Concours d'elegance already 1 year ago

Yesterday I posted a wordless wednesday picture, and I wanted to tell more about it, it seemed that last sunday was already one year ago, we had this amazing event of the dutch Borzoi club.

The dutch borzoi club had called all members to come for a great parade with all our borzois, in the main ring of an Arab horse show. They liked to have a nice intermezzo in their show, and it was for the borzoiclub a nice way to present our breed in a very beautifull way.

There was only 1 important thing, we all needed to dress as beautifull as possible, it was wonderfull to see, that all people did their extreme best to look like persons from long forgotten times.
Everyone was so beautifull dressed, and it was really special to see all those beautifull borzois with their owners.
Mr Andre vd Broek spoke about our beautifull breed, in the big ring.
I felt very special, and very pretty and Anna and me where selected in the big group with the last 3.  It was amazing. Afterwards we went to look at the amazing Arab horses wow!!!!

I never been on a horse show, and never to a concours d'elegance so I did my extreme best to dress as pretty as possible. My choice was a Victorian outfit, and I went in black because it would look better with a white borzoi.

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 …

World animal day

Today is world animal day!! I Always tought that this was a day that was made up to get some more sales for animals treats.
But I came across a newsfeed, and it said it was the dying- or name day (that was not really clear)  of the holy Saint Fransicus van Assisi. As it goes in the story, he died on the evening of october 3th, but in the time he was living the date didn't change at 00:00 o'clock, but the day changed at the moment it became dark outside, that made his dying day october 4th. Well that was someting I didn't know.

Saint Franciscus was being well know for many things, but i'm not really a religious person so I can't tell much of that. I only know that he was  very fond of animals and he made sure they were ok.
There are also legends that he could talk to birds.

No wonder he was made the Holy Saint of the animals.

Now so many many years later, a lot op people celebrate world animal day, but I don't know how many people know of Saint Fransiscus.

At fi…

Lucky unpacking the Snuffelbox

First of all, again a long delay in blogging, but I hope to get back on track again

This summer we got a great Snuffelbox again!! And there was a little competition going on. I had to film the unpacking of the box. And not me unpacking, but one of the dogs. I choose Lucky, because when I ordered this box I had to fill in a name of the dog, so I just randomly picked his name.

So Lucky needed to unpack this box, and I had to film it.




There where again some great nice goodies in this box
There was a lollypop, made from beef
a bag of chickenstrips
a supercool toy of a tropical bird, (with sound)
a chewy starfish, for dentalcare

pet icecream powder (that was hard to make)
very nice box of Renske wet food
