Kickbiking

I like to go exercise with the dogs, it keeps them fit, and that is important, not just for in the showring, but for their own health is is better if they get proper exercise, and it is fun for me too, to do something with the dogs.

Today was a great day for kickbiking (dogscootering) again. I went with Dita to Gaasterlan to go with her in the woods. I prefer not to go when the temperature is above 18 celcius, but today it didn't even become higher then 15 celcius, and it was pretty windy. And the ground in the forest is a bit more gentle on the dogspaws, that is why I prefer going there, and that is also a big reason not to go biking with a hot temperature. We don't feel that same heat as the dogs feel at the soles of their paws.

But it has been dry for a while, so the trail was complety dried out and very sandy, making it a very hard tour this time. Normally we are back with the car in no time but now we both had to work hard to get forward. We really needed more then half an hour to do 4 km's, for Dita and me that is slow, very slow.

Before we went, I looked on the internet, for the tick-forcast. It seems the whole of the Netherlands is at a high risk of ticks. I was a little bit afraid of going, but I just sprayed on a little Frontline spray onto her paws and went anyway. At home I directly checked for ticks but we are lucky!! no ticks at all! I must say we really avoided the grassy areas, because there is where we get the most ticks from.

No pictures of todays journey, we where way too busy running and biking!!!

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!!!


1 jar of premade icepopcicles for the doggies!!!
all for paws dental che…
