Our Ginger girl has had many challenges during her 13 years. She herself was challenging since the age of 6 weeks. We tried to have her sleep in a play pin only to find her trying to crawl out and get stuck on the netting at 2:00 a.m. To her barking at any other dog that would come in her path (except her sister Gracie).|
She was a protector. She was a Chihuahua and Corgi mix, who at first had floppy ears as a puppy but soon her trademark was all ears! Lol! She was so loving and would love to snuggle with us. She loved riding in the car, taking walks and playing tug of war with her sister.
As she got older, at 8 years old, she was diagnosed with SARDS disease and lost her sight. She adapted very quickly but it changed her energy level and ability to play. She still liked to ride in the car and take walks in the park.
Towards her later years, at 12-13 years, she started to lose her hearing and had cognitive memory issues. Though she still wanted to "go bye-bye," it was a struggle, so we invested in a doggie stroller and she was in love!
When we had to make the decision to let her go and say our final goodbyes, we took her for one last stroll around the park. This was one of the hardest things we had to do but she had multiple health issues at this time, and it was no longer a quality of life. We are so grateful for the years we had with her, challenging or not but most of all her unconditional love for us. We will miss her kisses, bark and her snuggles. We will reunite with her again but wanted to thank her for being our fur baby and such an amazing part of our lives! Until we meet again, we love and miss you dearly...our Ginger girl!
