Dog of the Day: Daji the Rhodesian Ridgeback Puppy

Time for another puppy. Daji is a cute-as-a-button Rhodesian ridgeback, ten or eleven weeks old in these pictures. He’s still at that adorable ‘I’m not sure what I’m doing’ stage, but he definitely knows he likes his treats! (Incidentally, I think Daji is our first Rhodesian ridgeback.)

Daji’s humans have a blog of their own. Feel free to go say hello, if you like. It has a couple more pictures of Daji on it, if that’s any enticement.

Two more pictures after the break.

Do a lot of ridgebacks have that white splash on the chest? I've never seen it before, but it's adorable.

I've REALLY got to carry around a faster camera.

Daji's training seemed to be going as well as could be expected for such a young pup. Key to training: find treats the pup goes gaga over.

    My undergrad advisor had a RR, who I seem to recall was named Rx (say: Rex), who was one of the most wonderful mellow dogs I’d ever met to that point. Certainly on my list of most favorite dogs ever along with the bassets I lived with in grad school and a certain doxie named Jewel.

    Ridgebacks are awesome. There’s one that spends his days in a store near me on Russian Hill, who sneaks out every so often to beg for food at the cafe next door. And then sneaks back in and acts innocent.
