Dogshow Bremen

This weekend we where in Bremen Germany, and If you also read my blog on my kennel, you probably saw that it was a great one, with super results.
But what you didn't see was the great trip we had.

Bremen has a super dogshow, and it is held in an awsome Messe. We travel by mobilehome, and I always find the camping facilities super. And behind the big Messe there is a great hotel, with behind that a terrific park, you can spend hours walking there.

So when we arived in Bremen (we did not have traffic yay) we fed the dogs, ate some ourselves, and then set foot to the park. It was really lovely wheater, not too hot, but just warm enough to leave your coats at home. We have been there for a few hours, and we met some great colliepeople there!! They told us they would support us the next day at show, esspecially Vivien, they loved how she looked.

At the end of our walking trip I wasn't sure Vivien would do all good at show, because her complete coat was in tangles with sticks and leaves in it, she looked not so pretty anymore.
But we enjoyed our walk, and so did the doggies, it relaxes us both, so we can go fresh into the ring next morning.

Showday started early on Sunday, so I think it was maybe 5:30 in the morning we already walked around over there, to make them do their duties. And pick up some new leaves.
So when the doors openend at 7AM I knew I had work to do. Get Vivien's coat clean.
We did!!! and she shined in the ring gaining excellent 3.
And Dita did even better with her Best of Breed.

Again we are very proud, but we enjoyed all of it, not only the glory in the ring.

Isn't this beautifull


Vivien, still clean!

Dita, she is so sweet

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!!!
