…to be continued….
In the previous post you saw Iorga from 1973..now, here is Trident at a field trial, in 1983. 10 years later..NatK and Trident are very similar in morphology and type.https://pawpeds.com/db/?a=p&id=784696&g=4&p=bar&date=iso&o=ajgrep. Selection was on type not on pedigree…
More obvious is that the is no poodle in Trident. There is in NatK, but I selected away from the Poodle type. Otherwise, I would have a Barbet Moderne and I have not worked for the breed to have a 65cms/35k type of re-incarnated Poodle, de Buffon.
All in all, the past cannot just be erased, ignored and ridiculed..and some can do their best to thrash dogs and people but facts are facts.
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….
