Hi all! I just thought that I'd let you know I'm still lurking around the board but I haven't been posting too much.

We've been volunteering with the Rhodesian Ridgeback rescue organization that helped us rehome Neo. I'm doing a home visit for them this weekend and right now there is an adorable 3 month old Ridgeback pup sleeping on the floor (just fostering for 1 night, I promise!). It feels good to help out an org that helped us when we needed it so badly, and it's also a good reminder that I never want another puppy...haha!

Awwwwww!!!! :D How can you resist! Although borrowing a puppy is much better - its like being an Auntie, you get to give them back at the end of the day after having all the fun hehe :lol: Just gorgeous!

Definitely! I gave him a big kiss this morning and wished him luck, but I won't miss the biting this evening! He had giant knuckles and GIANT feet. The picture doesn't really do him justice- I haven't seen feet that size on a 3-month old RR pup ever. I can't imagine how big he's going to get.

I honestly don't know his story. The rescue asked me to pick him up since he lived near my home. When I met with the surrendering owner, it was a college kid and his mom. From what I understand the kid (I say kid, but he was 18, 19) got the puppy then decided to go away to college, and the mom wasn't willing to take care of a rowdy puppy. I don't know why he didn't go back to the breeder-perhaps the breeder was a shady character, or some other circumstance. They had only had him for 5 weeks, which would have made him about 6 weeks old when they brought him home.
