This really makes me angry. Let’s say some of us know the sitution of the Barbet ( Old and Moderne)..and some breeders sell anything to anyone who asks( remember you are saving a breed..!hum…), never mind anything, like background or history. Some people are very misled into thinking they have a gem.. THE best dog in the world…Well..now’s the time to look into this very sad issue. The dogs will be up for adoption at some point.
They won’t be charging the astronomic prices some change for a cross-breed..and these dogs deserve their socutesonice owner, too. Not everyone has a Barbet for shows/ ego trps or financial reasons ( making puppies and selling them socutesonice). Some just want a nice dog from a real good breeder. That is quite obviously becoming too, more difficult since we have more puppy farms and overbreeding..
pfffffffffffffffft. And some wonder why I get so angry?
By that, I also mean all the dogs concerned are living under the same roof. That is not an easy feat to accomplish. You definitely know the dogs and their personality.
This is my friend Walda in the Netherlands.
This is where Isabeau ( Iabada) von der Leibrücke comes from. You look at the pups and you see how homogenous looking the all are. That is a sign!
If you were wondering how the mating went back in September..have a look!
The 2017 litter which was a fifth generation litter was a very very nice one. The pups have grown nicely..I need to do it again. Below you can see Grand-pa Compay II, his Grandson Nat-King and Nat-King’s father French Lover (on the right).Iabada will do her best! All my dogs are with me and we wish them well!
GuyGuy who is a real dream dog and a charmer..was branded as it goes when he was young. All unfounded… Well, here we are at almost 13 after being so ill 2 years ago and recovered..each day is a blessing. He sleeps more and more, but eats rather well and has his daily walk which tires him a lot.
The only medication he has is one to make the air circulate in his brain and regularly milk thistle. He is a happy dog and a fighter and still top dog in the household.He is smiling at the camera..as he does! We managed to give him a bath and I think he is happy about it.Life goes on.
