The Washington Post reports:
Instead of paying extra “pet fees” to hotels or airlines, (a lot of travellers are) spiriting their animal companions into their bags or under blankets in the hope of saving a few bucks.
They also are bending the truth when it comes to their pets, said Ami Moore, a Chicago-based canine behaviorist. One wealthy client recently offered Moore $10,000 to “certify” her dog as a service animal, which would have given the animal a free ride. She refused.
Hmmm. It’s that classic economic truth. Raise prices unfairly high and you create a black market.
And what exactly is a”non-refundable deposit” if not a contradiction in terms?
