Rare breeds

Preservation breeding. What else.

Starting left: Compay II de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre, behind him Vennie ( Outdoors Abergavennie) her son Lautrec de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre then Booly Wooly de la serve de la Chapelle d’Alexandre, Ermengarda ( Coccolina), Isabeau (Iabada) von der Leibrücke, Floirac( Froguette) and Lautrec de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre…

I am always happy to see my pups leave, because they are ready to start their new life. I must admit that I get very emotional when they have grown into what I had planned for them and I see them again. I can just admire them.
They are lovely, excellent character, happy, healthy and a continuation of what I have under my roof. What more can I ask for? Vennie sees her son, and what looked like her identifying him, coming to show me her happiness..It was amazing. What a nice afternoon!

…and still in the “C” litter 2007

Barbet Coccolina Birthday… 13 years young and going strong!

After taking the time to finally sit down and tabulate Coccolina’s descendance, I have come up with the unbelievable figure of 1100 as she turns out to probably be the Barbet that is present in, more than 1/2 of all Barbet pedigrees since her first litter in 2007, if that number is 2000 and still  an awesome 1/3 if the total is 3000. In the Barbet world, there are no real statistics and nothing official. What I have tabulated IS OFFICIAL, and taken from databases.

I will be able to do a more precise breakdown in the future as to which kennels her descendants have contributed to and believe you me..the list is long!

She is in fine health and enjoying life. Happy birthday my lovely girl and many more!!
