Christmas pics!

This was our 2nd Christmas with Ginger- so hard to believe! Time flies when you're having fun. She has brought so much joy to our lives. :)
Putting up the tree

We got her the Ginormous Hide-a-Squirrel tree.. she loves it and so far only 2 squirrels have been scalped. I remedied that problem quickly by cutting off their little tufts of hair. Problem solved. lol  She also got some Christmas-y rawhide chews from Grandma and Grandpa. :) She had a very merry Christmas indeed! :)

December 2, 2012

Gosh, I guess I should re-title the blog "Ginger Hardly Any Day" huh? So sorry.. I will try to do better in the future!

Hard to believe as of the 6th Ginger will have been with our family a whole year. It doesn't seem like that long.  Here are a few photos to catch up..

She has taken to sitting behind me on our chaise lounge chair- in this first photo she laid her head between the cushion and my back..

Here are some other examples-

Please excuse the horrible picture of me- I don't usually look this bad- at least I hope not..

Walking in some leaves near our house..

Was so excited today to find this Mr. Bill doll on clearance at Target- I really had been wanting to get her one but they were $7 -$9 and I couldn't see spending even that on something she may (probably) tear up.. well this one was just a bit over $2 so I snatched it up. :)  So far she has only torn his mouth off. He seems pretty sturdy so we'll see how it goes.

Sorry some are so dark- sometimes if I use the flash in our living room they are almost too bright.
Nite nite!

Gin is one!

I know, I didn't post on her birthday.. to be honest we didn't really do much. I know that's bad but we had good reasons.  One, no money really, though she did get some presents the day before. I had ordered her a couple of antlers and a new Kong from Petco and it came in right before her birthday. Also, we never really celebrated our old dog Wolf's birthday.  Even though he was a family dog he was kind of my husband's baby and I didn't want to do something really special and he get upset cause we never did anything like that for Wolf.  But we still tried to make her feel special all day. I was disappointed I didn't have any party hats left from the kids' birthdays or anything. Anyway, on with a pic or two. :)

We have a big chaise lounge chair and Ginger usually sits on it with me at night- but sometimes she just peeks at me from the floor-

And I don't have many pics of Gin collar-less- I am to afraid she will bolt out the door the one time I leave it off.  So here is one- I took it tonight after her bath when she was at her fluffiest. :)

Ginger and the big hoof

We usually get Ginger the small hooves, but the pet store was out, except for the filled ones-and we don't really want to get her those.. so we thought this one would keep her busy for a while. She has gone through the top surprisingly fast- so Rob broke off one of the halves of the hoof and just gave her that.  We're waiting on a Petco order with some antlers and a new Kong cause she finally chewed through the fabric on hers.
Lately she has taken to getting on the back of our chaise lounge chair while I am sitting in it-
she so reminds me of a cat sometimes. :)

I can't believe Ginger is almost one! Just 17 more days..

Helping my son with his homework..

Out of breath after a walk..

Laying between two laundry baskets! Wish this one would have turned out better. But of course she moved shortly thereafter.

The end! (LOL)

"Pretty please?"

Gin and her new friend


A giant tomato that makes sounds like a pig. At least that's what it sounds like to me. lol On clearance at Pet Supplies + so if it gets torn up, no biggie.  Since he's so big hopefully it will take her awhile.. though I've already had to cut his top leaves cause she was tearing them off and chewing on them. Sigh..

I've been bad about blogging again..

So here I am, catching up again.  Last Saturday we drove to Richmond, VA to Bass Pro Shop and took Miss Ginger with us.. she did so well! She was very good on the car ride.  I wanted to do a little cross stitch but that didn't happen because she was only content when sitting in my lap.. tried to get her to sit in my daughter's lap but she wanted her mommy. ♥ So I read a book instead. :)  Here is a picture of her on my lap in the car-

When we got to Bass Pro, we put her in a cart.. having only taken her to the pet store before, which is alot smaller and a lot less walking, we played it safe for a while. Plus I wasn't sure if she would do her business on the floor..
My daughter got a better one of her in the cart- I will try to remember to get it from her and post it soon.  Lots of people stopped to pet her, or comment how cute she was, or tell us about their Corgi. We met quite a few past and present Corgi owners. :)  We were there for quite a while.. later we let her walk on her leash, she was very good and made no messes.. even sat nicely when we were standing there talking to a friend.  She was just as good on the ride home; she would doze here and there but didn't really sleep til we got home.
This isn't her that day, just a cute picture of her sleeping. I like when she crosses her paws. ♥
Here are a couple more pics I've taken recently-
"Please give me some sis!"

Waiting for Daddy to give her some cheese..

I will try to update sooner next time!

Oh I am so bad..

Forgive me for neglecting this blog- it has been a busy month.  Hoping to keep up better now! Here are a few pics to "catch up." :)

I hope I haven't posted any of these yet!
