Welcome to the Family, Ginger

Two weeks ago, I had talked about Miga, our neighbor's dog who loves to visit us everyday. It came to a point that most of her time was spent here with our pack rather than her supposed family.

I've also mentioned to Yuki and Rocket's mom that Miga was badly hurt by her owner. Her leg was twisted and she was limp on that leg for more than a month. 


Our neighbor is pretty giving when it comes to her pets. She isn't exactly the responsible owner type. So one day, she tells my mom that in exchange for  $2.50, she was going to give us Miga because she needed to buy food to feed her kids.

I've already expressed my liking to Miga. She's, miraculously, one smart puppy. She learned the sit trick within minutes. I guess it's because coming from a home who doesn't give her much affection, she's was too eager to please. She also has pretty almond shaped eyes.

So today- that would be one and a half week ago- I am officially welcoming Miga into our home. My boyfriend changed her name to "Ginger".

  8. @Everybody: Hey Guys! Thanks for welcoming, Ginger. We got her vaccinated last week and she was very brave. I was also a little worried as she seemed to have had bloody diarrhea which disappeared after 2 days of giving her vitamins.

    She's also learned to walk without us having to pull her too much. She's really smart, especially since she started hanging out here knowing we'd welcome her(*^_^*)

    Lol, I still call her Miga sometimes because I'm used to it but thankfully she does respond to both names.

    I couldn't reply to each and everyone because I have a problem with my right eye.

    Huggies and Cheese,

  11. Looks like Miga/Ginger has struck oil! She's one lucky doggie, I reckon.

    Hope your eye gets better, Haopee x

  12. Glad Miga came to your home. I am still amazed when I hear of someone treating their dog so poorly. I can't imagine what they are thinking...but I guess I can imagine what they aren't.

    Happy Mischief Monday!

  13. Hey everyone, I'm finally feeling better. I've been sleeping almost half of the day so that my eyes can rest and I'm also back to using my eyeglasses.

    And yes, some people do still treat dogs this way and even worst sometimes. A friend of mine have told me how she recalls having one of the dogs in her neighborhood being badly battered and killed just for them to have finger food.

    I'm just happy Ginger likes living here with us. She seems to have gotten accustomed to it now.

    Huggies and Cheese,
