Judging trainee day, last year

I came across this picture today!! The funny things of Facebook nowadays, telling what you did previous year's, this pic is of last year,  it was exactly one year ago, that I took our Vivien to an event of our collieclub.
Nothing special?? Well, the day before we where at dogshow, and we didn't want to go to this event anyway, but with some pushing from several people I went anyway. I was told there would be some trainee judges, so It might be interesting to be there.
How could I know it would be a day for them to do a mini-judging, like on show.
My contact with other owners/breeders in the Netherlands is not very special, so I finally ended up talking to a Judge who was preparing the trainee's for the tryal exam.
She in some strange way got me on a list, got me a nr, and there I was with Vivien, we where in the tryal ourselves.

Vivien was not impressed, but I wasn't prepared for this, 2 trainee's needed to go over the dog, and wrote their report. While waiting for our written report, we tried some of the games going on, but that was not really my cup of tea.

In the meantime.... 1 year later, I heard most of the judges passed the exam.
I hope they learned some from my dog, as I am at the moment the only person showing from USA and Canadian bloodlines.

Well time will tell.

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!!!
all for paws dental che…
