10th year anniversary

http://chiendeaufrancais.com/

This site went online at the beginning of February 2006. This was the first time a site went online in ENGLISH, in France, giving information to foreigners about the breed. I no longer feed it, as it is so old!

Since then quite a bit has evolved, for better or for worse.

A lot of water under the bridge as the true history  of the breed does take a long time to move forward. What has changed? Not much and even less in its home country where the breed lacks any kind of support from officials as other breeds do in their home country. This is today as we speak.

My mission has always been ( must be the teacher in me) to make sure poeple are informed and make choices with all the right cards in their hands. I have become a reference in the breed (whether I like it or not).

So, to celebrate, I made my lovely Barbets, some liver cakes..livercake

Conclusion: if you are looking for a Barbet, do your homework. Compare information…….. compare pictures and ask questions. You will rapidly find out who is competent in the matter, be it in France or anywhere.

 

 

Reading body language

Remember this picture from last week? The male pup was in the back…

And this morning, if you are able to read body language, you can see how he clicked on to the activity, and both pups are now melting into the pack. The dogs did it?! Well, they certainly helped…

Nice souvenir of the 2015 litter

It’s fun. Hard work and I am always happy when the pups go to their new families because my objective is not to keep them, but to share my passion for the Barbet!
