I am one, maybe the only around in the Barbet world to show such continuity over several generations..it even amazes me. These are all males..
A day, any day can become a real challenge..with older dogs. Guyguy had not been sleeping well as of recently..I was not hearing that “ahhhhhhhh” sound one has when you/he hits your/his pillow..he was tossing and turning..so I thought there was something not right. Osteopath came very quickly..and hopefully by Thursday he will feel better. No cardio training tomorrow for him. He is eating well and appears to have enjoyed the attention..as he always does. He is such a charmer.
I think I am much more aware of all this now, because I have aches and pains..too.
They deserve undivided attention.
I am the borther to the dude below..I made it to French Champion, SCC selection grid 3/6. Did a couple of movies for TV ( Nicolas le Floch) sired a mega line of descendants and now I am at home and retired. Enjoying Bresse..and my family!
Ermengarda ( Coccolina) is now in just over 1600 pedigrees on the database. There are probably close to 4000 alive today..I think that is a lot, but what can you do? Great-great grandmother is doing well!
It has been nearly 2 years since GuyGuy had been swimming and this was totally unplanned. Heis reflexes were tip-top, my GuyGuy.After all when you do it at 8 weeks, it’s forever!
He was ready to retrieve, with his grand-daughter Duna and nephew Nat-King
I did not want him to swim off since I was worried he would be disoriented in the water and get lost.He had a ball..Look at that straight back! What a delight!
