For years, Britney Logan, a photographer, had always dreamt of having a dog in the family. But with a newborn to look after, she didn’t think it was a good idea to adopt one, yet. So she had to delay pet ownership.
Now that Laurel, her daughter, is already 3, Logan knew now’s the time. “Being a single mom, I wasn’t sure if juggling a baby and a young puppy would be possible,” said Logan. “But Laurel’s more independent now, so I thought, it’s time!”
Laurel has been with dogs owned by their relatives. And yet, Logan wasn’t sure how her daughter would adjust and how their tight-knit residence will accommodate an addition to the family. Turns out, there was nothing Logan should worry about.
As soon as they welcomed an adorable German shepherd into their family, Laurel became obsessed. “Every time we are out, Laurel tells every person about her ‘really cool, really soft puppy Wren,’” said Logan. “They’re inseparable!”
But there was something so special between Laurel and Wren. Something more serious than anyone could say. And Logan caught this precious private moment.
“I was working up late when I heard Laurel whisper,” said Logan. “I checked and I saw her give a bone to Wren. She then covered her with a towel and whispered, ‘It’s OK. You can go to sleep now, shhh.. I’m right beside you.’ Wren was simply eating the bone up!”

But it wasn’t a new occurrence to Logan’s eyes. Laurel makes sure to tuck her best pal before bed so Wren could sleep comfortably. Sometimes, the sweet girl even puts a pillow beneath Wren’s head. And the patient German shepherd is more than happy to play along.
“Wren’s a very sweet and a very smart puppy. A lot of people have told me to consider training her to become an emotional support dog due to her calmness and gentleness. She’s so loving that right now, I just couldn’t wait to see Laurel and Wren grow up together.”
