“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.
Huxley decided to abandon his mom and sit next to the man in front of them instead, who was more than happy to welcome his new furry seatmate. The puppy was perfectly content hanging out with his new best friend and completely ignored his mom — until he realized she had opened up a snack.

Huxley stuck his head between the seats to try and sneak a taste but couldn’t quite make it work — and his fellow passengers couldn't stop laughing at the faces he made.

"Guys I can't breathe 😂😂😂," Aitchison wrote on Facebook.
Even though he couldn’t reach his mom’s snack, Huxley continued to entertain his mom and the rest of the flight with his silly faces until he got bored of that too, and went back to making friends with everyone around him.

He was making lots of people laugh and the man next to me asked to take his photo to send to his daughter.”
Huxley spent most of the flight entertaining his fellow passengers, and with such a cute puppy to look at and play with, there’s no doubt the flight went by in a flash.
