Interactive collie event

Our collie club in the Netherlands is having their 50th anniversary. Yesterday there was a clubshow, but due to work I was not able to go. But today they had a sort of interactive day. Lucky and Star, where the happy ones who went with us today. The weather was not so pretty, but that was no problem. All around the field where activities, such as agility, flyball, and things like that. Due to the age of the youngsters we where not able to do all of the games.

So we did what was possible, I started with Star in a Rally Obedience trial. I'm a real showdog person, where a dog needs to stand, and with obedience the most used command is sit. So that was a bit of a struggle, she did all kinds of funny moves but we managed it both very nicely. I wasn't familiar with the rules so I made a lot of mistakes myself. With Lucky it was a little bit better, because I did the track before with Star. He gained 2 points more than his sister just because of that.

Then it was onto the games. Big fun! Both of the youngsters knew how that worked. I had to do a trial and the dogs where walking next to me, easy peasy. At the end of the trial where search games, at home they play sometimes with interactive games, so they loved this. Cookies where found super quick, and they wouldn't stop searching for more.

There was much more to do, but I felt after those games their heads where full with so much info, that we decided to stop to participate in any further activities. In the car they both fell asleep in a minute. I'm proud of them. We came home with a nice certificate, a nice start when you are only 5 months old.

The collie standard by Mia Ejerstad

Another great book, and I happen to be the lucky girl who has both of her books. It is the same, but the small one is the first one she published and the larger one is the new revisited one.

Why is this book a great one??? Well this one will explain with picutres to go with it, how the ideal collie should look. All parts of the collie come along while you read this book. Headtypes, what is a perfect shape of a head, what is acceptable, and various faults, in bigger and lesser degree. But also how angulation needs to be in front and back, and what is an acceptable tail! I think that it is very nice that all ellements come in to vision with many drawings,  because while explaining a form in letters, it is far more easy to see for youselve on a picture.

Many beautifull drawing from the hand of Mia are in this book, she really knows how to capture the beauty of the collie and make the standard of our breed into vision.
I do go over this book so many times, and it gives me a clear view of …

Snuffelbox!!!!

Snuffelbox, sounds great doensn't it?? I've been ordering the Woefbox for a while, and after 4 boxes I had a lot of treats for my dogs, that's cool ofcoarse but I don't want my dogs to be fat, so I decided to just quit the Woefbox.

Now I was almost finished with all the treats from the box, I found on the internet a similar kinda box, called Snuffelbox!!!! I got curious of it, so I decided to check it out.

Fun thing is, the Snuffelbox gives some percentage of the income to great sources like shelters and stuff, so while ordering a box, everytime I will give to charity aswell!
On the other hand it is a bit more expensive then the Woefbox, so that is a consideration.
With ordering I could say if I wanted to order for a small, medium, large or giant breed, so that is very handy also, and I could order it for one month, every month, or every tide of the year.

Now letts go and see what is in the box!!!
