The Most Important Lesson for a Rhodesian Ridgeback Puppy

There are so many things for a puppy to learn in this great big world, but where to start? For Rhodesian Ridgebacks at least, the answer is easy. Which is why I didn't waste time telling Zero the hard truth of his existence and the dire necessity of his work. Below is the transcript of Zero's first day on the job.

There are so many things for a puppy to learn in this great big world, but where to start? For Rhodesian Ridgebacks at least, the answer is easy. Which is why I didn’t waste time telling Zero the hard truth of his existence and the dire necessity of his work. Below is the transcript of Zero’s first day on the job.

 

WILL: Zero, do you have any  idea how many lion attacks there have been in Chicago since we moved here five years ago?

WILL: Zero.

ZERO: What?

WILL: No, I mean there have been zero attacks.

ZERO: I haven’t attacked anybody, I’m just a puppy!

WILL: …there have been NO attacks.

ZERO: Got it, why didn’t you just say so?

WILL: And do you know why that is?

ZERO: No, but I suspect you’re going to tell me…

WILL: Let me tell you! It’s because brave Rhodesian Ridgebacks keep them at bay!

ZERO: Whoa, you mean Ridgebacks like me?

WILL: Exactly. Without your service this city would undoubtedly be overrun with lions.

ZERO: But what is a cute puppy like me supposed to do?

WILL: The short answer is pretty much you just need to act like Penny and everyone, lions and otherwise, will keep a move on to steer clear.

ZERO: Act like Penny…are you sure?

WILL: With reservations….yes.

ZERO: Well then, let’s have some fun!

And thus this wild rumpus began. Zero bravely battled his first lion with a fierceness to make his big sister proud.

It’s not an easy job keeping the citizens of Chicago safe from lions, but luckily we have a new vigilante ready for the task.
