When a Kansas family taking a United flight from Oregon to Kansas City, Missouri boarded their dog on the plane, they probably hadn’t yet heard that United had just killed a passenger’s puppy. When they landed, they went to the cargo area to pick up their 10-year-old German Shepherd, but were greeted by a great Dane instead. Fortunately, the Dane was alive. Meanwhile, their German Shepherd, Irgo, was still in the air. On a different plane. Headed for Japan. At first United tried to tell the family the the great Dane was their German Shepherd, because the paperwork said so. Once United admitted its mistake it blamed it on similar looking kennels.
At least the dog arrived ALIVE.
