Introducing: Ginger Snap Cookie


It's just Ginger for short. I've been missing Snowy and dropping ever so subtle hints that I wanted to get a new dog but it I still coerced in order to make it happen. Keith didn't want to commit to dog ownership because of the hassle at vacation time--finding a dog sitter. There's also the fur in the carpet factor and other things but to me it's worth it. So off to PetCo we went in search of a dog to adopt. I had looked at the Homeward Bound Dog Rescue web page (we got Snowy through them) to find which location they were at this weekend. We looked at all the dogs but this little girl is calm, over the jumpy puppy stage, potty trained and kennelled when owners are gone. It will take a bit for her to get accustomed to us but I think, so far things are going smoothly. Keith said she is so quiet that you can forget that she is there. So far she does not have free roam of the house. That will come after a vet check. I do know for sure that Fat Herman doesn't really like sharing the laundry room with Ginger and has made his objections known. Erin thinks the dog will sleep in her room once she is given free roam. We will see how that goes.
ADD ON: Spaniel Laborador mix -- cocker spaniel, I think.

I think Ginger will be an excellent addition to the family. She does look calm - and that's important. Mya should have years of fun with her. -----------------------------Sidenote: Our mother is caring for a layover dog. Be sure to ask her about her temporary addition to the family.
