidly.  One century they were snarling outside the campsite and, in only a few hundred years, here they are sitting patiently in a duffle 10,000 feet in the air.  It’s the new nomadism.  And people are evolving too.  One century we couldn’t manage without sled dogs and watch dogs and hunting dogs, and next, just a few centuries later, we were all about compartmenlizing the dog into doghouses (for the unfortunate) and dog shows (for the slightly more fortunate.)  And now, we can’t leave town without a dog, well behaved and sociable and patient.  Especially patient. 

On one of our flights to Puerto Rico, with particularly un-evolved flight attendants, we were sorely tried by those nervous ninnies telling us that if “that dog” barked while in flight, he would be carried to the” lockup” in the luggage hold.  And meanwhile all “that dog” did was snore mildly and dream of Puerto Rico’s endless dog beach.  (But more about that later.)

Point being… it’s getting easier and easier to put the pup on the plane which is just about the only good news I’ve read in months. Think about it and you’ll know I’m right.  A small, small part of the world is getting better.

Such as bubbly, Bourdeaux Louis Vuitton wine beverages, cheeses, and several other activities which significantly enhance this particular existence, Louis Vuitton purses started within Portugal. At first from the 19th hundred years, the actual emperor associated with Portugal, Napoleon 3, wanted anyone to handle the actual totes associated with Empress Eugene.

As a world famous typhoon in world fashion industry, every move of Louis Vuitton, be it big or small, can always focus of attention of the whole globe. No matter you are fashion ladies or traditional women, nearly every female has ever dreamed of possessing an authentic Louis Vuitton handbag, wallet, purse or shoes once for all. Of course, they must be a group of people who can never understand why there are so many frenetic women could be equal to three to six months of house rent or salary in buying an original Louis Vuitton bag. For those non-Louis Vuitton fans, they certainly do not comprehend what that kind of feel if your long-cherished luxury and fantasy dream have been satisfied.Based on so many years’ classical inheritance and fashion pursuit, as a faithful fan of Louis Vuitton, we firmly believe that it will have a more prosperous future. Wear and tear of time will never leave a stigma on its splendid distinction. Louis Vuitton aims to let the whole world fully enjoy the exotic flavor from romantic south France. As long as you keep up with the pace of Louis Vuitton, you can always be in top position in world fashion industry. No matter where you are going, once take a unique Louis Vuitton handbag, wallet, purse or shoes with you, you will surely be the focus of attention and object of jealousy of all people around you. Just have faith in Louis Vuitton’s mysterious magic to add glaour and charisma to your usual plain self, that is it.
