LOGAN 7-15-1994 to 9-11-2009


It is with devastation and great saddness that I finally write this. For years, I have dreaded and prayed this day would never happen. Unfortunately, it has really happened and it was suddenly. We never even saw it coming. We are still in shock. I keep asking myself WHY? I've saved him from IMHA and Heart Disease, CHF twice and a dog attack. WHY couldn't I this time? Logan explained to me, this time his SOUL had to go. He had no choice. He sends his LOVE everyday and waits for me at Rainbow Bridge.

Logan started breathing hard so we rushed him to the vet. He was diagnosed with Pneumonia. After a week of antibiotics and no progress he stopped eating and things progressed. Logan has had Heart Disease for 5 years now. He beat the odds of other dogs because he was a tripod. He didn't stress his heart much. Mostly, he slept in his bed and enjoyed being loved. They vets still aren't even sure if possibly he didn't have Lung Cancer, because he did not respond to treatment. But, it doesn't matter now to me. He was gone in 9 days, far too quickly.

I fortunately had this summer off so I spent June, July and August with him. I took pictures of him. Gave him a 15th Birthday Party and took him to playdates. Logan enjoyed life as usual. I was so glad his Iggy freinds came to his birthday party this year at Savvy Dog Boutique. Logan was special and enjoyed all his friends and comforts at home. His brothers Savvy and Ripley and sister PJ have been depressed, but they are getting extra LOVE these days.

I made a website with pictures of him at: www.loganbellangelo.shutterfly.com I hope you all visit it to see Logan.

Also, here are some pictures of Logan for you to enjoy too. And, thank you to all of you who over the years have helped me save this Sweet Angel Logan. Your advice has always helped me do the best for him. Thanks!

Michelle
Logan, PJ Ripley and Savvy

oh... sosad.gif I am sooo very sorry to read about Logan. As I looked at his pictures you posted on Shutterfly.....I thought how fortunate you and he were to have had each other. He looked like he had a wonderful life with all those parties, play dates, and all the love and attention from you and your family. But of course....us humans are always the luckiest of all to have these little pups in our lives. My thoughts and prayers are with you....Logan is running free, in perfect health now.....he waits at the bridge with all of our pets who have passed.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Sending love from our hounds to your heart.

"The Rainbow Bridge
inspired by a Norse legend


By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,

Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.

Where the friends of man and woman do run,

When their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next,

Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.

On this golden land, they wait and they play,

Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,

For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.

Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,

Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

They romp through the grass, without even a care,

Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.

All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,

Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.

For just at that instant, their eyes have met;

Together again, both person and pet.

So they run to each other, these friends from long past,

The time of their parting is over at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart,

Has turned into joy once more in each heart.

They embrace with a love that will last forever,

And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together. "

I know nothing we say can make you feel better or bring him back, but I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Those we love are never truly gone, and I think that includes our best friends (dogs) too.

Michelle,
I send you all of my blessing, he was so cute and looked like he lived a full life and that's the impression I got just from pictures. So I imagine that he had a wonderful 15 years. Take Care

Today is the day for remembering HEROES! Logan couldn't of picked a better day to leave this earth. I always told him he was my hero because of all the courage he had when he went through with IMHA, Leg Amputation, Heart Disease, Kidney Failure. He was one tough dog! Today, I celebrate his special life at 6:45pm the time I had to let him go. A sadness still fills my heart, but I smile at his memory. Rest in peace MY SWEET LOGAN.

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

Michelle, my thoughts are with you on this difficult anniversary. I will say a special prayer for Logan today. I know how hard these anniversaries are and I find that the passing years don't ease the hurt of missing an IG. Take care of yourself.
