Sirius of the Week for April 2 - 8, 2000.
Ginger is an 80 pound Boxer. She is about 8 1/2 years old and has
lived with her family since she was a puppy.
Ginger will happily eat anything, including fruit -- even grapefruit,
but she doesn't like to eat when
she is home by herself, so she'll wait until someone gets home. Ginger
also misses her sister Carissa terribly when she goes to school;
Ginger will wait, with her chin on the windowsill, looking for
Carissa to come home.
Ginger is very friendly and has a good disposition. She loves kids
in general, not just her sister. Ginger loves to play fetch and to
go out in the snow. She is also well behaved in the house and doesn't
chew on anything.
She sleeps next to the bed at night -- she would sleep on the bed
if she were allowed. One time when her grandmother was taking a
nap, Ginger hopped up and stretched out alongside. At first her
grandmother didn't realize it was Ginger and wondered who had decided
to take a nap with her.
Ginger is also very protective. She will bark to alert her family
if there is a stranger approaching and her hair will stand up on her
back, making her look fierce.
