Logan, My special little boy.. Thanksgiving 2011
by Kelly Alexaitis
Logan, who was a gift given to us by god, was the sweetest living thing I ever knew. I grew up with him since I was in 6th grade and now I am a senior in college. When I went home a on November 4th he was fine, I threw the tennis ball to him outside, he laid in the grass while my dad and I washed the cars and most of all, when I opened the garage door like always, his cute tilted head was there waiting for me like always. When I came home for Thanksgiving last weekend, he was fine. Thursday he started showing weird symptoms and we knew something was wrong, by Friday, he hadn't eaten in 3 days or drank water and Saturday when I came back from the mall with my mom he, it was the first time he didn't get up to greet us. After I went to lunch that day, I knew it was the last time that I would ever see him. On Sunday, My parents felt it was best to put him to sleep. At first mad with the decision, I then understood because he had not eaten in days or drank water and had not gone to the bathroom, he was slowly dying within and feeling more pain than I could ever know. I never expected him to leave us so early, but he had a great life and had a wonderful family to live with. Now I am completely satisfied with my parents decision and I would have done the same thing. I could never imagine having such an amazing being living in such pain. The death of our beloved dog Logan has made this last week difficult and we will never forget him. He was a truly amazing dog. Such a good, genuine soul. A companion to my dad, mother, sister and myself. He will always remain a huge piece of all our hearts and never be forgotten. Logan, we love you and will always miss you. There is not a doubt in my mind that you were my best pet I have ever had. You were so special and were truly a gift from god. I will never forget you, and you will never be replaceable. You touched us all in more ways than one. We miss you endlessly and will never forget you. Love you so much. You will always be my special little boy!
