Star Wars- Ridgeback Style

Here's a picture of Harley- in her "Jedi Knight" outfit.Harley is my sister's rescued Ridgeback. We are lucky to live close enough for the boys to get together with Miss Harley often for playdates!

Adoption of Miss Morgan

Hi everyone. Amanda, my daughter Barb, anad I traveled to Memphis to adopt our precious new family member, Morgan. Claudia and Jim in Iowa have been taking care of her, so she had unbelievable foster parents. Mary also took care of her for a month to heal a bad bite on her back. If anyone knows Mary's email, I would love to have it so I can thank her personally for all the loving care she gave.

Morgan is 6 yrs old, she was a breeder in a puppy mill. :( She is very shy right now and I think she is still wondering how she got here. We saw Roxie our vet today and he said he could hardly wait to see her in a couple of months. She will be a different gal once she realizes that this is for real. I will try and take some pics of her this weekend and see if I can learn how to get pics on line. It is nice to know that all of you are here also loving Ridgebacks as I do. Morgan is my second RR and I adore the breed.

This will make Amanda probably throw up but I am a big snuggler, kisser, and all around mush when it comes to my dogs! There is nothing greater that snuggeling with a RR on your bed. Morgan even has a wonderful snore that lets me know she is sleeping peacefully.

Wonderful to join this group. I look forward to getting to know all of you on line.

Weekend in Memphis

Jafari, Queen, Zevin (Riley), Roadie, Logan, and Tamu had a busy weekend in Memphis.

It was quite warm outside and we couldn't get anyone to play. They preferred to rest on the bed instead.
The weekend was an eventful one- another Ridgeback was adopted and RRUS added another member to the family. I hope they will share their story soon.

Any ideas on the next place for a RRUS reunion?

Food Hound

Last week we had some work done on our home. As usual, Roadie was the family's greeter. He quickly introduced himself and checked the man out with the infamous RR SNIFF- you all know the one I am talking about ;)

The man got to work and Roadie disappeared. At first I thought he'd gone back to bed. Nope not there. Maybe he was curled up on the couch? Wrong Again. I then went out into the back yard to see if he was sunning himself. Finally I found him. BUT he was not sunning himself.

There he was sitting in the work van- EATING the man's lunch. At first, I busted out laughing then wondered how I was going to tell this man that my dog ate his meal. I simply explained that he had just had his first lesson in Ridgebacks- and the learning curve is a steep one.

Thank goodness- this man was a dog lover but obviously did NOT know about Ridgebacks and their uncanny ability to find food.

After Roadie had his mid-morning snack, he snuggled into the couch cushions for a nap.

Gotta Love our Food Hounds!
