Never knew what breeds she was, nor cared. When I was 10 I had 2 sheep at my grandparents farm, and this little dog to herd 'em... She was my constant companion in all kinds of mischief till I went in the Army at 16. She died while I was on my second tour and I never got to say goodbye to my best friend. I've loved herders ever since her though...

What a sweetheart.  I'm sorry for your loss of Ginger, but it's obvious that she lives on in your heart.

Thank you. It was a long time ago, and I've lost many since, but she is the reason I still give time and love to a new herder today.
