This US Secret Service Dog has his own seat on a plane

WASHINGTON: A passenger in a US airliner captured an unusual sight – a German Shelphard perching on his own seat on a flight in Washington.

A pair of pointed ears sticking out from the seat in front was spotted by NBC journalist Kelly O’Donnell in a flight from Palm Beach to Washington DC on Monday.

The journalist couldn’t simply resist snapping this unusual spectacle.

The Independent reports that it was understood the German Shepherd was a Secret Service dog and part of the president’s security team.

Inevitably, O’Donnell’s post sparked a slew of bad dog jokes on Twitter.

Some saw the irony that a dog got better treatment than the doctor who was dragged off a United Airlines flight on Monday.

But other users saw the picture as evidence of the enormous cost of the president’s frequent trips to Florida.
