They can’t ask their owners to bring them along when they flee. They can’t cross the border on their own. But they are scared nonetheless. They board our buses hoping for a moment of peace. Their selfless companionship eases the pain of their owners. They don’t whine, they aren’t loud or aggressive. They have absolute faith in their dearest humans. Dogs, cats, canaries, parakeets, rats, and other furry and feathered creatures have become regulars on our bus trips. Because how are you supposed to say no when a pug’s sad black eyes look straight into your soul?
