Pilots 'N Paws

Our Monday Mention:

Sometimes a past memory takes off in my head through anything.  It could be looking at an item in a store or hearing something on the radio.  Well, it was an article provided by Michigan based M-Live such as the one I read a couple of weeks ago about Whitney, a deaf Dalmatian who was flown, or was the First Officer to arrive to her new owners in Bay City, Michigan via a service called 

A service where not only birds and humans fly, but also our felines, canines and everything between.  The Noah's Ark of our time.  Except it's not sailing on flood waters, only the heavens above.

The (transliterated) Hebrew word for dog is "Kelev".  Inside "Kelev" you will find the Hebrew word "Lev" which means "heart"  This shows that dogs are very loyal to their owners.  For us to give this back shows our essence to this world

Thank you for your taking the time to read this and please follow PILOTS N PAWS.
