Profile: I am so happy for this website. I have had dogs and cats my whole life, but became allergic to cats in my 20's. My severe allergies kept me from a career in Vet Medicine. Dog's are the one animal that I don't seem to have a problem with. My allergist can't explain it. I don't let my allergies stop me from volunteering once a week with therapy horses at a local farm. I load up on the allergy meds and go see my favorite horse J.J. and all his friends and work with children and adults with Autism and head injuries. What a reward I'm given to work with such special human's and such giving gentle creatures as J.J. Ginger & Molly are our precious girls that make everything great!!!

Ginger is an Australian Shepard/ Black Lab/ Bassett Hound. She will be 10y.o. this September. Her first 18 months of life did not have much love and caring in them, then my friend Suzi saved her from her neglectful home and called me crying asking if she knew of someone who would be able to take Ginger. Suzi had Ginger's sister Abby, but Abby was alpha female and not very nice to sweet Ginger. My boyfriend took her in and she has a great life on 18 acres in Maine to explore. She is also very close to her grandparents who she decided years ago that Granny is to feed her and when Grampie is not working she follows him around all day. One day Grampie was fixing a steel roof and the pollen made it too slippery to get down. Ginger came down to where her daddy was working and made him follow her to help get Grampie down. She is our smart girl. After Granny & Grampie have had dinner it is time to go home to Mommy, Daddy, her human brother & Canine Sister Molly. The only things that fear Ginger are the squirrels, moles and chipmunks.View Profile
Molly Mae is a Beagle/German Shepard/Black & Tan Coonhound Mix. That hound nose is nothing but trouble!!! We got Molly when she was 10 weeks old. I had wanted a beagle mix for a long time. "What was I thinking?!" When she is not exploring the 18 acres of land we have in Maine she is the most cuddley little girl. When she is content and snuggling she snorts like a pig. Her canine sister Ginger taught her how to go down to Granny's to get fed and loved and spoiled. Grampie calls her Mollykins. You will see in one picture she is cuddling up to a Doberman/Rottie Mix that was her Uncle Worf who passed away a couple of years ago. She drove him crazy, but he loved her so very much. She also misses her oldest human brother since he went off to college, but still has one more human brother home for another year. Her Grammie & Poppa live in the next town over and when she sees them she can barely walk because her tail and tush get wiggling so hard. Poppa calls her his granddogger. She turned five y.o. this mother's day. She is afraid of little dogs, but this past fall she chased a young moose out of our field and into the woods with me screaming noooo behind her. She is definatly a good ole' Maine gal.View Profile
