NOV 16 2013
I HAVE ALWAYS FOUND USAIR VERY COOPERATIVE WHEN TRAVELING WITH A SERVICE DOG..  TO HAVE A 150 POUND GREAT DANE MOBILITY DOG ARRIVE AT THE CHECK IN ALWAYS CAUSES  A FLUTTER..THE GATE ATTENDANT ALWAYS REASSURES ME IT IS NOT A PROBLEM ( THEN SHE GETS ON HER INTERCOM AND I AM SURE  CALLS THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT AND SAYS "WAIT TIL YOU SEE WHAT YOU HAVE COMING AT YOU"  )

THE PART OF THIS ENTIRE DISCUSSION THAT IS MISSING FROM THE STORY OF THE "BLIND GUY GETS THROWN OFF A PLANE" IS  IF YOUR SERVICE DOG IS NOT PERFECTLY BEHAVED   YOU CAN BE THROWN OUT OF ANYWHERE...
THEN THERE IS A SECOND LAW OF THE AIRWAYS.... IF A PASSENGER  IS  CONFRONTATIONAL,   THEY CAN BE PUSHED OUT THE DOOR TOO. WHETHER OR NOT THEY HAVE A DOG WITH THEM.  SO THERE ARE PARTS MISSING FROM THE STORY.

THE  SERVICE DOG INDUSTRY IS ENTIRELY TOO LAX  AT LETTING THE GENERAL PUBLIC KNOW...   PUBLIC ACCESS IS NOT A FREE RIDE.  YOU MUST BEHAVE - AND SO MUST YOUR DOG.  I TRY AND MAKE THAT CLEAR TO ANYONE GETTING ONE OF OUR DOGS-   THAT ADA LAW HAS A SECOND PART WHICH DOES NOT GET ENOUGH PRESS...

SINCE USAIR  ---IN THEIR PUPPIES IN FLIGHT PROGRAM---- WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SAFE ( AND FREE) DELIVERY OF SCARLOTT AND WALTER FROM DENMARK TO BOSTON  WE NEED TO HELP THEM.-- PLEASE POST POSITIVE THINGS FOR THEM -  THEY AREE BEING  MURDERED IN THE PRESS... AND I FOR ONE, HAVE HAD ONLY THE BEST SERVICE FROM USAIR WHEN TRAVELING WITH A SERVICE DOG.
  TIME TO SHOW OUR PINK ENVELOPE STYLE CAMPAIGN TACTICS 
 HERE IS WHAT THEIR LETTER ASKS ME  TO DO...

Please post your positive experiences with US Airways and Puppies in Flight Program on our Facebook page at facebook.com/USAirways and on Twitter via @USAirways.  Your help in showcasing our Puppies In Flight program and dedicated team would be extremely helpful.

SO... MENTION SDP... AND HOW WE HAVE HAD ONLY THE BEST OF EXPERIENCES WITH USAIR-- UNLESS YOU ARE OF A DIFFERENT OPINION...   THEY HAVE BEEN GREAT TO US.

I HAVE ASKED WILLIAM HUBER IF I COULD OFFER THEM THE SHOT OF SCARLOTT AND THE COFFEE POT( JANUARY PHOTO)  FOR USE DOWN THE ROAD IF THEY SEE FIT..  (EVEN IF THEY WOULD HOLD THE CUP IN THE AISLE TO POUR....)

PUPPY CAMERA NEWS

THE PUPS WILL BE OFF CAMERA  IN GROUPS TODAY AS THEY PRACTICE THEIR SKILLS AT OUTDOOR POOPING.-  WE CAN NOT REACH OUT THERE WITH THE CAMERA  SO BEAR WITH  US.

EXPLORE SENT US ANOTHER CAMERA TO SET OUTSIDE THE T TENT- WHICH WILL GIVE EVERYONE NEARLY A 100% VIEW OF THE FARM..  -- CERTAINLY THE DOOR TO THE TEEPEE WILL BE VISIBLE FROM THE NEW CAMERA.

DONT KNOCK THE TEEPEE... YESTERDAQY  I WAS TOD WE HAD A HIGHSCHOOL GROUP  COMING FOR  A VISIT TO LEARN ABOUT  OUR DOGS... NOBODY TOLE ME IT WAS 8 KIDS IN WHEELCHAIRS-- NOT JUST WHEELCHAIRS  BUT THE REALLY FANCY KIND WITH COMUPTER SCREENS FOR TALKING...  THE ONLY PLACE  WE COULD GET THEM OUT OF THE WEATHER WAS.... MY FRIEND... THE TEEPEE-- SO PAUL STARTED A FIRE IN THERE AND WE HAD A LOVELY TIME ANSWERING QUESTIONS -- WE HAD TO MOVE THE STUMPS WHICH WERE OUR USUAL SEATS- TO MAKE ROOM FOR THOSE CHAIRS.  BUT THE FIRE WAS LOVELY AND WARM...

I HAVE DECIDED NOT TO TAKE IT DOWN FOR THE WINTER...  I AM 76  - DO YOUR MATH  - THAT CANVAS  WOULD LAST FOR 15 YEARS IF WE TAKE IT DOWN  IN THE WINTER...-- OR HALF THAT IF NOT...  SO  LETS HOPE THE FUN FUND JAR IS STILL OPERATIONAL 7 YEARS FROM NOW.,.... IF NEEDED.

  1. HI, CARLENE - GLAD YOU POSTED THAT ENLIGHTENING AND POSITIVE INFORMATION ABOUT US AIR. I DO NOT FLY, BUT WILL SEND US AIR A LETTER THANKING THEM FOR THEIR PUPPIES-IN-FLIGHT PROGRAM. I CAN SEE THEY SURE HAVE BEEN GOOD TO SDP. AS A RULE OF THUMB, MAYBE WE CAMERA PEEPS SHOULD REFRAIN FROM POSTING NEWS STORIES JUST GENERALLY ON THE SDP WEBSITE, AS WE WERE NOT THERE WHEN THE EVENT TOOK PLACE, AND THUS DO NOT HAVE THE COMPLETE STORY. SINCE THESE STORIES ARE ALREADY IN THE NEWSPAPERS AND ON THE INTERNET, I DON'T THINK WE NEED TO REPOST THE INFO HERE ON THE SDP WEBSITE AT THE RISK OF INADVERTENTLY MAKING SDP LOOK BAD, OR OF HURTING SDP IN SOME WAY. JUST A THOUGHT, AND THANKS AGAIN FOR POSTING THE POSITIVE INFORMATION ABOUT US AIR. I’LL PUT A LETTER IN THE MAIL TO THEM ON MONDAY, WITH A COPY TO YOU. ; )
