The Barbet club of sorts (et al) no longer exists (finally) and the Barbet has recently become an orphan breed. Mismanagement of the breed, breeding to breed, lack of any kind of knowledge about its true history which is not about “the ancestor of the Poodle” nor is it about Napoleon’s mascot. A year ago, the whole thing exploded in their faces and the result is there, with a picture at the top of the page of the one who thought greatness was an quality/fication of one’s highness and disdain and moquery of others…never mind the falsified fatherhood declarations at ye ol’ scc. So, she was caught red-handed in her lies.
Now the club is dead. Long live the new club with probably another lot of ignoramuses in what the Barbet is, looking for fame and a type of fortune, again.
The SCC deals with people and not dogs ( contrary to what we would think) and they will only work with people who get along with eachother, so the Barbet is out as long as people don’t get along with each other. This has gone on for now 35 years and doesn’t seem it will end soon. I was happy to not have to contribute to this farce after 2012 when I was escorted to the door, and liberated.
In passing, 2 of my dogs, the Griffon types ( Vieux Barbet) are represented on that page next to the Poodle types (Barbet Moderne, invented by Jean Claude Hermans). Fanny Forigoler ( haha) de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre and Tchin Tchin de la perte aux Loups ( Thelma la douce), mom to my GuyGuy>> Booly Wooly de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre..father of Fanny.
A bit of “current” history for you.
As of today, Coccolina has reached the 1700 mark of pedigrees where she is listed as ancestor. The line is so popular that we are starting to see litters with her on both sides ( mom AND dad’s). That is absolutely amazing for a future bottleneck in the poor breed.
Time change coming up this weekend..meaning that some of the late afternoon walks will be impossible. New organization starting next week..In lieu of the moom ni the east, will will work with the sunrising! Argh!
A year ago we did not think he would make it and here is is, alive and ageing as well as possible, at 12.5. Now we will start counting by the month, til Xmas?
We all stopped talking to watch…
We did not have to say anything. He sensed it. So he put his paws up very carefully..and klet himself be touched. Very moving moment for us.
Homemade with chicken stock..they smell really nice and are very crunchy! They love them!
..looking for a loving family to take care of him in his older days..
This is Cooldady ( called Coctail) who after 9 years of loyal services to his mistress, needs to meet his next challenge: enjoy life with a nice family who would like a Barbet..He is 11 now and his brother Compay lives near him, so does his mom Coccolin, going on 14.He is healthy, castrated and had good hips.
