Ch- Compay II ( Segundo), like the singer, is celebrating 13 years of a nice healthy fulfilled life surrounded by his mom, Coccolina ( 15 1/2) his progeny and our 5th generation. What more can you ask for? Rejoice and dance.
Took Froggy doggy to work with me, because I think they enjoy individual attention and since I had a short afternoon..off we went. Stopped at my favorite bakery on the way and got myself a tarte à la crème…that I forgot
in the car. When I came back..Do you think he ate it or not?.. he did not. My Froggy Doggy..
These 2 beauties are descendants of my French Lover de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre..and Giorgia della Corte dei Berberi in Italy. A very close cooperation since 2005. It takes time but it pays off. Vive le Vieux Barbet...in remembrance of The work of Mrs Hélène Pêtre and Mr Rainier T Georgii.
There are approximately 180 Barbet breeders in the world. 4/5 are Vieux Barbet breeders. It’s not a money making endeavour..Please do not think you will find one so easily.
Barbet Moderne breeders are a dime a dozen and their production is to sell dogs.
My telephone was not far and I was able to capture a memorable shot. My wish that will not come true was mating GuyGuy with Iabada…We tried and it did not work. So be it. They really like each other..I can see it all the time. He has wonderful genes.
GuyGuy’s last brother went to Barbet heaven yesterday. He is now the last one I am blessed with. He is my 2nd French Champion. He has done a lot for the breed and produced also several champions. He has a divine nose and can flare a duck a hundred meters away!
