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.

We got a summer greeting from Frits (Cherubiel, the dark blue boy) today and these lovely photos! His beautiful head has mama Yatzie's straight look! Rianne tells that he is a lovely, friendly dog that is loved by everyone and plays well with other dogs. Of course - it is a l'Esprit de bonté!

When Moët wakes up early and the goes to say good morning to everyone. If you are lucky she jumps up and stays in bed for a while! I can't imagine a nicer wake-up call! Bas loves it too!

There was a sports day at the nearby school and as Yatzie and Moët passed by all the children wanted to cuddle the cuddly dogs! Both of them enjoy the attention, even though Moët can be quite reluctant to start with. Yatzie never has any doubts about anyone!

Yatzie is crazy about cats. She has respect for them (she was once injured on her nose by one when she got too close) but if she gets a chance and if the cat starts running the inclination to hunt the cat takes over. We were recently visiting a neighbour whose cat was outside the kitchendoor window. Both dogs were totally excited by being able to stand nose to nose with the cat for a long time. The cat was just waiting to come inside to her friend Winnie.  But to keep the house in order I suggested we wait with letting the cat inside until Yatzie and Moët were safe on a leash!
