Kim Crenshaw and Ginger

Ginger, Labrador Retriever, CD, CDX, CGC, TDI. . . and 1/2 of a JH
November 1988 - February 2001

Ginger earned her first CD leg with a 2nd place in Novice A at Kim's first obedience trial in 1989 and went on to complete her CD with no NQ's, several placements and a few legs to spare, finishing at 15 months. She earned her CDX in 5 trials at 2 years old in 1990. The team took a break while Kim's daughter Lauren was born in 1991. In 1992, Ginger began Utility training, was fun matching in 1993 and began showing in 1994. She also earned two Junior Hunter legs during that time, but took a break from training for hunt tests to concentrate on Utility. Unfortunately, Ginger was hit by a car the day after the first trial of the fall season in 1994, ending her obedience and hunting careers. After extensive orthopedic surgery and 5 months crate confinement, she recovered from her injuries enough to become a fabulous companion and continue her Therapy Dog work and has become a frequent visitor at the Training Center. A photograph of her doing the Retrieve Over the High Jump became part of the logo for the Obedience Training Center.
