Goodnight Sweet Prince...

Dearest Logan,

Early yesterday evening you decided it was finally that time and left us to join your brother Caleb at the bridge. Words cannot begin to describe what a loved and cherished member of our family you have been these past 11 1/2 years. As our first German Shepherd, you taught Heather and I the true meaning of both love and devotion and you showed us all the wonder and joy having a dog can bring. I will always remember the special times we had together as well as your oh-so-unique traits - running the tank trails at Ft. Hood, Texas, chasing jack-rabbits in Sierra Vista, Arizona, hiding pig ears in the sofa cushions, leading the pack on our neighborhood walks in North Carolina, howling at random sirens at three in the morning, sneaking into the bedroom at night to sleep close to Heather, and most of all for your gentle, loving soul. You always kept Heather safe and secure all the years I was away overseas with your loud bark and comforting presence...you never failed in your duty...you kept the watch, and you did it with both pride and dignity...and for that I will always be grateful. I know that now that you are in a much better place and that Caleb is happy to be back with his big brother and that you feel so much better...but you will be missed so, so much. Take care, my son...and know that one day, we'll be together again. Until then, take comfort in knowing that you will always be remembered in our thoughts and prayers. You were the best of all of us and the world was truly a much better place for you having been in it.

I love you.
