Chillin on the East Coast

Throughout the year, I like to travel to visit friends and family. And since my friends and family are all over the United States, that means I sometimes need to fly to get in all the fun. When I was a little puppy (not quite 6 months old and not quite 8 lbs), my people started flying with me. Now that I'm five years old, I've logged 25 airplane flights and a gazillion miles in the sky. I always fly in cabin at my people's feet and mostly just sleep during the flights. My people keep a constant watch on me, making sure I am okay and get sips of water along the way. I travel in a custom made Celltei bag: Celltei link

For this trip, my people tried out a new Adaptil D.A.P. (dog appeasing pheremone) collar on me to see if it would keep me chill during all the loud noises and general commotion of travel. The disposable collars are supposed to last 4 weeks. Overall we didn't notice any difference - good or bad - but it seems like a potential option to try if you are worried about how your dog will handle a plane flight. You can check out additional details here: Adaptil link.

Even though the west coast is my super happy home, I have a great time on the east coast too. They have great trees and grass and tons of bugs to chase. During the summer months, I usually help with the yard work which is especially fun, because I don't have my own yard back in San Diego.

Don't forget there are always more pictures of me at Tokyo: My Shiba Inu Tumblr
