Barbets en Bresse

Cherchez l’errrrrrreur..

http://www.ukaustralianlabradoodleclub.co.uk/About-the-Breed.html

With more and more designer breeds around and people wanting “one”, for xyz reasons, it is becoming very difficult for the Vieux Barbet to survive, since  many newer breeders are not particularly interested in the breed’s history and would much rather “start from here on”. However they do love to mention it is a very old French breed…but skip over the important information…and selection to type.

Now EVEN the Australian Labradoodle people are showing lineage….

Best from Switzerland: Ela Samba

Could not resist sharing this beautiful picture of Ela Samba de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre, now almost 8 years old..She has had a wonderful career and done very well for our breed’s survival.

Fasila Chanter…and 7 years later: Nancy Sinatra. Vieux Barbets par excellence!

Fasila Chanter, aka TiliTili at age 7. A very very beautiful girl, and of very homogenous type with her sister, Fanny, below and her niece, right.

Fanny Forigoler

Fasila Chanter.

Fasila and Fanny’s parents are Booly Wooly        ( GuyGuy) de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre and Ermengarda                       ( Coccolina).

Compay’s last litter before he came home.

Compay is now home after being away for 3.5 years ( working for the breed).

His last litter was born a few days ago, and you can see the white markings he is famous for, but in the sand color. Love it!

Compay II, a couple of weeks old in 2007.

Never seen before in Barbet world: 5 generations under one roof

5 generations under one roof!

A feat no one, not even a real  breeder, in the Barbet world has ever accomplished.

To this day: to show a line and its evolution  over 5 generations . I did it. A lot of sacrifices..But I am so happy. 13 years to 5 months. All homogeneous and healthy!

I have worked very very hard over the last 15 years to get to where I wanted to be.

                   A particular type of Barbet, the historical Griffon type, as in Rose, 1887.

As the Vieux Barbet should be, as portrayed below. These are all historical references. Le Barbet n’est pas un Caniche.

I did my my way…My proudest achievement!

…back to the beginning, my beginning and the real Barbet, a Vieux Barbet that does not look like a Poodle or a crossbreed fashion designer dog. I can sit down and admire this pedigree…and thank everyone who helped achieve this major feat in the Barbet world.

When there is a will, there is a way!

I am very proud and honored to introduce lovely Arlan Rún d’Aubépine. He is the son of Ulysse di Barbocheos Reiau de Prouvenco and Ela Samba de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre. He was born  on July 5th 2017.

Birthday: Vennie and Froggy 2015 litter!

7 out of 11 is not bad..2 at guide school for the blind (one reformed)..One in Alsace and another in Paris.Maybe we will have news for next year! These are all doing well…Happy birthday and many many more!
