Arrival Story:
Update: Feb. 20 2010- Still no Ginger. Last lead turned out to be another dog again. I don't know what else to do. ....... ......... ....... ....... ......... .......... .......... ........... ..... ........ UPDATE: Ginger is still missing as of Feb. 7th. Got one possible lead that seemed promising last week, but it hasn't come to anything. I've met more people in the county while looking for her, and given my number to hundreds of people it feels like, but still no Ginger............................ ....... .................................. ........... ............................. UPDATE: Ginger is lost! She went missing on Jan. 6th 2010. I have knocked on doors, called Animal Control, posted flyers, offered a reward, but have only gotten false leads. I haven't given up hope though! If you are in Oregon, please keep your eyes open for her- I will give $100.00 to anyone who catches her! .................................. .................................. .................................. ...... Ginger came from the Durango Dog Ranch in Colorado, a commercial dogsled tour company. I was visiting and worked for them for a short time, and long story short, I took home a sled dog. .................................. ................... Ginger is the first dog I've ever owned- the first dog I've ever really loved too. My parents are cat people and I was afraid of dogs as a child. But... times change. At first I was kinda uncomfortable being around a lot of dogs (35!) at the Dog Ranch, but they grew on me, I'd say. By the end of one week, I was ready to steal one of those cuties! Luckily, I didn't have to. The kennel owner wanted to give away some of his dogs, especially the older ones (over 8 years). I could have picked from about a dozen dogs, but Ginger stole my heart, with her impeccable manners and wolfy good looks! .................................. As I've had her, she has become even more amazing. I can let her off leash almost anywhere, and she stays by my side. (How many huskies do that?) She is polite and gentle with cats and small animals, even children. She is totally devoted to me, won't go on walks with anyone else, and howls when I'm gone.

Bio:
Ginger was never a "pet" per se before I got her. She's kinda shy, and the bolder dogs got most of the lovin' from visitors. So it's really a miracle to me that she's so perfectly behaved... .................................. .......................... Ginger is a very good example of the type of dog used for modern endurance racing. Sleek, fast, and small with an effortless trot, she can go all day. .................................. ............. Because she wasn't used to being away from the dog pack, I think it was a little traumatic for her when I took her away from the Dog Ranch. The day after I got her, we went hiking, and my idiot boyfriend let her off leash. We didn't see her for TWO WEEKS. We looked for her for days, but no use. Eventually a girl managed to catch her (right where our car had been parked, days earlier) and called me because my number was written on her collar. What a relief! I felt like the biggest idiot in the world the whole time she was gone. I cried a lot for letting her getting away, probably to be hit by a car or killed by a predator. She was so tired and hungry, and had lost some weight. But it's all better now! We have bonded and now she won't let me out her sight. She is the best hiking buddy ever! .................................. .................................. ......... I love Ginger so much. She makes life interesting and worthwhile. Every day she makes me laugh with her funny little cute things she does. I've gone from being a dog-fearing cat lover to a cat-disdaining dog lover. That's our story and I hope I get the share my life with her for years to come.
