Pressure... envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 18/08/2011 @ 07:27
The more you know, the more you realize you know nothing. – Socrates

How true! I took this off Tracey's blog. I must admit that I have had a lot of pressure with the writing of the history of the Barbet and the same pressure to publish.

As my friend in the link below, who has taken 11 or so years to put the story of her beloved breed together, I have still a bit of time to get to the 11. It is true that the more I discover, the more questions I have and it is really hard to get answers and it is only getting harder.

Some of you have seen this before, but this is the final version.

People who know "things" clam up, especially on certain issues and others who know much much less seem to have the most to say, information which is generally of no use.

It's very to read about how others perceive your work.Yes, I do work very hard: on the history of the breed (because I am the only one to have most of the factual information available), with the puppies and with my dogs and I think it shows! Thank you Tracey.

A study within a study envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 17/08/2011 @ 10:27
I am working on the history of the Barbet moderne as I have mentionned previously. Within that framework, there is information about health in the years 1980/ 2000.There is no Barbet blood in any of those dogs as the first crossing Barbet moderne/ Vieux Barbet took place in the early 2000s when a Belgian breeder decided to use Vieux Barbet blood against the will of the self-proclaimed-re-incarnator-president of the Barbet de Buffon, circa 1763.
A dog that had no standard as standards didn't exist.

That information has been posted on the B.I forum as some of it may be right and some wrong and it is not posted to slander as some like to do with dogs, but to inform.It is not destined for the general public.
It would be nice to be able to update it honestly for the good of the breed.There were some very unhealthy lines 20 years ago.
As I was discussing this morning: in a litter there may be some sick dogs, some carriers and then of course, thank Gawd, some clean. That's where the work starts. Using the clean or carriers intelligently for the future of the breed.
What a shame some go around slandering others' lines.

Information can be cross-checked more or less now, and some are able to show facts and not just talk for nothing to say.

Those around at the time and still today know there was not much concern for health issues or origins of dogs, back then.

The prince of amateurs! envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 17/08/2011 @ 10:07
The Google logo today is honoring a man, who calls himself the Prince of Amateurs. That reminds me of what a "breeder" in France is called when he can ONLY have one litter of pups per year and it is not his main activity for a revenue.( Thank Gawd!we would die of hunger
)Amateur makes it sound amateurish and there have been tons of articles written about the difference, pros and cons of professional versus amateur breeders.AND whether one should be called a breeder when one doesn't blablabla...I think there are more important issues to consider than wording. On the other hand, how you turn your sentences is a very agile way of making people thing something you don't mean. I'm learning that, too. Amazing what deciding to work for the surviaval of a rare breed brings to your life.

More documents envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 15/08/2011 @ 09:02
I have come into a large amount of correspondance( some photos) concerning the Barbet Moderne and how it got started in the early 80's( with names of protagonists and the likes). I have always said I was not going to write their story, but then, "never say never", eh?..with all the information I do not want to keep for myself which is not "right" when working with a rare breed French and being in France, I have decided to start a post and add information as I get through it. I think I owe it to people who are interested in what really happened SINCE the writing of the standard and to times closer to us.
Again, the Barbet moderne is only a copy of the Barbet de Buffon which was the basis for a lot of dogs (300+ years) ago and never had a standard of its own( still doesn't).
Then, the fact that information about the Authentic Barbet/ Vieux Barbet is unscrupulously stolen off my sites and slandered, I thought: "what the heck?
