Switzerland
Lucy and I just arrived in Zurich for our flight to Los Angeles. We're trying to find some discreet spot to pee on the floor...maybe drop a few Tootsie Roll-sized poops. (Thanks, I used the ladies room, but there's no access for doggies to outdoors here like there is in transfer areas at Dulles and other airports. Oops!)

More blog items tomorrow!

UPDATE: Lucy is so polite. I put down a newspaper for her on the floor in the bathroom, and then, in a dark corner, and she refused to go. She waited all the way to Los Angeles. 11 hours!

Naturally, there was a screaming baby on our flight -- actually, scratch that, make that a screaming 5-year-old. Unshutuppable for about 10 minutes at the end of the flight. (I'm sorry, but at what age is this tantrum nonsense supposed to end?)

Compare her behavior with Lucy's: She hid on my lap, completely quiet, completely still, under my shawl, for much of the 11 hours. What's pretty wild is that Lucy seems to "get it" -- to know when she has to be quiet and hide. She's actually quite the "conspiratrice," I told the very impressed French lady next to me on the plane, thanks to American health regulations forbidding dogs in restaurants...which haven't stopped Lucy from going to them...not even once!
