Going to dogshow, roadtrip xxl

I like to go to dogshows, but sometimes things go very interesting, like our trip this weekend to Spiesen. We had a drive I will not soon forget.

Well, here something about our road trip to Spiesen!!!! Spiesen is with a normal car a bit more over 5 hours drive, but with our mobile home it would normally take about 6 hours. That is far, but hey, nice Judge so why not. Driving was ok until we where across the border in Germany. We had very early on a detour. So we just drove and it wasn't really bad. Then another detour, (my German is not great, but I can read "gespert" and "umleitung") We didn't notice it early enough, so we needed to turn around, then another detour, a small mountainroad, and all of a sudden a blockade, so I had to go out of the mobilehome, and navigate my dad, while he was turning on this very small road. We found a gasstation, ( thank god) and we filled the tank, and asked how to be on the highway as fast as we could, that was ofcourse not possible, so we just continued on those small roads in the mountains.
When we where about 10 minutes from the arival our navigationsystem told us turn right, so we did and it seemed that the navigationsystem was wrong, so again 15 minutes from arival. When we where at 5 minutes from arival and again, detour. We where so tired because our drive now took almost 7 hours, and I predicted that we could drive quicker to a place in Denmark then go here.
Finally we arived on the street where we needed to be, we turned right, and the road seemed to go up verticaly!!! Our mobilehome was in first gear and really scratching the tires, and it started to smell not so nice. We where very happy that we arived. So we parked and I should go out and walk the dog. I opened the door and landed in a pile of plants that would sting very hard, so my legs where itching the whole evening.
I have to say the next day the show was very nice!!! So our trip was not all for nothing. But to make it even greater, my dad got a tick in his arm, it was raining a couple of times very heavily, and I found out my shoes where not really ok anymore. So I trew them away.
Finally Dita did great scoring a Reserve and that will be a full point because the dog who beat her was already champion. Yay.
Time to go home. Well as you can guess. Again so many detours that we decided not to drive home all the way at once.
This morning we arived safe and sound in Friesland, where it is nice and flat, and no mountains!!!

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!!!
