Have we taken this "man's best friend" thing a little too far? The travel industry doesn't seem to think so. According to Gadling, Chicago's O'Hare Airport has opened a lounge designed especially for pets.
According to the story, the on-site kennel is located in United Airline's new cargo facility. There are 28 separate enclosures which can hold different types of animals comfortably until their boarding zones are called. This is the third pet facility that United is operating in the U.S. Services are also available at Houston and Newark.
"United says the lounge staff is trained to provide first-class care for the animals, which includes walking, bathing and grooming them," writes Gadling.
