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 went to Malmö to celebrate Moët and my common birthday. An hour before the big party Bart and I took the dogs to the dog area on the beach where they could run freely. And freely they ran, and Moët who is the wilder and most courageous of the two dogs, and with a woollier fur more easily attracting twigs and such,  came out of a bush totally full of big thistles. They had gotten totally twisted into her fur, so bad. Bart and I spent at least half an hour together trying to free her of them...  

On the beach we met a Black Russian Terrier, a breed I had never seen before that has some similarities to the barbet when it comes to fur and build. Wikipedia says: it is believed that about twenty breeds were used in its development, including the Airedale, the Giant Schnauzer, the Rottweiler, the Newfoundland, the Caucasian Ovtcharka and the now extinct Moscow Water Dog.

Celebration times! It is three years ago that Yatzie's Champagne litter was born - and our sweet Moët was the first one out! How many fun days with happy memories that we have had together already! Moët you see a lot here on the blog, so instead I present her sister Ambeloui, in Poland. A beautiful wavy barbet with a rustic look! Happy 3-year birthday to all the bubbles around the world!

Yeyezel, our bitch from Yatzie's last litter (living with our guest family), came to stay for some days. She is a very energetic little girl, that still has not learned to relax like her mother always does! Moët and Yeye play nice together, though after a while Moët wants to stop but Yeye just goes on forever!
