Intrepid Sam and Sharon went to break new ground with the RIN Stall at the IPO

in Nottingham.


The nice folks at The British Rottweiler Sports Dog Club, invited us to 'set up stall'

at the IPO Nationals and Klubsieger 2018 Competition.

New to me too! but take a scan at their website/Facebook pages

they are promoting our favourite breed with obedience and

advanced training. As usual, click here to see their pages for details.

Its too late for this particular competition and I am not sure if you need to be a member

to compete but hey, joining this club looks like it can only be good for you,

your dog/s and the breed.

Sam and Sharon had a really good day meeting up with these nice folks, they got wet!

Well, soaked seems to be a better adjective but they were there to promote RIN and

promote they did. It was rewarded with cuddles from a puppy from a rescued litter.

Here are a few photos from the day. Thank you's to Sharon and Sam for the brilliant efforts:

One Wet Stand & One very Cuddly Pup!



August 19th was a special day for us at RIN. Ann would have been 71

A few of us gathered in Oswestry (The Queens Head) to remember Ann.

We had a quiet lunch and remembered.

Ann 71

Ann Evans 19th August 1947 ~ March 9th 2018

Thank you for all the donations to the great lady's memory.

And especial thanks to the person that has doubled the collection - Anonymously!

We are hatching plans for a memorial and an announcement is due!


You will just have to wait to see the entries for the 2019 calendar.

We will inform you when the 2019 calendar is available for purchase

A big thank you to all who entered.

We will publish the results when we have cogitated!




Faced with a near impossible task after Kim's
short notice Departure, Wendy Nutland
stood up to the plate and dug in her heels ( no doubt taking that deep breath) and
just got on with it. With no experience of RIN's Auction she rallied troops, organised
items and raised the huge sum of £1243 towards Harley's Eye operation.

Fantastic effort Wendy and troops. WELL DONE!

We still need stuff, so:-
Any Auction/Stall/Tombola/Raffle items to a RIN member please;

Harley Again
or you can contact Wendy via email by clicking this link.

Thank you's too go to BRA For having us at the Championship show
we are most grateful!
for BRA's continued support, and it was hot stuff this year!

On the left is the scorched grass and setup at BRA this year, we hope you all stayed hydrated!
Notice there are two wind vanes there, docked and not, these are also available directly from The RIN shop.

On the right are some of the raffle prizes.


The great LASER show August 4th

Was again brilliant!

Anything you might have that we can usefully use on the stall
for raffles or tombola will be gratefully received.


daffs It's SPRINGTIME! daffs

Everything is changing and growing.

We are no exception, our main change is obvious

Not so obvious are the personnel changes.

After many years fundraising for RIN, Kim Cussans is off looking for

pastures new and we should like to thank her for all the effort

and time rehoming rotts and raising funds, Good luck Kim!

But adapt we must, so

Sam Wills is taking charge of communication via the web site

she and Mike will take charge of the annual Calendar - watch for

exciting news about that here!

The Rott Auction which Kim has run over the years,

will now be run by Wendy Nutland. Wendy can be contacted via Facebook

or you can contact Wendy via email by clicking this link.


We apologise for saying that we would attend Northampton with our stall and goodies.

We are so short of stock that we would have only had 'space' to sell!

If you have memorabilia, gadgets or gizmos, anything to do with Rottweilers

that you are fed up with seeing about your home, let us 'Rescue it' and find it

a good home, in the process we will hopefully extend our rescue funds.

So come on people, have a look about in attics, cellars and in the back of garages and cupboards

there must be something? Let us know, if you can bring it to a show that would be wonderful

or, we'll try to pick it up. If you know a member of our lovely volunteers they would be happy to take if from you.

Go on, have another quick look - please!


We enjoyed the Midland Championship show
So, did you manage to find that little trinket that you never knew you always wanted?

Thank you for coming to see us and all the good wishes, but the biggest thank you is for the increase in funds for our dogs!

2018 MRC

A tribute was paid to Ann. A minutes Silence in her memory followed by applause,
we are so grateful to everyone for this show of emotion to Ann's memory.

People were so very generous on the stand too.
Sam didn't know what was coming when One lady - we dont know who she was - spent £20 on tombola - nearly wiped us out £10 on raffle tickets -
another £10 on tombola and £10 on dog bowls. Her poor son was searching for tickets for ages - had to give him 2 bags to carry it all with.
Thank you so much - you know who you are! Margaret Roath donated a crisp £20 note,
Others were generous with their change asking it be added to Ann's memorial fund, we were so overwhelmed.
Even more folks turned up with bags of stuff for the tombola or to sell, items included a dog guard and books.
A 'guess the weight of the cake' competition was organised and even the two ladies who correctly guessed were very happy to split the first prize!

Sam donated a beautiful metal Rottweiler Weather vane for a raffle prize, and a box of toiletries made the second
followed up by Easter egg prizes for 3rd and 4th.

The Midland Rottweiler Club donated a substantial sum for Ann so all in all it was a very successful day.
The biggest thanks though must go to Sam - especially Sam for organising,
Tanya, Mike and Sharon for running the whole thing at really short notice,
and not only that - they intend doing it all again at Northampton So watch out folks, come see us again there, we can do it all again!!
Sam's comment was she felt like an Amateur trying to fill Ann's big boots - SAM, ANN WOULD BE PROUD OF YOU ALL!

Show 2 show2
The Stall
And doesn't it look good enough to eat!!



We hope you enjoyed Crufts, it was a bit of a downer for us, but we waved the flag.


Looks like everybody had a good time at Kims last Aution!
We hope you got a good bargain.
Here's to the next one!!

Thanks again Kim!


That Clare Lacey; She's done it again too!

£652 for RIN.

**Click here for September Doggo Lotto result**

and to enter the October draw.

If you entered last month - do a couple of extra tickets and we can see if we can keep

it over that magic £1200 and see if we can't push it in RIN's direction again for the bigger prize.

Clicking for the results will take you to the usual bit below so's you can enter....(please!)

Jane Whittaker Runs a licenced and therefore legal lottery
for the benefit of rescued dogs. It even has a video'd draw!

And the result for September 2018;
the single winner ticket number 40; R M Scariat winning £403.34

Caki Bravo was the main benificery.

The Named Kennel for September is:

"The Harmony Fund"

Let's try to keep it over the £1200


You can watch the draw on facebook by CLICKING HERE.

What happens is a multiple of £2 is donated, and each £2 donation has a number allocated. At the end of the month
One number is randomly picked, the winning number will receive a third of the pot,
last April for instance, one third went to Rottweilers in need and the remaining third to the dog rescue that took
the most votes cast by the players. Don't forget to add your vote when you pays yer money!
The main monthly rescues chosen will alternate between Caki Bravo in Bosnia
and the different UK rescues that supply help to Caki.

From September 17 Jane is trying another format for prize distribution where every Rescue that gets 20 votes or more
will get a pro-rata share of one third of the money. The idea is to give the less well represented rescues a chance,
an even better reason to buy a few more tickets.

Lets see if we can't get RIN up there again...

It is run solely on Facebook. (search for 'The doggy lottery' on Facebook)
SO, how do we get a piece of this action then;

4:  By setting up a monthly standing order using the details above.
