Red Ruin by Albert Payson Terhune

As you may know, I'm a big fan of the books of Albert Payson Terhune. He was a writer in the time of the twenties and thirties of the past century. Most of his stories contained a dog, and almost all of the time this dog would be a collie.

You can imagine that I love those books, I love dogstories....

In the sixties a group of Sunnybank enthusiasts founded the Terhune Sunnybank Memorial. A group of devoted lovers of the stories, the collies, the place and the Master and the Mistress.
They do an awsome job in preserving the place and keeping the Sunnybank legacy alive.

Now the did a great discovery, in some archives they found lost stories who where only published in a newspaper in 1922 but never got published as a book. It is a mystery novel,  and it contains a collie! When I heard of this book I immediately got exited, and this week it arrived at my place. I'm totally happy, and already started reading.
I don't want to spoil the fun, so I'm gonna tell what it is all about, but it is mystery, with romance and a collie!  And I think that is enough to make it a great read.

If you are interested in this book the TSM (Terhune Sunnybank Memorial) offers those books for sale, there is a limited edition so don't wait too long, just send an email to TSMthelookout@yahoo.com and ask about the book Red Ruin.

You won't be dissapointed.

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!!!
