|I dedicate this page to a "few" instances of incorrect behavior displayed by some of OUR sweet, loving Ridgebacks. I will
start with Raji. When Raji was about 7 months old and I thought he had pretty much learned the house rules....I caught

their spot in my CLOSED closet. Raji, who had learned to open most doors, crates or gates at a young age returned back
to the closet when he was sure I was otherwise occupied opened it and retrieved the shoe that was taken from him
earlier and "DESTROYED IT". The worst thing, other than they were my FAVORITE black shoe's, was that they were $400.00
Italian designer shoe's given to me.......as I would never pay that much for any shoe.

Nala loves to counter surf and her favorite prize is loaves of bread.
We have to keep it in the microwave. Let's just say, the counter has to be free of anything edible ;-).
Bisous was caught in the act with her "BAD DOG ANTICS" with a camera.
First she was caught in the beginning stages of de-stuffing her fancy bed.
Then when she was a little older teething on an arm rest. Yep, she's got
some horns sprouting.

Kopa chewed a hole in the middle of the dining room carpet. I'd get mad if
