Ginger’s owners, Scott and Barb posted the news on Ginger’s Facebook page on Tuesday March 19.  The cancer was aggressive and came without warning.

“Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers and for letting us share our wonderful pups with you. Ginger’s cancer was very aggressive and she was declining rapidly. We couldn’t let her suffer anymore, and with the help of a veterinary oncologist made the decision to put her down this afternoon. Our family is heartbroken, but we know she ran up to heaven on the wings of your prayers and well wishes. Thank you all for your support. Many of you mentioned you have gone through it before or going though it now. Our hearts are with you. It has been a cold and snowy few days here in Michigan. We took Buddy for a walk a bit ago and the wind got really strong and we looked up and suddenly the sun peaked through the sky, just for a little bit. We like to think that was Ginger lighting up heaven with a grand entrance! Thank you again for your support and friendship.
With deepest gratitude,
Scott and Barb ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥”
