Yeah baby!!!
Skylar PnP rescue and resident RV builder / supervisor on the way home from KMPJ after a night of other animals sniffing her butt through the tent . She doesn't mind IFR in the crud, but does open one eye and lick my shoulder if I'm getting sloppy and off by 0.1degree. (The D-O-G that is!)





Funny story: Sometimes, Tanya uses one of the vertical band saws to chop up bones for the dog from the butcher. Skylar saw it in action ONCE. Now every time I turn on most machines, she comes running and sits under the machine. Her favorite hang out spot in the shop is under the old Bridgeport manual mill. Running or not. I guess it's soothing harmonics must equal dog bones. Hey, it feels similar to me too! Some of the other machines with 18K and 24K RPM spindles, ehhh, not so much .

Just a couple of weeks ago. A PnP rescue (scared and doesn't even know how to walk on a leash). This is how Tanya transports "unknowns", tied down to a baggage tie with enough lead to lick your ear, and "contained" in a mesh dog crate that they could break out of in an instant.



This dog was transported all the way across the country, from South Texas to a family in the North East I think. Many of them are coming out of their final day in a shelter.... Pilots are a motivated kind.

We flew a few pups last year. The pandemic kept mom extremely busy at work. This was a good way for me to get to fly while entertaining the kids and making the world a tiny bit better. The kids arenít always the most engaged passengers...

Arguing on the internet is like having a competition to see who can hit a brick wall the hardest. You may win, but you're still an idiot.

Default Dog in a hippo

Since this is a dogs in RVs thread I wonít post a picture of this big fella. He was much too large to get a ride in the RV-7, but he didnít seem to mind that his ride was in a hippo. I flew him from the Texas panhandle to a rescue in Colorado for Pilots n Paws.
The rescuer saves and finds homes for large breed dogs. Two days later she texted that he had stolen her heart and she would be his forever mom.
Oh, what the heck if Doug doesnít like it he can just take the post down.
