Their natural instinct prevails, regardless. He falls, I help him up and he knows I will. I helped his mother Thelma whelp him..why would I do anything else, but help him feel good until the end of his life? He’s my GuyGuy like all my dogs that I love and enjoy every day, in sickness and in health til death do us part?
(In the video, I am out of breath because I had to run after him..)
Mamma Cocccolina ( Ermengarda>> 14 years and 10 months) and GuyGuy ( 13.6 ) wish their D- litter from 2008 a very happy birthday! I hope to hear from a few of the others..they are spread out over the world!
This really makes me angry. Let’s say some of us know the sitution of the Barbet ( Old and Moderne)..and some breeders sell anything to anyone who asks( remember you are saving a breed..!hum…), never mind anything, like background or history. Some people are very misled into thinking they have a gem.. THEbest dog in the world…Well..now’s the time to look into this very sad issue. The dogs will be up for adoption at some point.
They won’t be charging the astronomic prices some change for a cross-breed..and these dogs deserve their socutesonice owner, too. Not everyone has a Barbet for shows/ ego trps or financial reasons ( making puppies and selling them socutesonice). Some just want a nice dog from a real good breeder. That is quite obviously becoming too, more difficult since we have more puppy farms and overbreeding..
pfffffffffffffffft. And some wonder why I get so angry?
GuyGuy’s last brother went to Barbet heaven yesterday. He is now the last one I am blessed with. He is my 2nd French Champion. He has done a lot for the breed and produced also several champions. He has a divine nose and can flare a duck a hundred meters away!
