Sunny Champagne litter meeting

Saturday four of the six Dutch puppies from Yatzie's Champagne litter came to visit us for the first time all together: Charley (Henriot), Fenna (Elyssia), Hunter (Chandon) och Teddie (Ayala). And Moët of course! The sun that had not been around for days shone on us the whole day and we had a wonderful day. The puppies played constantly for five-six hours. No grumbeling, no fights what so ever. They only took a time out to eat Margot's appreciated dog birthday cake as we were singing for Yatzie for her 5-year birthday. Moët had already started eating from it, jumping up on the table. Fortunately someone saw her before it was all gone...

I and Yatzie demonstrated the popular dog sport Rally obedience and the puppies got to try a track of 20 stations. We then drove to a nearby lake where the dogs could run freely and do some water work. Yatzie became the hero when she did a very far out retreive of a dummy that was floating away with the wind. Thanks Yatzie - Martijn who volunteered to get it ;-) did not need to get himself wet! Towards the end we tried to make a group picture but gave up - it was easier handling the ten small puppies than these few excited half grown up ones! The males were already higher than Yatzie and the size of the bitches differed a little. The fur vary a bit on all of them, some wavy, some curly. But they all have that open and friendly character that is the trade mark of our beloved race Barbet! Videos will be added later on.

Great chaos trying to arrange a group photo, despite Yatzie role modelling perfectly.
