British Royalty get official birthday portraits so why shouldn't the Queen of The Horde has an official portrait as well? Today is Ginny's (Cardiridge Red Ginger 'Spice') 12th birthday. To celebrate, UHM and I took her up to the community pond in our subdivision to take some pictures. Then we brought her home to have soft serve ice cream with the rest of the family. Gin is aging really well. She's just starting to show signs of stiffness in her joints and it seems she's probably lost some hearing but, like many red heads, she's aging well. Hard to believe this girl didn't finish her championship but she made it clear fairly early on that she didn't really want to be a show dog.
Pretty darn good stack for a girl who never got a single point!

About Me, UHM and The Horde
Me: I'm a 40-something dog mom. I never intended to live with five dogs and a cat, it just happened. Funny thing is, I can't imagine living any other way.
UHM (Understanding House Mate): She didn't even have a dog when she was a child. FIVE dogs and a cat!?!? Now you know why she's understanding. She loves the dogs as much as I do. The cat, not so much.
The Heathen Horde: Sam, Ginny & Moira are the original Horde members. In the last two years Bogey & Georgia have been granted full membership status. Everyone is red & white - that way the neighbors aren't sure how many dogs we have :)
