When I called home to tell my godmother I had finally got a dog again got some bad news. Found out my Rhodesian Ridgeback passed from a heartattack. Chance was the first dog I ever trained myself back when I was about12. Being too big for our cottage he freeroamed a huge pasture with our two female ridgebacks but was easily behaved enough to have been a house dog. Seems one of the neighbors had been firing off fireworks (illegal in Illinois) and he got scared. He had just sired his last litter so at atleast he lives on in that respect.

He was a beast with the mind of a small puppy. He thought he was a lap dog but with his paws on my shoulders he was above eye level (im 6'1"). The funny part was my mom's chihuahua, Nia, would boss him around when we let her out.

Very sorry to hear. What a belly-drop... Especially when you were calling for an upbeat reason and then to have the tone shift so unexpectedly. He was a beautiful boy, I've always loved ridgebacks.
