Last weekend’s show in the Netherlands: a feast for the eyes!

Barbet_Thibault

This is Thibault…Nuphar’s Thibault…

I fell in love with this photo when I saw it as he shows his power and the look of a working dog who is supposed to cover ground when hunting. He is of a perfect size and will soon be filling out.

He has a fabulous coat, a rough open curl coat, carries his tail perfectly well and he just looks divine. We’re getting to a point where descendants are showing their blood and worth. Gigi in a post below has Coccolina and so does Thibault. Working the poodle out of the line, this line OUR line. That does not mean I am throwing myself flowers, because Coccolina is Verveine and so on and so forth….

Now if you think about it, up in Sweden we have some fabulous work done by a lonesome ranger and her foundation stock is  the U Barbochos de Reiau de Prouvenco.

Of course, it is coming together but we are not alone and what we try to do others work hard to undo.So, from one step forward and five back, what will the result be?

Thank you Anne P, thank you Walda B…you make me proud. Not to mention several others who shall remain nameless for now!…like Dudley, son of Caya de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre.
