BARBET

History..and facts: Barbet MODERNE.

When you want to buy a Barbet, you definitely need to do research on what you “think” you will get…and the Barbet world is full of surprises.

I put this video together ( who else would?) because it’s important that when you are acquiring a companion for 12/15 years, you know what you are getting into….

Many say as little as possible and ride the wave of the “rare”and “help the breed survive”….

 

A fifth generation litter in the Netherlands

By that, I also mean all the dogs concerned are living under the same roof. That is not an easy feat to accomplish. You definitely know the dogs and their personality.

This is my friend Walda in the Netherlands.

This is where Isabeau ( Iabada) von der Leibrücke comes from. You look at the pups and you see how homogenous looking the all are. That is a sign!

A litter is planned..in the second semester 2019

The 2017 litter which was a fifth generation litter was a very very nice one. The pups have grown nicely..I need to do it again. Below you can see Grand-pa Compay II, his Grandson Nat-King and Nat-King’s father French Lover (on the right).Iabada will do her best! All my dogs are with me and we wish them well!

The irony of it all..

Age 2

GuyGuy who is a real dream dog and a charmer..was branded as it goes when he was young. All unfounded… Well, here we are at almost 13 after being so ill 2 years ago and recovered..each day is a blessing. He sleeps more and more, but eats rather well and has his daily walk which tires him a lot.

Smiling!

The only medication he has is one to make the air circulate in his brain and regularly milk thistle. He is a happy dog and a fighter and still top dog in the household.He is smiling at the camera..as he does! We managed to give him a bath and I think he is happy about it.Life goes on.
