Ginger (the dog, not the spice)

I convinced Peter that fostering dogs awaiting adoption would be a good idea in this transitional period AS (after Scooper) and BD (before another dog to be determined). Suddenly last night I got a call from a rescue agency in need of fostering this adorable retriever/spaniel mix (as best anyone can tell). And no, this is not a prelude to my waggish suggestion of a Chinese fortune cookie reading, "Dog, the other white meat." I fetched this guy from a boarding facility this afternoon.

He has two adoption applications in the works and may well be with us only until the weekend.

This may be the first posting of a cartoon in a food blog (it certainly is via my blog). But this one  appeared in The New Yorker quite a few years ago. What makes it more salient is the fact that the adorable pup you see above is named Ginger.

Red! My fave color!

Ginger is a sweetie! It seems like it would be so easy to get attached and then have to let him go. I'm sure he will have the best of care and be a good buddy to have around. How great of you and Peter to do this!

That Far Side cartoon was always spot on, I hated it when they retired it. All of the best comics did, The Far Side, Bloom County, Calvin and Hobbes.....sigh, I'm waxing nostalgic.

Cute dog, fostering would be hard on me, just when I get the relationship, boom, the dog would be getting adopted.
