Amnesia at the breed club. Long live the Barbet Moderne.

Today is another big day as there have been many over the years since the creation of a club for the Barbet et al.. there are yet again elections to vote for who will save the barbet Moderne from extinction...keeping in mind that the barbet Moderne (swiss kraüsli) was created in the 1980's by JEAN-claude HERMANS, to equal the work of Messieurs Korthals and Boulet..and destroy what was left of the VIEUX BARBET ( standard written in 1886 for a Barbet d'arrêt, not a converted standard poodletype.
  The Vieux Barbet will not survive another dictator because after 35 years of trying to keep its head above water, I think the situation is hopeless (has been) and the club is not the only one to blame.That's life.The history of the breed to date will be written and all those who fought to destroy each other and the breed will have their place in the long list of socutensonicehowIam...They are all in Lyon today, to vote..for another ignoramus.

Mrs Hélène Pêtre,Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco who always tried and believed something positive would happen for the breed.

Mr Rainier T. Georgii, who supported Mrs Pêtre and who also believed..The old Poppenspäler’s died with him.The new one has nothing to do with his work. Nothing.

Here’s looking at you.

Vieux Barbet, anyone? Back to 1973!

A Froggy x Iabada pup. Litter 2017. Below, Iorga, in 1973. The type is there, and yes, he is the spitting image iof his father, Froggy!

Sisters meeting up at almost 13 years of age !

Coccolina recently met up with her sister in the south of France. Short visit, but we enjoyed it. “Behind” Arkann ( brown) is her master and then of course, we think of her mistress who passed on a few years ago. People we/you meet are often through our passion of dogs and it is ever so important to keep up relations with dogs and their people. You never know when it’s too late..and then?

Arkann was fit as a whistle like her sister..You can definitely recognize a “type” here..


Compay’s last litter before he came home.

Compay is now home after being away for 3.5 years ( working for the breed).

His last litter was born a few days ago, and you can see the white markings he is famous for, but in the sand color. Love it!

Compay II, a couple of weeks old in 2007.

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.

http://www.tibetan-lhasa-apso.com/Fr/FrMonPro.html Mme de Zarobe a écrit un livre très prenant et précis au sujet de la race qu’elle affectionne. Un jour…

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.
