Mooi Mooier Mooist

Here is my first bookreview for 2016, and it is about a Dutch book called "Mooi, Mooier, Mooist"

It is about breedstandards and the exaggeration of the breeds. The book is pretty old, it's of 1988, and when I was reading it, I was shocked.

There has been almost 30 years now since this book was written, and more and more the purebred dogs are being under fire. On tv they all speak of the breedstandards not being ok for healh. So I was amazed how this book fits in today.

It is a real eyeopener we should all look closely to our dogs before we breed. Health must come on a priority while breeding, and I don't know all breedspecifick things, but I can see there are breeds that are way too overtyped, and with those short muzzles and strange faces can never breath normally.

This book covers almost every part of the dog, like the nose the ears, the eyes, coat, bones, you name it. Every part has also specific breeds that are covered for that particular problem, and it makes you aware of the sometimes weird breedstandard, and what is a way more humane way to change the breed into something still very typey but way more healthy.

I got this book again from my best friend and mentor.
But I googled it, and it is still available.

This is absolutely not wasted money if you can find it. It is written by Snijders-Verheijen, and the ISBN nr is 9012054370.
The book itself is not a very thick one, it has only 159 pages but all those pages all well worth it.

Maybe sometimes it is not funny to read things like this but we all need to go try breed for happy healthy dogs.

Mooi, Mooier, Mooist

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!!!
