Start to run

Running I had so many false starts in running, everytime I think yes, and after a few days I get injuries on my shins. So no running for me.............
But I started all over again. What is more fun to do then to run with your dog!!!
This time I really wanted to be prepared and I really wanted to go and succeed.

First of all I downloaded a nice app called "hardlopen met Evy" to do the schema of 5km in 10 weeks you only need to pay 3,99 euro, so ok, did that.

And then start moving.

With all those attempts of running I did have all the gear for my dogs.
Belt, Harnesses you name it, this running business was no problem for my doggies.

Before I start I make sure they did potty, so I walked them normally, this walking is also important because it is a warming up also for me and the dogs.
Just to make sure I still take poopbags with me.

The first run was 20 minutes easy peasy for the furkids but for me wow, running 1 minute and then walking 1 minute, running 2 minutes and then walking 2 minutes and so on.
20 minutes of exercise and 2,3 km

Now I'm in week 4 and I am able to run 29 minutes and 3,73 km's.
It is a big difference I run with my girls or I take Lucky with me. He is a strong boy and runs a lot quicker, and even pulling a little like in canicrossing.

Next week the schema is running for 30 minutes, so I keep you updated.

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 …

Dental care update!!

A while ago, I bought some new dental care gel and foam and I promissed to make an update on it.
I have been using the teethgel and foam in the first period for nearly every day, the youngsters got their foam, and the adults the gel.
I must say it worked, really, teeth where clean and there was not new tartar and stuff building on their teeth, so that was positive.
But, there is a but, I'm sorry, my dogs stomachs did not react great on the cleangel. That was a big shame because I really loved it that I didn't have to brush so regularly their teeth. And I do know that, that is a lazy thing, but when teeth are white and shiny and I don't have to brush that much I get happy! So now I use it once a week, and it works ok, but when I finish the bottles I don't think I will buy it again, not because of the product but purely because of my dogs getting not totally well.
And I don't like it when my doggies get diarrhea after their teeth being done.

If your dogs have a bette…
