Happy St. Patrick's Day, Hendrix. United Airlines accidentally shipped the pooch from Newark to Ireland this week, instead of his home destination of Phoenix, reports CNN via local affiliate KNXV. After the English springer spaniel touched down in Eire, he got to stretch his legs before being sent back in the other direction, making for about 24 hours cooped up in a plane's cargo hold.
