Video Of Puppy Being Chased Across Tarmac Divides Dog Lovers

A video of a pup leading a chase across a tarmac was published earlier this month and dog lovers are split on whether the footage is adorable or irresponsible.

The homeward bound dog escaped earlier this month at the airport in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. The video, filmed at Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla International Airport in Guadalajara, Jalisco, shows baggage handlers chasing after a dog that escaped from its crate before emBARKing on his journey.

In the footage, (filmed by a fellow traveler) while the dog galivants and canters around like this is all a game, the baggage handlers aren’t too amused, chasing it down and trying to get him under control. It was the leash… they could do. (We’re so sorry. But we’re not going to stop.)

It’s unclear whether the plane had just arrived or was preparing to depart and how the pup was able to Howldini itself out of his travel crate. But what is clear is there’s a definite divide on proper pup travel amongst those who watched the video.

Some viewers were delighted by the video, as one stating:

“After all that exercise I’m sure he slept well on the flight” – Paula M.

And in a nod to the possibly the most famous pop song to mention “dogs”:

“Who let the dogs out?

Who, who, who, who, who?

Who let the dogs out?

Who, who, who, who, who?

Who let the dogs out?” – Mandi A.

But other afficiodogos didn’t see what was so funny with one poster declaring:

“It’s 2022 and airlines till think it’s okay to treat dogs like cargo. It disgusts me!” – Melissa H.

While some shared their own personal experience:

“Not funny. They let the dog escape the crate he was in. That’s how you have those horror stories about dogs being transported in cargo that got escaped and lost. Since my dog came to me travelling like that, I don’t find it amuzing.” – Bebe J.

“Our basset got loose at the airport when we were moving, and I was a child. He was never caught.” – Tannie F.

But still, there were a healthy awful of commentators just offering sound advice:

“Mmk never chase a dog that can out run you , always just put food out” – Samantha M.

The illicit Luke Skybarker was recaptured without injury though there’s no update on the dog’s final destination. Rebarkless, here’s to hoping for a travel solution that serves all boarding parties, furry family members included.
