View Full Version : Pingo's Gotcha Day..

12-15-2005, 08:52 PM
We have another anniversary this week. Today marks 3 years since Pingo joined the pack. Pingo came from a musher who just wasn't using her very much anymore. She'd been bumped from his A-team and wasn't really meant to be a distance racing dog. She wasn't ready for retirement though and wasn't happy not working. She was perfect for a recreational team who needed a leader--like mine!
She's a silly girl! Always good for a giggle! Always happy with her tail going a mile a minute!
She loves being on top of her house. She's rarely in it, but that could be because it is full of her treasures--rocks, balls, stolen recycling. If something is missing in our yard, chances are it's in Pingo's house. Stuart has learned not to set his tools down outside! She even stole my camera once!
She's a sweetie!
All the other dogs like her!
Onyx loves her! She's very gentle with the cats, although I think she'd like to herd them sometimes. She has some border collie in her and her herding instincts kick in once in awhile!
She's a good little lead dog, much stronger than she looks!
She always gets the job done although sometimes she insists on doing it her way, not mine!

Happy Anniversary, little one!

Happy anniversary dear Pingo!! You are a very beautiful girl. I love the first photo with the goofy face. Pingo looks amazingly like my Sami that passed away almost 2 years ago.

Glacier, you are such a good mom to your dogs and cats. I also love your photos and scenery. May I move in with you? Thanks for sharing with us.

Happy Gotcha day, sweet Pingo! How I love to hear about a pretty girl with personality. I hope you have an extra special day today.

Glacier, I say this in almost all of your posts, but you're amazing keeping up with all of your dogs' anniversaries, personalities, wants, needs, etc. All of them (cats too) are so lucky to have you!

Pingo is a beautiful girl. Happy Gotcha Day!

The fact that you can remember all these significant days for so many dogs shows how much you love them. I have four and it's easy to remember Birthdays and Gotcha Days, but for you it must be so hard.

Happy Gotcha Day, Pingo!

I just love, love, love the way you describe your special dogs...they are clearly family and reading about them never fails to inspire me. Please consider writing a book about your mushing experiences and how you came to find each and every member of your team throughout the years, I would absolutely adore curling up with Bijou by my side to read it!

Woo-woo, Happy gotcha Day Pingo!

Happy Gotcha Day, Pingo!!! You sure are a pretty girl, I love the picture of her on the bed with Onyx and the two other dogs, she looks so pretty and snuggly. :) What a lucky girl to have found such a great home. :) You are lucky you live so far north Glacier, because I think if you lived closer you would have a whole lot of PTers and their dogs moving in with you. I know Ginger and I would love it.
