Sweet dogstory

Just a few days ago I finished this sweet little dogbook called Girl by Gerald Green.
I do have this book in my own language where it is titles "De oude man en de hond".

This book was standing in my bookcase for a very long time, but because of study I didn't have the time to read a ordinary book. So now I have all the time to read and this was one of the first ones I choose from my huge collection.

The story is pretty simple, an old man called Riddle has his dog Girl and he claimes that she knows more then 4000 words, he goes around with his dogs on carnivals and he gets noticed to be in a tv program.
I won't spoil the story you must read it for yourselve.

The book is only 70 pages thick and has a hardcover with a dustjacket. Mine is not in a superb condition, but that is because it is very old ( I think publishing is in 1977)
ISBN 13: 9780385116503

It still in available online and it is not an expensive book.
I love dogstories and I bet this will be a great childerensbook also

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!!!

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 wa…
