Geoff’s First PnP Flight
Geoff Combs becomes a ‘buddy’ for PnP…
My wife finally got me to sign up for Pilot N Paws. On April 6th, we flew our first passenger. His name was Buddy, a 6 year old Aussie shepard who was turned into a kill shelter by his owners. He was 90% blind at birth, and the owners did not know this. He was a very sick dog when turned in but was nursed back to health, and a new home was found.
We picked him up in Ravenswood, WV from another pilot (Paul) who fly’s many rescues. When we got there, Buddy was sitting on Paul’s lap on a picnic table just enjoying the great weather. We loaded him up, and off we went to KCFJ Crawfordsville, IN. Buddy did great and finally fell asleep. We had about 1hr 20 min in the air, and when we arrived his new family was waiting. We unloaded Buddy, and he seemed right at home.
This was a very rewarding trip for us to be able to help this wonderful dog. We got an update last week that Buddy is doing great.
