Found out that videos no longer worked due to an out of date plugin. Sorted out a new one and the videos are now back up and running. This gave us the opportunity to laugh at the old boy. After all he was 8 on the 27th December!

We've added an extra chart showing Louis' weight against how many weeks old; makes it easier to read and compare.

Some interesting Linnaean dog terminology.

Ridgebacks don’t retrieve…

We’ve had many people tell us that Ridgebacks don’t make good retrievers. I’m sure this is true in general but in Louis’ case he will always retrieve his favourite toy that we take on his morning walk. He’ll retrieve other toys and objects but soon loses interest; however this particular toy always works up till the moment he gets tired and doesn’t come back with it. He stays put until he gets his breath back. The photo below is a good example of Louis in action just this morning.

The toy in question is a CombatĀ® Extreme Toss n’ Pull Dog Toy – you can see it here

We have quite a few toys of this make, they stand up well to Louis’ rough-housing. The Toss n’ Pull toy is definitely his favourite. He gets to play with this at the end of his morning walk but also brings it to you at home when he wants to play.
