Arrival Story: I have had Ridge backs for close to 30 years. When I got my first one I was single and living in an appartment so I got used to taking Sandi with me everywhere I went including work. It became a habit that worked well for me so I continued with it after she passed with Tu and after her I needed another dog so I got Samiya. For the 30 years I figure I have been without a Ridgeback by my side for about 3 0r 4 months total. The breed means something special to me and Samiya has become the most loving and devoted one of all although they all were special in their own way
Bio: Samiya is gone now. She lived 15 years and I would like to think she enjoyed every minute. Right up to the last days she looked forward to walking in the fields with Hodari chasing the critters. She had slowed down a bit but she still tried. Hodari is lost with out her. Samiya was special in that she was completely loyal and loving but always a little independent. Every once in a while she would look at me and say "not today", do what she wanted to. She rates right up there with Sandi. I'll miss her.
