Ch-Compay II de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre:racer in type

Compay as a sire in the Netherlands with Astrid Vonck, of Outdoors kennel.

Compay would have never been able to have such a brilliant career, had he stayed in France. He has set his type and is at the head of a fabulous line of very typed Barbets.He will be 10 this year.

 

D litter birthday wishes!

As years go by it gets more and more difficult to get news from the different pups in the litter! Some remain faithful and I am happy to get news from them. They are all healthy and happy and that is what counts the most.

Blast of the past: Thelma and son..GuyGuy

On the left,  Thelma ( BCE 2nd cat.) and GuyGuy ( BCE 1st cat), on her back.  On the right, mom and son again, side by side.I suspect this is also where some can say they have a “hunting line”.It probably takes a bit more than that to say so, but I’ll take it as a compliment since our dear Hercule di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco is in the line, too: a founding father of the Barbet de chasse! Then Vincacao, Armagnac..that all together makes it a hunting line?

Respect your elders..and cherish them.

Coccolina almost 12 and Booly Wooly, 10.5 years old… A fabulous duo.

I have been off for a long time because I have had a lot to do. I am also trying to get my motivation level up high enough to tell you so many things..This below is so true and when you read it, it hits home.

We have less and less people who know what a Barbet de chasse is, more and more who don’t care and a majority looking to make their production the ideal type.It does get to you after a while and on your nerves as you can imagine.

I have 2 treasures…they are great/great-grandparents, have produced healthy puppies and many champions. My dogs live with me and not “here, there and everywhere”. I think that is the price you pay for serious work, and a high level of enjoyment.
