My name is Ginger and I am a 12 year old Golden Retriever and the love of my pawrents lives. I was diagnosed with osteosarcoma on March 29, 2010. My right rear leg was amputated on April 15, 2010. Now, I am cancer free and hoppin' through life.

Goodbye, Sweet Ginger. We love you.

Sunday, March 3rd, 2013

We are heartbroken to report that our sweet Ginger has lost her battle with cancer.  We said goodbye to our sweet Tripawd Warrior Princess on February 4, 2013, and have been too sad to report before now.  As sad as we are, we find solace in knowing that Ginger was one of the lucky ones.  She […]

Hi, everypawdy!!  I’m still here despite my pawrents not having time to post lately.  Anyway,  a few weeks ago on April 15, 2012, I celebrated my 2 year ampuversary.  That’s right – 24 months without my stupid old back right leg and 24 months cancer free!!!!  Can you believe it?  I am now three days away from […]

Election Day and an Ampuversary!!

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

I am sorry I haven’t been around as much lately to keep in touch with old friends and welcome new ones.  That should all change after Tuesday, when (hopefully) things will slow down a bit around here.  As many of you know, my Daddy is running for State Rep. here in Illinois, and this Tuesday, […]

I’m a political super star!!

Saturday, February 18th, 2012

Well, as some of you know, I live in a political family.  My Daddy has been on the City Council in my home town for the last 9 years and he is now running for State Representative here in Illinois in the 106th District.  I don’t like it sometimes because both of my pawrents are […]

Hello, my friends! Not much new to report, but we wanted to tell you all that today is my 21 month ampuversary!! We all feel so blessed to be closing in on 2 years. Other than that, I have been busy playing in the snow. Illinois winters are bad but believe it or not, I […]

Happy 20 Month Ampuversary to Me!!

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

Hey everypawdy!  Let me first apologize for not updating everybody for so long.  It is just that there hasn’t been much to report.  Plus, between my Mommy’s surgeries and getting back to work (she is doing great, by the way.  No headaches!!) and my Daddy’s campaigning all over Central Illinois, we haven’t had a lot of […]

I Get to Play Nurse Again …

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

Well, that silly Mommy is at it again. I think she is trying to win some crazy surgery contest. I don’t want any more of my body parts taken, so I guess I will let her win. Mommy is having head surgery again – on Friday, April 22. Daddy said we can’t call it brain […]

Tax Day?? Oh No – It’s Ginger Snap Day!!

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

Since I am your Attorney General Ginger Legal Pants, as appointed by our Fearless Leader Sooper Clown Cooper, I proclaim this day, April 15, to be Ginger Day!!  I don’t know if I have the power to do so, but I’m not one to be shy, so I say I do. Why the celebration you may […]

The Good, the Good and the Guilty …

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

We haven’t posted in a long time because between the holidays and recovery time, we haven’t had much spare time. But that doesn’t mean that we haven’t been checking the website and keeping up with all of you. First, the Good.  Mommy is healing up really well from her second surgery she had on Dec. 10.  […]
