It would depend on what country you are going to. Some have quarantine laws that make it almost impossible to bring a pet there short term. If that is NOT the case and you can bring your pet freely, I'd say a small dog. Just choose an airline that allows pets in the cabin and choose a dog small enough to fit into a carrier that will fit under the seat in front of you. You'd have to have a health certificazte, but as long as vaccines are kept UTD thats no big deal either.

If you get another dog, get one that is really laid back and just goes with the punches. You need a dog that won't mind being in a small crate for a long period. I can't say there's a breed perfect for this but I do suggest going to a shelter (or petfinder) and asking about dogs that would be great with traveling. My dog loves to travel but it's always by car.
