Logan (aka Hocking Hills Dog) Update

So we are quickly approaching 24 hours with our new family member Logan. Just FYI driving 9 hours in a car with a puppy and then introducing him to two new animals NOT a good idea.

Logan is very much a baby who likes to play with any and all toys. So toys that Ema abandoned years ago are definitely getting a work out. I am surprised at how much Ema is okay with this new addition. She plays with him when she's in the mood and when she's not she lets him know. They also are very good at walking together and love to chase each other in the backyard.

Now Shmonster on the other hand I think is reserving judgment. I have been lucky enough to be home all day today with them and when Logan, Ema and I decided it was time to take a nap, Shmonster did join us and I was pretty happy about that.

Now for the particulars, we just got back from the vet. And here's what I'm sure everyone was dying to know.

1. He is a Beagle Mix (with what they aren't exactly sure, but Beagle is a definite)

2. He is around 7 months old, all of his puppy teeth are in and he will not get much bigger.

3. He weighs 19 lbs and he is of a healthy weight.

4. He is not microchipped (this was one I was a little worried about) but he is going to be as soon as Ant and I get him neutered - which he is not.

5. He is a healthy well-behaved puppy. All except for having tape worm, which we got a dewormer for and thankfully can't be spread to the other animals, a tick which I just found this morning. The tick wasn't in very far so he hasn't had it long, but we got antibiotic just to be safe. And he also has a slight ear infection, for which we also got medicine.

This dog is super smart. He understood immediately where the dog toys were and what he could play with. He hasn't once tried to eat out of the other dogs bowls only his own. And I seriously think he is already starting to know his name. He also has boat loads of energy.

So far no house accidents and he took to sleeping in the crate last night fairly quickly (only about 5-10 minutes of whining). But really the crate was for his own safety because we weren't sure if Shmonster could be trusted. The next few weeks aren't going to be boring that's for sure :)

It's so cool that Hocking Dog is as good as we all hoped. Can't wait to see him whenever we see you guys next. :)

Logan is the perfect name, too.

I'm glad to see he is healthy and has a good home.

congrats on the new family member! its kind of funny, the mazda6 guys just had our national meet like 2 weeks ago. and one of the members brought home a baby kitten that was almost dead they found. but she was in pretty bad shape. but was able to make it through so far! i love stories like these.

Funny how the world turns sometimes. Erin and Antny asked me about a week ago if Leann and I were interested in adopting Logan from them, and we said yes. So as of this past Saturday, he's still a NEPO Dog and is still doing great. :)

:( He will be missed, but we're glad he went to a good home.

Doggy-dog, we met you five years ago today, and since then you've been the best friend a guy could ask for. :thup: :thup:

Links broke.

Bufalo July 24th, 2015 07:37 PM

Probably drop box related. Dammit why is probetalk still in the dark ages with regards to attachments and such?

yellowrob July 24th, 2015 07:57 PM

Gonna bring the boy to the next Hocking hillsish meet? I think we might try something a little different next time, we tried last year but it didn't pan out.

Hi Logan!
