Remembering Logan

We often said Logan would be sainted at the end of his life. You see, we had adopted him out of sheer desperation. Kelsey, Our HIGH ENERGY golden retriever/border collie mix needed a friend!

Thatcher. Born December 17, 2004.
Went to the bridge October 12, 2012.

Thatcher was huge in every sense of the word. When we picked him up as an 11-week-old pup he weighed 48 lbs. He kept on growing and growing and GROWING. As an adult he was 40” to the shoulder, and 200 lean pounds. He was pushy, and sweet, and The Great Communicator. There was never any doubt about what he was telling you. He was a people magnet who just knew how to be with people of any age. He was also patient with our young dog, putting up with far more nonsense than we would.

Most of all, Thatcher was the best lap dog. If you sat on a chair or a sofa at our home, he would always back up and sit on your lap, gently asking for lovin’s. He was a beautiful representative of a Great Dane, huge in size, and, more importantly, huge in heart. We miss him terribly. He has left a huge hole in our hearts and our home.
