Baby Logan

Little Logan came into our family on November 14th, 2008, we wanted another pet to love, he is not a replacement for Storm. As pet owners know not one pet that has gone to the Bridge can be replaced, they each and everyone has a special place in our hearts. They leave behind many memories of their delightful personalities, things they did to make us laugh and smile.

Logan's Birth Certificate

Just like Dusty and Storm, Logan was born in New York on the Marshal Ferret Farm, on August 17th, 2008, his breed is a black sable. My granddaughter purchased him at PetCo in Holland, Michigan on November 14th., she also bought him his own cage and supplies. The reason for this we did not know how Dusty would act around a strange ferret, so we fixed Logans cage up for him and put Logan in for the night. At the pet store Logan had a cage buddy, so he chewed and dug at the bars of his cage, he wanted out. Logan was not use to a regular cage, if anyone has ever went into PetCo they would see their animals are in glass cages except the birds.

What's in there?

The next day we put Dusty and Logan on the floor and Dusty grabbed him by the neck and drug him around, this is normal behavior and then he ignored him the rest of play time. Logan was not afraid of Dusty, he followed him around and tried to play. The first week when Logan was out he would chuckle all the time, this is their way of talking, it really sounds so cute. He liked us right away, never would let you catch him, until a few days he would come up to you and if you tried to pick him up he would run away, he is so cute and soft, we love him already. We tried to see if he likes fruit or vegetables but he does not, he does like whipping cream and his ferret oil. We are putting him in Dusty's cage a little at a time, one time they did fall asleep together, so I guess there is hope.

Dusty

I have to give you an update about Dusty, he misses his pal Storm very much and was mourning him when we got Logan. It was heart breaking when we would let him out for play time, he went all over the house looking for Storm, plus he doesn't look so good, he lost almost all his hair from that adrenal disease, he did have an implant under his skin to get his hair back, but it is a slow process. He tolerates Logan, does not drag Logan so much any more, and he will play with him a little. It is sad to look in Dustys cage and see him laying in his hammock alone, without Storm draped over him like a blanket. Dusty caught a intestinal virus that Logan brought with him, but Logan did not have it, just was a carrier. So we had to take Dusty to the vets and get medicine, we thought we were going to loose Dusty for awhile, it took a week, he is all better now.

Gimme that!

Logan likes to run at your legs and jump on them, when you bend down to pick him up he runs away, he never stops running around the house when it is play time. He has a tube to run through, a big blanket on the floor to run on, plays with plastic pop bottles and anything you throw for him to chase, we are trying to break him of chewing on the cords. The thing he enjoys most is hiding things under couch and beds, he even trys to drag your shoes under. We are going to post some pictures of him soon.

Whew! I'm glad Dusty is doing better and is tolerating Logan. I hope that with time, Logan will be a comfort to Dusty. And to you. I know that Storm will always be special to you, but I think Logan has a place in your heart as well. Hearts are so big in that way. There's room for as many as we let in.

Thank you for the update on Logan and Dusty. I guess Dusty will take a while to get over losing his buddy Storm. I think you are right about there being some hope if they fell asleep together. We are really looking forward to the pictures!

Take care

Margaret and Charles, we can't wait to see pictures of your new baby Logan! We hope Dusty warms up to him really soon ... we think he may be like a kitty in the fact that it might take him a bit. Our bean brother Greg had a ferret named Tango a long time ago, and he was a cutie! We hope you had a nice weekend!

This is delightful to see Logan so bright eyed and happy in his new home. These are such sweet pictures, they both look like real characters. I hope they continue to get friendlier and closer, but like any relationship thing, I guess it takes time. Thank you for sharing these lovely pictures!

Too cute :)

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

Margaret and Charles, I am so HAPPY to see pictures of Logan, he is adorable! I hope that Dusty and Logan will become best buddies ... I know how hard it is for a furry to lose a best furriend, when our brother Max went to the Bridge my sissy Sabrina was really depressed, because they had been together for quite a while. I came to live with them right before Max died, and it was the best thing, because after getting to know each other we became such great furriends and we love each other sooo much. Thank you letting me and Sabrina and Simon see the pictures of your new baby!
Purrs and headbutts,
Sam

(Merry Christmas to you and yours Margaret. xx)

ramblingwoods said...

You asked about Benji's owner and how she is doing. She says that she is very tired all the time and not able to accomplish much which frustrates and makes her sad. With the cold weather, it makes it harder to get out and her breathing is not great, but she says she is doing OK. Thank you for asking. I told her that Benji has a fan club.

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

Midlife Mom said...

So sorry to hear that you lost Storm. It's so hard to lose a much beloved pet that you have had for a long time. When I lost my ferrets the original two passed away within 9 days of each other. They were very old and I think the one left just couldn't live without the other one. The last one we had for several more years as she was a bit younger. They are such wonderful family members and just cheered me up if I ever had a down day. I still miss them but where we are gone so much now I can't have any more. Logan is such a sweetie! He will bring you many years of companionship and laughter! He and Dusty will bond eventually and be the best of buddies! Thanks for stopping by and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Merle said...

Dear Margaret ~~ Great post with lots of good picture. It looks as though these two will bond.
Thank you for your kind words and I am so glad you get some jokes that make you lol.
Takr care and have a wonderful Christmas, my friend, Love, Merle.

Hi Margaret, I'm glad you had a new member, not to replace storm but to lessen the blow and makes you glad again. I know Dusty will like him too.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with lots of love and fun. Cheers!
