Fun in Almelo

Well, what can I say, sometimes things start strange, just like the match yesterday,
the day started sunny and a bit confusing. At clubmatches you somethimes don't really know who is judging what! You get the forms for entering show, and on big international dogshows, you exactly know who is to Judge your breed.
At small matches like this one in Almelo, there is a list of judges, most it is 2 or 3, and most of the time those judges can do multiple breeds, so you can have a fair mainring. On the form where standing 2 names this time, mr Jipping, and mr Rutten, I know both judges, and I know mr Jipping being a sighthound person, and mr Rutten has judged some of our collies before.

 So I entered Lucky, Vivien and Anna thinking that mr Rutten would Judge the collies, and mr Jipping would Judge the Borzoi.
It was exactly the opposite, Now I had to take Lucky and Vivien with mr Jipping and Anna to mr Rutten,   it was no problem, I'm proud to show our dogs to everyone.
It was pretty funny that mr Rutten knows me from herdinggroup, FCI group 1, and he was confused too, that I came in the ring with a borzoi!!

It was the showdebut for my little boy Glamourace Collies Viva Las Vegas aka Lucky! he became an very promising 1..., and had a superb report, his auntie Vivien gained an excellent 2.

And Anna last but not least got and excellent 1 BOB and became 5th Best in Show. I'm so proud of all of the dogs, they did great.
Thanks to mr Gerard Jipping for judging the collies, and thanks to mr Dick Rutten for judging my borzoi Anna and both of the judges for deciding togheter the result of Anna in the mainring!!! Because she became Best in show 5, and that was a great achievement for us!!!!

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 …

Judging at dogshow-ringtraining

Last year, in December, yes I know a while back, I judged at the showtraining event of Dogshow-ringtraining Drouwenermond.

I was asked if I wanted to do judging of their last day of the training season, to make a nice ending of their trainingsyear.
Ofcoarse I'm not a real conformation Judge, but I have been intensively showing dogs since 2004, so I know how things are going in the showring.

So in december it was their end of the season, and my first ever judging apointment.
There where multiple groups of dogs and it really went just like a real dogshow, only I went over the dogs, not judging the dogs, but taking notice of their handler if they where doing the correct thing.
Showing me the bite of their dog, gaiting them and presenting them.

For every dog was made a judging report with points, so that was really curious for me too.
I was so focused on all aspects I didn't really know who was my nr 1 handler.

So when they calculated points I was just as curious as all the partic…

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!!!
