Three day Quote Challenge (Day 2)



Ok, there we go again!!! As I was yesterday, today I'm also posting a quote! I was tagged by my friend at Dakota's Den  I really have to say sorry to my virtual furry friend Dakota, that she is not a she, but actually a he, so sorry Dakota for turning you into a girl..

So here is my quote of today, There's Something delicious about writing the first few words of a story... You can never quite tell where they will take you.
Beatrix Potter



I Love the works of Beatrix Potter, and she is somehow kind of a hero to me, and she had a collie, some will say it's a border collie, but it is a collie.

Now on with the Challenge, I have to tag 3 new people!!

  1. I LOVE THAT QUOTE! It's soooo true! I never knew that Beatrix Potter had a Collie! Thank you for sharing that. It is TOTALLY ok that you called Dakota a girl, EVERYONE thinks he is a girl...plus, the name Dakota can be for a boy or a girl. It's all good! Thank you for sharing that quote because I had never heard it before, also, I am going to go and check out Murphy Golden Girl, I don't know her! xoxo

    1. I'm a huge fan of Beatrix Potter, and strolling trough her paintings, I found some of a sable coloured collie, I would call in a rough collie, but some clame it is a border. But I don't really mind!

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…

Judging at dogshow-ringtraining

Last year, in December, yes I know a while back, I judged at the showtraining event of Dogshow-ringtraining Drouwenermond.

I was asked if I wanted to do judging of their last day of the training season, to make a nice ending of their trainingsyear.
Ofcoarse I'm not a real conformation Judge, but I have been intensively showing dogs since 2004, so I know how things are going in the showring.

So in december it was their end of the season, and my first ever judging apointment.
There where multiple groups of dogs and it really went just like a real dogshow, only I went over the dogs, not judging the dogs, but taking notice of their handler if they where doing the correct thing.
Showing me the bite of their dog, gaiting them and presenting them.

For every dog was made a judging report with points, so that was really curious for me too.
I was so focused on all aspects I didn't really know who was my nr 1 handler.

So when they calculated points I was just as curious as all the partic…
