Dachshund flies first class from Florida to Missouri to be reunited with owner
Abby Mason hadn’t seen the dog, named Addison, since June, when, on a visit to Florida, the dog got away from relatives and disappeared.
Addison was picked up as stray in Tampa, and Hillsborough County Animal Services identified her through a microchip.
That just left the problem of getting the dog to Missouri, but another dachshund lover stepped forward to help with that.
Crista Banks, after hearing of the dog’s plight, used her Skymiles to escort Addison on the the flight to Kansas City — and, even though dachshunds don’t really need the extra leg room, Delta upgraded them to first class.
