July 19th- Animal/Insect/Pet

I’ve already posted several pictures of my cats on here, so I decided to give my favorite puppy ever some love. This is Ginger, my dad’s Chow Chow. My dad brought her home on a whim one day when I was in 3rd grade, and I was petrified. When I was really little, like 1st or 2nd grade, a big, black lab came up to our bus stop and was running around us in circles, and even followed us onto the bus. At the time, not having been around dogs much, I was scared to death. I was always really little so he was huge to me. So, when my dad brought a dog home without telling or asking anyone, I wasn’t too thrilled. However, I grew to love that puff ball so much. Unfortunately, she bit my brother on two separate occasions. I witnessed both of them, and my brother was antagonizing her and trying to get her excited, but my mother still made her go live with my dad (since he was moved out at that point). Ginger lived to be 18 years old, which was amazing considering Chow Chows usually have a life expectancy of about 13-15 years. My dad and stepmom just had her put to sleep last August. She was just so old and in pain that they couldn’t bare to see her like that, which I can understand. I do miss her, though. And if it weren’t for her, I still might not care for dogs!
