Before you leave you house, Always...and I mean always .. make sure you know where your pets are. In a post shared to Facebook on September 26th, Jared Owens, age 39, and his wife, Kristi, age 36, said they were due to fly from Texas to Las Vegas when they tried to check their luggage and were told their suitcase was six pounds overweight.... this made them think that they may have simply over packed...or so they thought ! Jarred and Kristi moved over to the side and then they opened the suitcase to try and rearrange the contents or maybe just toss something that they really did not need.... and that's when they realized their dog "Icky" had snuck into their luggage !! . The couple says the Chihuahua hid inside one of Jared’s cowboy boots. Kathy Cook, a Southwest Airlines employee, went way above and beyond the call of duty and offered to dog-sit while the couple was in Las Vegas, but the couple was able to hand off Icky to a relative who lived near the airport.
