We have finished this visual part of the history of the breed. It is so, for there are no language barriers to consider.
There are a few mistakes to be corrected after the holidays, which will not stop your understanding of the evolution of the Barbet.
My main objective was to finish today, a very historical day, and to give fuel to those who need it for their “petite” discussion about the breed…
I hope you enjoy it as I did, working on it for several years.

I am onto my next Barbet project! Stay tuned and Happy Holidays to all!

Bird watcher…respectful and polite.

Barbet_watchJust because it is said that the Barbet retrieves..does not mean it is at all allowed to chase birds….that is forbidden.

They have a mission, but they are to be respectul of other creatures!This is Iabada, wathching birds go by and feeding!

Today is international Guide Dog day for the blind

Since 2007 and my first Guide Dog, I have had several in Paris and Lyon. I am very proud of that achievement because a guide dog must have a very steady character, not be hyper or a barker.Just as a hunter, they must be calm, trainable and devoted to their mission. It’s not always the case, since you cannot bat 1000…as the expression goes. In Lyon I am in the second generation which will be within 2 years, hopefully replacing the 2007 one. These 2 are from the 2015 litter and are training as some of you may know, in Lyon.

Thank you E.O.
