“”I’ve always wanted a dog and finally my parents said, we are going to get a dog.

I am 15 and I live at home.

My family adopted her from the Westchester Humane Society.

We were looking at dogs on their website and a photo of Silka popped up.

The angle of the photo made her look slender and very unique.

We had a picture in our minds of what we wanted our dog to look like and she fit the bill.”

“Ginkgo loves people and dogs, except for young children and babies.

I am preparing for our trip by putting together a medical kit for her as well as myself.

I am working on my safety skills, learning boat repair, and becoming a better navigator.

The reason for the trip is to make a documentary film about by travels and see the world before settling down.”

We plan to set sail in a year and a half.

One of the toughest times since having Ginkgo was when I was living in L.A. and working  a lot.

I left her with a sitter, and one day she ran after me and was hit by a car.

I was afraid she died.

I thought she had internal damage, but she was okay.

I sat in the middle of the road crying and yelling, Grandma, in Italian.

She severed a few toes, but the vet reattached them.”
