Sorry for the blogging slackage! I was sick. I mean really sick. For more than 2 weeks I suffered under the oppression of a system-wide viral infection and a secondary bacterial infection. Yey. Lots of soup, sleep and a smattering of antibiotics (you know how sick I have to be to take any medication...).
But that's all over, and now I'm playing catch up... slooooooooowwwwwwwwwwly.
Top of the list is our new foster baby, Ginger.
Ginger is a 3-4 year old Labradoodle and Terrier mix. I'd bet money she's part Airedale. She weighs about 50 pounds, but she could stand a bit of meat on her bones.
Her background: Ginger was a stray, running in a little dog gang with another pup. They were picked up by the County when they cornered and killed a cat. The shelter cleaned this beauty up and put her in foster care... where she got ahold of a rabbit and sent it to heaven. In other words, this is a dog who knows how to catch her own meals and should only go to a home free of tasty prey (no cats, rabbits or chickens running around).
So now Ginger is fostering with us, and she's currently stretched out on the floor by my side.
And the awesome part is that she loves other dogs as much as people. She had to spend one night in the shelter between her two foster homes, and she leapt the wall between "cells" and spent all night snuggling the dog who was staying there.
