Purebred dog day

This morning on the internet I found out it is purebred dog day. I'm a breeder, not a big one, but I  am a breeder of purebred rough collies.
I do have nothing against rescue dogs, I think they deserve a loving home, and I bet there are many extreme sweet dogs that need a loving home.
But I can't help it, I love a beautifull breed, with it's history, the breedstandard and all.

As a breeder I had many many coarses on breedingtopics, about Genetics, Breeding and what to expect, Conformation, etc.
I read as many as I can about my breed, I go to conformation shows, I talk with breeders who have a long knowledge in the breed, and I talk to several vets, about health topics.

I hear many times bad things  about purebred dogs, but I know for sure that if a breeder is responsible for his breeding and takes his time in studying the pedigree, making health checks and so on, a pure bred dog is one of the most beautifull things on earth. We are as a breeder not allowed to breed with genetic health problems and we test for it, but if you just mix two dogs, without knowing the history of both family's of dogs, I don't think that will benefit to healthier dogs in general.

Wel that's about it, for purebred dog day, I love my pedigree dogs!! But if you own a rescue or what else, just go on and love him, because every dog is something special.

My Scarlett, fit for function, happy, healty and 100% rough collie

  2. Oh darn I missed Pure Bred dog day! I participated last year, somehow I didn't see ANYTHING online about it this year. I am tired of people who hate those of us who have purebred dogs. All animals should be loved, whether they are purebred or rescue, they ALL deserve love!!! I LOVE my purebred dog! xoxo DakotasDen

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…
