Time to smell the roses…and enjoy my Barbet: French Treasures…

…and enjoy my graal. I have worked very hard to reach this point, and seeing that the breed club no longer exists( they accomplished their mission, running the breed into the ground…It’s probably the best time to take a break, wait and see…. At some point people may or may not come together and deal with factual information concerning the Vieux Barbet, and not rely on internet heresay, rumours and fantasy. I find it more important to watch my dogs interact; enjoy them as they enjoy each other and will think about more puppies, later! I will take the time to share more pictures and deal with the factual history of the breed…as before.In the meantime enjoy visiting other French sites and learning about their contribution to the breed. A breed severely threatened with extinction. I hope that people will develop the critical thinking skills and stop being mouthfed the theories and fantasies they are drinking up like nectar.

You can lead a Barbet to water, but you can’t make him swim!

 

After 35 years, back to the drawing board.

It now appears that after years and years …and years of nothing, we now have the real nothing. The club is dead, long live the club.

I will not waste precious time on the issue that I have been talking about for a long time. Well, it came to a head and blew up in the president’s face which serves his nastiness right. JCHermans wants his club back, so he fought tooth and nail but cannot survive it on his own.

Now there will be a petit combat de coqs  with the petits derniers deciding to go for it..wait and see.I have rarely seen a nastiest bunch of people around such a nice breed and I think it serves them right.

What no one ever got through their head is that to build the future you must learn from the past, even great French cooks do it…we are in France..

Speaking of cusine..and one of my favorites: Black Forest cake, you can get the best, the creative:

…and what is  of mass production, and many are happy with it.

Enjoy your Barbet Moderne future, Long live the Vieux Barbet..de France.

With more and more designer breeds around and people wanting “one”, for xyz reasons, it is becoming very difficult for the Vieux Barbet to survive, since  many newer breeders are not particularly interested in the breed’s history and would much rather “start from here on”. However they do love to mention it is a very old French breed…but skip over the important information…and selection to type.

Now EVEN the Australian Labradoodle people are showing lineage….

I did my my way…My proudest achievement!

…back to the beginning, my beginning and the real Barbet, a Vieux Barbet that does not look like a Poodle or a crossbreed fashion designer dog. I can sit down and admire this pedigree…and thank everyone who helped achieve this major feat in the Barbet world.

When there is a will, there is a way!

I am very proud and honored to introduce lovely Arlan Rún d’Aubépine. He is the son of Ulysse di Barbocheos Reiau de Prouvenco and Ela Samba de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre. He was born  on July 5th 2017.

3 male Barbets available

Daddy Baxter

Mom Liriope

Father is Baxter, a lovely male I helped place 11 years ago( already!).  I had Baxter’s sister Bepop for one year here and I helped Boone go to the United Staes where he is having a very nice life.  I know the line, very well. Mom is Liriope de la Serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre.(no need to tell you how she is!) This gives you an idea of how they will grow up! That is always nice to know.

Uncle Boone in the USA
