Tips and Tricks about traveling with your dog guide from a million mile 
frequent flyer. Mike May with dog 5, Miguel, from the Seeing Eye

Mike May has traveled to over 30 countries since 1973 accompanied to most by a 
Seeing Eye dog. These include places as diverse as Ghana, Yugoslavia and 
Brazil. Mike's dog Rickie guided him to the famous Inca ruins of Machu Pichu 
and beyond. Miguel has met President Obama twice. Mike May has funny and 
frustrating stories about navigating the airways and highways around the world 
as well as the US where he travels over 100,000 miles annually. He was even 
asked to be on the reality show, the Amazing Race, which would have really 
taxed his travel ingenuity.

Mike says, "It is all about work arounds, using every alternative tool and 
technique available not to mention a major reserve of patience."
