Texas Couple Finds Pet Chihuahua Hiding Inside Luggage – Last month, at Lubbock Airport, a Texas couple was instructed to reorganize their luggage because it exceeded the weight restriction. When they opened the luggage, however, they discovered Icky, their tiny pet chihuahua, snuggled inside.
“They put it on the scale and this bag is basically like five, five and a half pounds overweight. Really quickly we are like, oh, we have got to rearrange some stuff. Opens it up and literally, there’s our dog coming out of my boot, coming out of my boot with his head bopping up,” Jared Owens, who was traveling to Las Vegas with his wife Kristi on Sept. 26, told KCBD. “[Icky’s] the burrower, that’s what she does. She burrows in clothes, she burrows in, obviously suitcases now.”
Owens offered thanks to Cathy Cook, the Southwest Airlines employee who made the discovery. Cook even offered to watch the pup, he said.
Fortunately, the couple had family nearby who were able to take Icky home, NBCDFW reported.
Pictures showed Icky peeping out from inside a cowboy boot inside the suitcase.
