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 …

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
coconut shavings
pet icecream powder (that was hard to make)
very nice box of Renske wet food
and a second toy!!! a sqeeky car

We already look forward to the next box!!!
