Woof Woof Reviews the Minneapolis Airport’s Dog Relief Area

Woof Woof had an hour layover, and I felt he needed a bathroom break after getting a McDonald’s cheeseburger patty for lunch. We found the pet relief area that was in a shared room with nursing mothers. The pet portion was a room that couldn’t have been more than 8 feet by 8 feet. It had artificial grass and a fire hydrant. The grass was wet, presumably from the flush cleaning feature. Woof Woof stepped in the room, sniffed around, and then decided against peeing in that area. I think he just didn’t like artificial grass. He disliked the Minneapolis relief area so much that he preferred waiting another 3.5 hours until he exited the Phoenix airport to use the bathroom. There were two other facilities, but they were outside the secured area.
