The dogs were bred originally as a cross between a native (now extinct) semi-domesticated dog used by the native tribesmen to protect and guard (which is where the ridge came from) and a verity of European hounds imported when the area was colonized. The resultant "breed" was used by the English to hunt in packs of 3-5 dogs, their main purpose was to chase, aggravate, tire, and hold the lion at bay for a number of hours until the lazy hunter could come around and shoot it (depressing I know).Oh, that's so funny. Thanks for posting it. How are they supposed to take down lions, anyway. I think I'd vote for the lions.
The cat loves water and when he can, sneaks in the shower with me. I usually take the opportunity to shampoo and condition him, so he generally stays pretty white (and allergen free). He's a bit of an oddball.Is that an albino cat?!
