My dog Ginger, been with me for almost 10 years, through thick and thin. I have left her with others many times, once for 6 months due to work, and she took me back with a smile. She had blown knees and miraculously recovered when I didn't have money for a rebuild kit for her. House defender. Truck Defender. Loves cats. In her mouth. Best dog a man could ask for. No she didn't pass on, just a well deserved salute. Pic taken by my lovely lady Monika.
