As surrogate breeder to the Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco litters, I am very sad to announce that Brenn di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco is now in Barbet heaven.
He was diagnosed with spleen cancer at 8.5 years of age. Much too young to his owners who adored him as we do our beloved ones. Brenn, known as Bounty had a long Barbet “history” and alas never reproduced because of this and that and now, well.
He was not curly, and none of us cared because he had the extraordinary Barbet with a capital B character, he reminded us of his father Vincacao and had his grandmother’s eyes ( Sangria) and when you have such an exceptioanl dog, it’s hard. A loving thought for Borée, Bali, Bacchus, Bibiche, Beauté whom he will be joining ( killed by a boar) and I am certainly glad their genes are out there.
I saw him in September and he was as beautiful as he ever was, even though then he was already ill. We did not know it…
Brenn: 26/05/2006- 28/11/2014.
