A few days ago was the 9th birthday of my second litter and the first with Ermengarda/Coccolina , who had come to me from Italy, with Ungaro.
Now looking back, I must say it was a litter that changed the course of the breed as we soon found out when they started reproducing. There were mostly only black dogs or some brown, but nothing else.
From this litter and the fabulous people who contributed to its success, Coccolina achieved a feat not another Barbet has ever reached. The SCC “elite B” level.
Below are the names of the pups and to this day, only one has disappeared, meaning I lost track of the owners.
Compay II became French show Champion. He has his TAN. 3/6 SCC selection grid. Participated in a movie ( Nicolas Le Floch)and in an interview on Les Z’animaux de la 8 ( TV program).

Cooldady: My first guide dog for the Blind in Lyon, to be followed by several more

A wonderful litter who reproduced quite a lot, in several countries and their descendants have had litters, and on it goes!
Happy Birthday to all of you, may you stay happy and healthy for a long time!
