I had not realized there had not been any posts for so long.. I am still every day doing “Barbet” but not always here!

I have something extraordinary to share with you. This is a photo taken last weekend in Finland. This is what dreams are made of. I had hoped for a long time that a picture could be taken of 2 Vieux Griffon Barbets of 2 different breeders…Just to show you they did exist before they all started looking like BIIIIIIIIIG POODLES .. Working on keeping an old breed alive is not a money making venture, that is why you see so few. They are near extinction.
This is proof again, that the man on the moon did not just fall there and that a Barbet Modern has nothing to do with a Vieux Barbet/Authentic Barbet/ Vieux Griffon Barbet.

Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Valentine’s day is the perfect day for an announcement of importance. As many know, we are reaching the end for the old breed. After many years of working to reach my objective,I have decided to go to the next step.
I am looking for a female “outside” the box to continue the Vieux Barbet line. The ultimate objective is to use the stored “straws” of Ulysse di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco to help in the survival of the breed, the old breed.
She must be of proper type/morphology and temperament.
I’d rather stay away from brown.
I must be able to work with someone I can trust and there will be terms to a contract we will establish together. This will be to avoid any abuses or excesses.
Please contact me privately.
I enjoy showing adult dogs of the Vieux Barbet type. Deetha is a daughter of Ulysse di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco ( U- litter of pure bred Barbets) and Nancy Sinatra from my 2017 litter. A 5th generation litter which is very rare in the Barbet world… and will become rare-r. Sadly so.
The 2017 litter which was a fifth generation litter was a very very nice one. The pups have grown nicely..I need to do it again. Below you can see Grand-pa Compay II, his Grandson Nat-King and Nat-King’s father French Lover (on the right).Iabada will do her best! All my dogs are with me and we wish them well!

…but can you see it? Do any of the other “waterdogs” look like this one? Negative. Breed for health, of course, but not for mutts or Doodles! Otherwise send people to buy a Labradoodle or a Poodle. Continually breeding for 0% is not going to get anyone anywhere…
Here’s another example, below:
