Ask me how proud I am?!

1974..a Vieux Barbet par excellence.

These 2 beauties are descendants of my French Lover de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre..and Giorgia della Corte dei Berberi in Italy. A very close cooperation since 2005. It takes time but it pays off. Vive le Vieux Barbet...in remembrance of The work of Mrs Hélène Pêtre and Mr Rainier T Georgii.

There are approximately 180 Barbet breeders in the world. 4/5 are Vieux Barbet breeders. It’s not a money making endeavour..Please do not think you will find one so easily.

Barbet Moderne breeders are a dime a dozen and their production is to sell dogs.

 

 

 

Ageing dogs and their loving people

It is quite obvious that growing old together is the best possible situation. When in 2007, I was contacted by a couple of “older” people..It never even occurred to me that they should/could not have a dog. I since then, found out that there ARE breeders around who refuse to sell people beyond a certain age..I am hallucinating., I thought.

Well, I was not…That is pure discrimination.

Corisande, 12.5 and her mom on a beautiful walk in the country.

It is obvious certain dispositions should be taken so the dog does not end up in a pound or some other horrible issue. When that is arranged up front, then all is settled and you enjoy each other.

Video souvenir: TiliTili then and now!

Nalia, her niece..

TiliTili today, nice overall morphology. Very typical of the old line/Vieux Barbet. Lovely character

As you know TiliTili was here last week and I have the video again, where she starred. Many people who have a Barbet today remember this video and it brought back memories..

A story of love and respect for the Barbet. Mom, dad and daughter.

GuyGuy, Coccolina and their daughter TiliTili ( Fasila Chanter) in the middle. This will never happen again, but it did once. I am very proud of this picture..once in a lifetime.Not just about 5 generations, but also a family.
