Ginger and her friend Alfie prepare for the Iditarod dog sled race.
This worked for about 2 seconds, then Alfie would take a break and get run over by the skateboard. Ginger can pull the board and rider by herself, but at a speed that rivals standing still...

As I was trying to get Ginger to hold still so I could take a picture of her with a golf ball in her mouth, she decided it would be a great time to play a game I like to call "run away from Dad". Seen here is actually a popular variation on the game called "run away from Dad while holding something in my mouth".

Happy Easter from Ginger!
Ginger didn't mind the ears too much, but Mochi didn't feel the same way.
Sorry, no dyed eggs for us this year. Somewhere in there we got a little busy and didn't get too it. Ginger doesn't seem to mind.
Kat, who is pretty handy with a sewing machine, is making Ginger's easter present (a new dog bed) right now. So, along with some bags of treats, she's going to make out pretty well.

Ginger Learns to Wave

She hasn't got the elbow-elbow, wrist-wrist of the Queen yet, but she's getting there.

Ginger has Eye Surgery

Well... eyelid surgery at least.
Ginger had some rouge eyelashes that were growing on the inside of her eyelid, which isn't the best place for eyelashes, especially when your eye makes up 90% of your face. The lashes were causing repeated eye infections and starting to make a nasty white spot on one of Ginger's eyes.
Luckily we already knew of a dog opthomologist up in Portland that was able to do the surgery. But since we're down in Klamath Falls, she spent the week with both sets of grand-pug-parents, which was just fine with them. We missed her very much while she was gone and now dread the day we have to send her off to college.
When she returned, she had to wear the cone for a couple of days, but she didn't let eight inches of plastic around her head slow her down. She had fun shoveling snow with it, so much so next winter we're going to hire her out to plow our neighbor's driveways.
Things are pretty much back to normal now. The winking is gone, the swelling is down, and the white spot is fading, which all points to a very successful surgery.

Dance Ginger, Dance

We sometimes hear strange noises coming out of Ginger's room after we put her to bed, but every time we check on her, nothing is out of the ordinary. So we hired a film crew to capture the action. We were shocked to see what was going on though, frankly, not surprised.
