Hooray! A “Feel Good” Airport Story!

by SharonKurheg

The world of travel has not had a lot of good news recently. Felled by a worldwide pandemic, headlines tout airlines practically begging for passengers, hotels continually show how clean and safe they are, and, of course, hundreds of thousands of people who can never travel again because they’ve passed away. So just ANY good news is like a ray of sunshine. With that, here’s some sunshine for today.

It seems that someone’s toy dalmatian was left behind outside the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport’s (CVG) security checkpoint. To help find the toy pup’s owner, they, of course, took to Twitter:

With no immediate response from the little guy’s family, they gave the pup a grand tour of the airport:

The next day he even got an unofficial name from the airport and became an official CVG ID, complete with all-important parking privileges!

Allegiant Airlines even got involved in trying to find “Jet’s” owner…

A few days later he even gets some ice cream from a local ice cream chain at the airport (don’t they know dogs are lactose intolerant?)

Finally…FINALLY…his owner was located and “Jet” was on his way!

His departure was even on the local news! Lucky dog!

He even brought a friend with him on the way back to his home in Florida:

And HAPPY DAY, “Jet” was finally reunited with his owner, whose name is Jaydence. Jet, whose real name is “Masch Masch,” was a gift from the judge who finalized Jaydence’s adoption 2 years earlier, so he’s a VERY important part of the family!

According to NBC affiliate WLWT Channel 5, Jaydence, along with his two brothers, Sully and Corbin, live in Florida. According to their mom, Phyllis, she and her husband were fostering all three boys but as each one came up for adoption, they adopted him. Each child got a stuffed animal from the judge on their adoption and Jet/Masch Masch was Jaydence’s.

The family was in Cincinnatti and Indianapolis, visiting friends, and Jaydence wound up leaving Masch Masch behind at the airport. That’s when Allegiant and airport personnel joined forces to help find the toy pup’s home.

I love a happy ending, don’t you? 🙂
