Carmencita just turned 5 years old .5 is a magic age is Sweden.
She is a typical "Vieux Barbet" "Authentic Barbet" "Old Bloodlines " look.Yes, there is a lot of poodle in the pedigree, but as we know half the litter takes after the mother and half the father. However, even the ones that look
like poodles will have Barbet blood...that they can transmit in the next generation! My Guyguy is another example. He definitely has a lot of poodle blood, poor guy! BUT, you are witnesses to what he has done with Coccolina.
Logic said to be sure to not use him with another poodle type. That is called "selection". That is what I was complimented for at the Concours Général Agricole
, in Paris last week. No one can say my dogs looked like overgroomed poodles. I was complimented for my dogs' rustic look
which is what the Barbet is.
Don't let anyone tell you that you "groom" a barbet. If someone does, run fast.
Read pedigrees, even if as many pedigrees, there are soem wrongs, the rights tell you what is going on when you see the photos. Don't take pretentious speeches for granted.http://www.pawpeds.com/db/?a=p&id=784478&g=4&p=bar&date=iso&o=ajgrep

I am terriby, terribly excited and had not planned on this post this morning, but after getting the photo of Carmencita's birthday(did you see what is in that plate?!) and seeing the Pré du Rédy blog yesterday, I had no choice. This is bliss...I love making families and having dogs fit in them! My "theories" are prou
After many dogs with Barbet blood being blacklisted and attacked in several countries for too many years, fighting tooth and nail
is finally starting to come together.
"A bas" le caniche, dans le barbet!
Will do the Baudet bit later...
