Did anyone else catch this article? There was a link on msn.com about how snout nosed dogs account for half of the plane travel deaths per year. Personally I think they are breeding bulldogs to be so extreme - I don't like breeding a dog to the point where the heads are now so large c-section births are necessary. Just thought I would post it in case anyone has a breed that might be at higher risk.

Here is the link:

I would love a bulldog or boston someday.. but I don't think I'll EVER get one because I absolutely do not support their breeding. :( That's so sad.

My shar-pei mix has flown now three times in her life, and while I was scared the whole time, she made it fine. I think the biggest issue with Brachycephalic dogs is that the way they are being bred these days. Another big issue is that people tranquilize their dogs even though the vet/airline/literature recommend not doing so.
