Colors

I had a choice, as we always do.

Stay home and go the the Game Fair (haha, for the Mondiale of the Barbet where 8 dogs showed up and shined) or…

vegas home

…easy choice. The last time there was a big dog event for the Barbet, it was in 2012, the symposium (haha). People came from as far as Sweden and Poland expecting to learn/hear something. Thery were totally ignored and spent the day waiting for something to happen. It never did. Luckily; many of us were happy to see each other and we spent a nice time together…I had approximately 20 dogs from my line on site. Not all are in the picture since some satyed in other hotels. After being continually insulted by breed “authorities” it was quite obvious no one would show up at Game Fair 2016…no one of any importance for the breed, that is. Most thought it was a joke. A sad one……Barbet_symposium2012

This lovely litter represents a 5th generation for Ermengarda/Coccolina and it is wonderful to see how generations continue a line. Haley/Maj von der Lebrücke is in the Netherlands at Kennel von der Leibrücke. All are doing well !

 

Preserving the breed for its future…

Kadiz (Diesel) and Marquis de Lafayette Kiefer ( Laffy) von der Leibrücke…descendants of Coccolina, again and again, through CH-Compay II de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre and Charly, his brother. Stunning !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What a way to make a statement in the USA…where “stunning” is  a most important feature! How proud I am of our work together? Very!

Rose is Vennie’s sister. You see her, her pups and Cousteau von der Leibrücke, son of Charly de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre. Cute.

Funny how the line produced the first white and black pups with Babaloo, then Cousteau and there are none in France and no sand either! On the other hand with so few births, makes chances smaller.

Morning beauties!
