All in the Family

This is my baby boy Logan. Logan was my first dog and first love. I got him when he was only 8 weeks old. He was much larger than your average boxer, and weighed in at 100 lbs, and pure muscle. Everyone always said he looked kinda scary, but he was a big baby at heart. You see, Logan was born with a disease called Polyarthritis, which affects every joint in the body. This disease causes severe pain and practically immobilizes the joints. We took Logan to many vets and each one suggested that we just euthanize him because there wasn't much we could do. Finally, we took him to one final vet who suggested we try placing on Logan on steroids, willing to try anything, of course we agreed. The treatment worked and Logan was able to beat the disease and live a happy boxer life. However, when Logan was about 9, he developed cancer. At that moment, my heart broke. But he kept on fighting, just like the first time. Logan was able to overcome the cancer, but sadly, about a year later the cancer came back and it would ultimately take his life. My baby boy passed away on February 5th, 2010. After months of Chemotherapy and constant vet visits, he got to the point where he couldn't fight anymore. On that afternoon I had to make the hardest decision of my life. My boy was suffering and I owed it to him, to not let him suffer anymore. A part of me died that day along with him, but he shall always be a friend, a heroic fighter, and a dog I will forever cherish. RIP My baby, I love you.
