Sugar and K9
Last week Kim and I were taking a day trip to Lake Havasu to see some family, and connected that with another Freedom Flight. Sue Wiese connected us with a couple from Barstow, CA with a pair of small pups whose future home was in the Lake Havasu area. So we made a quick pit stop at Daggett/Barstow airport, picked up Sugar and K9. Both dogs were nervous, neither really travel well, but they were troopers for the 1 hour flight for us.
It was an emotional goodbye for the couple who had been fostering them, as they said, it’s hard not to get attached. Chris got a couple of pics with the pups and the plane before we headed out to Havasu, where the folks at Desert Skies Aviation got to give some love to the pups before they headed out to their new fur-ever home.
Kim and I both feel very lucky to be able to fly around to visit family and friends. When we can make those trips a Freedom Flight for some needy animals, it’s icing on the cake.
