The emails went out and I could not just move this one to the MAESSR folder. The wx forecast was looking good and Mary and I had a choice of getting some cleaning and yard work done or flying a rescue...after reading the email it had to be the rescue.
Who wants puppy kisses from a handsome black and white fella named Polo?
Mary and I were hooked, we wanted to transport this fella. I worked through some emails Thursday and the transport took shape. Another Springer passenger, Angel, was a potential rider if the ground transport could work. Vern agreed to pick up Angel in Chesapeake, VA (Hampton Road Executive Airport) and take him to Goochland, VA for Debbie. Once at Hampton Roads Executive (KPVG) we would pick up Polo and take him north with us back to Wilmington.

We said our goodbyes and headed back to the ramp, making the exchange for Polo. This little fella almost caused mission fail, no joke, we were really thinking about just taking him home. Polo was a bit scared with all the new sounds and surroundings. Mary escorted our little passenger into the terminal where everyone fussed over him, I saw that tail start to wag.
|Asleep as we cross over the bay Bridge tunnel|
Polo was curled up in Mary's lap for the first half hour then decided to be a big boy and venture to the rear area. I always remove the seats and provide a shipping blanket for our passengers to curl up on. Well this little fella found a small area behind the seats but in front of the wing spar and wiggled in. Cute, one problem, he was now doing the wiggle butt under my seat. I could feel his head under my seat as he crawled in to get comfy. Polo had his nose sticking out the front of my seat and his tail sticking out the back, he was settled and happy, who am I to make him move.
|Yep, in my path|
|Ducking under at 3000|
|Is this how I get out?????|
|My house, I feel safe|
