KENILWORTH, NJ - Meet Ginger, Kenilworth’s TAPinto Pet of the Week!

Ginger is a 16 Year old Yorkshire Terrier who just celebrated her birthday in June. She’s deaf, but still lives life to the fullest. Her favorite late-night treats are the chicken nuggets from Burger King. Some of her hobbies include organizing and counting her stuffed toys and climbing into any purse she can, even if it’s too tiny for her to fit into. She’s a cancer survivor for the last four years and does not take any moment for granted. She loves snuggles under blankets and kisses from anyone. Ginger is also a star. She had her portrait painted by Thom Bierdz who played Phillip Chancellor III in The Young and the Restless. Two of her portraits are featured in his book of paintings. 

Ginger is proud to be a member of the Kenilworth community and would love attention if anyone happens to see her being walked around the town or riding in her doggy carriage. Don’t be afraid to wave at her, she can’t hear so saying hi won’t get her attention.
