Blain: I would bring her to the Saturday flyouts, but I can't be certain that we would be eating outside.

LMPOWELL: She's a mix. We think she looks like a Brittany Spaniel, but others have said Australian Sheppard/Border Collie mix. Only her mother knows for sure. Regarding the RV-7A, she does fit perfectly in the baggage area with room to spare. She's nine years old and weighs 33lbs. Fun fact: She just recently learned to stick her head out of the window of my Miata. Her proud papa had to scramble to take a picture of her wonderous achievement:

Best I can do right now. Dude seemed really interested in climbing into the canoe with me. Unfortunately he passed a few years ago, so that backseat ride will never happen.



Fortunately our other girl is nuts about flying so I'm sure one day we'll have a photo of her serving as my RIO. For now she has to be content with boring spam cans.

Default Ziggy goes camping

Took our dog Ziggy camping in the RV. He was a bit apprehensive prior to takeoff.

Once in the air, he put on the Vans Grin just like always...

Seems pretty happy in flight.
Perhaps she is apprehensive during preflight in fear she'll be left behind.
Does she point out items during pre-flight?

Default Please give your dogs hearing protection

I notice most people flying with their dog have provided the dog with hearing protection. But some do not. There is a product called Mutt Muffs that is made for this purpose. Ever take your headset off in an RV at cruise? It is painfully loud. Dogs have hearing that is more sensitive than ours. Please be kind to your dogs and make sure they are equipped with hearing protection. Just like us, they will will suffer discomfort and hearing damage otherwise.

Default My new puppy Loki

On April 13th I flew from CYPK near Vancouver to McKenzie in northern British Columbia to pick up our new 8 wk old pyrenees-husky puppy. I put the puppy in a crate wrapped in foam and blankets to deaden the noise. He slept most of the 3 hour flight and all went well. Below is a picture of Loki in the RV-6

Since the flight I have ordered a set of 4 Paws Aviation ear muffs and hopefully the puppy and I can fly some more. In the meantime in celebration I flew the flightpath shown in a flightaware image below. I planned the flight in foreflight and then transferred it to my Dynon Skyview and just flew the path. Worked out good.

Here's another dog in airplane story. Guy picks up and gives his brand new puppy a ride in a [then] fresh off the factory assembly line F-14. Fast FWD to 1:56:30 for the dog part. Whole interview is worth the time, but focus on the dog part. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLreti98BLw

Watched the whole youtube interview of "Shoes" given in previous link. It's quite long but lots of great stories and fun to watch. He's picked up several puppies by airplane but the one in the milk crate in the F14 is the best story.
