Deetha Déjà Vue ( Nelum Himalis Braise x Ulysse di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco, purest Barbet blood in existence) and Enigma ( NH Braise and CH-Compay II de la serve de la chapelle d'Alexandre). As it turns out, and I had to check with THE person who wrote the book on color genetics...both male and female have to carry the gene. Meaning Ulysse and Compay. Meaning that Braise (having some poodle in her) and Ulysse not (in a million years) and Compay ( having some poodle and some Spanish water Dog and Portuguese water dog way back, some of which obviously carried or were sand or fawn)carries it too.
This means, bottom line that the fawn can also come from the Pêtre's Barbochos de Reiau de Prouvenco line or even Thais...in 1970.
From where I see it, Ladies and Gentlemen, if Wycliffe T series, circa 1959 can transmit a dog that drags hind legs when moving, why can't a Barbet transmit a color from 1970? hey.....
I hope you followed that til the end.
By eliminating colors, you eliminate old blood.Not other defective parts.
