Nope, me either!

Merle went on vacation to Ocracoke Island, NC last week.  He flew in a little airplane with his “peeps”.  He seemed to be enjoying the view!

    OK – I have a fear of heights! Apparently, Merle does not have that problem… what a brave boy he is! I am sure he had fun on his vacation too… It will be some time before we see a sheltie fly again! Safe travels.

      Usually he just lays down in the back on the luggage, but we had LOT of luggage, so he watched over my shoulder the whole flight.

    What a beautiful picture of your beautiful boy and I love just the hint of his silhouette on the window. Merle looks to be enjoying himself and per Sheltie S.O.P.’s, is taking it all in and not missing one thing . . . and we know he is happy about flying first class instead of in cargo. I’m sure a good time was had by all in NC.

      He does look a “little” timid, but happy. He’s a great flying buddy. We’re going to get him some “mutt muffs” to protect his ears from the noise.

    That is the most awesome thing I have seen. How fun. I wonder how badly Merle wanted to stick his head out the window. ;)

      I wondered the same thing, Cheryl! There’s an air vent near my knee that was blowing toward him. We did a Pilots N Paws rescue a few months ago and I brought one of the dogs back on my lap. He just kept his nose on that vent the whole flight!
