Albert Payson Terhune Stamp Project

Great initative from the Terhune Sunnybank Memorial!! They are collecting signs to convince the U.S Postal Stamp comitee that there must be a stamp to honour Albert Payson Terhune. This stamp should be in a series of American writers. And I think that he deserves this. He is ofcourse of big influence in collies, but also in his writing. Without Lad, we maybe wouldn't have Lassie. Because of his stories, alot of people wanted to buy a collie, and many breeders in the USA started with a collie because of Sunnybank and APT.

A few years ago the TSM also tried to raise signs, and let our hero Albert Payson Terhune be on a stamp, but they rejected to. 2016 must be the year of APT. So I myself have also started collecting signs. And it goes pretty well. Altough it is a tough job over here in the Netherlands, many many collie people don't know about Terhune, and since I'm not able to write about him in our Dutch collie magazine anymore, it is not an easy job.

In the meantime I did fairly well, but for all who wants to sign petitions, contact marilynrh@aol.com
and ask for  a petitionform, look on this page aswell https://www.facebook.com/albertpaysonterhunestampproject?fref=ts

There is more info on the stamp project!!!! It would be so much fun If we could accomplish this

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!!!
