Meet Ginny Gump Weasley Glenn...

Please meet our newest friend...
Ginny Gump Weasley Glenn

Ginny wandered up to David last Monday at OzWorks, our friends scenic production company. We originally named her Toto (from Oz), which proved too difficult to say. Then David and I were discussing Forest Gump, and the name Ginny came up. I, of course having just finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, had Ginny Weasley on the brain. So she is named after the girlfriends of two of the most unlikely heroes in literature.

We decided to foster her until she found a better home. Now, six days later, I'm not sure that she will be going anywhere. If she does go, it will be to a very close friend or family member. She's having too much fun here. And she has figured out how to use the dog door, which is installed at the proper height for our other three 60+ pound dogs.

And what do the other dogs think? Chica is mildly frustrated with the task of reasserting her position of Alpha female. Calvin has no room in his life for puppies, but I have a sneaking suspicion that he likes her. Winni agrees to Ginny crawling on her and interrupting her couch time, as seen below.
Sorry that those last ones are blurry, but I thought that you might want to see them for scale.

I'm not sure how this will all turn out, but I'll keep you posted. Wish us luck!
