Gorgeous Ginger


From the Soldier:
I first met Ginger when she a little younger and had walked onto FOB. Somehow, she made it through the area where the undisciplined Polish trained drug and explosives dogs populate near the entry gates. Ginger clumsily stumbled into the compound where I live and has been kept here since her arrival. She was scared, hungry, and exhausted. We did not and still do not have any dog food, thus we get an extra plate from the Dining Facility when possible. Although Ginger DID NOT like pork (like most Afghans), she loves it now! We tried to get dog food for Ginger but it seems dog food is not really a choice at the bazaar.

Everyone visiting the compound just loves Ginger. She has really come out of her shell and plays most of the day. It's been getting hotter here lately though, thus she finds cool places to rest in the shade during the day. We did have a set back whenswe received the first Indirect Fire of the year. Ginger cowered under the tent platform for three hours. It took alot of coaxing to get her out from under the platform and she is still a little gunshy with loud noises, especially outgoing or registration fires.

I am hoping to take Ginger home to America because she deserves a normal life for a dog. Afghanistan is a terrible place for some people to live, much less an innocent puppy. I had intended to find a home for a puppy once I returned from my deployment anyway, thus why not save an Afgan dog from eating trash and a life of creulty in the process? My job keeps me extremely busy, but others would come to the compound play with her. Unfortunately, mission has dictated for my friends/co-workers to travel to other FOBs and Ginger has been a bit lonely here lately. I have a home in Maryland and if I am able to bring Ginger to America, I will find a another puppy playmate for her. I work many hours in a non-deployed environment as well and I don't want to leave Ginger alone for that long of a time during the hours of the day. She is the sweetest puppy and deserves a good life.
