I love spring/flying predicament... help!!!

I got a job in Richmond, British Columbia for the summer,its working at a huge barn taking care of 7 highly bred and expensive warmbloods. They said I can take my dogs and even bring my horse if I wanted. Unfortunately, its just way too expensive to bring my horse up for just four months (2400$ two way approximately) so I am going to leave her back in Manitoba and have someone ride her while I'm gone.

However, I am definitely taking my dogs.

Here is the predicament I am in. I can only bring ONE dog with me in the cabin when I fly to BC, but I have two. Only ONE of them is small enough to go in the cabin....Amelie...as she is only 14.5lbs. Ninja is a hefty 25lbs of muscle and is too tall and too heavy to go in the cabin. I spoke to the airline and they assure me he will be ok in cargo. I just feel really really really bad putting him in cargo and taking Amelie on the plane with me. The airline told me that, if I wanted, being that the dogs are from the same household, that I could put them together in the same kennel, as I'm super worried about Ninja stressing out all by himself. Amelie has flown with me in the cabin many times before, this is Ninja's first time flying since he flew to winnipeg MB from boston MA when he was a 10 week old puppy.

When at home, my dogs are both kennel trained. They each have their own kennel, yet they prefer to be together in one kennel. So I figured I could put both together in the one kennel and put them in cargo. But I feel SOOO BAD doing this. I hate letting them out of my sight, and I've heard such horror stories about cargo. I also can't leave them behind... what should I do??? HELP!

thanks guys...

Remember that photo-shoot the dogs did for PetSecure Insurance company? Well they took about 400 pictures and I got TEN photos...TEN!!!! Can you believe it? They put TEN photos on a disk, I was so dissapointed. Some of them aren't even that great. I was expecting at least a hundred photos since they spent hours taking pictures of the dogs, especially Ninja. What a dissapointment that was.

Anyway here are the TEN pictures they took.... Amelie has a squinty eye because she poked her eyeball with her toy, don't worry she is ok now.
