‘Twas The Romp Before Christmas

We hit the long road home tomorrow and I need the pups extra tired for the trip. Luckily, fate smiled on us and the pups’ favorite pal, Tripp, was at the dog beach.Rhodesian Ridgeback, chicago, blog, montrose dog beach, adventure, puppy

Tripp is about the size of Eko and Penny combined, which is good, because they both love romping with him at the same time

Tripp gamely led the Ridgeback trio on a mighty charge

Tripp isn’t as fast as Eko or Penny, but he has some fun tactics to make up for it. Once the pups catch him…

He throws on the brakes to let Eko and Penny fly by

On a day where I needed the pups doubly tired

Tripp was the one dog up to the task

With his brake maneuver, Tripp probably made Eko and Penny run twice as far as he did

Thanks to Tripp, Eko and Penny should hopefully snore the whole ride home.

  1. Will,

    Me and my sis truly enjoy readingy your blog. It’s become part of our daily routine. We often say ‘have you seen the latest one?’. It brings us great joy and reminds us of our Pino (especially Eko). Pino was our introduction to Ridgebacks. Lucky for us because before that we never heard of the breed – can you believe that?! Now…we adore ridgebacks. Their behaviours, face and heart of lion while simultaneously being cuddle monsters. One day we will have another until then we rely on Eko and Penny for our daily fix. May you and Emily have a joyous holiday season and safe travels.
