Aww.. You've Got Chooks Running Round Your Yard - Rhodesian Ridgeback - NZ by 


Rhodesian Ridgeback (African Lion Dog). A dignified and formidable dog, the Ridgeback derives its name from the distinctive ridge of hair which grows contrary to the direction of the rest of the coat, in a tapering line along the middle of its back. It shares the colour as well as the heart of the lion which was once its quarry. Developed by the Boers in the late 19th Century, its standard was fixed in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) in 1922. In the hunt for lions it was reknowned for its great stamina and surprising agility. Nowadays it is used as a guard dog and makes a loyal and effectionate family pet. Note: The breed’s unique ridge of hair is thought to have been inherited from the now extinct Hottentot Dog. Information gathered from the book: Dogs by David Alderton from the Eyewitness Handbooks Series – A Dorling Kindersley Book.
Thanks to Anthony Vella for the information.
One of your neighbourhood dogs, Rufus on his walk, he stopped to have a little chat… then noticed the chickens in the yard, he was perplexed, or should I say baffled and confused… Needless to say then Chooks were not impressed to see him at the gate… Brooster got quite puffed up and read to do battle

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
