I did my my way…My proudest achievement!

…back to the beginning, my beginning and the real Barbet, a Vieux Barbet that does not look like a Poodle or a crossbreed fashion designer dog. I can sit down and admire this pedigree…and thank everyone who helped achieve this major feat in the Barbet world.

Birthday: Vennie and Froggy 2015 litter!

7 out of 11 is not bad..2 at guide school for the blind (one reformed)..One in Alsace and another in Paris.Maybe we will have news for next year! These are all doing well…Happy birthday and many many more!

Birthday Jubilee litter: 2007-2017 Bon anniversaire!


Ma portée “C” de Coccolina x Ungaro a été une des plus importantes du monde actuel du Barbet. Cette portée a permis à Coccolina d’accéder à la cotation SCC ( Société Centrale Canine) 5/6, qu’aucun Barbet a atteint depuis.

Les chiens issus de cette portée sont tous en bonne santé, bon pied -bon oeil  et cette portée a été très homogène comme on peut le constater (ainsi que la descendance).

Un chiot est devenu chien guide d’aveugle, 2 femelles ont été stérilisées et tous les autres ont une très longue descendance en France et à l’étranger. De multiples champions dans leurs pays respectifs sont à citer.

Coccolina serait, à ce jour dans le pedigree de plus de 1400 chiens à travers le monde et ses qualités sont nombreuses: des chiens agréables à vivre, bienveillants, calmes et avec très souvent une aptitude naturelle du rapport comme il se doit avec un vieille race de chien de chasse, qu’est le VIEUX BARBET.

Hélas, la variété que le club et la SCC se refusent à reconnaître, qui est celle d’origine et non celle du Barbet MODERNE, comme certains essaiyent, ré-incarné dans les années 1980 est gravement menacée d’extinction et à mon humble avis, vit ses dernières générations avant d’être transformée en prototype de Caniche.

C’est la vie…du monde canin d’aujourd’hui et je le déplore.Je ne suis pas la seule, et le Barbet n’a pas été la seule race abimée par ci- et ça..Même combat.

Merci Eva O. pour cette carte extraordinaire!

3 male Barbets available

Daddy Baxter

Mom Liriope

Father is Baxter, a lovely male I helped place 11 years ago( already!).  I had Baxter’s sister Bepop for one year here and I helped Boone go to the United Staes where he is having a very nice life.  I know the line, very well. Mom is Liriope de la Serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre.(no need to tell you how she is!) This gives you an idea of how they will grow up! That is always nice to know.

Uncle Boone in the USA







They were born March 9th.

Setting and reaching objectives.

After 10 litters and 81 puppies, selection work to my 5th generation, the highest SCC selection grid ( highest cotations SCC: results of all Barbets), several champions in France and in foreign countries, guide dogs for the blind, dogs with BCE/BICP ( hunting trials on natural instinct since I am not a hunter) and reaching objectives set in 2003…I can now step back and enjoy the result of my work. I do not like what I am seeing in France at all, and have decided to step back and smell the roses in my garden for a while.

There are some very very pretentious, pompous and nasty, incompetent people who are in it for the money, have no competences in the breed ( have not a clue what a Barbet is) and who respect nothing and no one. So be it. Suffice to read what belittling stupid infantile comments are posted on a socutesonice social network. called Parlons Barbet…Rather nauseating…but nothing new in France where the breed whether Old ( Vieux Barbet) or Modern ( Poodle type) all LOF/SCC  will never ever get along. Breed club being incompetent since the beginning, in 1981..there is basically no hope left of survival of the old breed and the new Modern barbet can be assimilated to a Labradoodle, but just less expensive, quoi que…look at the average Barbet price in France, for very often a new breeder and a crossbred, crossbreed. Amazing.


On that happy note. Enjoy your Sunday. Just to reassure some, I am not going anywhere. I am here to stay and make sure people remember what a Barbet is, since many breeders do not.



My GuyGuy and the puppies..

This litter has been adorable, the pups adorable, the owners adorable..my only regret is that GuyGuy was sick at the time he could have mated Dabadoo..and I did not yet know he was ill with his gallstone issue..otherwise he would have been happy to oblige( even at his age) and Froggy would have been fit for the next litter. However, you don’t always do what you want..and it doesn’t always work out the way you want it to.

My choice to keep a male from this litter was a very hard one…and in fact til the last day, I could not decide. The decision was taken by the male himself who had decided he was going to stay.That was that.
