Ginger the Miniature Poodle – Pittsburgh Pet Photography

I can’t think of a better way to spend Memorial Day weekend than with Ginger, a 12-year-old miniature poodle, and her mom Rodlyn.

Several years ago, FurKid Rescue saved Ginger from a high kill shelter in West Virginia, and it wasn’t long before Rodlyn fell  in love with this sweet senior. In June of 2015, Ginger was officially welcomed into her forever family, which includes three cat siblings.

“I saw Ginger’s picture on Petfinder and was smitten at first sight!  I had to meet her.  After sending a few questions to the rescue, I then went about the application process.  The next day we had our meet and greet.  Ginger stayed with us over the weekend, and we officially welcomed her to our family that next Tuesday.”

“At the time of her rescue, she was 10-years-old and pregnant,” adds Rodlyn. “Shortly after she had her puppies, she was diagnosed with diabetes. She has her blood glucose checked twice daily and is a trooper when getting her insulin shots.”

For Ginger’s session, Rodlyn and I headed to South Park near the Maple Springs Gazebo. The dreary morning clouds broke just in time for our session, giving way to the perfect evening light.

Rodlyn’s only request was a photo of Ginger’s head tilt, which is one of her favorite traits. A few mentions of “Grammy” and “zucchini” (playfully pronounced zucch-a-nee-nee) and it was game-on for this girl.

“[We love] her immensely,” says Rodlyn. “It is hard to believe that she’s a senior, diabetic. She’s a tiny dog with a huge personality!”
