My “Baby Dog” passed away last night.  I expected it, she had been acting quite ill since Tuesday.  It’s hard to lose Ginger, but I am so thankful that she died without suffering, and without me having to make that hard decision.

She was the best dog I’ve ever owned, truly Man’s Best Friend, or in our case, Woman’s Best Friend.  Just in case you wonder, I have always known she is “just a dog”, and never elevated her to human status – well, not too much!  But she was such a great companion dog, and I will miss her.

And don’t worry, B.  I am really all right.

God bless your day…



About Petty Bunch

The Petty Bunch is what we have called our family since Bill and I (Janina) began our family back in the early 1980s. We have gone down many roads together - homeschooling our kiddoes, enjoying the freedom of entrepreneurship many years, working at "real jobs" other years. Through it all, we have been loved with God's everlasting love, and have found that underneath are His everlasting arms! We are blessed to have been married for over 36 years, and have 3 incredible adult children, a wonderful daughter-in-law, an amazing son-in-law, and SEVEN grandchildren: four precious granddaughters, three handsome grandsons - so far. We are empty nesters, still enjoy the life of an entrepreneur and the freedom it gives us to continue enjoying our kids and now, their kids!

    Those who know and love you know what a great loss this is.  You know why I can relate so strongly right now.  I love your sweet note to me, but as you saw, I had to call you to be sure. ha  God is so good to us.  He gave you a precious companion for a long, long time.  When you are ready, he will send you another one.  It can’t replace Ginger but it can help heal your heart.  Pets may be the next best thing to grandchildren. ha  I think Ginger and Oscar just met for the first time and they are romping together.

    @ALDOG1 – You bet they are, and Ginger isn’t coughing, and Oscar isn’t limping!

    ((((((HUGS))))) I understand what a loss this is. Especially when you are dealing with an empty nest, pets become a bit like our furry children…. Just because she was “just a dog” doesn’t mean your heart doesn’t hurt. Allow yourself time to grieve.

    I know she was very special to you, and I know how painful the loss of a pet can be.  I’m sorry for your loss!

  6. Aw, I’m sorry! What a sweet-looking dog. Cocker spaniel’s are such good-natured pets.

    That’s never easy, a pet becomes part of our lives and is missed when they are gone. I haven’t seen a cocker spaniel in a long time, yours was so cute

    @broncomom – I wish you could have seen her when she was younger.  She was such a pretty red, with beautiful, silky fur “feathers” – she didn’t become “woolly” until after I got her spayed.  That played havoc with her hormones, I guess, because her hair was never the same.  She was an English Cocker, so a bit different from the “Lady & the Tramp” version.

    I’m sorry to hear, Mrs. Petty! I hope you have great memories together.

    @chix0rgirl – Kat, it’s so sweet of you to stop by!  She was a great pet!

  11. KatieWatt says:

    I’ve been praying for you Mrs. Nina! Love you!!!!

    Hey Sweet Sister!  I am so sad for you to lose Ginger your precious Mama’s Bad Dog, and yet so grateful for the tender mercy that the Lord showed in letting her go the way she did.  She was finally ready, and in a way, in God’s sweet mercy, so were you.  Isn’t our Lord wonderful?  Isn’t He full of grace?…  I love you so much.  Gen
