What a good day! It was warm(ish) at 50 degrees and sunny (waaaaay better than the 10s-20s we’ve had!) and we got to hang outside for a couple hours with lots of treats! She even hopped around the yard to explore. Then she got a nice ham dinner! Now she’s happily snoring away in bed with her tongue hanging out. <3

Someone gets especially happy during snack time! It’s hard to believe that 7 months ago we were told Ginger has less than 3 months to live. Now she’s almost 15 years old, and with 4 months as a tripawd she’s just as full of life as she ever was!

Winter is here!

This video sums up how much Rico LOVES HIS GINGER>IMG_4212

And now…WINTER IS HERE. Ginge isn’t thrilled but she’s dealing well! We had enough snow that the pups basically compacted it down into a snow ramp for her, buuuuuut one “warm” day of 37 degrees melted that. If only she’d use the ramp we bought. But she’s stubborn and prefers to hop down the 2 steps. She manages them well though! She even made the lengthy trip from the door to the middle of the yard through a foot of snow to play with us! All on her own!!!

One of my biggest worries over a minor thing when we found out she’d need amputation was whether she’d be able to eat chew treaties. She used to hold them between her paws and go to town. Well, I shouldn’t have worried. NOTHING comes between Ginger and her food!

So basically, life has been pretty good! Everyone is happy and healthy! Roxy the drama llama has taken to wearing my snuggie around the house and cracks us up constantly. Rico has been busy loving on Ginger as much as possible, and relaxing in front of the fireplace when it’s quiet time.

We’ve got lots of fun milestones coming up: Roxy’s 3 year rescueversary is next week (she was supposed to be a 15lb max part Chihuahua…LOLNO. She’s now 50lb!) April 1st is Ginger’s 15TH BIRTHDAY, and May 15 is Rico’s 3 year rescueversary! I’ll post lots of pics to keep everyone updated!


Staples removed!

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Ginger’s scar took a little longer than expected to heal up, but she finally got the staples removed last night (3.5 weeks since surgery) and got the all clear from our vet! We celebrated by getting BBQ takeout and she got to enjoy some! She’s doing so much better than we expected. She still has some weaker days, and she’s gotta take it easy, but overall she’s made amazing progress! It’s crazy to think that exactly 3 months ago yesterday we were told by a previous (not very good) vet that she only had 3 months to live and “just love her and put her down when it’s time”. Our new vet was incredible at explaining the options, how the recovery would go, and even referred me to this site! So happy our girl is still with us.
