please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and refer to HUNTER TRANSPORT in the subject line.
I want to start by saying thank you to all my friends here for the overwhelming support and words of condolences and wisdom. Not going to lie, these past few weeks have been devastating for me. I'm still not quite right (although really never have been) things will never be the same around here without my Old Brown Hound. Horrible hole in my world.
Of all the transports I have done, this is the first time that I have ever requested help for me, and it is a bittersweet transport for me. It is also very difficult for me to ask.. this is an adoption to a forever home (me) from a private party that tried to do the right thing by a stray back in June.
Some background; this pup showed up as a stray on this woman's doorstep, emaciated and filthy mid June. They tried to find his owners and had no luck so she reached out for help on one of the facebook sites. Anyway, she 'friended' me, and followed advice on the breed, but just feels that she is not the right home for him. She loves him very much by the way.. but GSP's can be a tough breed for the uninitiated.
Anyway, she saw that my Old Brown Hound died and she emailed me that while she loves him; she would like to give him to me as she can't give him what he needs. I was astounded as well as touched. There are no monies being exchanged here.. it's just one family trying to do the right thing by the stray that they took in and love and this old hag that is trying to heal.
Not going to lie; it was a long few days here, but then a friend in rescue reminded me that there is no better way to honor my Wingmans memory than to help a hound in need. I would like to also believe that my Old Brown Hound perhaps knows that this pup that is currently digging to China, tearing up the furniture and ripping out the Mums, is exactly the kind of flunky that he was at that age. POTENTIAL ROUTE:

As this is a collective effort of multiple pilots, even if a leg has been 'spoken' for I would still need to connect the dots as such;
