Flights can be boring for the best of us, and we’ve always spared a thought for the children and babies who don’t have a clue where they are or how long they’re going to be on the plane for! But one passenger we never stopped to think about is pets. It’s not often that we see cats and dogs on a plane, as they often have to fly below deck with all of the luggage. But sometimes, exceptions are made, and animals are given their very own seat on the plane!

This was the case for this next story, which features a sweet little puppy who was trying his best to pass the time on a flight from London to Ibiza.

The little guy stuck his head through the back of his chair and looked so adorable that the passengers behind couldn’t help snapping a few pictures of him! They shared the pics onto Facebook for us all to see, and our hearts can’t take these levels of cuteness.

It was a big day for Huxley the Labrador pup, as he was flying out to Ibiza for the very first time with his mom! You’d expect a puppy to be pretty excited to be on their first-ever flight, but like all little people, Huxley soon became bored.

“He was sat in the seat next to me but got in a mood which he often does when I don’t pay him enough attention,” Ursula Daphne Aitchison, Huxley’s mom, told The Dodo.

After deciding that his mom wasn’t giving him enough attention, Huxley decided to go and sit on an empty seat next to the stranger in the row in front. Being the cute puppy that he is, Huxley knows that it’s usually pretty easy to get along with strangers, and all was going swimmingly until he heard a noise. His mom was opening a snack, and Huxley knew that there was nothing he loved more than a tasty treat.

“He quickly changed his tune when he heard me eating my crisps,” Aitchison said.

Now he didn’t know what to do. Should he stay sitting next to the friendly stranger, or should he return to mom, where he would get snacks but no attention?

Luckily, Huxley is a quick thinker and immediately came up with a solution. The hilarious pup stuck his head through the gap between the seats and stuck his tongue out in an attempt to get a bite of those delicious chips.

He made some pretty funny faces as he tried to get a bite, and the other passengers around him couldn’t help having a chuckle.

Huxley’s mom couldn’t resist getting a few action shots of her greedy pup, and she shared them onto her Facebook where they immediately went viral. The post, captioned, “Guys I can’t breathe 😂😂😂,” received over 20k likes, as well as thousands of comments and shares.

Huxley spent a good amount of time trying to reach his mom’s snacks, but he eventually gave in and went back to making friends with all those around him.

“He spent 30 minutes in that seat; the man next to him said he was a very good passenger and the man across the aisle was taking selfies with him,” Aitchison said. “Huxley kept giving him his paw to hold. He was making lots of people laugh and the man next to me asked to take his photo to send to his daughter.”

What a great end to Huxley’s first-ever flight! Are we jealous that we weren’t on that flight? Almost certainly. Check out Huxley’s Instagram account hugoandursula, for more adorable pics of the sweet pup.
