A self portrait by Ginger: `I may look like a Chihuahua but I''m really a Lab trapped in a Chihuahua''s body!!!

Last night volunteer took me home for a sleepover. I loved it! She drove me to her house in her car. I was really good and just lay down on her lap. When I got to her house I was soooo excited because she has carpet and I like to roll around on that stuff! Then she brought out a tennis ball, my FAVORITE toy in the whole wide world. We played fetch for 45 minutes. I just couldn''t stop bringing the ball back and dropping it in Christina''s lap, over and over and over.

Then we went to this place called Beer Thirty and there was another volunteer there. She brought me a blanket since it was cold out there. I met a few other dogs. We sniffed each other and then I went back to my blanket. Back at Christina''s, it was cuddle time. I slept the whole night without a sound. The next morning the only thing I wanted to do was play more fetch!! I had a great time. I was very good, made sure I never had an accident in the house. I know I will make someone very happy, someone who loves to play and cuddle and go for walks and just wants a super cool pup. And I won''t cost much in toys because all I need is a tennis ball. I''m small so you can take me anywhere, I don''t really beg, and I''m house trained. What more could you want??`
