Ginger's Return

Our 10 month old yellow lab mix Ginger has returned from her extended time away at doggie boot camp! We are very happy to have her home once again with us. She is now peacefully sleeping in her crate...content to be with her family once again.
You can go to the link above on Youtube and see Ginger in a very funny video. She got to hang out with a lot of really cool dogs, and I think she learned a thing or two from them! She sure has better manners. Thank you Logan and the Johnston County street gang!

We ventured to the Millbrook Exchange dog park with her today. She loved running around with all of the other dogs during the work day for the park. She came back to us when it was time to go! I was very impressed!

When we got her home we gave her a very long and soapy bath with Dawn dish washing detergent! She is squeaky clean and smells great. She had a compressed raw hide bone and lots of hugs and pats and some ice cubes too!

Now I have to continue all of her training at home with a firm hand and authority. We will see...I believe I have it in me...I just have to find my pack leader mentality and we will be set!

Welcome home Ginger baby! We missed you so much! Sandy even missed you, I think!

Operation Homefront

Operation Homefront is a great way to show your support for our military and their families! Sandee Lehto, a friend of mine, is running to honor the memory of her Dad, Panther 10, and current deployed military, her brother Wayne, my husband John, a Sunday School buddy, Mitch and others. I can't run with her, cause I don't do marathons, that's for sure! I would like to show my support for her as she is running in October for this marathon. If you would like to support this great cause and feel wary of doing so on line, you can get your donation to me, and I will pass it on to Sandee. Thank you Sandee for supporting all of our men and women in the military and the families that they leave behind to carry on with their daily lives! We appreciate the support! Donations
Hi friends! I'm part of a group of runners who will be participating in the Marine Corps Marathon on October 25, 2009. Please help us to raise money for the families of soldiers who are deployed, as well as wounded warriors returning from active duty.
