In a Twitter post that’s going viral, a gigantic and very cute dog, referred to by user Madeleine as the “fattest dog ever”, was given a first class seat on an American Airlines flight from LAX to Denver last night. I’ve reached out for a copy of the video and future details…updates to come.
UPDATE – Mashable has found out more about the situation:
Mashable has learned that the dog’s name is Hank and he belongs to Kari Whitman, an interior designer who founded Ace of Hearts Dog Rescue in Beverly Hills, California. Hank is Whitman’s support animal and, due to an illness, can only move with the aid of a cart, which explains his weight. We hope Hank enjoys many more relaxing flights in first class.
