Cooper de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre has passed on. He was ill for only a few days and the vet could not help him as he may have had a tumor.
Picture was taken after he came back from the vet last weekend.
He is the first of that litter to have gone. He fathered one litter of pups in Sweden where he lived. He was just over 10.He will be sorely missed by his owners. It’s a sad page to turn..
It now appears that after years and years …and years of nothing, we now have the real nothing. The club is dead, long live the club.
I will not waste precious time on the issue that I have been talking about for a long time. Well, it came to a head and blew up in the president’s face which serves his nastiness right. JCHermans wants his club back, so he fought tooth and nail but cannot survive it on his own.
Now there will be a petit combat de coqs with the petits derniers deciding to go for it..wait and see.I have rarely seen a nastiest bunch of people around such a nice breed and I think it serves them right.
What no one ever got through their head is that to build the future you must learn from the past, even great French cooks do it…we are in France..
Speaking of cusine..and one of my favorites: Black Forest cake, you can get the best, the creative:
…and what is of mass production, and many are happy with it.
Enjoy your Barbet Moderne future, Long live the Vieux Barbet..de France.
Today is another big day as there have been many over the years since the creation of a club for the Barbet et al.. there are yet again elections to vote for who will save the barbet Moderne from extinction...keeping in mind that the barbet Moderne (swiss kraüsli) was created in the 1980's by JEAN-claude HERMANS, to equal the work of Messieurs Korthals and Boulet..and destroy what was left of the VIEUX BARBET ( standard written in 1886 for a Barbet d'arrêt, not a converted standard poodletype.
The Vieux Barbet will not survive another dictator because after 35 years of trying to keep its head above water, I think the situation is hopeless (has been) and the club is not the only one to blame.That's life.The history of the breed to date will be written and all those who fought to destroy each other and the breed will have their place in the long list of socutensonicehowIam...They are all in Lyon today, to vote..for another ignoramus.
Mrs Hélène Pêtre,Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco who always tried and believed something positive would happen for the breed.
Mr Rainier T. Georgii, who supported Mrs Pêtre and who also believed..The old Poppenspäler’s died with him.The new one has nothing to do with his work. Nothing.
Here’s looking at you.
In the previous post you saw Iorga from 1973..now, here is Trident at a field trial, in 1983. 10 years later..NatK and Trident are very similar in morphology and type.https://pawpeds.com/db/?a=p&id=784696&g=4&p=bar&date=iso&o=ajgrep. Selection was on type not on pedigree…
More obvious is that the is no poodle in Trident. There is in NatK, but I selected away from the Poodle type. Otherwise, I would have a Barbet Moderne and I have not worked for the breed to have a 65cms/35k type of re-incarnated Poodle, de Buffon.
All in all, the past cannot just be erased, ignored and ridiculed..and some can do their best to thrash dogs and people but facts are facts.
On the left is a Griffon Barbet and on the right is a Barbet Moderne ( Poodle type).
The standard was not ever written for a Poodle…it has been modified several times to become a poodletype…The Poodle exists already. It was written for a GUNDOG called Barbet d’arrêt.
When you read here and there that the Vieux Barbet/Barbet Authentique and Barbet MODERNE are the same dog.. Then, you know that the person saying it is as blind as a bat. He or she has not a clue what he or she is talking about.
In English AND in French…about a mega problem in the French dog world.I confirm it’s the same situation but worse for the Barbet..but after all, who am I to say?!
No names, but…
