Amin: I can’t stand to be away from Fifi for two weeks. Can’t we bring her along?

Eva: We’ve talked about this before. Our dog does not like to travel. We’ll board her.

Amin: What if we get a really big crate or carrier that Fifi will feel comfortable in?

Eva: It won’t make a difference if she’s left out on a hot tarmac and has to spend hours in cargo hold.

Amin: It’ll be well ventilated and the crate will be large enough for her to turn around in.

Eva: She’ll still bark and whimper and you know it. Do you want her to suffer?

Amin: Of course not. What if she can travel in the cabin with us?

Eva: She’s too big.

Amin: We could change our travel plans, drive instead of fly.

Eva: We’re not changing our travel plans. She’ll be fine at the kennel.

Amin: She’ll have separation anxiety.

Eva: Are you talking about the dog or about you?
