I have a problem. My mom had planned on driving Sophie from South Carolina to me in Michigan next month. Well, My grandmother became ill and will be moving in with her. She is not sure when she would be able to make the trip, so she offered to ship Sophie. I'm really not sure about that idea. I dont know anything about how the airline handle puppies. Years ago my bother in-law worked for an airline and said to never ship a pet, he said it was terrible. I dont know if things have changed or what. If anyone has shipped or been shipped a puppy please let me know how it went. I just dont know what to do.
