Off Off and Away

Once again, the last week with the pups was crazy, and I missed out getting a last set of puppy pics for the blog.  This litter was shared between multiple programs.

London aka Teddy and Olympia joined ICAN
Champ aka Stark joined Paws'itive Teams in San Diego www.pawsteams.org
Flame aka Victory "Tory" and Summer joined Pawsitive Perspectives Assistance Dogs in MN www.pawpads.org
Butterfly aka Bella joined Paws With Purpose in KY www.pawswithpurpose.org
Wishing all the pupsters much success in whatever role best suits their talents. 

Many thanks once again to Nancy for her many hours of puppy care.  Appreciative thanks to the US Airways Puppies in Flight volunteers who lovingly escorted Champ, Flame and Summer to their respective programs.  And to Bridget for all the wonderful puppies she has produced for programs across the country - she has been an exceptional mama dog and has earned her retirement from raising puppies.  Bridget's breeder caretaker/soon to be new owner reports that Bridget was eager to get a late start on the school year, resuming her role as the beloved Bedford, IN reading therapy dog. 

Puppies in Flight

Puppies In Flight is a partnership between US Airways and Assistance Dogs International (ADI), which trains and places assistance dogs around the world. US Airways employees volunteer their time and utilize travel benefits to transport and familiarize assistance dogs in training with aircraft and air travel in preparation for future flights with their disabled partners. Over the past 10 years, US Airways employees have participated in transports everywhere from California to Croatia.
