Lucky 13, birthday boys…and girls!

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.

Happy birthday wishes to his sisters Che and Cori, whom I see as often and possible. ChiChi and Colleen in Scandinavia. Caya in Le Havre France.

And a special thought to Cooper and Charly who are up there looking at us…

..and Cooldady who is now a retired Guide dog from the Lyon school.

The Vieux Griffon Barbet is threatened with extinction and not to be confused with a Barbet Moderne.

Did he or didn’t he?

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..

Ask me how proud I am?!

1974..a Vieux Barbet par excellence.

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.

 

 

 

Survival of the fittest

Not many Barbets manage to the ripe old ages of 13.5 months of age for GuyGuy and 14.9 for Coccolina. They both are strong willed and seem to be enjoying life.

What else can you ask for? I am blessed with their company each day that God gives us together.

Last, but not least..GuyGuy!

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!
