Are you looking to widen your Barbet horizons?

This site above has not  beren updated in 3 years? There have been over 3000 clicks since last week! Not happy with the nothingness you can find on the net around the Barbet and its rarity? Its history? What you are looking for may be a grand dose of Barbet truth? Fear’s coming….After re-doing the history of the Poodle as many who have, and hitting the wall…I started seeking more sources, “des sources plurieles” as one says. Mostly foreign, they are which severely lacked in a lot of the “internet” copy and paste world of ours. You may like to go back through this very thorough site which is regularly updated with news of the world:

The history of the breed is in due is a sneak preview, but don’t tell anyone. It’s a secret!



Honesty is not the best global Barbet policy, but at some point many will need to be more transparent.


In 2012, we did have access to the éminences grises of the SCC. Pr Denis has his arms folded in his back. This is when Dr Leroy is being told he would not be talking about the work he did for 6 months before…

Professor Bernard Denis has been around for many years and certainly is “aware” of what is happening to our breed and many others.

The last paragraph does mention the fact that people, meaning breeders ought to explain why there is so much “diversity” in a given litter…and if they want a precise type, they need to look for a breeding with higher in-breeding %…bottom line: don’t lie about what you think you know to potential buyers…they are paying a lot for what they think they are getting.

A pot de “l’amitié” has been set up for the Club show in December where everyone present can discuss the breed…Now, it may be the teacher in me, but going there to chit-chat about the coat or this and that when there are a lot of competent people around who were at some point, willing to help…are not there, seems another shot in the dark. Do you homework first and get the proper info. Why some cannot comprehend that there are varieties in a breed, is mindboggling. Then wonder no more why this and why that.

Yet another database has been set up, or revamped, or whatever you want to call it, but..this great innovation is soooooo old. Getting a symposium report out 4 years after the fact is yet another blunder to the breed.

Something to look into as a subject:

 the 1830 edition of Buffon/Daubenton, about the degeneration of animals:…

Using Barbet blood and selecting on a Poodle type, is not helping forward the breed…Need more subjects? Just ask, or whistle.

There is only one Barbet? …Tell me to my face!?*

The SCC says the breed was “reconstructed” by using poodles( I say “et al”)…why is it such a difficult concept for some to understand that there were LOF/SCC Barbet before the breed was “re-constructed”… Before it was RE-constructed, re- means was constructed and there were no Poodles…!!This is written in French for the French..who refuse to understand( they are not the only ones, sadly).

Then, on the other had when you can’t spell, how can you understand?!There may be A Barbet but there are 2 varieties…how difficult is that to comprehend? Mind_boggling what some do, when you think they ought to know better.


  • with proof …of course.

Sad epitath for anyone…but typical for the Barbet world.

fl_barbetI am still very much saddened that for a woman who did work for and even against… the breed, no one has been able to show a picture of her and just say nice words that one would say about a person who has died…but only refer to her “so-called” epi study from 2010 (which came after her claiming it was an allergy to chicken).Now, how can a bombshell half-desnuda breeder at shows, who claims her dogs descend from Napoleon’s poodles and refers to a Lagotto juvenile epilepsy study to ensure her “dogs” are clean of sorts and so able to talk about a woman she hardly knew and was not even respected by her, at the time…this is what goes on in this Barbet world where you claim superiority not by you acts, but by your slanderous comments against others ( and they are numerous).

We do not know really when she died, where she is buried and how we can even send her family any words of support..I’d say that is rather scandalous on behalf of a club, but then…what else is new from a breed club that has nothing else to do but attack people, and slander them.

Below is a reference to a study that even Mrs Loiseau did not work on;nor did she work with anyone of any consequence in the research or scientific domaine..her study was “homemade” like many of the pedigrees we have..Poor woman anyway, that some play up for their own profit. Shame on you. She did try to bring down people with her Quebecois friends and her Swiss one, but it still is not working. I do feel sorry for all of you.I will remember the happy times, and how often we laughed…at you.Loiso
