Blog about Barbet Yatzie & Moët

My life with the French waterdogs Yatzie born 2007 and her daughter Moët born 2011. Barbets are purebred, active, relaxed and allergy friendly dogs with a soft and loving spirit. I am Swedish but live with my dogs in Holland. I hope you will enjoy the blog! Enlarge the photos by clicking on them.

I have never seen a puppy behaving like Yeye does in the water! Look at this crazy funny little thing!

New forests are always exciting for the dogs! This weekend we visited an area near Apeldoorn where the dogs totally enjoyed their freedom and ran around like crazy for half an hour. Here they are waiting for the go-signal! See the perfectly hooked tails that Yatzie and Moët have.

Yeye is very energetic! She runs aorund and plays all day long. But if you are lucky you can catch her for a short cuddle, like Bas here!

Yeyezel came to stay with us in the weekend! Everyone enjoyed it so much - Yatzie the most! They play so sweetly together still. Saturday morning all the dogs came along to the hockey field, where Yatzie and Yeye enjoyed a tug-of-war. All three dogs were tumbling around, stealing the attention of all the hockey kids!

Today was the first hot summers day here in Holland and Yatzie and Moët celebrated with a nice tandem swim to cool off!

Luna (Red Angel) keeps a good distance to the impressive cows laying so peacefully on the grass. 

Yatzie, Moët and I have a favourite place for walks. You have seen it before on the blog - by the lovely waters in Vianen. When the sun is shining and the wind does not blow too hard we get in the car and head direction east. It is not far from where we live but after an hour there you feel so renewed. Most of the time you meet the beautiful Fjordhorses or the long-haird cows. Fouls and calfs were recently born. Today the three fouls found the grass on the side of the beach more tasty than that which growing more plenty on the field. Yatzie and Moët love Vianen because there are so many rabbit holes to investigate! You can spot the two in action behind the fouls if you look well on the photo below. Then a refreshing dip and hopsigay again gone following a track to some muddy place!

It is cosier together!
