Barbet du Poitou oops, I meant Baudet, hum! envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 04/02/2011 @ 13:56
I am reading an article from the Chasseur Français in 1922, a reference magazine in France for hunters( and has been for well over 100 years). It says that the Barbet's coat is like the one of the Baudet du Poitou, and now with such fast links, no need to search for a long time... Sorry about the length of this link. I don't know how to shorten it. Imagine...those who think the Barbet should look like a poodle or a bichon!
Yes, I can hear you saying "yes,of course" but "how do I wash him once a week and blow dry him"? You go swimming together!,ane-baudet-du-poitou,le-baudet-du-poitoujpg.php&h=666&w=1024&sz=560&tbnid=Wi2jdYaNAYV_UM:&tbnh=98&tbnw=150&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dimage%2Bbaudet%2Bdu%2Bpoitou&zoom=1&q=image+baudet+du+poitou&usg=__ZjFvcylmQBmwjpn0sBOMoXOfABQ=&sa=X&ei=dPZLTYv6OYiu8QOyqsDeCw&ved=0CCsQ9QEwAw

Beating on a Barbet envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 03/02/2011 @ 18:45
Rumors killed the cat, some are working ever so hard on destroying the Vieux Barbet Français aka Authentic Barbet aka Old Bloodlines, or whatever you want to call him, but he is going to hang in there as he has since the 1920's for which we have records.
Look at this lovely dude, source of more controversy.
No names, ladies? or just his?


Sans famille, H. Malot 1878 envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 03/02/2011 @ 07:24

This is a very well known novel...the author refers to a poodle on the left and a Barbet, the black blob on the right. This shows that the 2 names Barbet/ caniche were no longer "interchangeable" and were 2 completely distinct dogs.
The poodle having been crossed with Greyhounds or Whippets or Afghans???
is now a much finer dog and groomed like a poodle is even today.
The expression "levretté" aplies to the Poodle. Meaning the stomack goes up. You can see that on a lot of Barbets, that is a dead giveaway as to their origins the Barbet stomach should represent a straight line.

The Buffon 1765 Barbet had evolved and the Barbet got his name back and became the rustic dog the standard was written for.This Barbet is the father of the Griffons and was never extinct. Like many other breeds nearly extinct, there were few, but there were some. Some is more than none.

3 people from Belgium! envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 03/02/2011 @ 06:36
Rare are people from Belgium to come onto my site as there are not many interested in the breed anymore. A shame because I am convinced there is a ton of information about the Griffon Barbet, as it is historically known, in that country.

We know that there were Barbets there in the late 1800's.

We know that the standard was written in 1891 for the Griffon Barbet by J de Coninck, president of the Société Havraise pour l'Amélioration des Races de Chiens.Le Havre is not far from Belgium.

... and that the Barbet is in the book "Races de chiens" written by the Comte de Bylandt who was Dutch in 1897.

Whether Barbets were brought up from France or there were breeders there, I don't know.I suspect there were breeders...enough for a standard to be drawn up. I can't fathom someone doing it for no reason.
There were Barbets at shows there, too. Cours-la-Reine in 1886. At that time there seemed to be more Barbets in Belgium than in written in a document I have.

If a Barbet was used to refresh, Bouvier de Flandres blood and another was used for a refreshing the Griffon Bruxellois breed, that would also confirm there were some around, and that people knew what they were enough to use them. And not just for "shows"!

I am thinking aloud and am looking forward to contributions!

Thanks to B.I. forum publicity I was given by an aficionado.

My 6 pack. envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 02/02/2011 @ 17:15

Jennifer came up for a couple days so we took the dogs out for a walk.
We're down to a pack of 6, meaning that Vera, who was absolutely not a pack-animal and didn't get along with other dogs, is now with a lovely young couple in a huge property all walled in where she is on a "mission".

It looks as if it is going to work for her, as it is a one-month placement which could become permanent.

Strangely, at my house the group dynamics has changed in the last couple weeks with being a much happier dog, Thelma playing mom to the Froggies and all of them enjoying each other's company outside.

Must say that I will never ever, as long as I live, ever rescue a dog for another breeder. I have also learnt my lesson on that one.
Vera did not have to pay for others' mistakes. I did. Vera deserves a nice life, seems to be a happy dog now after being rehabilitated to life and humans and how a dog's life can be nice!
