View Full Version : Ginger's pups -- getting grown up!

27th September 2007, 05:14 PM
I posted this picture from Thelly into the thread for the little girl still seeking a home but I imagine lots didn't see it. It is such a sweet portrait of Ginger's little family that I wanted to post it for everybody to see. The little girl is having a promising home vetted in the next day or two so :xfngr: she will be soon settled in and spoiled! :)


Once more I'd just like to give heartfelt thanks to Thelly and Gerry who as first time fosters not only were willing to take two emergency dogs into foster for me, but stuck by Ginger when it emerged she was not just gaining weight but gaining puppies. :shock: Of course I was mortified! Committing to whelping and raising a litter is a Big Job and Thelly and Gerry showed incredible generosity and very big hearts in being willing and able to take on this task. As we all can see, the puppies are a real credit to them and I am delighted they will see one grow to maturity with Thelly's mum and also, that Ginger has a permanent home with them (even though they initially promised they definitely did not want to keep any fosters :lol:).

From L-R they are the pup staying with Thelly's mum (F), the girl looking for her new home, and the little boy.

It is lovely too that the little boy is going to a friend of a board member and so we will also be able to follow his shenanigans as he grows up. :jmp2::jmp2:

Those are just gorgeous puppies. They look like they're nearly as big as their Mum now :eek: Being Cav/Lab mix I'll bet they grow into wonderful adults.

my gosh!!! They have grown so quickly - aren't they gorgeous!!

:w*w: That went quickly didn't it? As you say all credit to Thelly and her OH for their incredible generosity and love, I am so happy that they are keeping Ginger :lotsaluv: sometimes it's good to be a "failed" foster Mum eh? :lotsaluv:

Thanks so much everyone. It has been such a wonderful journey with this family. From glancing at Ginger asleep one evening and thinking - God she is getting FAT! to sitting on the floor with her as she had her little babies! It's so great that we will get to see one of the girls grow up. Mum is naming her Juliet.

As Karlin said - we were adamant that we would not be failed fosters but with everything Ginger had been through with us I could not bear to have her start again somewhere else. I was delighted that we could keep her. :rah: She is well and truly at home now and demands to sleep on me in the evenings (much to LouLou's dismay!!) But they are all friends now

God to think that last April 12 months ago we had no dogs at all here. Bailey was found dumped in the woods close to our house and we took him in - we took ownership of Lou from a family that were not able to look after her properly (thank God) and now little Ginger. We couldn't be happier! It's so weird that they are all Cavs that have come our way...a calling I think! *ng*l

They are so adorable. Well done Thelly for all your hard work and I'm so glad Ginger has found her forever home with you :D

I, too, just have to say Well Done !!!!!!! We are all going to miss seeing pictures and reading updates on Ginger and her puppies. It has been quite a journey for us all and I know especially for you. But what a happy ending for 4 wonderful dogs. Way to go..........Judy and Dixie

Congratulations Thelly on doing such a superb job of raising the pups - they look wonderful, and I'm so thrilled that we will continue to have updates.

It's fabulous that Ginger can stay with you - I'm sure you have a very special bond now after raising the pups together.

Wishing Juliet and the other pups a wonderful happy future - another happy ending - well really a new beginning.

Just was sent this pic of Goldie in her new home. :l*v: Isn't she a sweetie?

The report form her new family is that she slept through the night without crying, is already going outside to do her business, and they adore her. :)

Yippee - I am so happy to see this pic. I was a little sad yesterday saying goodbye but they were so happy to meet her it made it alot easier seeing the smiles!

Just one left now...little freckle face - off on Wednesday to his new life. I will miss them all.

hi everyone.. here is the little boy. named scampers.

i lent them a cat basket while they decide what type of basket (and what size!) to get for him... he's not going to fit in this one for very long...



5th October 2007, 09:48 AM
He looks so big! I want to give him a big squeeze! Love the name. Can't wait to see him grow B I G G E R!!!

Thanks for the pic!

i visited scampers today. what a cuddly guy - and that lovely puppy smell! he is mad as a hatter puppy like, but actually a very calm dog, he's not barky, he knows his name very well, and often sits calmly.... in this pic he does look big, he's in front of a little 7 year old girl. i'd say he has some growing to do... but don't really think he's going to be huge in the end.

what a bundle of goodness :lotsaluv:

Scampers is a real cutie. :luv:

Hi Scampers!!

It's great to see the pics of him (he was my fav...shh). He looks so big alright. I love his freckly nose.

Thanks for the pics - love to watch him grow up!:luv::luv::luv:

Thelly, he is the most sublime little man. he often sits so calmly you'd think he was much older then approx 10 weeks. and is so cute with that freckly face - i can see why he was a secret favourite... he's certainly mine!

I think young puppies are more than anything the product of the environment they are raised in -- you cantell a good breeder by the temperament of the puppies they home and I really agaon would like to credit Thelly and Gerry who clearly gave a very happy, active, calm home to these rapscallions. Each puppy is in such a great new home too that they can only keep getting better! :lol: Scampers really has a lot of white on him (more than it seemed when he was tiny!) -- interesting that this has become more prominent as he's gotten a bit older. He sure is cute! Ginger sure produced a strapping young son considering how small she is. Thanks for the update post miss d!
