AA Celebrity Sightings and Related (consolidated)

A bit off topic (unless the pooch is getting miles) but in all my years of flying, I saw something I had never seen. During the boarding I watched a dog - on a leash - walk down the aisle. Another passenger asked how this was possible, and was told the dog was going to sit in a purchased seat! The dog was clearly too large for an underseat carrier.

Later I was told the pooch was a 'celebrity' dog - and there are special rules for them.

I love dogs, and I could just see me taking my pooch in the main cabin sitting on a seat next to me - Golden Retriver - no problem - loves people and has great bladder control.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

Does anyone know what the rules are?

By the way, it was the childs diaper three rows back that needed changeing....the dog was perfect.
