Here is a pictures we took of Bill with Heide arriving at St. Clair for her flight home. She seemed to know she was going home. She was eager to climb into the airplane and was quiet and sleep most of the way. When we landed in Emporia, Kansas we were a few minutes ahead of Mike's arrival. When Mike landed, Heide watchd him taxi all the way to his parking spot. When time to load up for the last leg of her flight home, she walked calmly to the plane, stepped on the foot step and onto the wing like she has done it before.

Here are some pictures from the second leg of Heidi's flight from Emporia Kansas to the Denver area. As mentioned, she acted as if she'd been flying all of her life. Heidi is a very sweet dog and I'm glad to have helped her find her way home.
