It was not.I wish it were and had been, but, no. Sorry, guys.

The Barbet? A myth. envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 01/04/2012 @ 07:41
In the news:
A couple in the north of France, or south of Belgium, depending on the day,is working on the survival of the myth:There have been no births of Barbets since 1940.We are formal about this information and we will prove our historical theory of survival of the fittest and that might makes right this coming summer at the Symposium where I will be presenting my Veterinary Thesis to become a practician. We are the only ones working on saving it from extinction with our Swiss friends.
Yes, all breeds evolve and Mrs Fighter's theories are all pure rubbish, we are creating a pyramid system to put a Barbet in every home in France as Henri IV did"

What about the fact that some people say that JCH created a designer dog 30 years ago?
"Who is he? We have never heard of him. Mrs Fighter can't spell and her theories are rubbish and a figment of her imagination..."

"A Barbet is a nice tall square dog that has a coat you must shave at 4 months of age and keep it short. That is the beauty of this breed that has a long coat.It has evolved nicely since we took it over.Look at these beautiful dogs and the nice strands of its coat.

Concours Général Agricole Paris 2012: VOS CHIENS envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 31/03/2012 @ 10:28

Nice surprise in the mail this morning! Mr Sanches from VOS CHIENS magazine will be present at the Symposium this summer. He does his best to support our French breed!

I must admit it is a long day and doing over 800 kms in one day is a bit hard on all of us.BUT, it is important for the breed to be represented, and there are never many Barbets present for this mega event that the breed clubs are supposed to organize for their members to be there, as it says in the article.

As you can see, it's hard competing against such a homogenous breed as the Braque St Germain( honor to them!), but we're trying hard.Having short coats is an advantage (for them!)a major fault in the Barbet,rustic hunting dog, in France, who as the paternoster says.. should not be touched one week befor the show, so the coat forms long curly natural strands.

It could be for April fools, but it's not.It's not even a joke! envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 28/03/2012 @ 21:34

I am sure Jch would not believe his eyes seeing this 30 years later.

The straw that will break a barbet's back? the last minute scissor trim...

As it clearly says in French, by the self proclaimed creator and founding father of the Barbet, "I have often seen exhibitors brushing their Barbets during the show, waiting for the judgings.That completely throws the appreciation. Well, he wasn't wrong on that one. Turning our French Barbet into a Bichon is scandalous.

Pinch me if I am wrong, but the "latest" movement is to take our old French breed and improve on it. I guess that overgrooming it to hide the flaws is an improvement? Cross-cultural problem?
Showing the Barbet, a rustic breed par excellence as a sumo-wrestler who must not move, is an improvement on a breed?

I wish it were a joke, it is not even for an April fool.

He is a heavy and he is Bango's brother envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 28/03/2012 @ 09:02

Billabong du Pré de Rédy

A-hips, a typical Belgian(and French) Barbet type like Rose(below)!

Do you think anyone would have confused her with a shaved poodle or an overgroomed Bichon? Not on you life.This is a hunter!

For the little story:

Bango, who survived confirmation in his country of birth, by the skin of his coat, has the same ancestry as this Dude...Except this one inherited the Bouvier de Flandres* type which his little brother didn't, despite him being a little cutie with goldilocks.

As we all know(I thought most of us did?) how important genetic diversity is and how using as many males as possible( and not running 3 times to the same one in one year in the same country and wringing him dry) is ever so important in such a small French breed, we of course do, and it is so obvious, that any healthy male confirmed in the country of origin of the breed, must and will be used, regardless of bans by:, a new website just out on the web!Which is the reason why some have been so silent. They're working on this one!Aha!

* And yes, in Poodle litters, whippets have been born. No one ever says it, except Mrs Jeancourt Galignani, who did not have her tongue in her pocket, as the French expression goes, either.

That je ne sais quoi of Italian style that makes anything possible! envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 27/03/2012 @ 21:25



Ulysse di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco, one of the last true Barbets or Vieux Barbet Français and Manon Lescaut with Mrs Ezia Zagone from Italy; hopefully are going to give us some much needed diversity.

Toes, fingers, legs, arms crossed.
This was a wham bam thank you, mam affair, meaning they obviously liked each other.What more can one ask for?
