This is what one of the pups of Che's litter was put down for. Dear heart.
And yes, I realize some of you are not going to appreciate this, "buuuut" as my friend Amanda would say, I have one wish for our dogworld
for 2010. It's very simple.To stop breeding poodles to poodles and calling them homogenous looking Barbets.
That is an insult to the Barbet.
A lot of diseases come from the poodle. There are health registries out there available for consulation on Poodle Pedigree databases, but who cares enough to look at them?
The Barbet, regardless of what anyone says, is a natural breed which was NOT selected by humans for whatever, like the poodle was. People need to stop accusing him and face facts.
Regardless of the fact that there had to be some outside blood added to the breed for it to survive.
ps: health issues( negative aspects: seizures, thyroid,), like colors( positive aspects) can come out after 12 generations
. That is a documented fact.
