A Barbet is not a Poodle…

On the left is a Griffon Barbet and on the right is a Barbet Moderne ( Poodle type).

The standard was not  ever written for a Poodle…it has been modified several times to become a poodletype…The Poodle exists already. It was written for a GUNDOG called Barbet d’arrêt.

When you read here and there that the Vieux Barbet/Barbet Authentique and Barbet MODERNE are the same dog.. Then, you know that the person saying it is as blind as a bat. He or she has not a clue what he or she is talking about.

Sisters meeting up at almost 13 years of age !

Coccolina recently met up with her sister in the south of France. Short visit, but we enjoyed it. “Behind” Arkann ( brown) is her master and then of course, we think of her mistress who passed on a few years ago. People we/you meet are often through our passion of dogs and it is ever so important to keep up relations with dogs and their people. You never know when it’s too late..and then?

Arkann was fit as a whistle like her sister..You can definitely recognize a “type” here..


 

Best from Switzerland: Ela Samba

Could not resist sharing this beautiful picture of Ela Samba de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre, now almost 8 years old..She has had a wonderful career and done very well for our breed’s survival.

Compay’s last litter before he came home.

Compay is now home after being away for 3.5 years ( working for the breed).

His last litter was born a few days ago, and you can see the white markings he is famous for, but in the sand color. Love it!

Compay II, a couple of weeks old in 2007.

3 male Barbets available

Daddy Baxter

Mom Liriope

Father is Baxter, a lovely male I helped place 11 years ago( already!).  I had Baxter’s sister Bepop for one year here and I helped Boone go to the United Staes where he is having a very nice life.  I know the line, very well. Mom is Liriope de la Serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre.(no need to tell you how she is!) This gives you an idea of how they will grow up! That is always nice to know.
