On February 23, 2016 our beloved dog Dude crossed the Rainbow Bridge. If you watch our flight videos, it’s his barking you hear in the intro. He joined our family as a puppy, 14 years ago and brought unconditional joy, love, and devotion into our lives. Oh yes, he also brought some unwanted rolling in badger poo into our lives as well. That badger poo really stinks and can’t be forgotten.

I’m finally able to share the news we are back in the air. Nobody is happier than we are.

The new autopilot installation took longer than expected but the primary guy who was responsible for the installation, lost his father during the process. It’s hard to get upset over the fact the guys father passed away. (more…)

I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with two people in Wilson, North Carolina over lunch. These two women would probably be the first people to object to me calling them heroes, but that is what they are, like it or not.

Nearly every single day in America a volunteer pilot is helping someone in some way to do good things. These volunteer pilots serve in a number of capacities, from flying patients to much needed medical care, to flying dogs from certain death in kill shelters or from animal rescues.

It takes a village to save a dog. So many play an important role.

Before you read the following post there are three points I want to make clear.

  1. Injustice against people or animals, infuriates me. Especially when it impacts the many and good people involved in all phases of animal rescue.
  2. I used examples in this post that involved Pilot.dog but there are others who have told me similar stories. Rather than put them in the spotlight, I’m willing to take the heat for speaking up about these issues, so I used my own well documented example.
  3. Pilots N Paws should be acknowledged and thanked for the service they state they provide. As they say, “Pilots N Paws is only a meeting place for rescue flights.” For that service, I applaud them.

Recently I wrote about a disturbing conversation I had after getting a telephone call from Pilots N Paws. You can read the story here.
