25th September 2000 - 13th June 2013

Lotti was bred by Sue Campbell and Charlie Wheeler of Nyassa Rhodesian Ridgebacks. She qualified for Crufts in Both 2002 and 2003, while making the cut in her class in both years unfortunately hasn't been placed.

Somewhat like her dam, Lotti isn't a great fan of the show ring. While she enjoys the day out she would much prefer to be in the Circus Ring!!

She has a beautiful character is always full of fun and appears to love every minute. She will play with people, the other dogs or on her own and generally keeps us in stitches with her antics. Never a dull moment with "Madam" around, who for a few more months will still be the baby of the family, until Maestro arrives.


Au Revoir Lotti

It was with great sadness that we had to let our sweet Lotti cross the bridge in June 2013. While she was of advanced years, up until only two days before her passing she would still enjoy a gentle stroll in the woods. Despite our best efforts, over those two days her condition deteriorated so quickly that it was clearly time to let her go. She could be stubborn but was always gentle and absolutely adored children. She was the sweetest of girls, always made us laugh but eventually made us cry. Rest easy our sweet Lotti, until we meet again x

Our Sweet Lotti

Come close now friends
And listen well
As we tell you of
Our special girl
Baby Lotti

Those dark bright eyes
Those outsized ears
Memories from
Her early years
Young Lotti

Her stubborn streak
Her easy way
Her gentle touch
Her bouncy play
Sweet Lotti

She loved all kids
When they ran riot
With her and her toys
It never was quiet
Nanny Lotti

But Time is our master
His ravage unending
Her body slowed down
Time was unbending
Dear Lotti

And so came the day
She crossed over the bridge
Our special girl
Of perfect ridge
Old Lotti

Just remember sweet girl
As you play in the sun
We’ll join you one day
Love from dad and your mum
Our Lotti.

Look out for the others Old Girl, they'll find you and show you the ropes
Until we all meet up again xx
