He’s a winner :Jump for joy and 2014!


Ch-Compay II de la serve de la Chapelle d’Alexandre jumping for joy for what 2014 will bring!

Compay is an adorable, friendly, pleasant, extremely anxious to please type of dog. He was one of the first Barbets, since Akvavit with the white on the legs and since many have been born that way… He has a nice open curled coat easy to manage, which is definitely a plus and also very characteristic of the line. He became a French movie star, did great at shows.

Top Barbet 2010 ( ProPlan award) French Champion

 6 CACIB, 7 CACS, several BOB…

 He’s been in 3 TV shows (1 about the breed), and

is featured in several books and encyclopedias.

He is father to 13, grandfather to 66, great-grandfather to 9 with more on the way in Switzerland. Many of these pups have that very typical big head that is  a very  recognizable trait for the line and of course, the white paws that go back to at least 1981 with lovely Soushong, pictured below.


     He and his siblings have also produced white and black and sand in colors.

                                   Happy New year Compay, and many more!
