- A little girl in southwest Atlanta used her 6th birthday to remember her friend who was mauled to death by a dog earlier this year. 

Logan Braatz, 6, died in January when he was attacked by a group of stray dogs while walking to the school bus stop. The dogs also came after Logan's neighbor, Syrai Sanders, who's been through a number of surgeries and continues to recover.
