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.

To catch up on some relaxation and quality time with the dogs Bart and I took a long weekend off and went to the island Texel on the Dutch west coast. It was my first visit there so I was curious. The visit fulfilled all my expectations!  The lovely beaches and dunes were wonderful for the dogs to roam around in, and for us to enjoy long walks. We found a lovely B&B called De Heerlijkheid van Texel that was a small paradise! See photos at the end. I am quite sure we will come back soon!

Yatzie became a grandma last night! Beli (Ambeloui de l'Esprit de bonté) gave birth to 8 puppies - 4 girls and 4 boys. She lives with Irek and his family in Poland, see website! Well done sweet Beli! Yatzie is very proud of you and Moët admires her sister for this great contribution to the barbet population!

You just know it is gonna be a great day when these loving eyes meet yours in the morning!

Oscar, Yatzie's light blue puppy, lives in Utrecht with friends of ours! We had not seen him since the summer and what a sturdy young barbet he had become! Very loving and playful! He lives in a family with three young children, so he has a busy life! He does very well with the small kids, and enjoys their company. But most of all, this day, he enjoyed the walk with his mum and halfsister around the little lake Kleine Plass! 

We had  a lovely sunny weekend in Groningen, north Holland, where Jolie lives with her dog friend Fladder. Jolie is a very happy and sweet dog, and she totally recognised all of us!
