Late August 2011.
Virginia. Earthquakes. Hurricanes.
Madrid, Spain. Warm. Sunny.

It was an amazing journey when Sue Kindred, Siete (a 4-1/2 month old Labrador Retriever ), and I flew from Virginia to Siete's new home in Madrid, Spain. 

We made it through check-in and security at Dulles International Airport fairly quickly with Siete. She was a perfect lady, taking the hustle and bustle of a busy metropolitan airport in stride. When we boarded, our assigned seats were part of a four-seat configuration that we had to ourselves. That meant that Siete had a seat of her own, with Sue on one side and me on the other. She slept curled up throughout the 8+ hour flight without a whimper or whine or potty break. What a traveler! After landing in Madrid, we sailed through customs and met Blanca (Siete's new Mom and T1 diabetic) for the very first time.

What a privilege it was for Sue and me to deliver this life-saving puppy. The video below was taken a couple of days into our visit. In it, Blanca teaches Siete the training protocol for visiting the ATM.
