My beautiful Rhodesian Ridgeback, Bella, is now 15 months. She is a lovely dog and she has her own mind - that's a RR for you!!
She likes my small bears, in fact, she loves to chew them, and that is the ONLY thing she will take that is not allowed. Well, the responsibility is mine, so I have to remember to always put my bears in boxes when I do not work on them. I have forgotten a few times and it is really annoying to have an almost finished bear chewed to pieces.
Bella is becoming a really good watchdog and we just love her.
