High Flying Huskies

by Valerie Barker


This morning we went for our first airplane ride. Mom sewed us some white scarves so we would look like ace pilots. Here's our picture with Mom by the airplane.It was pancake breakfast day at the airport, so there were a lot of people there. We were really excited to say hi to everyone. We walked around for a little bit and then it was time to go fly.

I really liked it when we were on the ground and the propeller was turning. I stuck my head out and let my tongue flap in the breeze. We taxiied past all of the people eating pancakes and waved our tongues at them. Ha, ha!Once we got airborne, it was a little noisy. Kat kept looking out the window. She couldn't believe how all of the swimming pools in backyards looked like puddles!
Here's a cute picture of yours truly.
We flew around for about 30 minutes, then we went back to the airport. Mom and Dad didn't want us to get too hot since there isn't air conditioning in the plane. Dad pointed our air vents towards us, but it was still a little hot. After we landed and jumped out of the plane, Mom took us over to the hose by the airport building and let us drink from the hose. That was pretty fun. We tried to look cute and get some pancakes from the people that were still there, but Mom wouldn't let us have any. Everyone was really impressed with us, being flying dogs and all.

Mom says we'll go flying again sometime. I asked her if we could leave the window open in the air, but she said no. I don't know what she's worried about. It's not like I would try to jump out without a parachute! I don't even think I could fit through the window.
