    Can't make this stuff up....Must be a slow news day.....:confused:

    It was an ordinary flight from Los Angeles to Philadelphia until a smell startled passengers.

    Passenger Steve McCall could barely believe his eyes and neither could the other passengers aboard U.S. Airways Flight 598. He told INSIDE EDITION’s Diane McInerney, "About an hour into the flight, I started smelling this terrible smell. I look up the aisle way and there's a dog pooping right in the middle of the aisle. It's a big dog, three or four feet tall or long, and he was just going!"

    Passenger Chris Law took pictures and tweeted: "So the full-sized dog that's on my flight, well it did what dogs do & went to the bathroom when it felt like it smack dab in the middle of aisle."

    The animal is a service dog according to U.S. Airways. The crew did their best to clean up the mess, but, as McCall told McInerney, “An hour later, it still smelled bad, and after they cleaned it all up, it pooped again!"

    McInerney asked, "So, how did the passengers react?"

    He said,"A couple of people started dry-heaving, a couple of people were throwing up."

    Another passenger tweeted: "Can't make this up. The dog has now (blanked) twice."

    McCall told McInerney, "The second time after the dog pooped they ran out of paper towels, they didn't have anything else. The pilot comes on the radio, ‘Hey, we have a situation in the back, we're going to have to emergency land!'"

    The plane was diverted to Kansas City, Missouri, where a cleaning crew went to work on the second mess.

    Before you say "Bad dog!,” consider this: the flight's departure time had been delayed for two hours because of a fuel spill on the tarmac. That's a pretty long time for a dog to be sitting on a plane and the dog's owner was truly sorry for the inconvenience caused by her beloved Bowser.

    McCall said, "She said, ‘Hey, so sorry, I want to get all your addresses so I can give you a Starbucks gift card!’ "

    McInerney said, "At least you can laugh about it!"

    He replied, "This is the most unique flight experience I've ever had!"

    Need some duct tape and a plastic bag, cover the stain and fly on!
    C'mon the owner couldn't hold a barf bag behind it? Something?

    I bet if someone "accidentally" dropped an unwrapped Baby Ruth in the aisle it'd be considered an act of terror.

    It must have been a service dog. The owner probably needs to be checked out to figure out why they would let their dog get to that state.

    I feel sorry for the dog.
