1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.
2. Give me time to understand what you want of me
3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.
4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.
5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.
6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.
7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.
8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.
9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.
10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can't bear to watch. Don't make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.
Take a moment today to thank God for your pets.
Enjoy and take good care of them.
Life would be a much duller, less joyful experience without God's critters.
Please pass this on to other pet owners.
We do not have to wait for Heaven, to be surrounded by hope, love, and joyfulness. It is here on earth and has four legs!


Two trained labs need a home together in Georgia!!! Please- help spread the word!

Mommy has put their picture in my Dogster Plus album. Their names are Coco and Cookie. Here is thier mommy's story...

"We are moving overseas in just 2 weeks. Unfortunately, I have still not been able to find a good home for Cookie and Coco . We ' re not able to take our beloved doggies with us and I ' ve been desperately trying to find a home for both of them ' together ' . They were raised together and pine without each other. The Lab rescue have already said that they would probably separate them, so this is my last resort. Recently I tried to take Coco out in my car alone and she TOTALLY refused to even get into the car without Cookie......!!!! She absolutely pulled back on her haunches until Cookie was by her side.

Both doggies are in great health, have been spayed and have ID chips implanted under the skin.

Cookie turned 3 December 10th and Coco turned 3 April 1st. Cookie is my mellow-yellow, and just loves her tummy rubbed. Coco is adorably funny and lives for her "ball." She also loves the water...... Cookie loves lots of attention. Both doggies are loyal and love to walk. They have been raised with my 3 kids running around all over the place, and have survived Sammy ' s constant hugging and love of ' dress-up ' , so they are fantastic family dogs.. This is by far one of the most difficult decisions I have ever had to make, but under the circumstances I have no choice.

Please, please forward these pics to all you r friends. I want to find a great home for these fabulous doggies. They are just adorable and it ' s heartbreaking to let them go. In a perfect world, I hope that we could find someone local so that we can still keep in touch and visit them. I pray that someone, somewhere can help us keep Cookie and Coco together, and love them just as much as we do. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart."



We are sooo spoiled!!

Mommy got home early yesterday from work to be with us. Family Day is what she called it. I called it "hell yea!"...sorry for the language!! The rain in Georgia has finally gone and the temperatures are in the low 70's which made for a fabulous play date in our back yard. We ran and chased and sniffed and peed and pooped and played and stared at the fence wondering what it was like on the other side (without a leash on) get the picture.

Speaking of picture . Mom took pics of all of us yesterday but she could not get a good one of me b/c I get sooooo excited that I can't sit still. She managed to snap one shot of me that was not an "on the move" blur and all she got was my eyeball as I was on the move again!!! HA!! Told mommy to put my eyeball on here so you can see how excited it is. You can just tell from the "wide eye" that I was having a BLAST! Happy Friday to all my pup pals and I hope all of you have a fun filled weekend. Love - Ginger!

Mom and dad have been laughing since yesterday. I overheard them talking about me sneaking into the burn pile and playing around in it after all of this rain we have had in Georgia the past couple of weeks. I absolutely deny that! I am too golden and beautiful to play in the mud and soot from the burn pile. I told them repeatedly that I would not do such a thing and they had the audacity to take a picture of me whilst I was defending myself. Now they say there is a picture on my Dogster site showing proof!!! What are they talking about?????

My pal, Riley (got this from pal Dylan) has a cool diary entry and they asked for all pals to follow their lead. So here goes.

How old was your typist when they got their first dog? My mom's first dog was a Shetland Sheepdog named Sheltzie. She was 18 when they met.

Has your typist ever been bitten by another dog? If so, how many times? No, but my brother Braun has bitten Dad a couple of times. Braun likes to chase and bite anything on wheels so he bit dad while riding his dirt bike in the back yard and while dad was roller blading (on the butt!).

Spaghetti - with or without meatballs? Meatballs – no sauce please.

What is your typist’s favorite song right now? “Toes” by The Zack Brown Band

How many dog parks do you have in your area? One about five miles away.

What was the last movie that your typist went to see? I love you man. They did not like it much.

Is animal shampoo tested on humans? No because most of us have “special” skin so everyone uses something a little different. However, mom did bathe the cat with my Shampoo once. .

How often do you get your teeth brushed? Every time I get a denta-bone! HA!

Collar or harness? Harness

Do fish get thirsty ? When it is reaaaalllyyy hot.

Where is the last place your typist went to for vacation? Durhamtown Plantation in Greensboro, GA - it’s a sports resort with hundreds of miles of moto trails – mom and dad ride own dirt bikes for days when they go to visit that place.

PetSmart, Petco or _____? Mom orders all of our stuff online from Doctors Foster & Smith. They have everything!!.

Besides Dogster, what’s another one of your typist’s favorite web sites? YouTube,,

Have you ever caught a squirrel? Yes and I will never do it again. I wanted to play with it but mom said I paralyzed it. It was a sad day.

Are you more of a sniffer or a licker? LICKER! Can't control it!!

When’s the last time you were at the vet? Last month for my yearly. I would like to say I wont be back for a year but I have allergies so I have to go for allergy shots on a regular basis.

How many packets of Kool-Aid would it take to fill the ocean? About 798 quintrillion, I thought everyone knew that.

Does your typist spend more than two hours a day on Dogster? Yes. She checks it all day at work (off and on of course) and then she checks it when she gets home. It makes her smile.
What’s the name of the dog on the Cracker Jack box - Pete, Bingo, or Skip? Cracker Jack Box?? Not familiar with the term.

If you could meet any ‘famous’ dog past or present, who would it be? I would love to meet Petey from the Little Rascals.

Thanks to Riley who we got this from and Dylan which is who Riley got this from. FUN!!

If you want someone who will eat whatever you put in front of him and never say its not quite as good as his mother's......then adopt a dog.

If you want someone always willing to go out, at any hour,
For as long and wherever you want .....then adopt a dog.

If you want someone who will never touch the remote, doesn't care about football, and can sit next to you as you watch romantic movies.....then adopt a dog.

If you want someone who is content to get on your bed just to
Warm your feet and whom you can push off if he snores....then adopt a dog !

If you want someone who never criticizes what you do, doesn't care if you are pretty or ugly, fat or thin, young or old, who acts as if every word you say is especially worthy of listening to, and loves you unconditionally, perpetually.....then adopt a dog.

BUT, on the other hand, if you want someone who will never come when you call, ignores you totally when you come home, leaves hair all over the place, walks all over you, runs around all night and only comes home to eat and sleep, and acts as if your entire existence is solely to ensure his happiness....then adopt a cat!
