Do you fancy a gentle stroll in the crisp late October air, among the ever changing colours of Autumn, in the Beautiful Moss Valley? Followed perhaps with a cosy lunch in any one of a number of local hostelries !!

There are no mountains to climb just a nice steady walk for a couple of hours, but there is an escape route; a short cut for those who would prefer an easier and shorter walk!!

HostelryIf this sounds appealing, why not come along with (or without) your dog and at the same time help raise some money to aid our less fortunate charges. The walk begins at 11.00am Saturday 23rd October 2010

11.01.2010 Sid Thorne

The committee, members and friends of the Midlands and Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Support and Rescue Trustoffer their heartfelt condolences to Pat Thorne, on the tragic and all too early passing of her husband Sid. After a long battle with debilitating disease he slipped away quietly on Saturday 9th January 2010.

LilySid had been a club member for many years, serving as a valued member of the committee and was instrumental in the setting up of Midlands & Northern Rescue. He will be sorely missed by all.

The funeral service will be held at 1pm on Wednesday 20th January 2010 at Southport Crematorium, Southport Road, PR8 5JQ. No flowers please, but should anyone care to make a donation it will be shared between The Parkinson Society and Midlands & Northern Ridgeback Rescue.

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.
