Respect your elders..and cherish them.

Coccolina almost 12 and Booly Wooly, 10.5 years old… A fabulous duo.

I have been off for a long time because I have had a lot to do. I am also trying to get my motivation level up high enough to tell you so many things..This below is so true and when you read it, it hits home.

We have less and less people who know what a Barbet de chasse is, more and more who don’t care and a majority looking to make their production the ideal type.It does get to you after a while and on your nerves as you can imagine.

I have 2 treasures…they are great/great-grandparents, have produced healthy puppies and many champions. My dogs live with me and not “here, there and everywhere”. I think that is the price you pay for serious work, and a high level of enjoyment.

Barbet to standard*

User comments

The Barbet standard has been modified several times in the last 30 years…and each time application was immediate by the questionable management of some . The  b-Barbet is a dog with a mustache and a beard with a wooly curly coat. That is  precise enough, isn’t it for a rustic gundog..pfffffffffffft. It’s called “genetic diversity” and the full spectrum is not represented here. With less than 50 births per year in France, for the last 30 years, strict observation of the standard is really of utmost importance, so they say. They? no comment.   * Lambs to slaughter…R Dahl.

 

 

 

 

It’s all in the head…but I am looking for the common denominator!

Hercule di Barbochos Reiau di Prouvenco.

It is an extremely hard job to try to set the lines and show how they evolve  for it is not always easy to get photographs. I want to thank the owner of Cilla for contributing to the Barbet’s history…with a capital B.

NB There is poodle (+) in all of these dogs, but not in Hercule.

Love to see their eyes, don’t you?!

If you read this in French, you should be able to get an adequate translation into your language.Where it says ,A European History, you will see that it says that :…Barbet amateurs notice some similar characteristics between the 2 breeds…as we speak, I am reading JC Hermans “ANTHOLOGIE DES CHIENS D’EAU ET DES RETRIEVERS, vol 3, p168 and it says, “Les Barbets…un instant ces chiens ont porté le nom de griffon Boulet parce que…”

C-litter birthday: 2007

A few days ago was the 9th birthday of my second litter and the first with Ermengarda/Coccolina , who had come to me from Italy, with Ungaro.

Barbets_Jennifersm Now looking back, I must say it was a litter that changed the course of the breed as we soon found out when they started reproducing. There were mostly only black dogs or some brown, but nothing else.

From this litter and the fabulous people who contributed to its success, Coccolina achieved a feat not another Barbet has ever reached. The SCC “elite B” level.Barbet_Coccolina1sm

Below are the names of the pups and to this day, only one has disappeared, meaning I lost track of the owners.

A wonderful litter who reproduced quite a lot, in several countries and their descendants have had litters, and on it goes!

Happy Birthday to all of you, may you stay happy and healthy for a long time!

Today is Thelma’s birthday…

Thelma

I got this lovely gift…a picture of her Grand-daughter in Sweden. Yes, there still are Old Barbets around…( Vieux Barbet). They do show up in various lines, even where there is a heavy poodle influence. Again, it’s a matter of selection. You will also recognize the type of coat that is very characteristic of my line.
