We have a new family member. Her name is Ginger. She is a 5 month old Red Nose Pitbull Terrier. She is the most loving and mellow dog. We love her SO much. Zero our Pekingese seems very happy to have a friend in the house again. They love to snuggle together on the couch. We got Ginger from a family in Pocatello Idaho. She was one of nine puppies! They had been calling her Bella... Mark said he couldn't keep the name Bella because it was too close to a Disney name and also fed my Twilight addiction... LOL... Plus we have a few neighbor dogs named Bella and that could get confusing. Anyhow ~ It just so happened that my sister and her husband were on there way down from Pocatello to Salt Lake for Thanksgiving when I came across this puppy on We had just watched the movie Marley and Me for the first time as a family and it pulled on our heart strings to have another puppy in the house. My mom whacked me on the head with a menu when we went out to lunch the next day for getting a 2nd dog, but I'm really REALLY happy with our decision. We didn't tell Justin about the puppy. Mark and I wanted to keep it a surprise. We just kept telling him we had something special for him but he had to wait until the end of the day. Justin got a few tears in his eyes with Ginger finally showed up. It was perfect.
