GuyGuy is taking his medicine for his gallstone, eating sometimes more sometimes less and I spend the time to make sure he does. We are now testing some homeopathy that could help him when he moans and is in pain. He IS a real trooper and so sweet. Every day, I am blessed to have him.
My 2 cents’: We have nothing but super experts in all these breed clubs who are always ready and willing to guide you with their prophecy…but when all is said and done? I am not sure they even know what a Barbet is. But they will show you how to..
When an allmighty self acclaimed “expert” dictates what can happen or not in the barbet world, it’s time to say “stop“. A bimbo does not decide about a breed and what it looks like, nor does her sidekick.
…and enjoy my graal. I have worked very hard to reach this point, and seeing that the breed club no longer exists( they accomplished their mission, running the breed into the ground…It’s probably the best time to take a break, wait and see…. At some point people may or may not come together and deal with factual information concerning the Vieux Barbet, and not rely on internet heresay, rumours and fantasy. I find it more important to watch my dogs interact; enjoy them as they enjoy each other and will think about more puppies, later! I will take the time to share more pictures and deal with the factual history of the breed…as before.In the meantime enjoy visiting other French sites and learning about their contribution to the breed. A breed severely threatened with extinction. I hope that people will develop the critical thinking skills and stop being mouthfed the theories and fantasies they are drinking up like nectar.
You can lead a Barbet to water, but you can’t make him swim!
