Rest In Peace, Ginger Elaine

Rest In Peace, Ginger Elaine


Ginger, If you are reading this from your puppy laptop somewhere in the clouds, I want you to know that you were a good girl. You were the best girl.  We miss you so much already 😦 Though our hearts were breaking yesterday when we had to say Goodbye to you, we know that it was much better for you to not have to feel the pain anymore. Your normal spunk and playfulness was no longer apparent, but we will never forget it; The way you used to trot over to me on the couch and lay your head on my knee; The way you used to sneak into the kitchen when we were in there, almost to say, “Look, no one is around, just slip me a piece of ham”; The way you used to wake up from a nap, all relaxed and calm, only to sporadically throw yourself onto your back and roll around with all four legs in the air in a random fit of excitement – that was hilarious. The thing I will miss the most is how Grandmother-ly you were, especially to Murphy. You would move your big, curvy frame around like you were a puppy again when you would play with him, and would always come to his defense when Makana would get too sassy. And even though it was probably really annoying, you would let Murph lay next to you and chew on your lips and legs forever. Thank you for being so tolerant and patient with Murph, and with Makana for that matter. Thank You for being such a good girl and always making us laugh at your goofy traits and funny looks. Thank You for knowing when we were ever sad or paying attention when we cried – I know that you knew when we were upset because you would take your paw and put it on our legs or arms, and you would look at us like, “Hey, I’m here if you need to talk”. I could almost see you throwing an apron on and going into the kitchen to bake some cookies. You were, like, Grandma Gingey 🙂

We will never forget you, Ginger Elaine. May you find an endless supply of Cheeseburgers and lots and lots of Treats in Doggie Heaven. xoxo

Party On Gingey Pants,

STEP 1: Bring along your personal photographer stud muffin.








STEP 2: Bring along a furry friend of your choice, and let him chase the pigeons.








STEP 3: Go to Stowe Lake (and stop at the Japanese Tea Gardens along the way).








STEP 4: Rent a Row Boat. (Stud muffins do the rowing, Ladies do the sitting pretty.)








STEP 5: Bring the Furryness on the boat.







STEP 6: Float under the bridges to Strawberry Hill. (Do NOT allow your children to stand on the bow of your paddle boats, as the Dad of the Year in this picture did.)








STEP 7: Make Out Oooh and Aaah at the waterfalls.










STEP 8: Row past the Pagoda.








STEP 9: End the date with some ♥ snuggling ♥
