Photos of readers

Today we have a lady and her canid (the asterisk in “d*g” is hers). Meet reader Lorraine:

Here is a photograph of myself with my d*g Ginger. She’s a Chihuahua mix and more like a cat than a d*g. She’s small, very independent and prefers to sleep in the sun all day. Quite the princess, she allows me to serve her breakfast and dinner wherever she happens to be. I have to say I adore her.

    1. She’s very smart, sweet and quiet, believe it or not. She rarely barks, which is unusual in chihuahuas. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Cute dog! I like dogs far more than cats, since they don’t spend their time killing wild animals. Our dog piglet loves rain and cold and wont come in out of heavy storms with 40 MPH winds. If there is lightning, we have to go out drag her into the house. Hopefully she will like winter, with below zero temperatures and snow since, 5 months of cold will soon be here.

    1. I hope your Piglet will like winter. I had a lab mix that *loved* snow. He made troughs with his nose! Best wishes!

  2. Looks like a wonderful life you have with each other! Lucky Ginger to have you and lucky you to have her. Nice she gets to go to the beach too-

    1. We go to Va Beach during the off season. Ginger loves the beach and most of the hotels are pet-friendly, thankfully. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Lovely photo of Ginger & Lorraine – a quiet pairing in a dramatic sky & sea. Ginger looks very comfy wrapped & coddled [dog coat] & tip of tongue out. Lucky to have each other.

    1. I was happy that I clicked and zoomed in on Ginger. He is indeed sticking his tongue out as if in disdain. A very catlike thing to do. I thinks he’s a dog in the catbird’s seat.

      1. Ginger is lucky too, but having such a lovely human ‘mum’ all her life [I suppose you had her from puphood] she doesn’t know it.

        1. I sincerely wish I’d had her from pup-hood but she is a rescue. Fortunately, I know her history and before she was released to the shelter, she had a happy life with an elderly gentleman for her first three years. She was in foster care for a year before I adopted her four years ago. She’s a very special girl. Thank you for your lovely comment. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. It really is the best time to go. D*gs aren’t allowed any other time at this beach and part of the attraction for me is to watch them running all out on the sand and chasing the water. Their joy makes me smile. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you! I’ve been very lucky to have lived with some amazing cats in my day, but this house is too small for a cat box. I do have a big backyard and small dogs, so clean up is much easier. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. “I have to say I adore her.”

    Who can blame you? What a cutie, and your descriptions of her personality adds to her charm.

    In general terms, the photo is very pleasing. Perfect beach/surf/sky and subject.

    1. I’m glad you liked the photo. A very talented friend took it for me. Thank you for your lovely comments about Ginger. I’m very fortunate to have found her. She’s a rescue.

      1. My girlfriend, Ms Lorraine, whose family of
        many has four d*ggies within it, one of which is a
        chihuahua, has stated, including the * to her
        statement, to me thus about yours as well
        as in re hers: “Yes, I am familiar with that
        exact d*g facial expression. Chihuahuas are
        cats stuck in d*g bodies.

        ! hehheh !

        1. LOL!! That’s wonderful and so true! Please thank your girlfriend for sharing her thoughts. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I’m so pleased you liked the photo. I smile whenever I see Ginger in it and am very happy to know you feel the same. Best wishes!

    1. Thank you! Ginger has white socks on all four legs and brown spots on her forelegs, kind of like a spaniel. She’s a unique little princess. ๐Ÿ™‚
