MY DAY: The final trip together

I received a “photograph reminder” on Facebook and it was from five years ago when I took my dog, Flyer, on our final trip, together.

Flyer was dying and since we’d traveled extensively for twelve years, I decided to take one final trip with the dear girl.

We ended up at St. Joseph Cemetery in the hills of Butler County where my fourth-great-grandparents are buried.

From there we moved on over to Oxford and The grounds of Miami University. We walked through the gardens and sat by the pond, snuggling and enjoying these last few moments.

Flyer was tired, weak, ready for eternal sleep, but she was not about to allow anything to come between our time together.

A handful of Flyer’s cremains were later added to the pond.
