Rhodesian Ridgeback Rumble

“Who’s that!?” is one of the pups’ favorite phrases. I usually say it to let them know I’ve spotted Emily, or my brother or someone else we know. Eko and Penny immediately go “radar head” to find who I’m talking about and then sprint over to say hello.

“Who’s that!?” is almost exclusively used for people. Almost. A few pups make the VIP (or VID, I guess) list. At the top of that list is Tripp, a massive Rhodesian Ridgeback about Penny’s age, with a heart to match.

When Tripp rumbles into the beach, Eko and Penny both stop what they’re doing and zoom over to say hello

It’s pretty rare we find a park-pal whose play style matches up well with both Eko and Penny. Tripp fits that bill perfectly and it’s always a treat to watch these three romp together.

Things usually begin as a three-way standoff

Tripp gets the first laugh as Penny jumps on Eko’s head. But then…

“Whatchu laughin’ at, big boy!”

Penny conducts the symphony of mayhem as the pack takes off down the beach

The friends form a whipping, twelve-legged whirling dervish

Trip gamely wrestles with Eko

And happily lets Penny whisper sweet nothings into his ear as they stroll down the sand

I think this looks like the poster for a heist movie. Eko’s the leader of the operation, Tripp’s the muscle, and Penny is the crazy one in charge of explosives

Nothing beats a day at the beach with your best friends

There weren’t any roses or candle lit dinners, but this Valentine’s playdate was a huge success!

If we could “like” individual pictures, this would get my enthusiastic LIKE!!: “I think this looks like the poster for a heist movie…, and Penny is the crazy one in charge of explosives” LOL

I love your blog. As an RR owner, rescuer, I get my fix by reading your posts, as at this time I am without an RR. I love how you let the dogs “be”. You see them as they are, with a special understanding. What a great pack you make!
