Barbet Puppy Photo Update

Our nine Carolina and Cinna puppies are nearly 4 weeks of age now. Time seems to go by far to quickly when you have Barbet pups to care for. Soon the pack will start to ween as well as explore outside of their whelping box. We can’t wait to take photos of them exploring the falling leaves.

A Barbet Boook: THE BARBET REVEALED. Getting under the curls of the ancient French water dog

To me, there is only one factual, non self promotional book, on the Barbet breed. The book is titled THE BARBET REVEALED. Getting under the curls of the ancient French water dog. You can order it from the Netherlands via their website. 

It is well worth it with gorgeous images of Barbet from around the world.

Welcome to the world Barbet Puppies

Carolina (CKC CH. Ginkgo de Cleo Carolina) x Cinna (CKC CH. Cinna Di Barbochos Reaiu De Prouvenco CM CGN CGC) welcomed 9 Barbet puppies into the world on Sunday August 23rd, 2015. There are 4 females and 5 males. Carolina is being a caring mom much like her mother Cleo was.

The puppies are marvelous. They are growing at a healthy rate and their eyes/ears will open soon. It is always a beautiful adventure in whelping and raising a litter of Barbet. All puppies are spoken for.

A week of Canadian Kennel Club Dog shows

Here are some fun photos from my week up in Canada. Thank you to Judy Preston who borrowed my camera and took some shots of us in the ring. I would have much preferred to be behind my camera, but it was great fun to learn handling tips from the ever so graceful, talented Amelia Ballak.

Until next time Canada!

Barbochos Rick’s aka Barbet Theo Earned his CKC Championship

Earlier this month, I headed up to Canada to partake in a series of CKC dog shows with my Biscay Water Dog family. The goal for summer 2015 was for Barbochos Rick’s aka Theo to earn his CKC championship.

Being This was Theo’s second time at shows, it took a little gumption to get this sweet, mellow 2 year old Barbet going. Once he learned the ropes, he earned several best of winners, best of opposites, and winners dog to earn his CKC championship.

Thank you Will who co-owns Theo with me,  Theo’s breeder, Jacques of Trois Rivières Barbet, and Biscay Water Dogs who own Theo’s sire as well as helped handle him.

Isis and George’s Barbet Puppies were born!

Isis x George’s six beautiful Barbet puppies were born May 17th, 2015 in the wee hours of the morning. There are two boys and 4 girls. Some have white markings on their chest emulating George’s coloring. We had thought there would be a few more as Isis’ belly was rather round, but these six were all born a healthy size.
