Artist's Description

(This is a vintage 1980s scanned photo, a 35mm picture) My Poodle died. I went to the Dog Pound, where a friend worked, and told him I wanted the Smallest Dog Made. I’ll be Darned if he didn’t talk me into THIS dog!!!! I kept saying, "But Frank, she’s a 3 yr old Pit Bull…..(AND she was an ABUSED and long time STRAY Pit Bull.) She cowered in the pen, we were terrified of each other. I don’t know WHAT possessed me to get her. I got her Free…….I named her Ginseng. WELL, we circled each other warily for a while. I was afraid to get her out of my van when we got home. I raised rabbits, possums, pigeons and ducks then. I was wondering where my mind went……BUT she turned out to be the most loving, sweet tempered dog I ever owned. I had her until she died 10 yrs later. My rabbits and ducks could play with her!!! The neighbors toddler played with her. I looked out back once and there were 4 little boys, a puppy, a cat and my ducks all sitting and playing nicely. I nearly died from fright. Its a law here, that Pits are chained. I soon learned THIS size chain was needed! She kept breaking the store bought ones, so she could go play with the neighbor kids. I went to the tack store and got a Bull Chain!….. My front flimsy wire gate was just under 4 ft. (it was rebuilt soon after, as were all my fences) One night there was a prowler. I was a Policewoman and was watching him, I wasn’t afraid. I stood there in darkness watching him, with my 357.Magnum in one hand, & handcuffs in the other. I was watching Ginseng QUIETLY hiding, waiting. She was dark, so she “Blended”. As soon as his weight was on the LEFT leg, inside the yard, she attacked. She took him DOWN!!!! OMG she was a fighter! He started screaming, I let her have fun for a while then reached down and handcuffed him, he looked up at a very angry women in pink pajamas with a gun in his face! NOT what he expected, I’m sure. LOL. I told Ginseng to GUARD (she DID!) and went in and phoned my PD. The officers responding laughed the whole time. He went away for a VERY long time. I’m sure he was well received in the Pen when it became known a woman and a dog took him down. Street Creds: 0!!….Taken with a disposable camera, edited some in GIMP.
