Ginseng’s October Adventures

My moms told me I grew a lot this month. I don’t think I have. My shadow is still the same height as me and it is SO fun to play with. They also told me I’m doing so well in public. They think I’m being good when I lay under tables in class or at restaurants but really I’m just so tired from growing so much. I also got new treats this month and they are extra delicious, I come running to my moms as soon as I hear the bag open. Sometimes I get big pieces and sometimes I get small pieces but they all taste so good that I don’t even care how big they are. This month I also saw so many kids. Kids are great cause they’re like human puppies. They’re my size and they love to play with me. Sometimes they pull my ears but I don’t mind because I love meeting new friends. I also got new toys this month. They have really helped with my chewing habits. I sometimes even go to chew my toys before I chew my moms or the furniture! Chewing has been hard though cause all my teeth keep falling out of my mouth. Sometimes I lose teeth when I’m eating and I think I swallow them. Other times, I lose them when I’m chewing my toys and they fall on the ground or into my moms hands. My moms say the tooth fairy will come because all my teeth are falling out. I do not know what this means but I’m very excited.

This month I also went to a very fun obedience class with two of my moms. I had to ride in the car for a long time but once I got there I was very very excited. There were so many puppies just like me! One puppy was afraid of an owl statue but I was not. I marched right up to it because it was my new friend too! Guess what else… My brother was at the class! His name is Dandelion and he is a good boy just like me. After the meeting I even got to go to the pet store! There were so many cool animals there. My favorite was the bearded dragon. They are tiny and fast, just like I used to be!!

My moms also told me that a holiday called Halloween was this month. I don’t know what that means but they put cat ears on me and I was not happy. I am not a cat!!! How humiliating.

Overall I had a great month. I learned a lot and my moms say I’m getting better every day. I won’t lie, I still love chewing my moms and chewing the furniture, but I am trying my hardest because the worst thing is when my moms are disappointed in me. I don’t like the look they give me when I do something wrong. It’s like I hurt them. Also I don’t like when they stop giving me the good treats. I will do anything for the good treats.

Love and tea,




Meet Me- Ginseng

Hi guys, I’m Ginseng!

I am a 4-month-old Goldendoodle from the Tea Litter at 4 Paws for Ability. 4 Paws is a super cool service dog agency in Xenia, Ohio. They take dogs like me and turn them in to super-hero working dogs!!! You might remember my half-brother, Snickerdoodle, who was here last semester. He is now a full-fledged working dog living in Texas!! I am so proud of him.

Enough about Snickerdoodle, lets talk about me. I arrived at Wooster a few days before classes started, fresh out of the puppy house. College is great!! So many new friends and places to go- I am never ever bored. By the way, the puppy house is at 4 Paws and it is where all puppies live until they get fostered. Most puppies go through the Puppy Enrichment Program (PEP) at prisons to learn basic commands, and proper potty etiquette. But not me! I left straight from the puppy house which means my fosters worked suuuper hard to teach me these things. I had a few potty accidents at the beginning of the year, but now I barely have any. I also know some commands: sit, and nuzzle are some of my favorite!

I am so excited for October. I heard the leaves change color! That’s crazy!! I also might get dressed up for Halloween, but I am not sure yet. I am also excited to continue meeting small kids. My fosters are nice, but my favorite kinds of people are my size. When I meet new people while out and about, my fosters tell them what I am doing and teach them a little about 4 Paws. I will be working very hard to master more commands this month. I will be writing to you soon!! Have a great month!


Love and Tea,
