Dick, thanks for the article in April’s issue about flying with the special dogs in your life. This past year we purchased a TBM and have enjoyed flying all over the country, both for business and family fun, but until recently, we didn’t include our dog, Talbot. At the urging of a friend who flies everywhere with two dogs we decided to take Talbot with us to the West Coast. Turns out Talbot loves to fly, and it makes the trip more enjoyable because the whole family is together. Talbot is now a regular on the dog beach of Carmel. I have been flying for 27 years, and sometimes we forget how much fun flying can be. Bring along a dog and you will always have a smile.
