Forever Home – First Meeting in a Hangar
Hulk was a sweet, adorable, trusting and loving year-old pittie pup, born blind, who was languishing in a Savannah, Georgia shelter. Victoria Lorio shared Dogs Are People, Too’s social media profile and plea for Hulk. Donna and Becky Bradford in Houston, Texas stepped up to adopt Hulk.
Plans were to fly Hulk on April 30, 2015, but weather (in the way of severe and widespread thunderstorms) forced a postponement of the transport by pilots for Pilots N Paws. The weather cooperated Saturday, May 7, 2015. Laura Briggs had arranged for Hulk to be sprung from the shelter the preceding day and fostered overnight by Carolyn Parrish. Bright and early, Carolyn delivered Hulk to Georgia pilot James Kleen for a flight to Fairhope, Alabama to connect with New Orleans, Louisiana pilot Owen Bordelon for a leg to Louisiana Regional Airport in Gonzalez, Louisiana. Wade Roberts, fellow pilot Andy Goodreau, and Andy’s friend Miriam, flew from N20223’s home base at Pearland Regional Airport & FBO to board Hulk for the final leg of his journey to a new home.
He spent the flight napping, with his head in Miriam’s lap.
Freedom flights to safety are always good, but there’s something of a little extra dimension when you fly a dog to his/her forever home, and the first meeting happens in your hangar.
