Happy Birthday 2008 Barbets!

A batch of dog cookies to celebrate the 9th birthday of Coccolina x GuyGuy’s litter!

 How time flies…people come and go and you wonder how the dogs are when some don’t feel it necessary to give news.

This is/was a special litter, born at a naisseuse who had so ever kindly, back then,   offered to take care of them so Booly Wooly could do a hunting trial in the south of France…Now, looking back..I realize that back then I still had hopes. I have none any more of the breed ever becoming what it was a hundred years ago or of any of the “breeders” ever working together.

This is a picture of Tufi who lives in Switzerland..who visits us every year!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Best from Switzerland: Ela Samba

Could not resist sharing this beautiful picture of Ela Samba de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre, now almost 8 years old..She has had a wonderful career and done very well for our breed’s survival.

Education and genes?

You would wonder if Vennie knows she is her grandmother...she is the one who plays the most with her and takes very good care of her on walks and in her water escapades. If you see a bit of a harness there, it is unintentional. A dog should NEVER EVER go to water with a harness. it's dangerous.    

Coccolina’s 5th…

Steady breeding and objectives make it possible. Breeding for type, character and natural ability*( and health, of course, which goes without saying)…Lovely little Velvet is not Beethoven’s, but lovely Coccolina’s 5th generation…and I am not even a breeder!barbet_velvet
