Allow me a little cackle…

So, as the other one says..I have hunting dogs but don’t even have my hunting licence…..well, it is a crying shame because my dogs are awesome on land and in water..what about the others’? Can they do the same right off the cuff in their backyard set up with nettles and thick bramble?

Barbets en Bresse..what else.

A sad day, indeed.


The Uungarongaro x Coccolina mating was probably the most important mating in the Barbet world. It gave Coccolina access to the 5/6 SCC selection grid. That honor has never been reached by any Barbet. It brought colors to the breed that had not been seen for several decades…and he lived a healthy life til the end.
Of course he will be missed, by his owners, and those who are lucky enough to have him in their pedigree.
His contribution to the breed was ENORMOUS. He has many descendants.

If you have pictures of his progeny, we are putting a tribute together for him. I would greatly appreciate receiving photos you are willing to share for his owners.

Thank you in advance.

Second hand information…


…has it that 2 of  GuyGuy and Coccolina’s progeny have disappeared from where they both live. I have not any facts whatsoever. This took place in the south of France the day before yesterday.It’s all over  a social network. You kind of wonder how something like that can happen…it can..of course.barbet_fannyne2012barbet_dixie

It is very sad, and I would never forgive myself had it happened here. My dogs are so very important to me…as my honey bunnies. I am so overly careful with them.
