Rhodesian Ridgebacks

The Awesome Dog

Sam the Curious

Sam is a Rhodesian Ridgeback, and one morning he got up to go outside. At the bottom of the steps was a skunk. He chased through the yard and strangely the skunk was pretty slow, but when Sam caught up the skunk sprayed him in the face. It caused him to gag from the smell. Poor Sam smelled so bad.

No Jumping!

When Sam, our Rhodesian Ridgeback was little, he would get to excited when people would come. So we were always having trouble, then we decided to get a gate. We put it in the doorway, now he is able to calm down before we let him out with people.
