Happy Birthday Colby - 12 years young!
It's a special weekend here at Colkeririn Rhodesian Ridgebacks HQ - we're busy celebrating Colby's 12th Birthday! Here are some photos of our birthday boy. He loves "Happy Birthday to You" so much, I think, after 12 years of having it sung to him, he could almost sing it himself! Every year he gets a dog birthday cake - and this year's was a big hit! (Recipe below).
Born and bred in the beautiful Sonoran Desert in Arizona, USA, our desert dog enjoyed some lovely UK Winter sunshine whilst out on one of his two daily walks, and not surprisingly stopped for a roll in the grass!
Colby is loved by so many around the globe, Multi International Champion, American Dual Champion, Multi Int. Ch, AM DC Columbia Blue Sky of Courage, SC (Senior Courser) is a proud father to Roobarb, Hugo, Mojo, Buster, Verde, Tikka, Angel and Liona and grandfather to Bear, Bear, Rubus, Claude, Sere, Indie, Bella, Bella, Twiga, Kenya, Benya and Phloxy and a good friend to many near and far - he sends his greetings to all.

Handful of small training treats for decoration
