Meet Ashlyn, an adorable senior dog who was residing at a shelter in North Carolina.

Unfortunately, Ashley was feeling a bit down lately and also struggled with a severe illness. The four-footer was diagnosed with numerous cancerous tumors directly underneath her skin, which greatly affected her personality and energy.

Veterinarians gave Ashley just a couple more weeks to live, but she slowly started regaining her smile thanks to the efforts of the New England Humane Society.

The animal organization had found a perfect and loving family where Ashley could spend the rest of her life with.

However, that new home was located more than four hundred miles away from her current location. With no means to get there, pilot and owner of Flying Fur Animal Rescue Paul Steklenski decided to step in.

Paul decided that he’d fly Ashley all the way to her new family, and it was a trip that the pup will never forget.

The pictures of the pilot with his loyal four-footer copilot are really something you have to see for yourself. Not only for the sheer awesomeness of a dog in a plane but also because you can clearly see Ashley is having the time of her life.

It took her a little while to get used to the air, but the pup definitely enjoyed her trip.

“She started off a little bit distant,” Paul said to The Dodo. “Then she would kind open up a bit, and she got closer.”

Luckily, the kind pilot had a neat trick to help Ashley feel more at ease: dog biscuits.
