Ok, so how great are Rhodesian Ridgebacks? Only the best darn dog breed in the world, thank you! I had one for a few years as a child, and have craved another one my entire adult life. Unfortunately, at least around here, puppies (and even young dogs) go for several hundred dollars. Way out of our reach. Plus, Marc and I have some disagreement over having a dog, period. If you are interested, check out ridgebacks on wikipedia.
