‘Tis the season for holiday cheer and good deeds like the precious story I’m about to share with you.
It seems that the customer services reps at Continental Airlines are chock full of the holiday spirit this year. When a 4-month puppy, Whopper, was stranded at the airport, the airline’s employees offered to take care of him for the holidays.
It turns out that the puppy was barred from a flight to Spain because his owner hadn’t secured a health certificate from a vet to have him fly out of the country. Without all of his shots it would also be impossible to place him in a shelter or pet hotel.
Where would Whopper go for the holidays?
Quickly two Continental Airlines employees came to the rescue. First Jane Bossi took the puppy home with her, sending daily email updates and photos to his owner in Spain. Then when Bossi took off for a holiday visit to her mother’s, a co-worker took over and welcomed the puppy into her own home.
Thanks to the kind and generous employees of Continental Airlines, Whopper was lucky enough to have a home for the holidays!
What would you have done? Would you have taken in a stranded dog for the holidays?
