Blue Boy de la serve de la Chapelle d'Alexandre: almost 3 years old envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 24/03/2009 @ 09:30
Blue Boy (Tiboubou x Thelma) aka Svinto is Booly Wooly's brother...Amazing, huh! Booly Wooly took from his poodle father, so is Grand Barbet, and Blue boy from the bloodlines 1 or 2 of the Barbet Français.
He has never been used for siring. Has B hips and eyes are ok.
...and reminds me of Caya ( Coccolina x Ungaro)
I have no clue as to what his brother Billy the Kid looks like. The owners decided at a certain point that they were moving to another country and that he was not going with them so they gave him away. I have no news since that happened other than the factthat he was recently attacked by 2 pit bulls. He did manage to survive. Well, in breeding there are ups and downs and sometimes we make mistakes. Always makes you feel good, doesn't it.
Barbet Français: next generation puppies coming up in Europe envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 24/03/2009 @ 08:41
There should be a litter in the north of Sweden at Rose Marie Näslund's Luddeslump's firstname.lastname@example.org
Then, early May (hopefully), one in the Netherlands at Henk Hilbink's email@example.com.Von der leibrücke
These pups are next generation, why? Because the parents all have some poodle or PWD or SWD in them( except the Barbochos de Reiau de Prouvenco, whose last dose of PWD dates back to the 1950's) but for the next generation, the parents have been chosen to be more Barbet français as opposed to Grand Barbet.That is their selection. All this, according to what was mentionned lower "In the news" from the book written by Eugene Gayot, Le Chien in 1865. When you redip, you must go back to as close as possible to an original for the next generation if you want to perpetrate that particular dog.*
No where are these (potential and to be born) litters regrouped and mentionned so it is not easy to be looking all over....creation.
I will be happy to announce any Barbet Français litters you may hear of, I don't claim to know of all of them.
* Keep in mind that if you put a pure poodle on the work of the previous generation, you will be setting the characteristics of the poodle and annihilating the work of the breeder. That's why using all dogs is important and especially the Barbet Français typed ones who in some cases are hidden away. A rare breed is no easy feat...
Genetics and dog breeds: for future potential breeders envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 22/03/2009 @ 07:59
Working with a rare breed is much more difficult, that doing a "common" breed. It takes time, experience, support and involvement.And transparency, in a nutshell.Lots of people mean well, but without being sufficiently informed they work against the breed.
This document is in French because the Barbet is a French dog so I have French references...!There is a bit of information also in English, enjoy! Just an example to illustrate: Take a Grand Barbet, so 100% poodle and cross it with a dog that has 50% poodle blood and 50% Barbet, is going to set the characteristics of the poodle in the litter..so you're bringing new blood into the poodle, not the Barbet. Or wait for the next generation and recross it with a Barbet then you will get characteristics of the Barbet with some poodles still in the litter.
In the 3rd generation, recross a pup with a barbet and you should have only Barbets and no more poodles. Crossing lines is not that easy, or everyone would know!
Guess who stopped by for dinner? envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 20/03/2009 @ 07:49
Left: Nelum Himalis Braise(Rölli)daughter of Unique Elle de la perte aux loups Right: Vera de la perte aux loups
Thelma de la perte aux loups
These 3 girls are all related genetically. You see that they can be curly or less curly depending what is "in" their pedigree, but whether they be curly or less curly, that is not a sole criteria for deciding what the dog is supposed to look like. The morphology is the first criteria, the coat is frosting.And lots in between!
She was kept away from my 2 males...who were waiting for a golden opportunity to do their job. Unfortunately, they were not needed and we didn't want to tell them. They seemed to be quite content sitting together for the photo. If you look real close, you'll see Rölli sitting in the passenger seat for the photo! Rölli had been to Switzerland to mate with one of the last Barbochos de Reiau de Prouvenco in existence today, well hidden there, near Fribourg.His name is Ulysse...A well chosen name, wouldn't you say? He has a fantastic coat with the so much needed suint in it and he looks a lot like my Thelma, both of them being descendants of Hercule di Barbochos de Reiau de Prouvenco. He, by the way, had only ever been "used" once which is a bit incredible when you look at the situation with males available to stud in the world....which is also a bit more incredible when you look at some others who are used and used and used....and used. Line 2: Barbet de Camargue, with a dose of Chien de Crau in him.
...On their way back to Finland with their precious car go!
6: 30 am this morning.13hrs to the north of Germany and then 30+ hours on the ferry to Finland. Then a few more hours to get home...Why? Because saving the Barbet Français from extinction is worth it.Yehman. Now we pray it goes well, more news in 30 days!
