When the time came for Victoria Zajko and her Husband to get a dog they took a little trip to Dustin’s Angels dog Rescue in West Virginia. Now you may be thinking they just hopped in the car and drove down to the Dog shelter and picked up a puppy and that was that. Nope that is just the beginning of the story.
What makes this story a little more interesting is the fact that both Victoria and Hubby are pilots.To get the new addition to their family they flew down to West Virginia from Maryland in their doggy search. Rightly so they were a little bit apprehensive about flying back with a new dog as they were not sure how he would take to flying in a small plane. Well that was way back on New Years Eve 2012 and not only did they have nothing to worry about but “Turbo” (that’s the Dog) now has over 50 hours in the air and LOVES flying. In fact he love it so much Mom (Victoria) and her friend Kelly decided to write a children’s book. Not just a book but a new series all about Turbo’s flying adventure’s…
Turbo The Flying Dog by Kelly Kennedy and Victoria Zajko with Illustrations by Michelle Zajko
The first book in this series starts with the Dogs eye view of life in the kennel. How much these Dogs need and want a family. People come and go but still the poor guy sits as they walk out the door. But of course he finally gets to go home with a new family.It’s a great little story book that not only brings that importance of Animal rescue to the forefront.It also shows us from the dogs point of view how much they want a family. With the colorful illustrations by Michelle Zajko are excellent , telling the story too as she shows the different emotions of Turbo from his tilted head we’ve all seen dogs do as they wonder to the happy panting as he realizes he loves the plane.I think most kids that love dogs and even like the idea of flying will like this book . Maybe even if they’re not too sure about flying Turbo can show them it’s not so bad.
The best thing about this is that it’s a true story and it’s going to continue. Soon Turbo will be starring in book two with his Friend Olive (part schnauzer, part poodle)”Turbo learns to Fly”
