As you may
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
Thanks for the pleasure of spending time with you Monday.
Say 'Hi' to UNO for me and give him a tummy rub.
