So...recently, I became involved with a unique pet-related business venture called that flies the pets of the "1 percenters" in private jets from place to place. We wanted to provide this to our luxury villa clientele. We are now working in tandem with Jet Senters Aviation.
According to the CEO of the American Pet Products Association (APPA), we Americans spent an astounding $60 billion on our pets last year! Doesn't it stand to reason that the "1 percenters" of the pet-loving world both want (and can afford) to make sure their loving pets are transported by air safely as well as bringing these members of their families on vacation with them?
The picture above is of Hercules, a long-haired Chihuahua, formerly my youngest daughter's beloved companion and for the past 8 years, my former wife's best friend. When he was a tiny baby, Hercules traveled the country in my daughter's purse when she visited her former boyfriend who was a professional baseball player. As Hercules grew to his "formidable?!" 10 lbs, he could no longer be brought aboard commercial airlines and sit with his family. No way was Hercules being subjected to the uncomfortable and often dangerous cargo transport of pets on commercial airlines. So...Hercules was relegated to staying behind during family vacations that required air transport.
Until now that is...Hercules' "step-daddy" can now bring our little friend to visit our pet-friendly villas and be whisked by private jet to get there.
I'm determined to come back as a "pampered pet" in my next life!
