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 …

World animal day

Today is world animal day!! I Always tought that this was a day that was made up to get some more sales for animals treats.
But I came across a newsfeed, and it said it was the dying- or name day (that was not really clear)  of the holy Saint Fransicus van Assisi. As it goes in the story, he died on the evening of october 3th, but in the time he was living the date didn't change at 00:00 o'clock, but the day changed at the moment it became dark outside, that made his dying day october 4th. Well that was someting I didn't know.

Saint Franciscus was being well know for many things, but i'm not really a religious person so I can't tell much of that. I only know that he was  very fond of animals and he made sure they were ok.
There are also legends that he could talk to birds.

No wonder he was made the Holy Saint of the animals.

Now so many many years later, a lot op people celebrate world animal day, but I don't know how many people know of Saint Fransiscus.

At fi…

Lucky unpacking the Snuffelbox

First of all, again a long delay in blogging, but I hope to get back on track again

This summer we got a great Snuffelbox again!! And there was a little competition going on. I had to film the unpacking of the box. And not me unpacking, but one of the dogs. I choose Lucky, because when I ordered this box I had to fill in a name of the dog, so I just randomly picked his name.

So Lucky needed to unpack this box, and I had to film it.

There where again some great nice goodies in this box
There was a lollypop, made from beef
a bag of chickenstrips
a supercool toy of a tropical bird, (with sound)
a chewy starfish, for dentalcare
coconut shavings
pet icecream powder (that was hard to make)
very nice box of Renske wet food
and a second toy!!! a sqeeky car

We already look forward to the next box!!!
