Three Day Quote Challenge ( Day 1)

Oh my gosh, I just discovered the fact I can get followers on my blog, and I just recently started to follow people myselve, and now I'm already been tagged in a challenge!!!
I'm pretty exited that my friend of Dakota's Den challenged me.

She has a supercute blog, and I've been reading her post's since a couple of day's ( yes I'm sorry, I blog for over a year and now discover all sorts of thigs)
Dakota is a super sweet Sheltie and I like to read about her adventures.

Now on with this challenge thing,
I now have to post quotes for 3 days.

And my first quote must be Win Without Boasting, lose without excuse.
It is by my all time favorite author Albert Payson Terhune, it doens't really fit to me, because when I win at show with my dogs I like to boast!!! haha, but I know Terhune himself would do the same. But the lose without excuse, relates to me, everytime I do not get the award of Best of Breed or something else I know it is the Judge, and not the performance of my dogs, they give their best shot every single time, and I can be proud of them every time!!

My quote with my favourite author
Now I have to Challenge people myselve so I will tag people,
and hope they will participate.

There are three rules to this challenge, and they are:
1. Post for three consecutive days.
2. Choose and share one or three quotes each day.
3. Challenge three additional bloggers each day.

1) I Challenge All things Collie
2) And Collie of the Meadow
3) And last but not least Cow spot dog

I hope everyone I tagged wil particitpate, but otherwise I do think it is big fun to do this!!

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!!!
