Update

Yesterday we found out that Logan had cancer in his nose.  No one was expecting this, even the vets (they were assuming it was an auto immune disease).  Due to the speed that things were going from bad to worse and his age, we decided not to attempt radiation therapy.  Yesterday evening Logan passed away.  He was an amazingly kind and patient dog.  His sweetness and gentleness was noticed by everyone who met him.  He was a wonderful cat brother and both Maximus and Mr. Noodle were lucky to have such a doggy (even if they didn't always agree).  I just found out recently that when I would take him to the vet to get his nails trimmed they would use him to teach the new vet techs who were still getting the hang of it.  He was so patient and good that he would sit still for a complete stranger who wasn't completely confident in what they were doing.

Our family is still reeling from his loss and processing what happened.  Caleb is away at college, but he has memories of a healthy dog.  When he left at the end of August, there were no outward symptoms that anything was going on.  Mr. Noodle doesn't understand where his brother is and I think he's looking for him and asking about him.  We are all the better for knowing and loving Logan.

He was a very good dog.

I am so sorry for your loss. It is a shock to the family when you lose your pet. They are a part of your family for sure. I have two cats, sisters. In April I had to put Layla down. She had suffered a severe seizure. Caley was as lost as myself. She would go around the apartment looking for her. We were devastated. My heart goes out to you and your family.

So very sorry for your loss. We have dogs, and they are our family, too.
They never stay long enough and always leave a void when they go. RIP Logan, a Very Good Dog indeed!

Melanie, I'm so sorry about Logan. He was indeed the goodest dog, whether as a knitwear model, pseudo feline, exercise partner, confidant, or "just" a companion. He will be missed, even by lurkers like me.

So sorry to learn this. It is always so hard to say goodbye to our furkids-losing one as sweet as Logan must be very hard.
