And the best for last….Flintstone von der Leibrücke’s show.

Flintshow2013 Flintstone (Charly de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre x Ashley von der Leibrücke) is a carbon copy of Cousteau von der Leibrücke(Charly de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre x Quaciendas Aubey). they are both white and black and represent very much so the look of a Barbet…or Vieux Barbet: coat, color and size.

I made the document big so you could read it easily! Bravo Flintstone…

Many have just misunderstood the meaning of “genetic diversity”. It for some, means using the same breeder and just changing the names of the dogs and re-using them as often as possible so they continue to show up in all pedigrees. This is where French is not the lingua franca in the dog world. It was said at the Symposium…to use all the dogs alive and well, not all the dogs of one breeder. Result is not the same, eh?
You would think that our 5-star super oldest ukase breeders in the breed still breeding would show the way with their knowledge, which is not really the case.

Ready for the dog show ring…argh.

From being completely matted, it took me 2 hours to brush her all out into this poofball.It is a bit oily and the comb had no problem.
Tomorrow, we plan on hitting the water, which would not have been possible with her coat in the state it was in until today.I look forward to seeing how it turns out dry.

This is the new look for winning in the showring. The advantage is that it hides all flaws a dog could have!…Don’t particularly care for it as it is not representative of what the breed should look like.Interesting to try, though.
