We are all home for the reasons we know..or hope we are and we know because sometimes people do not know whatisgoingon..I am serious..dead serious. We all believe some information blindly at times and at others, we doubt…depending on the source..after years of brainwashing people the believers of the Barbet de Buffon have quietly removed most of their references to him and his Spanish Water Dog..still leaving people to believe if they have a SWD type..it is a Barbet..well?? Think x2 because sometimes others are better informed than you are..On that happy note..stay safe!
Coccolina’s eye has this awful looking growth on it. It started last summer and is getting bigger, slowly but surely. Vet agrees it is unpleasant BUT it is not life-threatening. It can be removed, but I think anaesthesia could be dangerous at her advanced age. I am sharing this with you here and now because the other day when I visited her daughter Corisande, almost 13 years of age, I saw the beginning of a similar growth on HER eye. Now, if you have this removed, do it as early as possible.. Coccolina being in almost 3000 pedigrees around the world, I suspect there may be the issue somewhere and it’s best to know about it.
.. teeth still working well..

Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Valentine’s day is the perfect day for an announcement of importance. As many know, we are reaching the end for the old breed. After many years of working to reach my objective,I have decided to go to the next step.
I am looking for a female “outside” the box to continue the Vieux Barbet line. The ultimate objective is to use the stored “straws” of Ulysse di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco to help in the survival of the breed, the old breed.
She must be of proper type/morphology and temperament.
I’d rather stay away from brown.
I must be able to work with someone I can trust and there will be terms to a contract we will establish together. This will be to avoid any abuses or excesses.
Please contact me privately.
What we see more and more at dog shows is some very Modern Barbet specimens and rarely the old breed.. especially in France where judges have merrily deviated on the breed and no longer can pretend they know the standard…years of mis-management that we pay for, cash. A Barbet should MOVE, Cover ground and show power and strength. They are not city window shopping dogs..
