Jared told Fox 13, “We were dumbfounded and flat shocked and embarrassed, to be honest. She loves to burrow in our laundry baskets, closet, blankets, wherever she can get nice, warm and comfy, and on that day, I guess she chose our suitcase we had left open with clothes in it for hours.”

Fortunately, the couple was able to make last-minute arrangements to have the Chihuahua taken back home. Before that, however, they took pictures of Izzy to remember the moment.

“We planned this trip last minute to get away from the daily hustle and bustle of three dogs, a rabbit and several fish as well as two crazy, beautiful little girls,” Jared said.
