He's the most peripatetic of pets, a Maltese poodle with a Hub connection who is now being lionized --- if it's possible for a poodle named Moose to be lionized --- as the poster dog of a new JetBlue Twitter promotion that aims to help an animal welfare foundation.

According to JetBlue, Moose was the airline's most traveled pet in 2010, logging many flights between Buffalo and Boston. Moose's owner Jamie Griebner is originally from Buffalo and is now a law student at Suffolk University, JetBlue said.

To highlight the joys of having a pet like Moose, JetBlue said it has pledged to donate $2 to the Millan Foundation for every pet photo uploaded to Twitter between May 4 and May 18 using the hashtag #JetPaws. (JetBlue has a long-standing program called JetPaws, which seeks to help customers who want to travel with their pets.)

As for the photo contest, the airline's 13,000 crew members will vote on their favorite photo, and the winner get will a two-night, three-day vacation package to the Hotel Palomar Los Angeles, a hospitality venue that has been cited for its pet friendliness, JetBlue said.
