Rowdy, my world famous Rhodesian Ridgeback, is no longer, in official terms, anyway, a puppy.
The critical milestone that we can now face together is that Rowdy is eligible to run sustained distances (dogs should not run thusly before the age of two). This is one of the reasons I picked the Rhodesian Ridgeback breed. They are incredible athletes, and possessed of inspired stamina.
And, I need such a creature to keep up with me – and, inspire me.
On a side note, before we’re off for the lake, it being Rowdy’s Birthday, Joanne is taking him to Petco to pick out a new toy. And, then it’s off to the dog park (www.wolfbrook.com) where his buddies will give him a good romp, he can chase deer, and Jo can compare notes with her own chums.
