Ginny is in her little puppy bed that she's too big for because she is completely jealous that her BRAND NEW BABY BROTHER was taking a liking to it. That's right, Ginny is a big sister now. We found a little corgi mix at the local shelter. He is about 6 months old and was transfered from another shelter in Kansas. We're trying to think of names for him, and I know this is lame-o, but we have a "theme" of Harry Potter names, so if you have any good ideas... so far I'm torn between Arthur, Cedric, Charlie, and Godric. He is mixed with something little - I think he might be a co-jack (corgi/jack russell), but he is a total love and very sweet. Ginny is tolerating him as best she can, as long as he doesn't look at: her bed, her water dish, her food, her bones, her toys, her mom, her butt, etc... but I think the relationship is off to a good start. He is trying desperately to get her love and approval and is pretty submissive to her, which is perfect. He is pretty well-mannered, walks well on a leash, and has so far been friendly with the people/children/dogs he has encountered.
Here is Ginny meeting her brother at the shelter for the first time. Ginny is on the right and the puppy is on the other side of the door.
It was all fun and games, until we brought him home and now she realizes he is going to be sticking around.
Ginny will get over it... eventually.
