Trying to find info about the Rives d'Olt
line. Well, it was under my nose. And it's logical!..Pfew. It is nice when things start working out in the puzzle.
I'm sorry I can't post the ancestry because I'll find it on a database within 24 hours.Then I'll get accused of mispelling names!
However if you think about it, it regardless of the path it took, goes back to Thais, in 1970 ( déjà vu?)
I also have a kennel name Merrylegs
and another vom Rutelsetein
, if anyone has any info?
We're talking VBBFL and official pedigrees born in the 80's.And of course real Barbets with Barbet blood, npa*, nswda* no nothing.
There aren't very many, but they may be coming back as the last one born was from Ulysse di Barbochos de Reiau de Prouvenco ( 2009)
( see line 4, under Old Barbet Français)
There were between 15 to 20 dogs born under this kennel name, all registered in Germany. This document comes from a very popular book about dogs published in Germany in 1995.
It's important to realise that the dog may have been
completely brushed out and "too clean" so had limp hair. Of course, it is not comparable to the Grand Barbet frizzy that many were promoting at the time who was a pure poodle ( so short tight curls) and the object of all the fights over the Barbet and what it is, just like today.
* no poodle added.
* no Swd added
