Time out at mom’s, dad’s and Grand-ma’s!

Barbet_family3
Désirée de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre stops in every year to see her mom ( Coccolina), dad (BoolyWooly)and Grand-mama (Thelma).

They all live together, so it’s always a nice treat.(for all of us)

It’s nice for the Barbet family to be together and play since my role has never been to breed and “just” sell dogs, but to keep you all up on all my dogs, even if they don’t go to dogshows and become superchampions. They arte champions of someone’s heart.

Club Specialty stats are up: 17 Barbets next week!

TOTAL : 17

Whilst I’d much rather play with my dogs at home in the country, attending shows is a necessary part of the game.

Barbet girls out for a run

It is a bit hot these days and it’s not easy when you want to take them for a walk or run. Their needs don’t nercessarily decrease when it’s hot. So, a nice brisk run and walk is good for everyone. It keeps you fit and off the computer!

Just to show off: Froguette

We are all delighted with the Canadian exploits of our “working  titles” Barbets ( Bibiche and Guinness) and since we cannot commit to that heavy of a training……Froguette has decided to do her own ” double retrieving in water”.Barbet_doubleretrieve

Another great day for the Barbet

Gatsby de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre successfully completed his 2 year training program at the Guide School for the Blind in Lyon, yesterday. He will now be fulltime 24/7 with his new mistress and helping her lead a “as normal as possible” life.

Gatsby is the son of Coccolina and Chouffe, from the Netherlands. He is Coccolina’s 3 son to have become a guide dog now. 2 work in Lyon and one in Annecy, France.

They must demonstrate a steady character, intelligence and willingness to work. This trait has been transmitted now to progeny around the world of Coccolina and I am very proud of all of their achievements.

Coccolina is a gem of a Barbet and her well over 200 grand-children and great grandchildren, all healthy and very representative of the breed and the type of Barbet I promote along with others who believe in saving the old strain of our rare breed.
