If your dog still needs a ride, I'm in Pensacola, headed for eastern NC on Saturday afternoon. Stops in Birmingham and Charlotte area would be possible. I have the back seat of a Mooney (very little airplane) available, but have no crate, and it's almost impossible to get a full-sized crate in at all through its little door. (Not only that, I admit to some concern about fleas, possibly unruly or panicked dog, or airsickness in uncrated dog. Want to allay my concerns?) Not sure how best to give my contact information, but I have a cell phone with me. Its a.c. is 252, and the rest of the number is 339, followed by 0287. Feel free to give me a call if you haven't already found a ride.
