Zuri was my first Ridgeback and what a great dog she was! She was fun, energetic, and had a mind of her own! It was just the two of us and she was my constant companion and playmate. Unfortunately, as sometimes happens, my life took a turn when she was 2 years old and I had to return her to her breeder as I was going out of the country for an unspecified length of time. It just broke my heart to give her up but I had faith that her breeder would find her a wonderful forever home. That she did, with a family with children, all who adored her until she died at the age of 14 years. I still miss my girl, she was the light of my life.
