The GSD is from Ireland, came as a package with the Mrs., the Ridgeback was rehomed from Jockistan via a charity, within days they were inseperable, the photo is from three years ago, about a month after we got Penny (the RR), they were both about six years old when the photo was taken.

She spent some time with Sparks, our last Ridgeback, she adored him and learnt a lot from him - mainly to not fear water but also not to bite chainsaws..... especially 'active' ones.

No, he didn't - Ruby did though, thankfully other than a chipped canine (tooth, not the whole animal!) no other damage.
Here's our current two, a bit older & greyer

Tell me about it! Sparks (the big old Ridgeback) properly told her off for doing it! I think that was more of a shock to her than getting her tooth chipped - the thought of what could've happened still makes me a bit queasy.

Here's the damage

I'd been sharpening the chainsaw and just refitted the chain, I didn't realise Ruby was behind me when I fired it up and released the brake to check the oiler was working.... I think Sparks must have sensed the danger because as she leapt back he had her pinned to the floor (he was 72kg, Ruby a mere 31kg) and stopped her having another go.
