This photo is of Georgii of course,proudly presenting Poppenspalers' Bacardi along with a male sibling of Hera di Barbochos de Reiau de Prouvenco which you saw below in a recent post.
I don't think this photo is a secret to the "Barbet world". It has probably just been withheld for many( obvious) reasons.
One of which being, "what you don't know won't hurt you".
except that his mother is Rasta, a Spanish water dog.So this pedigree leaves to be desired.When I recently had my conversation with the SCC official at the Championship show in Paris, that didn't seem to bother him because there are false pedigrees in so many breeds that is is not really a big deal. What is important here is to look at the photo very closely and understand the objective.
You will notice that the Barbochos de Reiau de Prouvenco is a fawn color which Mrs Pêtre recently confirmed that Douma had produced fawn puppies so it was of no surprise to her that Ulysse di Barbochos de Reiau de Prouvenco had done the same.The ears are grayish black. Similar to the description of R'Lucky's color (on the official SCC document I have).
Then you will see that the morphology of the 2 dogs is similar and finally that the coat on the Barbochos is curly when short. Tight curls can only be short( Hera being an example).However, the standard says long coat and when short curls become long they unwind.http://chiensdeau.free.fr/BarbetenBresse/articles.php?pg=art60
That is another reason for demanding transparency on the breed.
People who think they're working for the breed who don't have all the cards in their deck can't play the game.
So, taking a dog issue from a SWD and putting poodle on it without haveing re-dipped with Barbet before, is not helping the survival of the breed. Think about it. A Barbet without any Barbet blood is not a Barbet.
