Spoiling the dogs???

Ok, on some days, things don't go as you want to. Today was a day like that. So when I drove home from my job I had to go by the Welkoop, that is an agriculture store in the Netherlands. Actually I didn't need anything. I have toys, enough treats, nothing was really eaten, gone and empty, so why should I even go.
I don't know, some people will buy shoes, or eat chocolate, and I like to spoil the dogs.

The first thing I bought was really a treat, especially for Vivien, it is a puzzle. And according to the box it is a 4 in 1 puzzle, so in the upcoming days I'm gonna figure out how that will work. And hopefully I can make a nice picture of a videoclip of it.

Second thing and third, I bought, are 2 teethcleaning products. Maybe that is not really something the dogs think of being spoiled, but it will benefit to their health.  Because of petsmile month, I wanted to buy it now and try it. Hopefully I will see results before the month is over. I still have my denti fresh teeth powder, ( look at one of my last posts) but as I told before, that product is discontinued so when that jar is empty I will need a new product.

I bought a foam, wich I will use on the puppies (wel 9 months in not a puppy anymore) because they have beautifull white clean teeth. And I bought the gel for the older dogs, not that they have bad teeth, not at all, but because they are older, tartar and plaque will build up on their teeth more easily, and I often need to scale their teeth with a scraper. Now I like to try if using this gel, I might not need to scale teeth anymore, or I hope less.

Let's see how things go I will keep you updated

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 …

Mijn vriend Rik

I'm so sorry for not posting for a while but sometimes there are so many other things to do, and I need to go to work to get my money so it's been a while.
But now I want to share again a very very nice book I got. I had it as a present from one of my best friends, and mentors in the collie breed.

This book is about a Rotweiller and it's called  Mijn vriend Rik, by Jan van Rheenen.
At first I tought why I wanna read a book about a Rotweiller, but I have a very cool colliebook by the same writer, and it wasn't the largest book with the most pages, so I started reading it.

You wouldn't believe how quick I finished this book, the story is so great told, this man can really write a book you get hooked on (if you like dogbooks) when I finished it, wat was within 2 days I found it like I read some Terhune story but then with another breed and another language.

The books first publishing date was in 1954, and that makes the book very sweet in reading, no fowl languages, a…

Rough collies of Distinction

This book brings so many nice memories. It is Rough collies of Distinction by Pat Hutchinson, Iris Combe and Dareen Bridge.

I bought it on my very first trip to crufts in the beginning of the 2000's, not sure when I went there for the first time.
The book is a hardcover one, with a lovely dust jacket. De collie on the cover is Freelander Phrosty moon over Corydon, I hope I spelled his name right, a really lovely collie, and I had the honour to see this marvelous dog in real at crufts. His colour was so striking and his bone, wow. I could go on about Crufts and that dog, but I'm talking here about the book.

As I said a hardcover with dust jacket, the size is nice, it is a coffeetable book but not very large, so you can sit with it on the sofa and have it nice on your lap.

Every 2 pages containes 1 dog, a little story on that particular dog and his picture or his drawing, because some of the early dogs never got on a real picture. Pedigrees and owners, wins and other nice things…
