Blue’s New Buddies
Blue, a 5-year-old pit bull, found some new buddies in the form of a two-pilot tag team of Roxanne and Dan. They moved Blue from Lompoc, CA to his temporary home in Cottage Grove, OR.
Roxanne began they day in the Sacramento area and made it down to Lompoc around 9:15 am to meet Scott, Blue’s owner. Scott had lost his home, and since November 2011 he has been moving Blue from rescue to rescue, trying to find a safe place for him.
From Lompoc, Roxanned headed north to Redding, CA, where she met Dan, the second pilot in the relay. He had flown down from Aurora, OR. They transferred Blue to Dan’s plane, an he finished the transport to Cottage Grove, OR, where Blue would live with Scott’s brother, Eric. Scott is hopeful that he will be able to see Blue before the end of the year.
The flight and relay were very uneventful. Blue slept nearly the entire way and was such a sweetheart throughout the whole process. He is finally in a safer, more secure location.
