Stay home and go the the Game Fair (haha, for the Mondiale of the Barbet where 8 dogs showed up and shined) or…
…easy choice. The last time there was a big dog event for the Barbet, it was in 2012, the symposium (haha). People came from as far as Sweden and Poland expecting to learn/hear something. Thery were totally ignored and spent the day waiting for something to happen. It never did. Luckily; many of us were happy to see each other and we spent a nice time together…I had approximately 20 dogs from my line on site. Not all are in the picture since some satyed in other hotels. After being continually insulted by breed “authorities” it was quite obvious no one would show up at Game Fair 2016…no one of any importance for the breed, that is. Most thought it was a joke. A sad one……

What a way to make a statement in the USA…where “stunning” is a most important feature! How proud I am of our work together? Very!
Here only in France, you can read that the “VIEUX BARBET” does not exist and is a concept totally made up..not a very nice way to treat some of these canine authors who are a reference for many breeds and why not the Barbet? Good question…I can hardly wait for them to explain how a poodle which has not changed in several hundred years, in less that 100 became the Barbet..Houston, there is a problem and solution is found with proper research, only. It’s being worked on, scientifically! Book on the right is from the SCC.I just would like to have one of those who claim otherwise to take out their proof and hardware and explain. Can’t be that complicated when one has lots of time and a LONG experience of the breed to diddle everywhere?! Can it? Is my question too hard to answer? These 2 dogs have nothing to do with each other…
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!
