Mom decided to set me up and get me on video trying to control my “licker”. I have had a problem with my licker for a long time and was pretty sure I had it under control. But, mom thought otherwise. She called me over for some love the other day and had a video in her other hand. She made me lose control of my licker and has now displayed it for all to see. Sooo embarrassing! Yet, I am still pretty cute aren’t I???


I have mastered the "sad eyes"

Last night mom and dad were eating these things called Beek Kabobs which daddy cooked on the grill. They smelled SOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOOD! My brother and sisters were all kinda just laying aroung, sniffing the air and enjoying the aroma. I was not about to just sit there. I needed to taste these Kabob things! So, I decided to go over to dad and give it my best. Turns out he wasn't even paying attention but mom was. She saw me slide over to him and lay my head on his lap and I broke out "the sad eyes". As soon as mom saw "the sad eyes" I heard "awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww" and I knew I was about to taste the fabulous human food known as Kebob. Turns out, I didn't like the peppers or onion. Next time I will request beef only!


Why my daddy loves me so much...

It's no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk. That is why daddy loves me soooo much! BOL!


If I Didn't Have A Dog

I could walk barefoot around the yard in safety. My house could be carpeted instead of tiled and laminated.

All flat surfaces, clothing, furniture, and cars would be hair-free.

When the doorbell rings, my home wouldn't sound like a kennel.

When the doorbell rings, I could get to the door without wading through all the fuzzy bodies who beat me there.

I could sit on the couch and my bed any way I wanted, without having to take into consideration how much space several fur bodies need to get comfortable.

I would have enough money, and no guilt, to go on a real vacation.

I would not be on a first name basis with 6 veterinarians as I put their yet unborn grandkids through college.

The most used words in my vocabulary would not be: "out," "sit," "down", "come," "no," "stay," and "leave it ALONE.

My house would not be cordoned off into zones with baby gates and makeshift barriers.

I would not talk 'baby talk'. 'Eat your din din'. Yummy yummy for the tummy'.

My house would not look like a day care center, with toys everywhere.

My pockets would not contain things like poop bags, treats and an extra leash.

I would no longer have to spell the words B-A-L-L, W-A-L-K, T-R-E-A-T, O-U-T, G-O, R-I-D-E, S-U-P-P-E-R, and C-O-O-K-I-E.

I would not have as many leaves INSIDE my house as outside.

I would not look strangely at people who think having ONE dog ties them down too much.

I'd look forward to spring and the rainy season instead of dreading 'mud' season.

I would not have to answer the question: 'Why do you have so many animals?' from people who will never know the joy of being loved unconditionally by the closest thing to an angel they will ever encounter.



Easter Fun.

Hello to all my Dogsters! I love you! I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend with your family. We celebrated Easter with mom, dad, grandpaw and his new wife, Shirley.

The weekend started out really sad because my human brother and sister had to put their dog to sleep on Saturday. I am particularly hurt by this as this was the family I lived with before mom and dad saved me. Story: Dad was married to Meg, who is the mom of my human brother and sister many years ago. Dad and Meg didn't stay together and Meg remarried another man (Rick) with two other human kids. They bought a dog named Dixie and then adopted me. Dad remarried my mom (Deanna). Mom and Dad's ex wife (Meg) made friends for the human kids' sake and she became a pet sitter for me when Meg and Rick would go out of town. Mom quickly realized I was being abused in Meg's home and took it upon herself to offer to take me from them. Meg said "YES" immediately as Rick didn't like me...was the best day of my life. But, I had made friends with Dixie while living there and hated to hear that she got sick. Mom said that Dixie had been sick for TWO WEEKS before they took her to the vet and by then it was bad. They opted to put her down versus treat her. We are all very sad but realize she is in a better place. Rainbow Bridge has another Angel.

After the sadness of the loss we all needed to enjoy our lives so we went to the Chattahoochee River Trail for the entire day! We packed food, water and snacks and spent the day by the river. We got to run and play and eat (and poop/pee) all day long. Mom even brought us some special snacks she made called "cheese puffs". She got the recipe from a furriend on Dogster and made them for us Saturday. I can't tell you how hard it was to wait until Sunday to eat those! They smelled so good cooking and cooling. We are home now and are all passed out. I told mommy (before I passed out) to be sure and let you all know about our day.

We hope you had a Happy Easter and will catch up with your stories this week so pawlease be sure to share.

Love - Ginger!


Who knew poop and pee would be so "ok"???

I pooped and peed on the rug leading out in the back yard yesterday and DIDN'T GET IN TROUBLE! Instead, mommy and daddy cleaned it up and petted me afterwards all while telling me how sorry they were! WTD? I mean, I am sure this is top of the "NO" list but I was not in trouble!

Turns out it was because they felt guilty. I would normally never do anything like that. But, I am not a barker either. I was abused at the home prior to my furever home and as a result I almost never bark. When I have to go I usually just pace from one person to the next and they know what it means.

However, my pacing went unnoticed yesterday because Mom and Dad were taking care of my fursis Tina (she had a dew claw removed...ouch!). Mom was in bed with Tina and Dad was on the couch watching something. I paced from room to room trying to get someone to notice but no one did. Finally, I had to do it. It was beyond my control.

Once Dad noticed it he went back and asked Mommy who was not in the room with her. Mom said "Ginger" a/k/a "me". Mom and Dad were in shock. I then heard Mom tell Dad that she saw me leave the room several times and did not put "two and two" together because he was in the other room & she assumed I was "conflicted" as to which room I wanted to be in. I do that sometimes. Dad said the same thing and before you knew it...they were apologizing to me:-)

Not a bad deal huh? p.s. I will not make a habit of this as I am sure mom will not be so forgiving once she replaces that rug! BOL!

Mommy and Daddy went to Gatlinburg this weekend to see Grandpaw marry his new wife. They left us with a pet sitter which was good and bad. Good because we know as soon as the pet sitter shows up that mom is out of town & will return soon with "guilt" toys. Bad because we have to be without them for a couple of days.

As predicted, mom came dragging all of the luggage in the door upon her return and I spotted it...a plastic bag that did not belong! That was OUR GUILT TOYS!!!! Mom immediately drops everything and proceeds to make herself feel better by hugging us, kissing us, smelling our butts (HA! made that one up because humans don't do that for some reason) and then divvying up the guilt toys.

We loved our new toys as each of us took one in different directions to enjoy. Problem arose when mom tried to play with Tina and her new toy. Mom noticed there were little "beads" like you would usually find in a "bean bag chair" located in each paw of our stuffed moose. That worried her and she took all of our toys away from us. She sat them on the counter and we all wondered...what just happened??

Well, Tina spent the next few hours finding ways to get to the counter and get each toy by one. Each time she did so mom would take them back. This went on for some time and I must say, it was entertaining. But...not as entertaining as mom sitting in front of the trash can and meticulously cutting out each and every bag in each stuffed moose and bear until they were "bead free" and returning same to us. Now you tell me....isn't she an AWESOME MOM?

Even funnier is before she had the idea to cut the beads out of the toy she made a "guilt" purchase on Dr's Foster & Smith where she order $45 worth of toys to make up for the other toys. Too funny mommy! Waiting on that delivery:-)


Dog Days with Mommy

Mommy has been sick for three days now. I knew it wasn't good when she woke up all night {tuesday evening} coughing. The next morning I heard her talking to her boss' fake "voice on a machine" telling him she wasn't feeling well. After the call she wasted a whole lot of toilet paper cleaning her nose out. I was confused by that because we aren't allowed to floss our teeth with the TP but she can clean her nose with it all day long...oh well. Next thing I know mommy is back in bed and we go nowhere for the entire day. Daddy came home with dinner. At that time I knew it wasn't good because mommy & daddy love to cook dinner for one another. Daddy took care of mommy for the rest of the evening.

Today is Friday (morning) and we are still in bed with mommy. She seems to feel a little better today because she went to the human vet yesterday and he gave her some medicine. Her boss told he not to come back until Monday because no one at the office wants to catch what she has...mommy has such a nice boss!

Anyway, I have decided to call these past few days "The Dog Days with Mommy" because we have been with her for three days straight taking care of her and giving her all the love she needs to get through the icky feelings of being sick. We make her laugh (coughing immediately after any laugh), relax, move around a bit (we do have to go potty even though she is sick), and get a lot of bed rest (whilst cuddling with all us around her). What more could a mommy ask for?

She is getting better already...thanks to us not the vet meds she started taking yesterday! Anyone else need a dogtor? Fees negotiable, treats necessary!


Please help a fellow Dogster in need of pawrayers & love!!

I recently made furriends with a new family on Dogster and they are fantastic. Sadly, Emily left for Rainbow Bridge November 2009 and now their other furbaby, Charlotte is ill. We need to pray for Charlotte and her family. Please head over, give Power of the Paw and make furriends with the family. Let them know we care and we are praying for them.

I have Beauty and Brains!

Mom has recently taken a liking to making videos of us on that new camera Daddy got her for Christmas. She has made several of which I was a willing participant. However, this weekend I let her know who is boss when it comes to that “pupparazzi” type stalking she has been doing.

See, I wasn’t looking my best this weekend. It rained and I like to play in the rain/mud. Call me crazy but I think it helps my fur to be shinier and fuller. The shiny/full effect does not happen immediately…you must first let the mud stay on your fur for a while. I was doing this over the weekend and mommy decided to break out the camera and attempt to make a video of me in the back yard. I WAS HAVING NONE OF THAT! I was not looking my best and did not want to be seen on camera that way. Mom tried for about an hour to get a good video of me but I used all of my brains to prevent same. For all of my Dogsters out there that find themselves in the same predicament – here is some tips to having the video deleted and not used without your consent:

1. Fart while on camera

2. Crap while on camera

3. Snip at one of your furfamily’s legs while on camera

4. Hang out by the very unattractive burn pile in the back yard

5. Hide behind the moto trailer for the duration of filming and when mom
walks up on you behind the trailer, walk really close to her feet so she
quits filming because she doesn’t want her belly in the film

6. Run in fast circles making yourself a blur

7. Eat grass

8. Put your ears down and tail between your legs like you have just been the
victim of animal abuse.

I found that all of these techniques have worked quite well for me. After all…I am beautiful and I have brains. Better luck next time mommy! Love – Ginger
