These are by far NOT my favorite card to have to make - but our Rhodesian Ridgeback Recue coordinator had to say goodbye to her beloved boy MAX on Christmas night. He was such a gentle giant and loved everyone that had a "snack" for him. He had several health problems the passed couple of years including a couple of surgeries but he always bounced back.
We made a donation in Max's honor to the Ridgeback Rescue organization as all of our Rhodesian Ridgebacks (2 full and one mix black lab/Rhodesian) have come through the rescue organization. We have fostered several dogs waiting for their forever home, trained a beautiful little pup Elle that now has a forever wonderful home in WI. and with the mixed (black lab/Rhodesian) we are what is termed "failed fosters". We have 3 beautiful furbabies that let us share their home with us, all weighing in at 75 to 75+ pounds, yes they eat a LOT and require daily or more of clean up in the backyard. I wouldn't trade them for anything.
