Mabel's Adventures Down South

Mabel got to take a plane trip for the first time in seven years over the holiday. I've posted these to Facebook throughout the trip but thought I should share them here thanks to my lack of any blog fodder. Hope you enjoy.

I adore the look on the Lou's face when she realized this strange car was suddenly up in the air. She turned to me and her face simply said, "Mom, that's just WRONG!"  She did whine a bit over the ocean and then settled down for a long nap. When she woke up, she started barking at the wing! We rode for quite a bit with the shades down.

My brother - in - law picked us up. I snapped a pic of Mabel with her special way of sitting- booty on the seat; paws on the floor.  I just love this as I've never had a dog sit like this. When we flew home there was no one in the middle seat on the plane and Mabel sat like this for a few hours!

The first day at Granny's was a warm and toasty 74! Mabel was jet lagged and in heaven! Lots of ham and a good sunbake! Who could ask for anything more?!?

I took lots of shots of Mabel and her cousin Bailey.

After a few days, Mabel got protective of Granny's yard. She's on squirrel patrol here.

Every night, Mabel would tuck her Granny in bed. She did this extra early on Christmas Eve... I think she knew Santa was close!

Miss Lou had a really good trip and she certainly kept my nerves much calmer being with me.

Looks like you had a good trip. How did you fly with Mable Lou in the cabin?

What a great trip. I have never been on a plane. I don't know what I would think of it. It is cool that you got to sit with your MOM. My MOM could not bear to think of me in the belly of a big old plane, so thus she has never taken me on a plane. Thanks fo rsharing your photos.

I love these pictures of Mabel! And my question is the same as harrispen's: why was Mabel allowed to fly with you in the cabin? That's so much better for both of you than putting her in cargo.

I'm also curious how Mabel was able to fly with you. She's so sweet and photogenic. And I had to laugh because Cheyenne sits the same way in the back seat of my car, sitting on the seat with her two front legs standing on the floor. Silly puppies! :-)
