03.11.2008 GiftRegrettably the Christmas Party has had to be cancelled

We would like to thank all who made advanced reservations in support of this event, the proceeds of which have always gone to the Rescue Fund. Sadly reservations were not of a sufficient number to make the event viable. This may be due to the current economic climate or perhaps a Christmas Party is not something that the majority want. Any comments on the matter, or indeed any other matter, would be most welcomed in our newly launched Guestbook.

Reservation refunds will be made as soon as possible. We hope that all who booked will not be too disappointed.
03.11.2008  Guestbook Launched! Your comments are welcome.

12.06.2008 Sampson & YodaIt was with great sadness that we received news of recently re-homed Sampson. In the last week or so he was diagnosed with a tumour on the spleen. Despite the very best efforts of new owner Lorraine and that of her vets, sadly he did not survive. Our heartfelt thanks to Lorraine for making the last eight weeks for this gentle boy a loving and happy experience.

Breed Council

The Breed Council representing all four Rhodesian Ridgeback Clubs in Britain meets twice a year to discuss all Rhodesian Ridgeback related issues. Its function is to collate the collective views of all clubs and present them to The Kennel Club. News of The Breed Council activities will be posted as available.


Discover Dogs

Discover Dogs is becoming increasingly popular. In future on ridgeback day at Crufts, the stand will be manned, and ridgebacked, by some of our Rescue Rhodesian Ridgebacks (check out their stories). We also attend Discover Dogs at Earls Court, London, in November and in May we represent Rhodesian Ridgebacks at the "All About Dogs" exhibition in Essex. We always need people to help with these events so if you would care to volunteer your services for a couple of hours it will alleviate the strain on the regulars who do a full days stint, which is unfair on their Ridgebacks. With hundreds of people milling around asking questions, some sensible, some ridiculous, even Ridgebacks get tired out. As long as your dog is "bombproof" and you like talking (and lets face it what RR owner doesn't) Please offer to help.
