My crazy GuyGuy..still hunting..

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..)

The stupid things you hear sometimes…

Barbet_haireyesThe Barbet needs to have hair over the eyes, so he cannot see…in order to protect him from the reeds in water ( I guess they jump out at him?!) and also to protect him from thorns…I never knew there were thorns in water. Working on my learning curve…Iabada_Barbet_reedAs you see..they don’t need to have their eyes covered to protect them, but their body.Perhaps some overalls ought to do it…for a rustic  dog…?The things you hear sometimes, do make you wonder.

Baltic champion, too!

“Apporte”, anything you want!

Barbet_apportefroguette_pheasant_may_barbetFor fun or for real…..we found a pheasant the other day…I jumped out of the car to pick it up. We played with it for a while and now…it’s snoozing in the freezer.
