Going back in time.

A very important date faraway made it that the team Barbet had to go to the kennel for several days…I am quite behind on posting, but that is the way it goes! I do not like leaving them, but they are well taken care of. They know the place and most important: they are together.







Got back…took

Barbet-mobile and wend to get them!


What did they do? Ran straight back to the garden to see what had happened..all back to “normal”!barbet_home

Ela Samba’s pups.


Ela Samba de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre…gave birth to 9 pups, in Switzerland.Mom is fine, Grand Ma Carmela is happy because she was able to use a male of her breeding to sire Ela. Always a proud moment.

Birthday girl: Isabeau von der Leibrücke

Then…and now! She is a sweet as she looks. Dabadoo is the daughter of ULYSSE di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco…one of the last 2 pure Barbets left in the world.A lot of weight on her shoulders.


Un petit air de famille?

Nice to be able to keep up with some of the Barbets who have come through here. Vera was a not-happy-at-all Barbet where she lived in the Netherlands. She was accused of having bitten some people…so I drove halfway and rescued her. She spent a while here with mine. Relearned to trust people and dogs and when I thought she was ready for her nice happy family and greener pastures, she found a nice family to live with. She is now in the UK and best friends with the 2 children and a loving family. Her  family gives me news every so often and I really appreciate it. Vera will be 12 next month..looking good, eh?Barbet_Vera_girl2013

I am glad I did it…Vera is special to me. Must say, with the world as it is today…I would never do it again!

A rose is a rose is a rose…

abarbetisabarbetVery exciting day, 6 weeks now and this morning they all went out to do the rituals. Un petit moment de bonheur pour moi...I picked up 10/11…have not found last one yet! They are exploring further and further in the big garden they have. More this evening. Big day today, Corinne the canine educator is coming…

What is really exciting is seeing how they progress and the influence of education.

….And the  reflexes they acquire.
