Puppies are the easy part…

..it happens once a year ( but not always), and it is generally planned out..the rest of the time is spent taking care of the dogs, making sure they are happy, doing research and answering the numerous questions people ask me about the breed and its history. That is not a very difficult part since I usually have the answers or the question leads me to doing some more checking to be sure of my information, since I hate misleading people. AND I enjoy helping.

Of course, my blood curdles when I see misleading, idiotic and deceitful comments about the Barbet..and there being only one…That is a permanent issue that is not helping either breed variety! It is very confusing to many/most people. However there are 2.

The “poof” Barbet Moderne re-incarnated/created in the 1980’s that they are trying to save from extinction? OR the Vieux Barbet that they say was extinct between 1940 and 1970..There is NO rhyme or reason to what is going on ..let’s face it?!

Facts versus fallacies or fake truths! How long will it last?!

Puppies: 3 weeks and growing

They understood “pipi-room” at 2 weeks of age, and naturally head to it when they can. It’s amazing how quicky they learn.                                                                                                                             

They are sitting up and moving around. Soon, it will be time to widen their horizons…They are so calm and peaceful..

 

 

 

 

 

A nose in a million: will detect anything…


I saw Froggy’s nose go up…and off he went. I am always so amazed at how good their noses are. That’s genetic, is it? So he brought it out of the field, I sad “lache”(let go) and Vennie came along to see what the fuss was about..They do what they were destined for.HUNTING…

Barbets et cotation SCC

J'aime me rappeler de temps en temps, que mes chiens, quoi qu'il se dise...de méchant et des propos diffamatoires que je retrouve encore sur certains sites et par un membre du club de race ( on ne se demande plus pourquoi beaucoup ont démissionné du club qui semblerait en grande difficulté et ce n'est pas étonnant) ont les plus hautes cotations Barbet LOF/SCC et c'est une fierté pour moi car je ne suis pas éleveuse de métier, mais par passion pour la race ancienne du Vieux Barbet, menacée d'extinction sans que personne d'officiel n'intervienne. Mais bon, c'est comme dans beaucoup de domaines, eh. Il y a des choses plus importantes sur la planète. Ermengarda (Coccolina) en est à l'origine pour moi, qu'il soit redit en passant:

French Lover dit Froggy

Ch-Compay II

Ch-Compay II et son fils French Lover dog en sont les dignes héritiers.Ci dessous la 5ème génération sous mon toit..Le type se propage de plus en plus dans les pays étrangers.
Vous cherchez des renseignements sur la race? Faites vos devoirs correctement, évitez les médisances, car ce chiens LOF/SCC vous allez le garder pendant de nombreuses années et il devra correspondre à l’idée que vous vous en faites..ce qui n’est pas toujours le cas dans les “livrables”!

2 varieties is a fact, not fiction or a dream..

One is threatened with extinction and the other is rare, but only because it exists since circa 1990! Fighting at French breed club has gone on for 35 years now. It began when neither you or I had a clue what a Barbet was…many came/tried and left. Not worth the insults.Club exists since 1981.

Ch-Compay II de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre:racer in type

Compay as a sire in the Netherlands with Astrid Vonck, of Outdoors kennel.

Compay would have never been able to have such a brilliant career, had he stayed in France. He has set his type and is at the head of a fabulous line of very typed Barbets.He will be 10 this year.
