No proof in his pudding.

…Nothing new..French breed club ex-caudillo, pumping chest up when speaking about the Barbet being  “bel et bien un chien de chasse” despite being in the water dog group, but as usual does not back up his empty statement with any proof. As usual, who needs proof or facts when you can just throw words around, as one does most of the time.

That person never did anything about the issue in France, and so it goes on in the UK.

What is really hilarious is when presented at Crufts, no one of them green-T’d members ever mentionned “GUNDOG”…or even how it worked!

You would sort of wonder if anyone was going to say anything about how much hunting they do with their Barbet in the UK as opposed to talking about who got cutoff the picture.wtf.

Ploughing right along: cara Coccolina

My greatest achievement? Coccolina has now reached the 1500 mark of pedigrees she is in. She has been a MAJOR contributor to the type, character, health of about 1/3 of the Barbet world*. No small feat. She is the only Barbet in France to have reached the 5/6 level of the SCC selection grid. I am very lucky and blessed.

  • *I’d mention color, but I do not breed for color, nor do I sell for color..
