JetBlue flight crew uses oxygen mask to save dog

ORLANDO, FL (CNN) -- A Massachusetts couple is crediting two JetBlue flight attendants for saving their dog's life. 

Michele Burt was traveling with her husband and three dogs from their vacation home near Orlando back to their primary home in Westminster, Massachusetts. 

On the flight, their 3-year-old French bulldog "Darcy" started showing signs of distress. 

Burt says Darcy’s tongue and gums were blue and she was panting frantically. 

Flight attendants Renaud Spencer and Diane Asher brought ice bags to help her cool down. 

Then Spencer brought an oxygen tank with a mask Darcy could breathe through. 

Burt says the pup rebounded in just a few minutes and was fine for the rest of the flight. 

She wrote a letter to JetBlue thanking the company for helping keep Darcy healthy. 

Spencer may have known what to do because he is also papa to a Frenchie named Penelope.
