Now your pets can poop at the airport like the civilized creatures they are!

Now your pets can poop at the airport like the civilized creatures they are!

Kennedy Airport may be in the toilet for fliers, but now it’s No. 1 with their pets.

The airport last week opened a pet potty — complete with fake grass and a red fire hydrant — in Terminal 4. And the single-stall bathroom, which is decorated with paw prints and lined with Epoxy and waterproof turf, is already making jet-setting pet owners purr.

GoGo Stik Review – Great Tool – a Must Have

As soon as you master the ‘wrist scoop’ movement it works fantastic. My husband was skeptical at first, but now, completes the ‘scooping’ job in no time at all! We love how we can use regular shopping bags instead of spending money on buying bags. Easy to empty and store. He plans on taking it with him on walks, once he starts walking the dogs.

Another GoGo Stick Review – Solution for Poo

on April 18, 2016 |Verified Purchase
Absolutely the best solution for poo. We have foster dogs and at the time we purchased this we had a couple of puppies in addition to our usual pack. Needless to say there was a lot of poo in our yard. Once you get the knack of it it is so easy! and I LOVE being able to use any bag and not to have to worry about the plastic scooper getting nasty (unless there is operator error lol). Worth every penny! We even take it camping with us and the campground bags work….a little challenging and fill up after 1 pup but they will work. I recommend regular grocery bags or buy the biodegradable ones that come with the product.

Pets on trains a hit for Amtrak and riders

Pets on trains a hit for Amtrak and riders

Amtrak had recently started a pilot allowing small cats and dogs on Acela for weekend rides. The cost of bringing a pet is $25, in addition to the human’s ticket. Tucker, all three pounds of him, was among the first passengers, and Moche was delighted. After the success of a 2014 pilot program in Illinois and a much larger pilot along the Northeast Corridor this past fall and winter, Amtrak announced in February that its pet program on the Northeast Regional and Downeaster routes (from Norfolk, Va., to Brunswick, Maine) would become permanent. They also added the service for longer trips, for which all of the legs (pun intended) do not exceed seven hours. The longer Auto Train from Virginia to Florida, for instance, is not included. At the same time, they announced the Acela Express pilot, which runs into June.
