Zola the Rhodesian Ridgeback Girl

Residence: I lived the first three years of my life in the South of France. I’m now living in the South of England.
Also Known as: Zola-la, Zola-cheeky-girl, & Wing-nut
Meaning: Zola means ‘stay in peace’ (South African Xhosa language). It is also the name of the well-loved famous French writer Emile Zola . So when I was living in France, the French humans found it easy to remember my name. They liked to call me ‘Big dog Zola’! Well, with a French accent it actually sounds more like ‘Beeg derg Zola’! I don’t think I’m that big but compared to the average size dogs (the Shorties!) on the French Riviera, perhaps I was rather tall?
Breed: Rhodesian Ridgeback

Star Sign: Aries
Weight: Around 34 kilos
