President’s Report
Dear Members
In the last report I mentioned Sunday morning listening on ABC Radio National, and this time I am going
to talk about it again! I usually do the ironing on Sunday morning, so find that listening to the radio quite
therapeutic. Watching TV while I am ironing leads to
disaster, and don’t ask how I know this for a fact. The
report that attracted my attention on this occasion was
about the huge rise in allergies, to such things as peanuts (in particular), dairy products etc, in children.
The House of Lords in England (the highest court in
the United Kingdom) has said in a recent case that it is
no longer good advice to tell parents that newborn
babies should not be given any exposure whatsoever
to things like peanuts and dairy products in case they
are allergic to them. This is because some research is
now indicating that far from reducing these allergies,
it may be precisely what is making them worse on the
basis that very early exposure while the immune system is developing is in fact what prepares the body for
the future. Seemingly doctors are now in a quandary
about what to tell parents of newborns, so some are
refusing to give any advice at all on the matter. A
while ago I discussed some research indicating that
intestinal parasites seemed to reduce allergies, asthma
and the likes of irritable bowel syndrome. There is a
doctor in the USA, who, having tested himself first
with tapeworms, is actually infesting his patients with
tapeworm (in a controlled way!!) and having good
results in combating allergies, asthma and the likes of
irritable bowel syndrome. As I said last time, why
shouldn’t the same apply to dogs with respect to the
increase in allergies? As with all things there has to be
balance, but I do wonder if perhaps we over protect
our best friends with worming tablets, cleanliness,
manufactured foods etc etc?
This brings me to the Secretary’s Report which appeared in the last magazine. Kate mentioned feeding a
natural diet to dogs, and talked about the connection to
illness etc in our dogs. I am convinced of the connection. For a couple of years now the red meat I feed my
dog(s) (which is only one part of the daily diet) is for
humans (the cheapest mince or whatever is available)
because I became very concerned at the preservatives
in the ‘not for human consumption’ pet meat that we
used to buy. While some brands of this pet meat are
probably OK, others have preservatives that are surely
not at all good for long term health. And yes, I do also
worry about the hormones, antibiotics etc in the meat
for humans, but at the moment I hope this may be
lesser of two evils. Kate also talked about Juliette de
Baïracli Levy’s book “The Complete Herbal Handbook
for the Dog and Cat”; I have a copy (bought 20 years
ago!!), and it is a fascinating book. Some of it I wonder
about, for example she claims to have cured rabies, and
certainly it would be difficult to access many of the
fresh herbs to which she refers, but the book does provide a lot to think about. She is extremely against
things like inoculations for parvovirus and worming
tablets, and offers remedies for these and for distemper.
She does actually mention Ridgebacks when she is
giving her cure for Parvovirus – classing Ridgebacks
among the breeds who ‘have remained more “natural”
and less domesticated’ and thus able to feed their puppies for as long as sixteen weeks (harmful early weaning being part of the Parvovirus problem according to
her). Some of her remedies, such as her ‘saviour tea’
are great, and her absolute belief in such things as
honey, oatmeal and raw meat is persuasive. If only one
could just take a deep breath, have faith (and time) and
do as she recommends …
Until next time.

THE WESTERN RIDGE MAY 2008
View from the Ridge
Some pretty strange things have happened to me in the last few months, I can tell you. I had
some puppies, and this accounted for why I had been feeling so fat, so hungry always and
so out of sorts that just going upstairs at home made me puff and pant. Being my first experience of these matters, the puppies came as quite a surprise to me, but not, apparently, to
my humans who had for some time before THAT HORRIBLE DAY been trying to force
me to sleep in a nasty big wooden box which they referred to as the ‘whelping box’. It was
no substitute for my proper bed which has a soft comfortable mattress and nice blankets. I
try not to think too much about THAT HORRIBLE DAY because it ranks up there in awfulness with the day I got hit by the car. Anyway, I am only going to say that on THAT
HORRIBLE DAY I felt really bad from early morning right through to the night time, but
by the end of it instead of there being one of me there were seven of us. Once there were
seven of us I saw the point of the wooden box, and it became my home for several weeks. A
few days after THAT HORRIBLE DAY I actually got the hang of the motherhood thing
and I quickly became very good at it. I loved my little babies dearly and took very great
care of them. I washed them, fed them and never once trod on any of them even though it
did get very crowded in that wooden box as the six of them became inexplicably larger and
more active by the week.
When the puppies started being given solid food, my humans and I had some issues about
my feeding regime. Until then I had been fed vast quantities of food – I couldn’t believe my
good fortune – but the supply started dwindling as the puppies started to be given all sorts
of yummy things which I was not allowed to touch (or not when my humans were watching
anyway). I insisted on being given the same number of meals as the puppies, so I did end up
with lots of food over the day, even though I could still have managed lots more.
I must say that I really enjoyed playing with the puppies for hours on end but they did
eventually begin to take over my life in every possible way. They found my real bed which
had been given back to me complete with the comfortable mattress and nice blankets, and
they annexed it entirely so I couldn’t get on it and had to retire to the awful wooden box.
They ate my pitiful quantities of food as well as their own (I was fed separately but had to
be really quick because they could find me anywhere). They managed to be absolutely everywhere and all at once so I could never be on my own, and as well as the toys bought just
for them they took all my toys as well including my dear old Kong. I knew they couldn’t
destroy the Kong but the squeaking chicken I did have to confiscate and hide from them
because enough is enough. The chicken is yellow with red feet and beak, and it is flat with
its little legs sticking straight out so it looks like a Peking Duck. Actually it was bought by
one of the new puppy owners for the puppies to play with, but I decided I wanted it and that
was that as far as ownership was concerned. I still have it now and I carry it round carefully
in my mouth so it doesn’t squeak, or I run down the corridor and jump on it from a great
height, stamping on it with my front paws so it squeaks extremely loudly and makes everyone jump.
The puppies are all gone to their new homes now and I do quite miss them, especially my
favourite one Romeo. He stayed on with us for a couple of weeks after the others, which
was great. I did think it might be OK if he stayed on permanently, but then he started using
my very precious TV watching cozy bed (different to my other bed mentioned earlier) and I
realized that there was room for only one of us. One of the girl puppies has gone to a human
family member and she comes back here a couple of times a week to visit so I can have my
fill of playing and being a mummy again. When all is said and done I am really happy to
have my bed(s) back, my food back, my toys back and my life back. Last week we even
went for one of our great long walks in the bush - the first real walk since the puppies were
born - and I realized what I had been missing.
Bye for now,

Tishan and the “Downsizing”
Tishan celebrated her 10th birthday on 23rd February
2008 at our new property in the Hills. I guess
“downsizing” occurs to many of us when “freedom”
beckons and retirement looms.
It was decided that 42 acres was just too much responsibility to leave when travelling. After viewing 10 properties we finally purchased the 5 acre block we were taken
to view first by the Real Estate Agent. I heard George
telling a friend that we “really had bought our land for
the horse to live out his old age.”
As some of you would know moving from a larger acreage to a smaller one also means that all the things that
were kept “just in case” now have to be considered for
disposal by sale or many visits to the landfill.
We finally moved on 1st February with 4 truckloads of
furniture and equipment. Good job the new place has a
huge shed and 2 stables!
Of course none of this concerned Tishan who settled
into the house immediately. After an initial sniff around
she could not fmd any sign of the cat that had previously
lived here so relaxed and watched us with interest as we
unpacked over 100 boxes of worldly goods. Why do we
need so many things?
Having settled in it was time to venture out on daily
exercise. We are so lucky to be within easy walking
distance of a regional park and natural bush land walks.
Wildlife is abundant and kangaroos are within metres
every day. This amazed me as we are now closer to sub-
urbia that before. Ridgies do not need any prompting
to give chase when a kangaroo pops its head out from
the bush consequently I have developed muscles on
my arms from hanging on to Tishan’s leach.
Since I told you about Tishan’s skin problem I have
started her on a daily Omega 3 fatty acid supplement
which has cured her dry, itchy skin and given her shiny
eyes and she loves it-well it does go in her mouth!
Also no more Zyrtec required.
At the end of 2007 I noticed a lump on her toe. A visit
to our vet resulted in an surgery to remove it. After a
biopsy I was informed that the tumour was not malignant but that lumps at e transition between the cells of
the pad and the toe have a tendency to turn “nasty” so I
was relieved that I had noticed the deformity early.
Keep a watch for similar lumps on the toes of your
dog, as they are very easy to miss. Dogs tend to have
health problems as they age just like humans) and earlier this year her left eye began to tear constantlyanother visit to the vet determined that she was growing a second set of eyelashes which were rubbing
against her cornea causing irritation. Hopefully the
surgery will cure her problem but as more lashes can
grow I have to be vigilant as I can imagine how painful
the condition would be.
Oh well it is time for our walk-Tishan says that she
will need a retread if I walk her anymore.

Congratulations to all the Winners
The weather put on a stunning display for our two shows, as can be seen from the photograph below, and the scene
was set for a very successful event. Everybody seemed to be enjoying the day and there were a number of members
of the public who came along to have a look at our lovely RRs. All the members made them very welcome and they
went away with a good impression of our Club, our Members and our dogs. Thank you to everybody for making such
a success of the day.
There are more photos on the following pages. The “official” photos will be available when the critique is published.

A Big Thank You and an Update
Our latest family member Chief has been with us for a
few months now and he has very quickly adapted and
settled. He has decided - after placing us on a period of
probation - that he is quite happy to adopt us as his new
family. We consider ourselves very honoured.
He is quite a character and a little bit of a larrikin. He
has a great sense of Ridgeback humour. Like most
Ridgebacks he has an excellent time clock and reminds
us promptly of the most important things in his
day……his walk time and of course his feed time.
He has become great friends with Kahale, our long time
RR companion, who has very definitely accepted him on
her own terms ☺ They definitely won’t share a bed……
ever !
…… but they do share everything else including a great liking of the occasional treat and the
conspiracy skills needed to wangle as many as possible
from us.
He has beautiful manners when it matters the most and
he knows how to be on his best behaviour when a doggy
treat is in the offing as you can see….. You didn’t honestly think that we get this kind of devoted attention
without a treat :)
So Bob and I just wanted to say a Big Thankyou to the
Rhodesian Ridgeback Club and it’s Rescue Service in particular to Anita Wordsworth who put so much
time and effort into placing Chief in our care and making sure that everyone got on well together and things
went smoothly. Thank you also to Frank Wordsworth
who helped to convince Kahale that it really was going
to be a good idea and what a great friend Chief would
be, while at the same time helping to teach Chief some
good manners around an old lady. (Kahale, not me, by
the way!!).
We are so pleased and proud to have Chief as part of
our family so thankyou once again for considering us
and giving us the opportunity to take another Ridgeback
Boy into our hearts ☺
Regards
Dianne and Bob Graves.

Juliette de Bairacli Levy’s “Saviour Tea”
from The Complete Herbal Handbook for the Dog
and Cat (paperback) published by Faber & Faber
1985 edition.
This is taken from her section on parvovirus and is a
consolidation of what she says. I have found it useful
for bitches when they are have just given (or are still
giving) birth and need something more fortifying than
water but not solid. It is also useful for sick or stressed
dogs of any age, and once they have tasted it they seem
to come back for more even if they will not eat or drink
anything else.
Fresh (or boiled) water
Honey
Glucose
Sea salt
She says: ‘the exact formula to every tablespoon measure is: into the barley and sage water add one level teaspoon of pure honey, and one of glucose, and half or
less of a small teaspoon of sea salt. If the salt is ejected
use less. The tea should be used as an internal soother
and fortifier; an emetic is not required’.
solution of sage tea’ (p.200), but there is no further
detail given of either sage tea or barley water! In the
book there is no recipe for sage tea (that I can find anyway). As Juliette de B L is very scathing about the
dried or powdered herbs and will only use fresh herbs,
For the barley water you can soak pearl barley overnight and drain off the water for use in the mix.
I generally use just boiled water or barley water (if I
have time to buy the pearl barley and soak it) with
honey, glucose and a very small pinch of salt. I give
only small amounts, a cupful, at any one time, but frequently (every half an hour) and am lazy about measuring quantities. So probably for a cup of water(barley if
I have it) I would add a tablespoon of honey, a couple
of teaspoons of glucose (for some reason we always
seem to have a packet of powdered glucose in the cupboard) and a small pinch ordinary salt.
I don’t see why this would not work well for people
too, and I think she based her recipe on one used for
children suffering from dysentery!
In fact she also says: ‘Use barley water instead of plain
water and make the barley water with an extra strong
