An American couple was taken by surprise while traveling to the airport in Lubbock, Texas, bound for Las Vegas, Nevada. Upon being reported overweight in the bag, Jared and Christy Owens found the family pet inside the suitcase.
The Chihuahua named Icky was hiding inside a boot that was in the couple’s luggage. The airline employee warned the couple that the suitcase exceeded the permitted animal weight by 2.5 kg.
Without the possibility of taking the dog on the trip, the couple had to turn to their brother-in-law who took the animal back to the family home. In a post on Facebook, Jared says that an employee of the company also volunteered to take care of Ikki:
“You know it’s going to be a great trip to Las Vegas when you get to the airport to check your bags… .6 pounds overweight and a Chihuahua comes out of your boot!! Unreal! Let the joke begin.” Give!! Shout out to Kathy ###Southweststairlines for her amazing customer service!!She offered to see Icky until we get back!!Come on!!”, he wrote.
