Yep, that's right, she has a forever family. This morning Ginger and I met her new mom, Kathie, new dad, Mac and big brother, Laser (yellow lab). Her new family had just spent two days driving from MA to just north of Atlanta. Ginger is so lucky that her entire family is retired (even Laser is a retired service dog) and everyone will be together 24x7. Her 2 footer sibs are all grown with fur kids of their own so Laser and Ginger have their parents all to themselves. Ginger doesn't know yet, but she has her own pond to swim in and long Cape Cod beaches to walk and a Frisbee master to throw Frisbees her to catch.
This morning I met Kathie, Mac and Laser at their hotel just north of Atlanta (hey after their driving 2 days to get here, the last thing I wanted them to endure was Atlanta Monday morning traffic). We all sat in their room (Kathie, Laser, Ginger and I on the floor) and chatted for almost a hour. During that time Laser and Ginger did a good bit of sniffing and play bowing. After a bit Ginger was perfectly happy to sit between Kathie and I so she could obtain maximum petting opportunities.
Kathie confided in me that Ginger had a new pink collar with her name embroidered waiting for her at home. Home, what a great sounding word; and now Miss Ginger-Gingsey-Ginge has her forever one.
