One of the hardest part of pet owning, is knowing when to let go. Hogan was a Maremma Guardian Livestock Dog. His job was to bond with the livestock and protect them against predators. Hogan and his team allowed me to sleep at night, they allowed me to leave the farm knowing my sheep and then alpacas were in good hands.
As Hogan got older, there was less expectation of his work, and his time to enjoy relaxing and receiving love. Hogan was not just a barn dog, he was a team player, and a family member. He knew all my secrets, as he never wagged his tongue, only his tail.
I love you Hogan, and I know the tears will be less one day! You were one awesome boy!
