My Christmas wish

To the Editor:

While doing a little shopping at the mall this week, I decided to stop in and see Santa Claus.  Being 54 years old, I felt a little weird since I hadn't been to see him since I was about 8.

I took my place in line, waiting my turn, feeling a little guilty because there were a lot of small children behind me waiting, too.  I just had to see him; it was really important.

As I approached Santa, he looked at me with that twinkle in his eye, making me feel like I was 8 years old all over again.  We had a little visit, then he asked what I wanted for Christmas.

I leaned over and whispered in his ear that my only wish for Christmas was to find Ginger a "Forever Home.”

After asking about Ginger, he explained that he had many children wanting puppies but couldn't think of anyone that wanted an adult dog. He told me he'd check his list, twice if he had to, to see if he could help.

So, while I'm waiting for Santa to check his list, I thought I would tell you about Ginger.

Ginger is a small tan and white hound, maybe three or four years old.

She was found in March 2013, in Partridge Run in Berne.

Ginger is very sweet; she loves giving kisses and hugs.

She is very energetic. I highly recommend that she have a fenced in yard to run around in. My experience with any type of hound is that, if something moves, they are off and running after it.

Ginger truly deserves to have a forever home and a family of her own to love.

Her adoption fee is minimal; it covers her vet fee and shots.

If you think you can give Ginger a "Forever Home," feel free to give me a call at 797-5201.
