In October 1986, Margaret Lowthian Cook and Carol Walker organized
the first club function of the newly formed San Diego Rhodesian
Ridgeback Club (SDRRC). The fun match was on a grassy site in
Kearny Mesa. The day was clear and sunny and a buffet lunch was
prepared. Everyone had a wonderful time as the club boasted
entries with 5
dogs in its first
Parade of Champions.
The goal was to bring Ridgeback
owners together to become acquainted and to have fun with their
dogs. Over 20 years later, this is still a primary function of
the club. In addition to fun, the club also supports breed rescue,
sponsors information seminars for members and guests, and promotes
education to the public about our wonderful breed.
