This document below was "apparently
" written by the consensus of the club committee
(even a blond will never believe it) . As you know, they, meaning the club, have no information or any archives on the Barbet, breed they are supposed to be helping survive from extinction.They have never bothered to worry about itand can't answer any real questions about it.
When they say the Barbet is a mix of several water dogs, somehow did they forget the lagotto? first breed of the club? I do think they did forget to mention the kitchen sink, and the Bobtail, old English sheepdog, when talking about the composition of their designer breed. Let's get real, guys.They innocent bystanders are being manipulated by someone. Guess. Yes, Your guess is as good as mine? someone who has changed her version of the Barbet history as often as she changes ...Messieurs and Mesdames
of the Committee( which we wonder when they even had a meeting to discuss this, which as usual they most likely didn't)put your glasses on and read the SCC LOF listing of Barbets that shows there were Barbets in 1970...and those descend from the 20's and 30's, whether bimbo likes it or not.
We can't expect you to know it all or even care, but...keep in mind:
There are conscientious breeders working with the little Barbet blood still in existence and working for the survival of the "old bloodlines" which you have obviously no clue of what they are, so don't wonder why there are fewer and fewer Barbet breeders and proprietors at the french club.With a small f.Shame on you, all.
