Furrtographer Josh Norem kindly provided us with these hi-res shots of Chihuahuas boarding Virgin America at SFO for a flight to Newark Liberty International Airport and new homes back east. (Click the thumbnail for a quick report from Fox News.) Since 2010, VA’s partnered with San Francisco Animal Care and Control for these fun and furry flights o’ fancy.
Click :50 into this next video- doesn’t seem to be sound with it.
Boo served as the MC for the event.
The other little guys were, um, quite interested in the Virgin SpokesPup.
Yes, quite interested.
There are a lot of Chihuahua’s that need homes in the Bay Area–too many, in fact.
According to HuffPo, “When Virgin America launched Operation Chihuahua, the tiny canines made up one-third of shelter dogs and were showing up in droves of up to eight a day.”
So the little knuckleheads get the VIP treatment on VA.
