Hunting/retrieving work

A Coccolina birthday: 15 today..

This box arrived from The Netherlands where she has a lot of descendants..Tasty chicken wings and dog bones she shared with her family! The watermelon liqueur.. was for me!

 

Coccolina, super Champion of hearts.. in the pedigree of over 2500 Barbets in the world. Nearly 3000 as she is on both sides. Mom to several Champions, International Champions and a long line of Vieux Barbets. Happy Birthday my dear, sweet lovely girl.

Thank you for  the wonderful gift, Amie, Edwin and Yvon..

My crazy GuyGuy..still hunting..

Their natural instinct prevails, regardless. He falls, I help him up and he knows I will. I helped his mother Thelma whelp him..why would I do anything else, but help him feel good until the end of his life? He’s my GuyGuy like all my dogs that I love and enjoy every day, in sickness and in health til death do us part?

(In the video, I am out of breath because I had to run after him..)

Deetha Déjà Vue and Nancy Sinatra in Finland

I enjoy showing adult dogs of the Vieux Barbet type. Deetha is a daughter of Ulysse di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco ( U- litter of pure bred Barbets) and Nancy Sinatra from my 2017 litter. A 5th generation litter which is very rare in the Barbet world… and will become rare-r. Sadly so.
