|Flying eye dog?
This is a true story - one of the best in a long time . . .
A friend was flying from San Francisco to Los Angeles.
Unexpectedly, the plane stopped in Sacramento on the way. The flight attendant explained
that there would be a delay, and if we wanted to get off the aircraft, we would reboard in
30 minutes. Everybody got off the plane except one gentleman who was blind. I noticed him,
as I walked by and could tell he had flown before because his seeing eye dog lay quietly
underneath the seats in front of him throughout the entire flight. I could also tell he
had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached him and calling him by
name, said, "Keith, we're in Sacramento for almost an hour.
Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?"
Keith replied, "No thanks, but maybe my dog would
like to stretch his legs."
Picture this..... all the people in the gate area came
to a complete standstill, they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with the
Seeing Eye dog! The pilot was even wearing sunglasses.
They not only tried to change planes, they also were
trying to change airlines.
