Many of you know that PronaturaFrance
which is a non-profit organization working to help save endangered species has honored the Barbet 2 times:
the first time with an article assembled about the Grand Barbet in September 2008 and then more recently another written by yours truly honoring 3 lines of Barbet français since 1886 that I reconstructed with my historical documents.
a non-profit organisation, just like any other one needs funding to keep going. I had officially asked at the AGM in Paris 3 weeks ago, for the Club du Barbet, Lagotto et autres chiens d'o,
to become a member ( club membership fee of 400€ per year)and had asked for the committee to discuss it as they had spent 400€ on an add for the Lagotto in a truffle magazine. It appears that they "forgot" to talk about it. I thinbk it is a shame because there are almost as many members for the Barbet than for the Lagotto and nothing is being done by the club for the Barbet which is why if we want our Barbet français to survive, we have to take a certain amount of initiatives.
