AFP, All for paws toy

In september last year I had a great toy in the Snuffelbox. It was a dental chewing toy, by the brand AFP, All for paws, a dental wish bone.

Chewing on a toy is for a dog actually fun to do, it is also great for relieving stress, and when they get bored it is also very nice to chew on something, just for fun. We don't think of it as fun, but a dog who is left alone and who doesn't get enough fysical and mental stimulation, can go chew on stuff, and ofcourse it will always be on something that you don't like.

Also with teething you pup wil chew on all sorts of things to releive him from the pain.

This toy the dental wish bone is a great one for it.

My dogs are really heavy chewers, when I buy them a toy I will always make sure it is the most sturdy toy of them all, and even then, I had them eat some toys who where according to the package where indestructible.

So when I saw this toy I was actually waiting for my dogs to destroy it within 5 minutes, but I was wrong.

It says it is a dental toy, and it really was, it has chicken flavour, I cannot really check if that is true, but I believe my dogs and they where pretty exited when I gave it to them.
When I give my dogs such a toy I make sure I have only 1 dog in the room at the same time because I don't want any fighting, so one by one I made them chew on it.

In between I just flushed it with hot water and I gave it to the next dog. Even after cleaning the toy, before giving it to the next, they stayed exited, so I believe the flavour stayed on the toy, and I did really do some good to the gum and teeth. At first their gums would bleed some but after a few days of giving them this toy, that started to go away.
I can't really say that you can stop cleaning teeth with a good ol' toothbrush, but I sure made the work easier.

On this picture you see the toy after it was chewed on for a few months, by 7 dogs, almost 3 times a week, and they where really killing this toy.
I was very happy with it, and I will defenitly go buy this toy again, it works and the dogs like it, and it lasts for a long time.
So if you only have 1 or 2 dogs, you and your dogs will have loads of fun with it, and it will help keep their teeth clean.

Star chewing the dental toy, and upper right a chewed on toy after a few months!!!

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…
