Amnesia at the breed club. Long live the Barbet Moderne.

Today is another big day as there have been many over the years since the creation of a club for the Barbet et al.. there are yet again elections to vote for who will save the barbet Moderne from extinction...keeping in mind that the barbet Moderne (swiss kraüsli) was created in the 1980's by JEAN-claude HERMANS, to equal the work of Messieurs Korthals and Boulet..and destroy what was left of the VIEUX BARBET ( standard written in 1886 for a Barbet d'arrêt, not a converted standard poodletype.
  The Vieux Barbet will not survive another dictator because after 35 years of trying to keep its head above water, I think the situation is hopeless (has been) and the club is not the only one to blame.That's life.The history of the breed to date will be written and all those who fought to destroy each other and the breed will have their place in the long list of socutensonicehowIam...They are all in Lyon today, to vote..for another ignoramus.

Mrs Hélène Pêtre,Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco who always tried and believed something positive would happen for the breed.

Mr Rainier T. Georgii, who supported Mrs Pêtre and who also believed..The old Poppenspäler’s died with him.The new one has nothing to do with his work. Nothing.

Here’s looking at you.

Respect your elders..and cherish them.

Coccolina almost 12 and Booly Wooly, 10.5 years old… A fabulous duo.

I have been off for a long time because I have had a lot to do. I am also trying to get my motivation level up high enough to tell you so many things..This below is so true and when you read it, it hits home.

We have less and less people who know what a Barbet de chasse is, more and more who don’t care and a majority looking to make their production the ideal type.It does get to you after a while and on your nerves as you can imagine.

I have 2 treasures…they are great/great-grandparents, have produced healthy puppies and many champions. My dogs live with me and not “here, there and everywhere”. I think that is the price you pay for serious work, and a high level of enjoyment.

Ladies first! Barbet birthday girls…1 year old!
