Found out that videos no longer worked due to an out of date plugin.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.

Paws Across The Sea

We do get a few emails via the site contact form; it’s great to read that people enjoy the blog and find it interesting. Obviously most passers by are Ridgeback owners, are interested in Ridgebacks or have a lion infestation problem in their back garden.

So it was nice to receive an email from Lily across the water in New York who has a lovely Ridgeback called Julius. Julius has kept his part of the bargain and Lily reports that they are lion-free. Julius has decided that squirrels now require his attention.

I asked Lily if she had any pictures so we could balance the site out so Louis doesn’t think it’s all about him and she has kindly sent some over.

Here’s Julius doing what Ridgebacks do really well; better than any other hound. Yes, guarding the floor.

He’s good; you won’t catch me trying to nick that floor.

Here’s Julius in a more refined pose. I have to be honest; I’m not a doggie expert or a Ridgeback aficionado but there’s only a few dog breeds that can pull this pose off and Ridgebacks are by far the best. Julius has it…

It’s that “I might scavenge discarded butties (sandwiches) out of hedgerows but I have a longer name than you and I can trace my ancestors further back than you can; now kneel before me and bring me kibble, or sausages; preferably both.” look.

Thank you Lily, and Julius.
