This morning, a batch of Facebook photos from 2009 memories showed up on my feed. They were photos taken on the back deck with my cat, Logan (1994-2011), and my dog, Flyer (2000-2013).

These were two incredible pets and I do still miss them. Chief and Navi arrived as 10 week old puppies in February 2011 and got to know Logan for about 9 months and Flyer for 3 years.

Now, I have four senior dogs. Chief will be 12 in November; Erma is now 13 and will turn 14 next July; and The Sisters, Bailey and Harrigan, will turn 9 this next Tuesday, October 25th. They are aging. Fast.

Chief struggles with his hips and joints and getting to his feet is a struggle. His devotion to me, and The Pack, is unwavering. Erma appears healthy but her heart condition is always hanging hauntingly in the background. The Sisters, while appearing youthful, are greying in the face.

Today, thanks to Facebook memories surfacing, I am remembering with great fondness, Logan and Flyer, my first two pets of my adult years.

Make it a great day!

PHOTOS: Logan and Flyer. The last photo of Flyer was taken at Wilbur Wright’s grave one month before she passed.
