We’ve had another successful dog rescue.
Long story short - we were in the Nashville area and went to pick up what was originally going to be one dog from the Lebanon Animal Control – of course we left with five.
But, I’m never gunna go to the housing facility again on a rescue. I know how many we left behind and what their chances are. And some of those dogs were really sweet. But there is a finite number of dogs we can fit into our airplane and still have a safe flight for both humans and animals.
Here we are leaving the Lebanon facility with our rental car that quickly became very covered with dog hair:
And when we arrived at John C. Tune airport (JWN) there was a plethora of 8-week old Catahoula Leopard Dog puppies waiting for us.

This girl had serious Alpha Female issues – so she had to be kept away from all the other dogs:
I flat out love LOVE this Coonhound! And he doesn’t have a Foster Family or a Forever Family yet – so he came home with us. And absolutely needs a family. If you can give him love, please contact us!
And this Shepherd mix left our hangar with his Forever Family:
This Hinez 57 will go with Plumbers for Puppies to find a Forever Family:
Merry Christmas to all and God Bless.
