We'd heard about a dog whose owner died, and relatives had brought him to the shelter. "I'd adopt this dog in a nanosecond," Translyvania shelter adoption manager Joleen Brannigan told me. She sent a few pics.
Oreo's mate had been adopted but he was lingering, it was months already and he'd been passed by. Just another hound on the discard list. So we took a chance, a possible foster-to-adopt. Today Oreo flew on a sleek little Piper from Asheville to his new home in Cary.
Here he says a warm goodbye to Joleen.
Boards the Piper Archer:

And Oreo's in flight, clear weather, great visibility.
A smooth landing
And a paw shake hello to his new family. It was, for all, love at first sight.
