A Boston couple are thanking a JetBlue flight crew for coming to the rescue of their French bulldog when the canine had trouble breathing. Burt said that they were lucky enough to be on a flight with attendant Renaud, who owns a French bulldog himself so knew what to do when Darcy fell ill. Without warning the dog's tongue and gums turned blue and she began panting frantically.

Darcy, the French bulldog owned by Steven and Michele Burt of Westminster, Mass., receives oxygen on a JetBlue flight Thursday, July 5, 2018.One of JetBlue's flight attendants poses with Darcy after the bulldog received oxygen on a JetBlue flight Thursday, July 5, 2018. A flight attendant came by and reminded the couple that airline regulations require dogs to be kept in carriers at their feet (unless they are emotional support animals).

Crew member Renaud Spencer holds Darcy after the dog was feeling better. Spencer then brought a small oxygen tank with a face mask out to use on the dog.

"I applied the mask to her face and it really was nearly an immediate response; her eyes opened wider and it was just apparent that it was effective", Burt told MNN. Burt placed the mask over Darcy's nose and mouth and, within just a few minutes, she became alert and began to feel better.

"It may have been only a "dog" to some, not a major disaster certainly, but a family member to us".

Drake scores his eighth No. 1 album on Billboard's chart with 'Scorpion'
According to executives, Drake could easily command a per-album advance of $15 million to $20 million if he signs to a major. It racked up 745.92 million USA online plays in its first week, the highest streaming debut for any artist ever.

In a letter to the airline posted on the Everyday Jumpseater Facebook page, Michelle explains that Darcy was pushing her head against the mesh part of the carrier and not lying down, despite Steven instructing her to.

He said he saw Darcy on Burt's lap "and I believe the dog passed out", he told GMA.

In a statement to ABC 7 in NY and other media outlets, JetBlue said they were happy their crew members went "above and beyond" to help the dog and that Burt's thank-you letter would be forwarded to higher-ups so the attendants can be recognized for their kindness.

JetBlue said in a statement to ABC News its crew "want to make sure everyone has a safe and comfortable fight, including those with four legs".
