NEWS 2011

LilyIt is with great sadness that we received the news from France of the death of Brian Firth.

Brian, alongside his wife Sheila, served as a committee member for many years, eventually becoming vice chairman. Indeed, the whole of the Firth Family worked tirelessly for the club, which was very much appreciated by all.

We are sure that club members will join with us in offering our heartfelt condolences to Sheila and Ian at this difficult time.

22.07.2011 Running DogAutumn Sponsored Walk in aid of Rescue - Sunday 18th September 2011

Do you fancy a gentle stroll in the mellow fruitfulness of mid September, 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 Sunday 18th September 2011

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.
