TRANSPORT COMPLETED TODAY! (8/12/09) A huge thank you to Eddy Huffman and Veterinarian Heidi Jahn of Racine, Wisconsin. Eddy and Heidi flew round trip today and Furbie is now in Milwaukee with Playing Again Sams Samoyed Rescue (PAS) of Milwaukee. We are pretty sure that Furbie has a new home already. In honor of his pilot, Furbie will be renamed Eddie. This was also Eddy's first mission for Pilots N Paws. A job well done, Eddy!! The morning started out with some fog, so Eddy's departure was delayed, but when the fog lifted, he and Heidi were on their way. Per Eddy, Furbie was a great flyer and eagerly jumped into his plane and went into the crate and was very quiet and peaceful the whole trip. At one point, Eddy asked Heidi what "he was doing" and she replied, "I think he's reading a book"! He also sat and looked out the window for a while. He was a natural flyer! I can't thank you enough for helping to save this beautiful boy's life and a big thank you to Maria with PAS for taking him into your rescue. You are all Angels! Below are photos of Furbie. He had been shaved a couple of weeks ago, due to having been neglected by his previous owner and was extremely matted. Let's all keep paws crossed that his coat grows back in by the time the snow falls.
Big Hug to all Involved.......Eddy and Heidi, Maria and Scott (from PAS), Mike (the Warden in Ottawa) and Dina (Pet Pals Rescue) in Ohio, and of course, this great website, that without, this probably would not have happened for Furbie.
