02.07.2017 Susan Wake's Great North Run - 10th September 2017

RunnerAs a Ridgeback owner, Susan Wake has been moved to strap on her trainers to raise money for the Trust by taking part in the Great North Run in September. Her inspiration to submit her body to all the training and incumbent pain came about almost by accident, but let's let her tell it in her own words...........

"After losing my Dalmatian to cancer I vowed I would not get another dog after having them all my life, however the house was quiet and empty without being greeted every morning Or whenever I left the house with that unconditional love they always give. I then decided to do dog boarding to sort of feel normal again, one of my first dogs was a Ridgeback called Max. I had never came across the breed before so didn't know what to expect. At first I thought there was something wrong with him? Why isn't he bothered about going for a walk? What's wrong with his belly that he feels the need to display it and all his bits when he sleeps? Is he overheating or something? Does he have something wrong with his head as he constantly has it on a table resting or any surface he can find to put it on ?? Needless to say after I researched the breed it all fell into place and that was it, fell hook line and sinker....I lasted 6 month and found a reputable  breeder after speaking to the Rescue and hence I have a Woody.This boy is my best mate and couldn't think of my life without him. I would like to raise some funds for this fantastic charity who give it their all to rehome those who have lost their way for one reason or another . My heart breaks for each and every one of them now knowing how soft, gentle, sensitive and loyal they are yet end up in rescue centres. I shall do the Great North Run with pride having the Midlands and Northern Ridgeback Rescue name on my Tshirt."

It's Calendar Time...........

In truth it's a little bit past calendar time, we would normally launch this in the Spring, but Spring seems to have passed us by this year........

Anyhow, to the point, all you good people have come through for us in the past no matter how difficult the task. We need pictures of your dogs to star in our 2018 RidgebackRescue Calendar.........by 25th June 2017!

If you would you like your dogs to feature in our 2018 Calendar, it's time to get snapping.

There are a few rules all of which can be found Here T&C's.

Only "landscape" oriented pictures are acceptable and preferably should be taken with a camera set at the highest resolution possible, and at a minimum of 300dpi (no, I don't really understand it either, but that's what the printer tells us!) I think most modern digital cameras should be capable of this. We have, in the past, been short on Winter/Christmas scenes, if you have any of those please send them in.

Photos should be submitted to merchandise@ridgebackrescue.co.uk

Naturally not all submitted pictures can be included, please don't be too despondent if your's is not selected. However, submitters of those which are selected will receive a calendar for free.

As usual, profits will go towards caring for ridgebacks that need our help!

Thank You, One and All

31.01.2017Husky Trail Arctic Challenge - 24th to 31st March 2017
 
Ridgeback Rescue Supporter Kay Pettengell is undertaking the arduous Husky Trail Arctic Challenge to raise funds for two charities (one of which is our own) in memory of her Ridgeback, Odin, and her general love of animals. This enterprise involves taking a team of dogs 260Km sledding across the frozen lakes of the Arctic. But let her tell it in her own words.............

Husky Trai Arctic Challenge"I am doing a challenge next year in loving memory of my beautiful Ridgeback Odin and for the love of animals and dogs, it's "The Husky Trail Arctic challenge" where we take a team of dogs 260KM sledding across the frozen lakes of the Arctic. I would like to raise as much money as possible for animal rescue.

The two charities I am raising money for are Midlands and Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Support & Rescue Trust and New Hope animal rescue in Abbey Wood South East London.

Helping to raise money for two wonderful charities in both the South and North of England.

Please click on the links below to read about these wonderful charities both whom are very small and rely on donations to help keep saving lives.

With love Kay X"
