A new Champion

I'm still over the moon and so proud, our Anna became Dutch champion.
When we got to our breeder in Germany I had hopes for a beautifull white borzoigirl. We looked at her when she was 3 weeks old, and fell in love with her imediatly.
Never could we dream she would have such a great showcareer.
We picked her up at 8 weeks and she was introduced into our colliegang.
She was shown only twice as a baby, and twice as a puppy, we didn't want her to loose interest in showing.

When she was 9 weeks and 1 week old she gained her first Best of Breed. A few months later my dad had shown her, and she was awarded with a juniorpoint, then again a few months later I showed her myself again and she was Best bitch. She now had 2 full points, but on that day she also became Dutch Junior Champion and that is also good for another point. There we where with already 3 points. At the near end of the year we showed her again and she was again best bitch!! Now the score was 4 points, now we had to wait until she was 27 months to complete her title. (Here in the Netherlands a dog must be over 27 months to claim the title)

In the meantime we did show her some times but not that much, mostly going to Belgium, where she became also a junior champion.
Last weekend in Rotterdam was the first time she could be really claim her title, and ofcourse I was nervous, I showed so many years already but this moments do frighten me.
She easily won her class, and I had to wait for the rest of the classes to finish. Finally we had to go into the ring again. Anna as always  was happy to show (she really loves it) so she floated trough the ring, and the Judge did not really had a hard time and awarded her with best bitch!!!!!!
Wow, I was so happy, and so was Anna, because we really are a team, we feel eachother. In the meantime the reserve had to be chosen but I was so happy I don't really recal all what happened.

She did not make it against the best dog, but that was for me not a big deal, ofcourse having a Best of Breed is the crowning glorie, but having the title at only 28 months of age, I never had a dog do that before!!!!

We are still with our head in the clouds, but I don't think Anna really knows, she just goes out with her colliefriends enjoying life and waiting for the next show to come, be a happy team with me again in the ring......

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!!!
