Ryan Abbey and some of his passengers after landing at Searcy, AR. Looks like a fun bunch of pups!! Not enough room for any crates. The pups just found there own spot for the flight.

The two flights to save the pups went very well. Ryan had a little fog in the Rockwall area but it burned off and he was able to land for the pick up. It is a long flight from Dallas to Searcy, AR in an Ercoupe. Actually, since Ryan lives in Searcy, it was a round trip from Searcy, AR to Rockwall, TX and back to Searcy, AR.

My flight with the pups to Columbia, TN was a non- event.

Thanks to:
Mary Rogers and Melinda of Russell Rescue – Texas base and Tennessee base.
Thanks for saving the lives of these cute small dogs.

Job well done by all,
Jim Carney
