Sid Finally Gets a Pair!

First, a little back story:

When we flew Southwest over the holiday, we neglected to get Sid his first pair of wings. This was unfortunate but strategic.  Our Sherpa bag was slightly larger than the official airline-approved model, and as we were stepping onto the plane an eagle-eyed flight attendent said, “That dog bag is too big.  Have you flown with it before?”  Without hesitation I said, “yes” – we’d made it onto the plane at that point, and there was no way we were turning back!  My involuntary lie, though, meant that we felt funny about asking for Sid’s official Southwest wings to commemorate his first flight.

Cut to last week, when Sid received ANOTHER package in the mail. (I think the pug gets more mail than us, these days!)

This one came from the amazing Suki, and Sid couldn’t wait to open it.  Inside was a photo and a note from Suki, along with a fancy lil’ box.

Inside the box?


Apparently Sid left a comment on Suki’s blog about how we bozos neglected to get him his wings, and Suki set out to correct this egregious error. She must have connections in high places, because they are OFFICIAL wings from Southwest Airlines!

Sid could barely contain his excitement!

Get this pug behind the wheel of a jumbo jet!  He’s earned his wings!

 Thank you, Suki, for such an amazing and thoughtful gift!

    Hey Sid, isn’t Suki the best?!? She is a good friend indeed. And I must say that those aviator pictures of you are just awesome. I would fly with you any day! *wink* *blush* I think Captain Sid has a ring to it!
    PS. My mom is still laughing at the title of this post!

    Seriously? Sid, did you get special cuteness powers? ’cause we’re bewitched by you. There isn’t a picture you post that we don’t love.

    How sweet of Suki to get you wings.

    Captain Sid!
    I’m so glad you like your wings! You deserve them, especially with all you carrier training you did.

    You look handsome in your aviator cap. Mochi was right, a Pug in uniform.

    Just think, when you go sledding, now that you have your wings, you will fly down the hill.
