On August 4th in France, there will be an International Symposium hosted by the Club du Barbet, Lagotto et autres Chiens de Eau (French Club) and the Société Centrale Canine (French Kennel Club). There will be discussions about the Barbet that will result in a revised Standard. In order to have discussion points, your questions are needed. Please send your questions to Symposium organizer Dr. Jean Loius Gessant and Club President Renée Rault submitted no later than April 30, 2012.
Make sure to:
- Include each question in French and English.
- Ask precise questions. For example, you may have questions about the “eye”. The current standard calls for “Eyes: Round, preferably dark brown. The rim of the eyelid is black or brown.” “Is dark brown the proper eye color for brown Barbet?” “What is the proper color rim of the eyelid for a fawn, sand, or piebald Barbet?”
- Send questions on or before April 30, 2012, to Symposium organizer Dr. Jean Loius Gessant and Club President Renée Rault.
