So, I am going to have a travel companion with me on SMD4, TATL and domestic – I know his luggage looks large for his size, but it is carry on. He is related to the fearless PD K9’s and has a badge and bulletproof vest to prove it. One of the founders of CoverYourK9.org (HQ in the SF Bay area) entrusted him to me and made a special request to photograph him at all of the ‘Do functions (a la what Ryan B did for his sis in ‘Up in the air’), and also in the cockpits, etc. of the various airplanes. They promised to post his adventures on a blog associated with Cover Your K9. I would like my fellow MP travelers to remind me to take the photos – I might get so caught up in activities that I forget.
