Doxy Scarlet was found as a stray in Houston and taken to the shelter. She was very thin and needed some intense TLC from Rescue the Animals rescue in Abilene.
I was scheduled to meet Ken and Susan in Temple to split the trip into two legs. As bad luck would have it, Ken got stuck in Detroit the day before the flight. Instead of calling out, he found a pilot, Xoaquin, to take his place.
Coordinator Vanessa and helper Kelley met me at Houston Executive (KTME). Not only are the facilities at Henriksen Jet Center really nice, but so are the desk staff and line crew. They parked me right at the front door.
On the way to Houston, I had a little extra cockpit noise than usual in my CQ1 in-the-ear headset. When I landed in Houston, I took a good look at the ear tip and decided it looked a little dirty. A new yellow foam ear tip took its place, and the flight to Temple was as quiet as I expect. After an uneventful flight, I met Xoaquin after a slight delay caused by MIA hangar keys. Scarlet and I enjoyed the green grass and seating area outside the FBO in temple.
With Xoaquin’s help, Scarlet made it to her rescue in Abilene, where she promptly had another well-needed meal. Dr. Bolt saw Scarlet right away on a Sunday afternoon. The Doxy got some shots to make her more comfortable, and napped away the afternoon in bliss.
