Not a fish, but so cute!

Look at this! Will you just look at what I'm getting on October 13th! I have a Rhodesian Ridgeback, he doesn't have a ridge, but he just turned nine. We decided to get him a little brother. This one has a ridge. I just can't wait!

I have seen these dogs before and they are wonderful. Does anyone know what they bred for--why the ridge?

Hara, what do you mean "lurecourse?"

Answer to questions: Ridgebacks were originally created by breeding mastifs, greyhounds, bloodhounds, great danes and the african razorback terrior (or hottentot dog) and are also known as the african lion hound. They are now bred for the ridge as it has become the breed standard, but they were originally bred to hunt lions (in packs of three) and to protect children. Check out the links for more info.

Hara, I found an answer... lurecourse, also lure chasing, running after fake rabbits. Uh, no... but it might be fun to learn. My current ridgy is too busy sleeping on one of his three or four padded dog beds under a blanket and being fed bones, oh... that's when we're not off to Petco or Western Ranch Supply! He really is spoiled. We do go for walks, but he's not really a runner. Sometimes we go camping and I let him chase real rabbits, but that's because I know he won't catch them anyway. But it's too cool to see him run full out when he gets a sight.
