The One on February 10

Some of you may remember this day two years ago. It was a very sad day in our house. We said goodbye to Ginger before she left for the bridge. This was the hardest day in both mom's and papa's lives.

We miss her every single day. But there are moments and days when we KNOW she's watching over us.

Today was one of those days. Originally mom had her "big" ultrasound scheduled for February 17 but the office called to move the appointment to February 10 because of scheduling. My mom's not too quick so the other day, the significance of that date dawned on her.

We can't help but think that Ginger is still taking care of us. This time by possibly having a paw in the rearranging of the schedule so that we would now have a wonderful memory of this day too.

Today we found out that in just a few months, we'll be having a baby BOY two-legger!!

Can you believe it?? My very own boy to play with and watch over. Cali is the most excited of course but I'm a pretty close second. Mom finds me checking out the progress on the nursery every afternoon and evening. I won't bore you with those details. Mom has that on her much less interesting blog along with 87 pictures from the ultrasound today. Poor kid - already hounded by the puparazzi!


  1. How wonderful to turn a sad day into one of great joy!!! Congrats on the boy baby-to-be! Mom loves looking at ultrasound pics - they are fun to try to figure out, so she says:)

    All the best to Mom and baby boy!!!

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

    PeeS. Zona you will have to learn to dodge the upchuck, my Sammy dog learned the hard

  22. Woo need to get together with Nanook and Pooka - they have a brother on the way too

    Plus, their mom has a blog your mom might like to read too!

    Of khourse, a brother is much better than a khytty!


  23. Hmmm, I didn't realize your mom had her own blog. Will have to check your profile and see if I can find it under that. I'd love to read the details of the impeding baby.

    Congrats on having a boy two-legger around in just a few short months! I have a feeling Miss Ginger really did work her magic so the date of her death wouldn't always have that impending sadness around it.
