The more research is done, the more it looks like... envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 05/12/2010 @ 09:46
...going back to Buffon in the mid-1700 and over the next 150 years to 1860 or so that the Barbet,the "generic" Barbet evolved for one into a Griffon and for the other into a Poodle( with the smaller versions of the Maltese/ the Bichon and the miniature poodle.

When you put the poodle aside,
then you have a Griffon.The "generic" Barbet being the ancestor of many breeds and not just the poodle.

There were 2 Griffons, a rough coated one and a silky coated one.
The rough coated one mentionned in texts around 1840 or so was the beginning of the Korthals, perfected by Baron E. Korthals and the other Griffon became the Boulet. There was another one but only in one area of France: the Boulonnais with also a silky coat.

A silky coat can grow long(Boulet/Barbet), the rough coat cannot( Korthals).
It looks like, at this point that all data points in the direction that would confirm what we knew already.The standard was written for a silky coated Griffon. It was a hunter. Hunting dogs with long coats are easy to handle, or no one will use them.
A farmer is not going to groom a dog or poof him out like a marshmellow...
A rustic dog is a dog who can go out in the rain, snow, water and shake off the bramble and dry easily.
A rustic dog is a dog even a man can go for a walk with.I don't think most men want to go for a walk in the woods on a Sunday morning with a marshmellow. That is contradictory to the being of a Barbet.
The Barbet is a rustic dog and even though it is unfortunately not in the standard, anymore, for xyz reasons we all know, it is still a rustic dog.

At some point, conclusions have to be drawn. Unless proved otherwise with supported data.
I will be posting some additional info as I now have some of the correspondance exchanged between Emmanuel Boulet and Baron Korthals.

Also don't forget to read up on Barbet history:

Back to grooming my marshemellow...still one leg and the tail to go.
"Guy Guy" wherefore art thou?

Good and bad hair days... envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 04/12/2010 @ 14:45
Finley's "bad hair day" prompted me to do a bit on GuyGuy whose coat is a nightmare to groom. With some dogs, it's a time for "bonding and both parties enjoy the time spent together. Well, that's not always the case.
I keep putting off and putting off doing him, until it becomes a nightmare. I still refuse to shave him down. I did it once last year and still regret it....
Below: 2 good hair days and one bad.I'm still not finished with him and he has gone into hiding.

Floirac on the left and her grand-ma Coccolina on the right.

Guy Guy...being as patient as a dog can be.More on that if we ever finish!

Not just a couch potato... envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 04/12/2010 @ 07:56
Those of you who know Guyguy and have seen him either:
on the couch,
on the bed or
in his basket..depending on day and time, also know that "yes, he can" get excited like "everyone": in snow and in water (or if he hears a duck on TV). No matter what the temperature is.( coming up!)

Here you see Coccolina and my 2 males, playing. Yes, I can stand outside and freeze my bum off because it's so cute to see.
( Froggies were out back...I didn't call them because i didn't want them to disrupt)

A cute snow photo envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 04/12/2010 @ 07:42

I really like this photo with Vera and Compay holding a "baby". I don't often show Vera photos because she is not of my breeding, nor does she represent what I promote. To each his own. The photo was too cute and yes, they were out back playing together a little. Vera doesn't really know how to play. I like it when she behaves like a real dog and not a guard dog!

Thank you for trying! envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 03/12/2010 @ 20:35

Whilst many think it's easy, "piece of cake"( fastoche) to have a litter, just put 2 dogs together and voilà! 2 months later 6, 8?10 pups are born...Well, that ain't the case and there are a lots of fails before you get a succeed. You cry a lot and then you think it will work "next time" until there are no "next times".Your dog is too old and you wish that you could have started whatever earlier and that you could have found the right help somewhere and then you give up.

Kudos to Anne Sophie for doing her best with Arkann. They are signing off, for a while to recover from tremendous deception. I think many of us can feel for them, if not most of us.

Thank you for having tried. My thoughts are with you. I have been there.!.html
