Precision work

…From the day I drove to the Périgord Vert to see him, to last weekend, there has certainly been a lot of water under the bridge on this particular story. We have now been able to add another chapter after a lot of work, support and friendship over the years.

Ursus di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco

He was sitting there doing nothing and not getting along with the Irish terriers he was with. I had heard about it, so I drove there and saw him and then we put a plan into place to get him and send him to a place where he could have a nice life. Good thing Anne is always ready to hop on a plane. The suite was not real history but part of it and we have gotten past that episode, finally to the lovely photo below.

Working on the survival of an old breed ( old, meaning 1884 when the standard was written) is no easy feat, but now we have more and more memories of making history ourselves for the future  of the breedand our old age and our friendships.

2 females ( Nelum Himalis Enigma x Ursus di Barbochos di Reiau de Prouvenco) are now in France. Enigma as you know, is daughter to Compay, another story we are still laughing about; and Granddaughter to Coccolina who is a real gem of a girl with so many descendants all over the world I would be hard pressed to say how many. I can, tho, be sure that if they are anything like her, they are real treasures. More photos coming up!
