FL 18-A

Note the old dog in the photo.  His name was Wally, and he "owned" the Island.
  He was the Coast Guard mascot, brought to Loggerhead as a pup.  The Coasties came and went, but Wally stayed and took care of the lighthouse. 
 I noticed rat traps in the trees and asked our Coastie guide why they didn't get a cat.  He looked very shocked and said "OH NO!  Wally doesn't like cats".

I have found out that Wally is buried on Loggerhead Key where he lived his life
 and I am told there is a little plaque on the dock where he greeted all his guests.
