Uno and David Frei on their travels....    


As you may know, when Uno travels on Midwest in a seat, he gets a ticket just like every human.  On the way out of St Louis Monday afternoon, it finally happened:  the computer selected him for “additional screening.” (pat down, etc.).  So was I, but it was a little humorous (especially since we had plenty of time) and the TSA folks got a kick out of it, too.  They took a copy of his ticket and a lot of pictures.  Here are some shots that they sent me of Uno’s patdown and wand scan, and a copy of his ticket with the SSS designation indicating additional screening requirement …

excerpt from email message from the lucky TSA agent who spent some quality time with Uno:

It was a real pleasure meeting you and your traveling companion UNO Monday evening at the A Checkpoint at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.  What a great dog he is.  I wish I was in a position to get hold of one of his pups when that day comes, but that's just a pipe dream I'm afraid... I couldn't afford the ticket price!
I am attaching a few photos that we took that day.  As I may have mentioned, the flash was not working at all on the first photos I took and so the quality is poor.  I may send you another e-mail with a few more photos, but I don't have access to them at this time.  (They are still in the camera at the checkpoint.)
I hope you can use these.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you and/or UNO.
Thanks for the pleasure of spending time with you Monday.
Say 'Hi' to UNO for me and give him a tummy rub.
