I announced last weekend that I FINALLY added a little pink in my life. Meet Lexi the newest addition to our family!
My boys have been asking for a dog for over a year now. My husband and I talked about it and did some research on the type of breed that would be the best fit for our family. We instantly fell in love with Rhodesian Ridgebacks. They are smart, obedient, active, have minimal shedding (a win for me!), have low health problems, and with their family, they are a quiet, gentle companion, one who’s able and willing to defend their home and people if the need arises.
What makes this breed unique is the ridge that runs down their back (my boys call it their Mohawk). This reveals part of their heritage, which is a mix of European hunting dogs and African dogs who had the distinctive ridge.
After a lot of searching (and almost giving up) we found a breeder close to us, who had a dog that was pregnant with puppies. So it’s been a long process but we brought Lexi home last weekend and she has been a great addition to our family. She’s a livernose Ridgeback, which means her features will stay pretty light as opposed to having a darker face. Today she turns 7 weeks, so she’s still such a baby. She loves to cuddle, give kisses, and we fell in love with her instantly.
In celebration of being a new dog owner, I put together a round up of really cool superhero gear for pets. As you know from reading my blog, we are big Marvel fans and of course Lexi will join in on the fun!
