What would you do if you were on a plane and an adorable dog came and sat next to you? While you might ask yourself what was going on, if it was Huxley the golden retriever, you would probably be too busy laughing to think much about it. On a recent international flight, Huxley kept the passengers entertained for part of the flight.
Traveling by airplane
It all started when Huxley and his mom Ursula Daphne Aitchison had to take a trip from London to Ibiza. Of course, the duo had to fly to the island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. The only problem was that Huxley, who is technically still a puppy, tends to get bored easily. It wasn’t too long until he was looking for something to occupy his time on the flight.
“He was sat in the seat next to me but got in a mood which he often does when I don’t pay him enough attention,” Aitchison told The Dodo.
Abandoning his mom
So, leaving his mom behind, Huxley moved to the row of seats directly in front of theirs. There he met a nice gentleman who was content to spend time with his new, furry friend. Huxley was happy where he was until he heard a familiar sound. His mom had opened a snack, and he wanted some.
“He quickly changed his tune when he heard me eating my crisps,” Aitchison said.
Begging for a snack
It was this point that Huxley turned around to get some of Aitchinson’s snack. Of course, the seat was in the way, but Huxley came up with an idea. Sticking his head as far as he could, the cute dog started begging for a snack. When that didn’t work he came up with another idea.
Next, he stuck his tongue out. Now, all his mom had to do was lay the chip on his tongue. When that didn’t work he stuck out his tongue even more. Surely she could reach it now. But it was all for naught as his mom kept eating her chips while Huxley forlornly watched from between the seats.
A little bit of comic relief
Eventually, Huxley bared his teeth, but finally realized he wasn’t getting any of his mom’s chips. The rest of the passengers couldn’t help but laugh at all of the funny faces the eager dog was making. It was a great way for them to take their mind off of the long flight.
“He spent 30 minutes in that seat; the man next to him said he was a very good passenger and the man across the aisle was taking selfies with him,” Aitchison said. “Huxley kept giving him his paw to hold. He was making lots of people laugh and the man next to me asked to take his photo to send to his daughter.”
