Old Rhodesian Ridgeback Still Running Around and Enjoying it

Bee, is mostly a Rhodesian Ridgeback, but she doesn’t have the ridge. I’m not sure if B. is for a short for something or actually Bee for the colours of bees. Her owners think that she’s not a pure Rhodesian Ridgeback.

She already 11 years old (which is quite old for Rhodesian Ridgebacks) and she still loves to …

A Very Tired Corgi

This Corgi was tired from running around. This is a very large grass field with many dogs running and she was running after every dog. Then she ‘submarined’ under every dog and went to sniff them. That’s one of the benefit of being a ‘shortie’.

As a usual Corgi, she was bossy, trying to move the other in some direction or another as she was …

Fearless Dog

This dog is fearless. She stares straight in my eyes and into my camera. It wasn’t just turning the head and me good lucky. Not once did she flinch.

Confident Beagle Crossing the Street

This is a confident Beagle on his way… His name is Charlie, actually Charles is the official name. The name Charles is after Prince Charles, the son of Queen Elizabeth II. When I asked for the reason, she said that it was because of the ears. ‘Oh’ I said and I didn’t go any further asking questions about the ears.

Charlie is already 6 …
