In the fabulous video you will recognize alot of Barbet MODERNE “types”. Why are they so similar? Because the Barbet Moderne was created in the late 1980’s, by crossing Poodles and adding a bit of this and that. Wonder no more.
…Because not everyone is on a social network…
Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Valentine’s day is the perfect day for an announcement of importance. As many know, we are reaching the end for the old breed. After many years of working to reach my objective,I have decided to go to the next step.
I am looking for a female “outside” the box to continue the Vieux Barbet line. The ultimate objective is to use the stored “straws” of Ulysse di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco to help in the survival of the breed, the old breed.
She must be of proper type/morphology and temperament.
I’d rather stay away from brown.
I must be able to work with someone I can trust and there will be terms to a contract we will establish together. This will be to avoid any abuses or excesses.
Please contact me privately.
Their natural instinct prevails, regardless. He falls, I help him up and he knows I will. I helped his mother Thelma whelp him..why would I do anything else, but help him feel good until the end of his life? He’s my GuyGuy like all my dogs that I love and enjoy every day, in sickness and in health til death do us part?
(In the video, I am out of breath because I had to run after him..)
When you want to buy a Barbet, you definitely need to do research on what you “think” you will get…and the Barbet world is full of surprises.
I put this video together ( who else would?) because it’s important that when you are acquiring a companion for 12/15 years, you know what you are getting into….
Many say as little as possible and ride the wave of the “rare”and “help the breed survive”….
Lots of memories of this little girl..who just wanted to have fun. I selected her, picked her up and kept her for the 10 months required before she could go to the UK as breeding stock .Took her to shows, trained her to get her TAN water test and off to stardom, she went..She did her job well and even had a historic litter with Caya de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre..This is another sad day in the Barbet world. Wonderful Aretha Franklin bowed out on the same historic day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ifw8JhDBvs
These last months have been very trying, with the weather, work, the dogs to take care of and keeping GuyGuy happy…and healthy to his best. I have had to step back and try to stay as zen as possible for him, and me..since we do know they feel everything. He is doing as well as can be expected. The verdict is chronic hepatitis and he most likely will not die of it, but hopelly of “just” old age.For many months, I was hoping he would reach his mother’s age of 11.5, then I was hoping he would make it to the new year and now we’re in February and I am thinking that perhaps he could make it to his birthday in April.I have had to shut off some oytside perturbating factors to be able to fully concentrate on him..so far so good. Here’s a little video…GuyGuy_Rules
