Dog of the Day: Rhodesian Ridgeback

Ran into this fine gentleman outside of a Whole Foods. Rhodesian ridgebacks are rather hefty dogs by nature, and can look a little intimidating, but this one was too obviously begging for affection even to scare a passing 5-year-old.

That’s quite an intent stare.

He really was shameless… he hit up everyone who walked by.

This Whole Foods is only a couple blocks from a pretty great dog park. If I were sure I could have gotten away with it, I would have snaffled him, played with him for half an hour, and then brought him back.

    Oh, what a face. I wouldn’t have been able to resist petting him either!

      He was a leaner too. If you petted him well enough he’d lean his entire weight against your leg and try to keep you from leaving until he was good and ready!

    I love leaners – especially big leaning dogs. Lots of love to share : )
