Compay and his daughters


In the video:

This is Compay, dad of  the froggies ( Froggy and Froguette). He lives in the Netherlands where he is working for the breed. I was about to have him castrated a couple of years ago since I had 3 males and my future breeding plan did not include him ( despite my love for him).

Several people have told me over the years that they got a Barbet after seeing him and I am proud he has been a model for the breed. However, I realized he could be happy in another home where he would be the KING TUT and since I trusted the person( I do not trust very many people in the Barbet), I let him go….He has made fabulous healthy puppies and has continued producing the colors so looked for in the breed.

I made the right choice and am still as proud of him as I ever was!

Great-great grand-ma


It goes without saying that proper selection makes a difference in the result.


ccfacts12Great-great-great Grand-ma Zeolite Opus; who probably contributed her size to the line she was 49 cms, and rather curly balanced out by the less tight curls of CH-I Caravaggio.


How many generations is that? 7?Barbet_Verveine

Well, Barbet_Herculethat will be with Verveine on the right

And 8 with Hercule di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco…9 with Douma who is his mom..douma_Barbet10 with JoyeuseBarbet_Joyeuse, then we get back to S’Gandar /Thais which is the reason why there was probably sand in the litter..voilà, voilà.

The Barbet is a breed, threatened with extinction. It should not be taken lightly and breeding for ego should be banned.

Do not taker for granted a Barbet is a Barbet until the breeder you have selected can prove he or she can trace back the pedigrees beyond a database…ask questions! There is a selection to save the old breed and that selction is not given to just anyone who has decided to breed…and certainly do not trust anyone who just shows Barbet pups to sell them. Been there!

Now in this particular pedigree,  there are interesting dogs and less interesting ones. I have just tried to show you how you can go back and select ( not a can but a “MUST”) in lines and have an idea of what you are going to produce.

Selection must be rigorous and it takes time, research and knowledge of the breed and of its history. Things don’t just happen….and if you want a dog that looks like a poodle, ask a poodle breeder.

DOGPEACE ( traduit du suédois)



Lorsque les organismes traditionnels du monde de chien n écoutent  que de répondre et défendre plutôt que de comprendre et d’améliorer le travail et se sent espoir de changement comme une tâche impossible et le désir . World Dog aurait besoin d’un DOGPEACE qui, comme le mouvement activiste de Greenpeace peut se rendre visibles et entendu dans le bruit médiatique . Un mouvement avec une clarté peut prêter attention aux questions et des événements actuels . Un mouvement qui surveille attentivement les nouvelles et surveille chien tendances et les développements mondiaux . Un mouvement qui n’a pas peur de poser des questions. Qui oserait à susciter un débat et mettre en évidence les problèmes en vue d’éclairer et d’ apprendre à sensibiliser . Ce est seulement quand nous devenons conscients de notre situation, nous pouvons agir . Nous avons besoin d’ un mouvement qui ne est pas peur de mettre leur pied quand ce est nécessaire et requis. Un canal sur les problèmes et les difficultés peut voir et identifier des possibilités de moyens de changer . DogPeace où êtes-vous ?

Je pense moi-même activer un nouveau titre pour le côté Kois d’aborder des sujets pertinents pour nous et notre vie quotidienne dans le monde de chien, et non moins Barbetvärlden . Bientôt , un titre dans l’en-tête du ministère de l’ avis et opinions .


When traditional organizations dog world listen only to respond and defend rather than to understand and improve the work and feels hope for change like an impossible task and desire. World Dog would need a DOGPEACE which, like Greenpeace activist movement can make themselves visible and heard in the media noise. A movement with clarity can pay attention to issues and current events. A movement that closely monitors new dog and monitors global trends and developments. A movement that is not afraid to ask questions. Who would dare to provoke debate and highlight the problems in order to inform and learn to educate. It is only when we become aware of our situation, we can act. We need a movement that is not afraid to put their foot when necessary and required. A channel on the problems and difficulties can see and identify opportunities for ways to change. DogPeace where are you?I think myself activate a new title for the next Kois address topics relevant to us and our daily life in the dog world, not least Barbetvärlden. Soon, a title in the header of the Ministry of views and opinions.

Thank you Eva and Koi for your support…Bless our dear Barbet.

On the left, Ursus and Udine di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco and on the right another photo of the U-litter at the Leobonnerie. In the photo is Ashley, my poodle, Mollymae, Thelma now going on 12, Poppenspaler’s Vincacao ( who recently passed away at age 14) and some of theU- litter pups. What a nice souvenir. That day we were working on them going to water…Miss you, Georgy. One of the most generous, kind-hearted men I have ever met. Your “legacy” lives on in these litters born in Poland and Finland.

…thank you Inge, for sharing so much.
