Tally the Aviation Enthusiast

tally_barney.jpgI thought I would share a photo of my favorite new aviation enthusiast TallyDog. She is seen here playing with her new favorite toy, a plush bi-plane, which we have named "Barney the Barnstormer".

Tally is my six month old Golden Retriever puppy. She is named after my favorite little town in Alaska, Talkeetna. Talkeetna is home of a great general aviation airstrip and Talkeetna Air Taxi which offers amazing site seeing flights of Denali is based there. Supposedly Talkeetna that inspired the fictitious town of Cicely from Northern Exposure.

I am not sure if I will push aviation further on her and get her in a plane anytime soon. I have always kind laughed in the pilot catalogs with those headsets made specifically to protect a dogs ears like Mutt Muffs.

Well, you're halfway to putting Tally in a plane if you're already posting her pictures on your aviation blog. At least it's not a cat. ;)

Well, let's just see what Tally's mom has to say about putting her in a plane! :)

Sure you can train your dog to fly. Here's one example of a truly flying dog:


Funny, but not safe or recommendable...

Lennart - Thanks for the video. That is hilarious though also disturbing.

I also have a flying golden retreiver. He flies in our DA-40, which if you're @ WCF, its N810DS.

great plane, check it out if you haven't already.

anyway, our golden has recently gotten ancy in the plane- ive tried to harness him into a seat belt, tried letting him just lay in the back...

I've thought about the dog head sets, casue it can be loud with out head sets- any suggestions on how to get him back to enjoying flight???
