Woman takes dog on subway without carrier. Cop gives woman a ticket. Woman argues with cop and spends the night in jail. Did I mention she’s now suing.

Here’s a refresher on traveling with your pooch on public transportation in New York, courtesy of Pet Travel.
- Small dogs in carriers are allowed on the Long Island Railroad, Long Island Bus and New York City Transit buses and subways.
- Small dogs in carriers or on a secure leash are allowed on the Metro-North Railroad.
- The pet carrier should be able to fit on your lap and should not occupy a seat.
- Dogs should not bother other passengers.
