They arrived around 11:30. I knew I liked them, the instant that we greeted and welcomed this super nice, friendly couple, to our rescue ranch.
We visited outside for a few minutes. They told us that they were wanting to adopt a medium-sized, female dog and if they adopted one of our dogs, she would have a 1/2 acre fenced in yard to play in, that she would be a house dog and sleep with them, on their bed, as long as she would get along with their small dogs and grandchildren. Then we took off to give them a tour of our rescue ranch.
We started on Ben Stiller's & La Toya's side of the ranch and when they met beautiful Lois Lane they fell in love with her, but they still wanted to check out the rest of our dogs, before making any decisions.
While we walked around the rescue ranch, they told me that they don't have a problem with Pit Bulls, and the man said, "We love Pit Bulls. They are such great dogs. It's people that make them bad." And Tony and I totally agreed with them.
When we were winding up the tour, the last dog that we introduced them to was sweet Ginger. As they petted Ginger, I jokingly whispered, loud enough for them to hear, "Turn on your charm, Ginger. This could be it." Ginger totally understood my words, because she immediately became much more charming if that is at all possible, as Tony and I continued to brag about her being such a fine dog.
A few minutes later, the husband asked his wife, "Which one do you want to adopt?"
She was still petting beautiful Ginger and she turned around, and said, "This one. I think we should adopt Ginger. She is...." Then I jumped into Kermit and said, "I'll go do the paperwork and be right back."
Then her husband remarked, "I need to go up there to get our car and drive it up here to Ginger's pen." So I invited him to hop inside Kermit and go with me. He jumped in.
After I had finished doing Ginger's adoption papers, I walked outside and our dear friend Jim, "The Mineral Man" was walking up our steps. We had talked earlier about him coming over, around noonish, to drop off a Nascar book for me to read and a couple of jars of his delicious, homemade, canned, pickled peppers for Tony. "Hi Jim!"
"Jim, Ginger has just been adopted. Why don't come with me, so you can go meet this really nice couple. I really like them and...."
After we had introduced everybody the woman filled out Ginger's adoption papers.
