I enjoy stepping back and looking in…to assess…! I breed only for type and I am happy with how they developed, their looks and their character.
Litter of 10, of which 2 champions (Canada and France); 2 guide dogs for the blind and all lovely healthy loving companions. 3 of them produced 65 pups (one =>31 with the same male).

This is mom, Coccolina, now 11 and dad almost 10 …both my honeys and nothing will separate them, or me from them for they are my beloved Barbets and my reason for being in the Barbet world ( with Thelma). Pictures taken in January 2016.
Thank you Ula and Chris Pepper for keeping me in the loop.
