This is one of the most inspirational books I have read in ages. For the most part, I don't read memoirs about dogs anymore as they make me so sad, but this is just the opposite. Each story of a dog or dogs and the journey to a new and forever home was provided by a pilot, who owns their own aircraft. This in essence, if the story of how Pilots n Paws came about and the services it provides along with lots of great pictures. If you are looking for a great book to read or give as a gift, I can't think of one better than Dog is my CoPilot. I loved it!!!

THIS BOOK IS SO ENLIGHTENING REGARDING AN ORGANIZATION THAT DOES SO MUCH GOOD FOR ALL ANIMALS AND DOES NOT TAKE DONATIONS!!! YOU WOULD NOT HAVE TO BE AN ANIMAL LOVER TO FULLY ENJOY THEIR GOOD WORK AND THIS BOOK!

This is a great book for any person that loves animals or flying!! It tells of the great efforts that some people go to rescuing animals (dogs in particular) and finding them homes. Pilots 'n Paws is a fantastic organization and makes me wish I was a pilot.

This is a book that is a must read for anyone that needs a reminder that people can still be compassionate and caring. A well put together compilation of stories shared by volunteer pilots doing what they love to do.. fly and showing everyone at the same time, that they can do what they love to do and save animals in need at the same time. Beautiful photos too, both on the ground and in the air Left me laughing and happy tears. Thank you Patrick Regan for showing us how hard rescues and pilots work everyday.

I really enjoyed this book! I've helped with transports when Pilots N Paws were used. I enjoyed learning how the organization was started and I loved the rescue stories.
