I just recently was made aware of a blog called the crumb diaries. This blog is written by an awesome mom of an even more awesome special needs teen named Logan. In her own words, “Logan is undiagnosed- but not because we haven’t searched high and low for answers. He has had extensive testing with some of the finest doctors in our area, and I am confident if anyone could give us a diagnosis, it would have been them. This is something I have dedicated my entire life to, we just haven’t found the answer yet.”
How handsome is this guy? (photo from the crumb diaries FB page)
Logan is awesome. Did I mention that yet? We found out that Mr. Awesome (aka Logan) shares a birthday with our very own Mr. Pawsome (aka Casper). Now, that is cool. Big time cool! October 19th is officially Awesome Day. I think we should get a paid holiday! (Ok, it is a Saturday this year so we will take that holiday on the Monday after, kind of like President’s Day, only better. K?) Oh, and guess what! He lives right by SDP!!!! We are totally going to meet up there one day so he can meet and play with the danes!!!
So, yeah, that’s pretty exciting for us. But, wait, there’s more…
Logan’s birthday is going to the dogs!
Click it… CLICK IT!!!!
You really should click it, but I will sum it up here. Logan doesn’t really care much about gifts for himself. So you know what he’s doing? (You would know if you clicked it.) He is giving his birthday money to the K9 unit of his local police department. Seriously. That is AWESOME!!! Awesome, I say.
Now, I am not asking anyone to send a donation. I mean, I am not going to stop you or anything, but don’t feel like that is what this is all about. (And you know, if you want to support a K9 unit that is a really cool thing!!!) BUT, (you knew there was a but, right?) I AM going to ask that all of you wonderful readers from all over the world send Logan a birthday card.
Yeah, that’s all. A card. I think this would be a wonderful way to celebrate Casper’s birthday by showing our love and support for another pawsome October 19th boy. Logan’s mom is collecting cards sent from everywhere to see how many and from where to present to Logan on his birthday. I just think that is really a sweet idea. And I KNOW you guys won’t fail me.
Logan obviously loves dogs, so dog cards are cool, but horse cards are even better! (I couldn’t find a horse one! I am soooo bummed!) So PLEASE find a horse or dog card and send it off to Logan. It would be great if you signed it with your name followed by “Casper the Friendly Dane fan” so he knows how you learned about him and he knows that some of Casper’s love goes with each card.
You can send cards to:
100 Macy St. Suite F, #271
Amesbury MA 01913
So, guys, are you in? Remember: It is October 19th!!!
P.S. They also have an Etsy shop and sell the most adorable ‘Slombies’ but they sell out FAST. Favorite it on Etsy and follow them on FB to keep up with the stock.

I just found a “Great” birthday that has two great danes on the front. Yeah, sending it tomorrow. Makes me happy to make someone else happy also. Thx Casper
Awesome idea Casper.
What are the chances of meeting someone with your birthdate. I think that is a great idea and I love that he is thinking about others on his birthday. I look forward to your reading your blog about meeting Awesome Logan and your trip to SDP.
I’m in!! Thanks for sharing this. Logan sounds like a delightful young man! Hugs and kisses to Casper…🐾😍🐾
What a wonderful young man Logan is….Mr. Awesome and Mr. Pawsome, cool!! Will get that card out today from the East Coast, Canada. I hope he receives a huge pile of cards from all over the world; can you imagine??? Casper, I can’t believe your first birthday is almost here; a big celebration at SDP, I’m sure! You and your family are definitely the most pawsome/awesome family and I really loved seeing you yesterday at the farm, especially when you were on “Jack’s” chair for your photo op….pawsome! Wish I was there in person, to give you a big hug. Maybe, next year. Have a super day; keep up the great work that you all do. Love you, Casper!! ❤
Awsome, Lauri, will get a card in the mail ASP. Can hardly wait for Logan to experience SDP. What wonderful, giving people you are. Please give my Little Ghost a hug for sharing his birthday w/such an awesome young man…..
p.s. Found a horse card, even has horses on the envelope. It’s in the mail! Thanks again for bringing this awesome young man to our attention.
Greeting Card Universe has a good selection of horse and horse theme birthday cards by freelance designers.
Casper and family, I think this is a fantastic idea and will gladly send a card and will attempt to find a horse if possible. What a thoughtful young man to do this and both Casper and Logan are pawsome to have their birthdays on the same day. What a Great heart you have Casper
