Sepia Saturday


Over & Out,



**Bell Fur Zoo Mama Notes**

We were outside visiting Ginger and Matt decided to bask in the sunshine. I was so shocked he let me get from Ginger’s grave all the way to him with the camera and didn’t get up and walk away. My boy hates the flashy thing. LOL

Sepia Saturday

These are the last pictures we took with Sisser.

Mama says we were so sweet her last week. I would stay real close to her and give her gentle kisses (no bites) and gentle taps (no claws). Anytime I would hear Mama crying I would come and give her soft head butts and purrs. I even tried to lick mama's hair and gots it stuck in my mouth a few times!

And brother Matt would come sit close to Mama and give Ginger gentle kisses on her forehead which he rarely does. We call them run by kisses cause he would run up sniff her and give her a gentle kiss then run off. It was really cute. He was also pretty protective of her in the yard too.

We just want to say how blessed we are to have such sweet blogging friends who stop to leave such sweet comments and give us so much love and prayers.

Soft purrs and licky kisses,

One Of The Worst Days Of My Life

Yesterday was heartbreaking, terrifying, bittersweet…any any other word for just plain awful.

My baby girl went to puppy heaven.


Ginger went downhill in a matter of a week and we found out she had liver cancer this past Saturday. All her labs earlier this year came back normal. She still had a sludgy gallbladder but her levels were good and we still suspected a bit of cushings. Her weight had dropped a bit at a time but we all chalked it up to old age. I wish I had seen the signs earlier and really known what to look for but since our furbabies can’t talk I just had no clue. She still did all her favorite things which consisted of eating, swimming, sleeping and eating some more.

I just can’t believe this was last Christmas…


I am broken without her. I just really don’t know how to function right now. Not even sure why I am typing this post….

Maybe its theraputic??

All I can hope is that she met up with my old best friend Malibu


And all of my other fur babies I had as a child/young adult.

and maybe she will get to visit with my Great Aunt Helen who loved her so much and would always play tug of war with her. Ginger never gave up her toy. Winking smile


I will miss her snuggles


and my swimming buddy


and Daddy’s fire buddy


Brad made her the most beautiful grave right out by the fire pit. She loved to sit out there with her Daddy.


We did all her favorite things before she passed. Sat out in the sun and let it hit her face. Ate a #cheeseburger and fries from ickdonalds even though she could only eat a little bit of it. Gave her a nice warm bath in my garden tub so she could feel like she was in the swimming pool. Put on our fire DVD while we snuggled on the floor so she could hear the crackling fire.

She was ready but I would have forever not been ready.

Please keep the prayers coming.

Ginger Crossed Over Rainbow Bridge

Higgins mom here.....

I am so sad to have to share that Ginger ran over Rainbow Bridge this morning. 

 She did indeed have liver cancer and fought the good fight until the very end.  Her mom is so brokenhearted, and we are grieving with her today.  

Ginger was such a spunky and lively girl who loved her mama and her family so very much!

You will be truly missed Ginger Bell!

Right now Ginger is resting comfortably with all her stuffies.

Lastest on Ginger

Higgins mom again.....

******** 1:17pm Update

Ginger is at home and she is resting comfortably!

Thanks for all the prayers!

********12:00pm Update

They pulled a total of 16 cups of fluid from Ginger. She is on her way home.  Prayers that this will help her feel better!!

Higgins Mom again,

Just heard from Gingers mom and she said that they did an ultrasound but couldn't get a good image.  Gingers regular dogter Juli (she out of town) would be able to see better on Tuesday. They drained 1 liter off of her and still have her and are going to drain some more in between patients. The vet said the slides show cells that she said might be liver cancer. They are trying to get her comfortable to get her thru the weekend until Tuesday for her 8:50 appt.

Gingers mom has a splitting headache from crying and she is give out both physically and emotionally.

Please keep praying!

Will update again if there are changes.

Ginger Update

She is resting comfortably in the kitchen sniffing Daddy's black eyed peas.

As of now she has not gotten sick in a while and has not lost her appetite thru her bout of sickness. My girl loves her some food. She seems to be feeling better but we shall see. I have a tentative appointment Tuesday with her regular doctor who is on vacation or I will go tomorrow if she is still not coming around. Hard decisions may have to be made but I am trying to stay positive. There have been a lot of tears these past couple days.

Thank you so much for all the prayers and POTP.

I hope you all had a safe and Happy New Year's Eve and are having a nice New Years Day!

Ginger, Matt & Matilda's Momma
