The Great Outdoors

That sounds cool, don't it? Well the wheatherforcast was so wicked this morning I actually didn't know what to do. This morning there was a lot of rain, and thunder and lightning, so I didn't expect it to be dry at all.
But when the morning went on, the rain started to clear up and the sun was starting to shine.
I only had to check on the tick radar, yes we do have a tick radar in the Netherlands, and it seemed it would be ok. So the forrest was the goal for today!!!! All the dogs love it and I hadn't been in the forest for a while.

The 4 oldest colliegirls where the Lucky ones. Why?? Well 3 of them are in season, and I wanted to give the young boy at home a little break. And for myself it is the easiest to go out with not more then 4 dogs at once, when I'm alone with no help.

I was totally covered tickproof as you can say, wellies on, longsleef fleece jacket, and it was soo hot, but the girls loved it.
We have been away for more then 2 hours, and when we arived back with the car I was soaked up in sweat and the girls where nice and tired. (What is very important to have water with you when going on such a long trip, esspecially for the doggies)

So after a few hours we came home, safe and sound I checked the girls for ticks, and there was just 1!! I'm happy about that.
I think when we where at home for maybe 30 minutes the rain started pooring again, so nice trip in beautifull Gaasterlân in Fryslân!!!

quick pictures of the girls, and the beautifull Frisian landscape

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, 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…
