Since it is impoosible to get a straight answer out of many in France, you try to compare what is bigger or smaller than a bread box to figure things out by yourself. Not easy, but “normal” with the Barbet world in France. Everything is generally a hassel, big or small, but a hassel. While I was on my way to visit a friend in Switzerland a couple of days ago, I was listening to the radio broadcast in French (Swiss Romande). The tone was noticeably different than the French negativist tone. News were good, business was flourishing, profits were up….I was seeing so many nice, new cars driving past me, it was like being at a car show. Well, anyway.So much for that.
There appears to be a major major bad overall French attitude towards everything making it difficult to accomplish anything. We in France all know that. Business is bad, attitudes are for sh– and help is not anything to consider asking for.From anyone.
You send someone an email to ask a simple question.Very often they ignore you and don’t answer and when they do, you get an earfull of what you want but not an answer to a simple question.
We all know that the club ( with the assistance of the breeders, haha) is supposed to lower the sizes in the standard of the Barbet. Then you look at the 8th wonder of the world, ask for a size and they turn their nose up and refuse to answer. It’s quite obvious that a bread box is a bread box. Not to everyone…
We still have some lying about dog sizes..we know who they are and they have support in holding them up high-er, and higher.
I can hardly wait for the club specilaty show. I want to see if a 2/3 cms matted coat is included in the size of a dog…I asked, but got no answer.
This is me, and Ela who is not standing properly because if she were she may have been even 53, haha….I am 1.72 and not shrinking yet!
