Speaking of poodles...and transparency. envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 12/12/2008 @ 07:27
Recently there was an interesting "mix-up". As many of you know, I had contacted the person who knows the most about poodles in France, no not JCH, but Mrs Brestecher who spent her life fine-tuning the poodle and I had questions for her about poodle colors, morphology and what happened in the 80's when several poodles and rescue dogs were used to re-incarnate the Barbet de Bouffon (1780's). All this had been done without the authorization of the Poodle Club of France, but that's another history (coming up).
Apparently there was a slighty confusionand the subject of a re-dipping was raised at a committee meeting about a Mrs Fischer wanting to use a poodle to mix into the Barbet.
Can you iiiiiiimmmmmmmmmmaaaaaaaaaagiiiiiiiiine!?
I thought it was an April 1st joke, but no. I went to look on the Poodle club website and there it was...with the name mis-spelt. There are 3 of us with a similar name in the Barbet world and I know one of them well enough to know that she could have never asked for it. The other one, well that seemed quite unlikely also. There is so much poodle in many barbets that adding a drop more would make the poor dog explode.
Look under news. They even have the report on the committee meeting. Some clubs do communicate with their members to keep them informed on what is going on...
Of course, as usual some thought..hum... "Lets' go for the throat." Well, when all was said and done, since I had the copies of the letters I had written (you never know ) , it was very easy to prove my "innocence"...
Bottom line: 1.Always keep all documents at least 10 years (just like bank statements)and keep historical documents forever! 2. Work in transparency, so that even the ennemy knows what you are doing and they think it can't be possible for one to be soooooo honest, you must be hiding something, like they do. 3. Smile and keep a good sense of humour until the next tidal wave, which by the way, is heading straight our way.
I can see clearly now! envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 10/12/2008 @ 07:27
It is all now coming together and is very logical. A picture is a thousand words...

First, there was one...
Then, you take in your second one because she needed a home...
Bon baisers..........de Pologne with Zoya who is Ania's mistress and now Tania's too. Remember Tanya who had been re-adopted by Piotr, in Poland. There are very few Barbets to rescue, thank the Lord, but it happens.
