No, I didn't touch up the photo. And no, it was not a joke....
Not far from the truth, now. envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 30/03/2009 @ 20:37
As the French expression goes, "pas loin de la vérité". It would appear that we are not far from the truth in saying that E Boulet who gave his name to the Griffon Boulet selected from Barbets to obtain his Griffon, which was only one color. Brown or feuille morte (deal leaf) all of the others were left as Barbets. Many confused the Barbet and Griffon Boulet, I have told you that several times before. It would seem that this document from the book "La chasse moderne" circa 1914...would clarify any doubts. No Spanish water dog, no Poodle, no Portuguese water dog...not even a drop of Irish water spaniel. We're talking Briard and the likes. As the Thesis you saw, goes. Then WWI; so the few specimens left alive were in Belgium and in Holland.Pilote in 1886 was in Belgium.
[centrer]When you look at this photo of a Boulet, you can see the Barbet, at least some of them, not all, as still they are today. Yes.Even the coat type. This one has a shortened tail, but perhaps it started out as a Griffon Korthals and the Baron decided that the coat was not rough, so he passed him on the E Boulet. these 2 people worked closely together. So, why not? [/centrer]
How that happened? Beats the daylights out of me. All I have to go on are phénotypes until 1927. Then, I have all the genotypes.
So I would say..."la boucle est bouclée". The Barbet Français is a gun dog which was taken out of the 7th group in France and arbitrarily put into the 8th group because that person was against hunting and hunters. That, dear Bertha is the truth, nothing but the truth, so help me God.
2 Dogs were put down. No bad dogs? envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 30/03/2009 @ 19:53
You may not have heard because this is local French news.From 2 days ago. 2 Dogue Allemands attacked a 6 year-old. These were a male and a female and were household dogs. The owner was the girl's mother.
They killed her.
Last week, I was outside my house when school let out. My dogs were lined up along the gate quietly watching the people picking their kids up from the school down the street. The same people come by all the time.
Prior to that I had seen some stones on the front on the ground and had thought it strange that my dogs would pick up stones from the back of the house on the path and bring them to the front to play with. They have toys...
Well. I found out what was going on. This little girl was picking them up on the street in front of my house and throwing them at my dogs who were standing there, probably wondering what the deal was.
I was going to work at that moment and put everyone back inside, pulled out the car and drove past the people and the girl. I stopped and told her mother....as nicely as I could. Yes, even I can be nice.
NOT all dogs are going to react that nicely and not react or even bark. Mine are like that. they would never even defend themselves. My dogs don't deserve stones being thrown at them for standing there. Nor do any dogs.
I am not saying that all kids do that, but they should have their rears kicked when they do aggress dogs.
And those bloody pit bulls who attacked my Billy the kid in Sweden and thrashed him should also be put down. Bloody hell.
La Sauvagine, a French reknown hunting revue 1988 envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 30/03/2009 @ 11:20
This is about Ulmo di Barbochos de Reiau de Prouvenco and his hunting and retrieving talent. What he did had absolutely nothing to do with fetching a duck thrown into the water and retrieved in one minute flat..as happened recently at a BCE " working trial". We're talking real work: finding the duck in thick brush and following his scent as long as needed to retrieve him.
In the post: Origins of the Shepherds in Europe, I put a picture of my Molly ( who was 100% poodle on both sides, but still called a Grand Barbet) because her mustache is lighter than the rest of the coat on her face. it does take more than just thatto make a dog belong to a rare breed. You know that, of course! It was a pre April 1st joke.
