Ginger is showing signs of becoming a valued member of our household. She actually does very well at recognizing her name. She will generally (though not always) come when called. She is getting big.
We have tried walking her but when she does not want to do something she shows it in no uncertain terms. She will simply lay down and refuse to move. We can stand her on her feet – but she will simply lay down again. We can try dragging her by her leash – but she will refuse to get up.
One thing we have noticed is that she will walk when there is another dog along. Today, Glenda is walking her with Buddy and Michelle. Buddy is a Golden Retriever which Ginger enjoys playing with. We shall see.
