Grinning Ginger of Ginger's Treats finally was able to squeeze in an interview for the Cascadian Nomads Pet Adventure Blog on her busy schedule. I think I was chosen to do the interview because the rest of the Cascadian Nomads knew I would keep my cool when faced with such a famous dog. Plus I always want to know more about an adorable dog who gets to have her smiling face on delicious bags of certified organic dog treats.
When Ginger was contacted me about scheduling the interview, I invited her to my house. It was supposed to be a rainy day but fortunately I got to show her around my yard. Ginger also got a tour of all of my favorite places to relax- my bed, the chairs and the couch. I think she approved because she was very open and forthright when it came time to answering some of my telling questions:
G: My human feeling the need to use a bag to pick up my poop. She uses all organic ingredients in my treats – why can’t it be left to fertilize? But, my human insists.
W: Besides treat testing, what are your hobbies?
G: Writing: I tweet and I have a blog. Watching the puppy specials on Animal Planet. But, my most favorite thing is lying on the couch, laying on my owners bed, laying anywhere... Then walks through my neighborhood. Followed by lying on the couch, laying on my owners bed, meeting fans and then more napping.
W: If you were to write the story of your life, what would you title it?
G: Puppy Mogul: My life as a taste tester. Though, my mom might tell you we should title it: Bossy Pants.
G: Going to a pet store without a leash. I have ideas in my brain that need to be shared! I don’t take humans to Target and then tie them up.
W: What is your favorite place in the whole world (this can be a fantasy place you may love only from photos or descriptions)?
G: Cannon beach, Oregon. The sand seems endless and I like the wind in my face.
W: What is you favorite place close to home (this is somewhere you have been and could conceivably go to right now)?
G: I love the parks in West Seattle. Whether its Lincoln Park, West Crest, Alki or the many other trails mom takes me on. West Seattle is such a great place to grow up.
During Ginger's visit, she and I were rudely interrupted by Amelia trying to get a peak at the visiting celebrity and to ask a few questions of her own. I was chosen to do the interview but Amelia still managed to sneak in one question. I think you can tell by Ginger's answer that she was swayed by Amelia's inexperienced interviewing skills:
A: What's your theme song?
G: Smelly Cat by Phoebe Buffay
