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!
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.
These 2 have brought me more pleasure and laughs than many of the worldly things some focus on.
Booly Wooly ( GuyGuy) and Ermengarda ( Coccolina)…with the best in the world, how can you go wrong?
History is written by those who make a commitment to truth and honesty, not by those who have nothing to say.If you ever wondered why very few ever refer to the past of a breed threatened with extinction, re-incarnated in the 1980’s and only look to the future…could it be because they have nothing to talk about , but their own future? I have most of the archives on the breed making it difficult for anyone to refer to anything but Buffon, 300 years ago…when there was not definition of breeds other than what little information about groups of dogs, that had certain characteristics in common. Our information is a bit more concrete.
