Lad a dog 100 year

This month januari 2016 makes the 100th anniversery of the story of  Lad. Exactly 100 years ago Albert Payson Terhune's story His Mate is printed in Red Book Magazine.
Before those dogyarns he wrote many mysteries and other tales, but when His Mate was published with Lad the great collie with the absurdly tiny forepaws, the fame of Albert Payson Terhune began to rise.
Who would have know that a tale about a dog could make someone famous, but for many Americans it was a reason to want a collie, and there are a huge amount of breeders and owners of collies that love the book Lad a dog, and they will state it was their start in the breed.

The book Lad a dog came later, that was not published earlier then in 1919, the story's of Lad first only where printed as serials in magazines, and later they where being bundled up in a book.

Lad a dog is still in print today, so that is very nice. Als because the stories are so old, many books of Terhune are online because they are public domain now.

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!!!
