    Ike is now 7 months - 90 pounds - and the best dog I have ever known! He is sweet, smart, kind, loveable, and such a joker! Everyone who meets him is in love! (Hence the name - "I like Ike") He is just the most special, beautiful dog. Thank you so much for giving our family this baby boy! He is enhancing our lives every day! We can not wait to add another Rhodesian love to our family!!

    Dear June, I have to tell you what happened with Riggins a few weeks ago. Riggins is about 10 months old. My mother who is 67 was taking Riggins for a walk down the street when she tripped and fell on the road. By the way my mom has had two knee replacements. When she fell Riggins immediately went to my mom and started nudging her with his nose to get her to get up. She could not get up. He then stood next to her for a few minutes until my mom realized that he wanted her to use his body to help her get up. She put her hands on his back and was able to get herself up. I did not witness this but my mother, and my friend Casey were amazed. Needless to say my mother is in love with Riggins. He is an awesome dog and is absolutely wonderful with my 4 and 6 year old girls. Thank you so much for giving Riggins to us.

    aug 20,2010 Sherlock is great and really made our summer the best one ever!! He is a show stopper at the dog park and when he is out and about. Everyone asks what breed he is and gives him lots of attention. He is as active as we wanted and a real lovable dog. Thanks for this great dog!

    Just wanted to let you know that our little angel girl is excellent!! She is here with me at work today, so we've met and enchanted yet another group of new friends. We also met Doc Lancaster today, Isabel's new Vet, and just as I suspected, after a VERY thorough going over, from temp to fecal testing, long listening to heart, lungs, all joints checked eyes, ears (I don't think there's one inch of this puppy he doesn’t know at this point!!!) he has pronounced her perfect and healthy in every way!! Oh and by the way, she's 20 pounds and in excellent condition also, he said not too chubby, not too thin and her skin and coat are lovely :) Are you beaming yet? Cuz I sure am, he said to me, "I don't see too many Ridgebacks, but they're one of my favorite breeds, WHERE did you get this puppy??!!" I explained my two year search and all about you. I told him how blessed and lucky I am to have this phenomenal addition to my family and he agreed!!!!! : ) So….once again, thank you, thank you, thank you for everything that you do so tirelessly for this majestic breed and for all of us that are blessed and lucky enough to own one of Grandma June's precious pups!!!!! He also said the same thing you did about no public places until after 12 week shots, no puppy classes until then etc., just my yard and office. I'm so glad I listened to you, thanks again!!!!! Teri

    Hey June! Kobe is doing great! He is just shy of 50lbs and just turned 4 months! He is fearless playing with my friends 110+ pound Mastiff even at his young age. He is incredibly smart and has been nothing shy of a breeze to train obedience and tricks. He will heel at my side with out a leash as if he were on one- even if I start walking in circles! I love my cuddler and couldn't be happier! Kobe and my Goldendoodle Sam have been best friends since day one and love hanging out. Kobe is usually really calm inside but will go nuts with Sam the moment I let them off leash outside. Thank you for a great dog! Hope to hear from you again soon.

    Hi June, Dakota is doing great!! He is soooooo huge! My boys just love him - he is such a good dog. He comes when he is called and is everything and more you described. He has gone through training and is very obedient. He is such a great companion and a great addition to our Family. You don't know what you have done for me and my family. When we take him to the park he just runs all over the place. The boys try to catch him without success. He loves to be their center of attention. As a puppy he has been just great. He tries to be so careful around our littlest boy. It is real interesting to watch. It seems that he can tell that he is fragile and needs to be careful. But for the most part he is just a happy doppey lovable boy. I will get my wife to snap a few photos of he and the boys today and I'll forward them on. We just love him. Thanks again so very much.

    Rocket is doing so well with all of my daycare children and my own. His siblings, Alice, Evee, and Ralfie (terrier sibling) love to rock with him. He is potty trained and so good. I have one little child care child that is the next dog whisperer. He dives on Rocket's head and they wrestle but no biting. He is still nipping and teething just like his child care buddies. Today he was trying to find out why he couldn't eat at the table. He is our joy. He likes running around the park with his mommy. He runs right with me. It is good for both of us. Tomorrow we are going to have a snow storm so I put up the little tent we have in the living room and it has been so funny that we can't get enough. He is running back and forth and when we touch the side he tries to get "it". My human daughters, Alice and Evee, kept being the "it" on the outside of the tent. It was a treat. It is so wonderful to have him in our family right now. Evee, my youngest and spunkiest, has decided that she is his real mommy. She comes home from preschool at noon when it is nap time for the babies, she told me yesterday and I quote, "Mommy, since I am Rocket's mommy, I think that he needs to have a nap. I want him on my lap(on his favorite rocker) for a half hour because he needs to rest." He did not fight it. We have been outside with all of the children running around and he is great with them. They all know how to say " no" and "drop it Rocket" and he listens to them. My husband raised our other Ridgeback when he was single and Rocket is the first large dog I have raised. It has been a joy.

    I am a dog lover of all kind, and would own one of each if I could. I came across your website by searching the paper- I look for dogs every week, however we already have 3, so looking is all I do. Your website was very nice. These dogs look like absolute sweethearts, and they are very beautiful. The 'In Loving Memory' page was heartbreaking. Just wanted to write a quick note to say I enjoyed looking and learning about your dogs and the breed. You must really love what you do, because it shows!

    June, John and I have discussed before that we admire your passion and love for your Rhodesians. It is reflected in the emails you do on each litter, the communication you have done with us, and in your website. That is why we have kept in contact with you since first discovering you as a breeder as there would be no one else we would go to for a puppy because of the passion you put into it. I will keep an eye out for a new litter news around from you. Will speak with you soon! Take Care, Kristy
