A very interesting article.
I think it’s a shame not everyone has agreed with what this man has written about breeds in general. It would then mean that the guilty parties who are working on changing the face of the breed, as far as we are concerned, are at least aware of the damage they are doing to the Barbet or Vieux Barbet. This is applicable to most countries since many clubs are extremely weak and not well enough (let’s say not at all) informed and are manipulated on to handle a breed, especially a rare one meaning the Vieux Barbet and are just too keen on doing what they are told to (it’s easier), for lack of competences and do “without thinking”.
We have created a generation of brainless people, useful idiots, but you know that.
When a person can openly criticize an international judge for being incompetent because of being from a country that does not have a particular type of Barbets, or any for that amtter, on a public blog, then we have gone to the next step of public slander, a specialty of this particular group of people.
The Barbet Moderne is a rare breed for lack of numbers, only. It’s not a breed threatened with extinction since it was created in 1980. Those people are using information that is misleading and false to advertize and sell dogs.
