Welcome!

Sheyru is *stunning* - I show, and I love seeing these dogs in the ring, they are very impressive indeed. I grew up with one as my dad's neighbour had one from a pup and it was allowed to wander about freely (this was in a very small hamlet in the English countryside with a couple of houses) and since a child I loved its strong gait and completely patient temper. He used to lay in the road in the sunshine and wouldn't move when the postman drove through...

Beautiful dogs, and welcome!

Why thankyou! He is a very gorgeous boy if I do say so myself...
Yes, I have started to get interested in showing him lately, if you could
give me any tips on presentation, leading etc. that would be fab!
Very sweet about the ridgeback, ignoring the postie. Wish mine would do that! But instead Ruby is the alarm system, and Sheyru is the big guns/backup. They're a funny pair.

They're a very cute pair - I bet you look funny walking a teeny dog with such a huge one, lol!
Showing is really fun, just check out any local ringcraft classes as they'll help you learn how to best show off your dog, etc. It's fairly easy really, I trained my girl from a pup to be in the ring, but she's heavily groomed too. I long for a breed I can just brush and take in...!

Meant to say - where about in Aus are you? I'm off to Brisbane this Christmas in the Gold Coast and leave in November; I hear you're in for a 40 degree Summer?!

Thanks for the info. That just helps confirm that a Rhodesian could be a good fit for my family. I've done some research on them, but talking to someone who owns one is more reassuring to me. I'm still a sucker for mutts but my husband wants a purebred, so from what I've read and heard they could be a good breed for him.

He is a very handsome dog, And it's nice to meet you too

Haha, yes people do tend to look. We went to the pet shop to go and buy jackets for them, and we had to get the smallest size there and the biggest size there. ha ha!

Will look intothe showing, thanks!

I'm in Western Australia, I have been over to the Gold Coast and LOVE it.
Make sure to visit dreamworld,seaworld etc.

It sounds like we are, It's already hit 30 degrees today.
so now i'm at home instead of out with the horses, as i'm very sensitive to the heat..

Haha, I've never seen snow before, or touched it. In fact, I've never been out of Australia before...

Aww, you sound like my boyfriend - he lives in Aus, he came over this Christmas and the snow just completely baffled him! First time he'd seen it - I guess you Aussies don't get much in the way of it, no! I'm so looking forward to the wildlife in Aus though, all those lizards and birds.
