Dog of the Day: Rhodesian Ridgeback

Another CorgiCon attendee, but I can’t help but feel that there’s something… different about him. I dunno. Could it be the fact that he has legs that are about as long as a corgi’s body? Or maybe that he was bred for hunting lions that outweigh him by a factor of four to one, whereas a corgi was bred to herd cows that outweigh him by a factor of… a hundred?

Huh. I’m gonna have to say that neither of these breeds were behind the door when the raw courage was handed out.

Anyway, this fine fellow is a young adult male Rhodesian ridgeback, and was very much enjoying galloping up and down the beach amongst the corgis.

Ridgebacks are always bigger in person than I remember them being.

They also ‘gallumph’ when they run, which is always good for a laugh.
