Meet The Lady Of The House

This is Ginger. She is the true lady of our house. If you were to come visit me she would think that you had come just to see her. This is her home - we are just here to serve her. :)

Ginger is my constant companion and friend and is never far from my side. When we lost Max- her daddy doggie, she was devastated. They were always together. She loved him so much - usually she was not content to lay by his side,
she had to lay on him as I showed you in this post.
Ginger loves to be as close to you as possible. This is her favorite place to be when Hubby is gone.

This is a terrible picture of me - taken a few years ago at our old house in Washington. I was getting the air squeezed out of me by this very heavy dog!

She isn't very good with boundaries as you can see, and if you let her give you kisses, she will practically climb into your mouth.

Boxers are very high maintenance dogs but very lovable, it has been a joy to have them in my life. I love it that when I come home at night she is always there to greet me as if I am the most important person in her world. She does her little wiggle dance and lays on her back for "tummy rubs" then goes to get her favorite toy that she knows I will be impressed with - Cranky Kitty.

She adores going for long walks and loves car rides. When we made the long five day trek from Washington to Georgia, she loved every minute of it.

Such a sweet girl!

The earliest memory I have of a dog was one that was given to me when I was a toddler. Believe it or not, her name was Ginger. I couldn't remember not having her. She was a Heinz 57 with a major part being in the Spitz family. Very possessive and an excellent watchdog. When I was thirteen we moved to an apartment complex that didn't permit 4 legged pets. My father found her a home (I was told), and she left my life, never to return.
I too hope we have a chance to meet one day. It seems we have many things in common.
Have a blessed Sunday.

Aww, she sounds so sweet! We have a Golden Retriever, Maxie, and yes this is his house and we are here to serve him! My daughter even wrote a poem about him for a class that starts out "My dog is my master, I am not his" LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!
