All in here is upside down! We make up rules in how breeders shall breed but we don't know the facts behind the breed, his heritage and his today's actual status. Shouldn't we first get to know the breed and then discuss how to best support and guide around him? It is quite obvious that most people do not know about the mess created around this breed and which kept on going and growing for many years because responsible in a organized dog world did not bother do their job, to check their sources, to study and learn about the breed in which we discuss. Still to this very day Breed Clubs do not explain nor mediate about his divided history which they are a big part of and probably the main reason to why they choose to totally ignore it. What is left of the old type can't afford to be disregarded much longer because it will be totally lost in our ignorance to face facts and in crosses of whatever. A organized dog world seems uninterested to care, study and learn and even less to take responsibility. We have been offered help by experts in how to manage this most complicated situation - but most breeders were not interested to invest in a breed we don't know much about but which still can produce cute pups for good money. Stupidity can't help a breed but knowledge and education can! Is it time for a Barbet World to open the door to balance and invite reality?

The Different Ages of the Barbet It is very sad when breed clubs are not responsible/feel no responsibility for the information they are fed/ and give out because they do very little, if any ,research themselves. Then the snowball effect sets in and the general public is misinformed, too. Not a new concept… The dog above is NOT a Barbet but a Spanish Water dog and it even, incredible but true, looks the same today.

Dog biscuits made with chicken broth from GuyGuy's chicken..rind from the “saucisson de Lyon”..and some very nice horsemeat steaks. A souvenir of when I used to come to France and my Mom gave me her wallet to go to the Boucherie chevaline..I even tasted the steak and rather enjoyed it.They certainly did!

En del människor tycks med ensamrätt äga ett slags allomfattande elittänk. Vissa individer säger sig veta bäst och därmed basta!Spelar ingen roll om det är en välrenommerad genetiker eller en helt vanlig hundägare som läst på och som vill diskutera fakta som är vederlagda genom insamlad data. Dessa ”elittänkare” saknar all ödmjukhet för att aktivt lyssna och föra en dialog. De vet redan allt…genom egen placering som höghet säger de sig ha hört massor genom åren. Jo, det kan jag mycket väl förstå, men jag inser också att det är stor skillnad på det vi hör och det vi med all säkerhet vet. Liksom det är mellan det vi faktiskt har och det vi allra helst önskar oss. Att få dessa elittänkare att argumentera för sina ståndpunkt finns inte ens på kartan. Då vänder de ryggen till och beger sig tyckande tillbaks till egna led i dess trygga vrår. Tystnad råder och dumhet fortgår.Inte lite så oroväckande i dessa vilsna tider där också landet vårt irrar utan ledning och riktning. Någon skrev att 2018 blev året då världen och dess system började spricka sönder. Jag är på samma spår som skribenten som nedtecknade dessa ord i meningens innehåll och tillägger att det omfattar också den organiserade hundvärlden som började krackelera i sina redan slitna fogar.Alla vill bestämma men få vill ta ansvar. Samarbete för god utveckling och delad kunskap låter utmärkt på papper men fungerar desto sämre i praktiken. Fakta tycks spela en allt mindre roll och där någons tyckande får dominera och som dessutom ska vägleda oss framåt. Ja, nog är världen i spinn alltid. Jag undrar vad 2019 kommer att bjuda oss att lägga till en redan komplex rashistorik om ett år från nu? Om vi fortsätter att blunda för halva vår verklighet och väljer att bortse från fakta då blir det också omöjligt att hitta god balans i arbetet framåt. Åren går och skutan har varken roder eller segel och navigatören saknar fortfarande en vägvisande karta. Svårt att säga något alls om var vi slutligen hamnar. Jag och hundarna mina lunkar vidare i det lilla och möter intresserat och tacksamt det lärande som möter oss på vår vardagliga väg framåt. Mac är trots ålder och värkande leder fortfarande på hugget men behöver bemötas med större hänsyn och respekt av sina yngre och större mer burdusa kollegor. Koi är osäker men framfusig och behöver ständigt påminnas om alla sociala spelregler för sina nära mindre men också andra gelikar. Neo Mahler är trygg i sina bästa unga men vilda yviga år och behöver lära mer av både sans och impulskontroll. Jag blir till limmet som ska hålla oss enat samman och för mig är utmaningen att andas djupt och sakta för att behålla såväl lugn som tålamod i vårt dagliga lärande och samspel. Ett ständigt pågående projekt i att tackla svårigheter av olika grad och slag men som också bjuder oss gemensam glädje och gynnsam utveckling. God fortsättning på det nya året i alla dess utmaningar och möjligheter!

It is becoming extremely difficult to have a litter. Like the Titanice avoiding icebergs. Reasons are not the obvious ones..there is more and more demand, but “just” for a barbet ( small b, so generic furry dog) and not for anything specific..People are not informed and are not really willing to go in depth when researching and asking breeders intelligent questions. You live with a dog for 12/13/14? years and when you buy it, it's yours. Barbet re-creation ( Barbet Moderne) is based on a myth and lies, covered by governing instances, like Napoleon being French and having a Poodle/Barbet..which he was not and did not…Breeders are not real transparent as to how and why they do what they do. It's, of course, not to make money, is it. So, when you have seen the people who want a dog “just” like yours and you find out the got a Poodle-type, then a big sigh of relief sets in.You did not waste your time.. You have the ones who “just” want a pet and ad un tratto they decide that it would be nice to have a litter..and mate a 5th generation “Old breed” with a Poodle -cross, for proximity, and because the not very responsible stud..owner thought it would be socute and nice to get a few $$$. Then you get the ones who swear up and down they ..”this” and they “that”. They know it all..there is only one Barbet stuff..there are many…If they tell you that, then that IS a clue that they ARE lying.Red Alert! We have a big joker breeder here in France, well more than one, but I am referring to the one who lied about paternity of her litter(s), not once, not twice, but maybe even 3 times..is still claiming to be the big great breeder she is ( after having been given a big Barbet kennel name) made a mockery of the breed, und so weiter und so weiter..We did forget to mention she was so cute and so nice, like everyone on social networks. DNA has spoken and left quite a few disappointed people who thought their dog was a gift to the world..and it just lost 1/2 of its pedigree..responsible breeders..have nothing to say and lay low. I do my best to not promote my litters on social networks, since many are real trashcans to dump misleading information on and…”just” sell( place dogs as one says more elegantly) dogs. Not a safe place to travel to, in this very unsafe world of ours. The meeting pages/forum?( redefined) are run by very unprofessional people looking for fame, at least and running pages like dictators…of course to hide their incompetence. So, in a nutshell..the Barbet is not safe anywhere, really ..and having a litter is a lot of work when you think of what some do to the breed and its future. I will have one again, in due time, beteween Froggy and Iabada, since the last one was really really nice and all the dogs I am in touch with, make me proud of my work for the OLD BREED or VIEUX BARBET. Happy New year….

2018..the year when hypocrisy, false paternity declarations, no club for the “orphan” breed and the French Kennel club laying low…none of it being their problem. Their reason for being? ..that everyone get along and not make waves. Many wish that the SCC or French cynology would appreciate more the value of “old blood” as breeds, bloodlines or part of bloodlines and protect that and make that more important as weight than hierarchic and bureaucratic procedures. That not all responsability should be thrown blindly on the table of breed clubs, but that preservation of old breeds should always be taken first and its concern should be on a higher rank than administrative procedures. Breed clubs have to be checked, if they are still functional, so for the breed and not for the personalities and personal honours. If people outside clubs complain about the clubs, something should be done about it by analyzing what's going on, without nasty friendship politics. If a population under one name developed over the decades into 2 different, and not (or only very little) related breeds, belonging to different breed groups, and intentionally never meant to belong to the same breed, then a separation in the pedigree book is most wishful.( asked for years and years ago!) For each one some kind of commission can be formed, in order to adjust the correct standard for each of them. It would be logical when the population, not bred according the standard of the original breed, should be nominated to be recognized as a new breed, under a separate name. This is the best chance to avoid unnecessary and endless quarrels. After some time for each of them the commissions can develop into a breed club for each of one. Pr Denis said the same words years ago, and was ignored, by the SCC. Their main interest is not breed preservation or we'd know it. Some figures to ponder: 17 300 000 clicks on Google for the Labradoodle 4 870 000 clicks for the Barbet ” Moderne” 333 000 clicks for thr Vieux Barbet. Shows rapidly which is rarest and most threatened. Barbet Moderne is fine and not more than a pedigreed Labradoodle.

Najtrudniejszy czas przed nami- rozstanie. Nasze maluchy z radością bawią się wspólnie, często pod czujnym okiem mamy i babci. Najwięcej dokazują z Tolą, a wujek Hans z bezpiecznej odległości kontroluje sytuację 🙂 Wszystkie pięknie wyrosły, apetyt im dopisuje. W szóstym tygodniu były szczepione i chipowane. W siódmym tygodniu przywitaliśmy Panią sędzinę na przeglądzie miotu. Pozostał jeszcze ósmy tydzień i drugie szczepienie, i kochane maleństwa są gotowe przywitać nowe rodziny. W galerii umieszczone są zdjęcia wykonane w siódmym tygodniu.
