Everyone’s Favorite Question

When you have a pet, you usually hear one question over and over again. For people with Great Danes there are inevitable questions about saddles, and you better believe people with Rough Collies are still asked if their pup starred in Lassie.

For Rhodesian Ridgebacks, I am often asked about the ridge of hair running the opposite way along my pups’ backs. Some people think I love Mr. T and shave the ridge into them, others think the ridge is a scar. My favorite theory came from one kid who was certain the ridge must be just like the one a stegosaurus has.

But despite her prominent ridge, I think there is one question I get about Penny more than any other.Rhodesian Ridgeback, puppy, chicago, montrose dog beach, chicago, adventure

Whether from people at sea

Or those watching her on land

Penny inspires everyone to ask the same thing

I suspect most dogs would also have the same question, which is…

“So, is she always this crazy?”

To which I truthfully reply, “Of course not! Penny’s only like this when she’s awake.”

No matter what kind of pet you have, I’m sure there’s a specific question you get asked over and over again based on their look or personality. No doubt many of them will be good for a laugh, so be sure to share!
