Dog Breeding A Guide To Mating And Whelping

It has been a while since I did actually read a book or did a review on a book. My working and showing scheduele very busy, and I'm studying too, so reading a book, or writing about it is hard.
But this book is a great one for my study.
 Dog Breeding, a guide to Matin and Whelping by Kay White.

It is a bit of an old book, as so many of the books I read, but a breeding is still do be done with a dog and a bitch, and puppies still have the same theorie of coming out so I find this a nice one.

Ofcourse my version is the Dutch translation, but that doesn't matter.
It is written in a very understandable language, somethimes those books are very technical and after a few pages you quit reading because it is too many terms.
But this one is a nice cross between technical stuff and still informational, even for a person who never bred a litter before.
It surely is very helpfull by my study, as I have to learn about hormones who are involved in the whole proces of breeding.

The pictures in this book are exept of a few ones all in black and white. For me that is ok, I don't like coloured pictures of a puppy that is being born, but I can imagine that if you really like those things, that maybe a new print of this book should be nice, because of some coloured prints. I like it this way.

In my country is the book de Geboorte van de Hond by mr Naaktgeboren a must for the study of Canine knowledge but I think this one will do the trick also for a big part, this is an easier written book, and less tabels and graficks.

Things about food are chanching all the time so I bet, those insights are a bit old fashioned now, but I find this book a very warm welcome in the world of breeding.

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!!!
all for paws dental che…
