Logan (the dog)

My dog, Logan, a German Shepherd - Labrador Retriever mix, does not like her picture taken. She always looks away just as I'm about to take the shot... She is my one and only dog and my very first dog ever. Growing up, my parents limited us to hamsters, goldfish and turtles. I've always wanted a dog and cats...

As for her name "Logan," we did not select the name. We adopted her from the SPCA and that was the name she arrived there with, so we just left it as it. My next door neighbor wasn't too thrilled because that's the name of his grandson. Oh well... I do know someone who named their dog "Jessica." We usually don't name our pets with "people" names...

I have an identical dog except he has no white on him. He has been the very best of watch dogs..We got him when we lived on ten acres of land and he made an excellent guard dog. Now he is 9 yrs old and we live in the city and has adjusted beautifully. he may out live me though since I am 77. Just had to say hi since I saw your dogs pic..Happy blogging

She has such an expressive eye (can't see the other one). It seems to me her whole personality is right there on her face. She's such a sweet looking dog.

And that rug of yours is gorgeous!


PS: funny thing..the word verification I had to enter to post this started with d-o-g.

Thanks for stopping by! Logan is about 7 years old now and she is a great "guard" dog, if you count barking at birds and the mail man... We're moving to a house with a larger lot so she'll have plenty of room to run around, "garden" (dig holes) and chase birds. ;)

She she's a sweetie and is my shadow, but acts tough sometimes... my smallest cat, Luna, can scare the bejeezus out of her! BTW, guess where the rug came from??? Ikea! LOL!
