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.

Moët had a small growth in her teat that the veterinary considered better to remove and check, because of where it was growing. It was a small operation but still had to be made under narcose. It all went very well and Moët was back home after a few hours. I stayed by het side lal the itme. The scar is very small but must heal now, and she is not allowed to run hard and swim at the moment. So we are having lazy and boring days... In a few days she can run happily again. And we are crossing our fingers that it is a benign growth.

Yatzie was my first dog ever. She totally captured my heart and after she came into my life everything changed for  me. I loved her so much I wanted a puppy from her. From Yatzie's first litter the first born puppy, a brown sweet girl that we called Moët, stayed with us. She was very different from Yatzie but a sweeter dog one could not imagine. Every morning, as I wake up, she still kisses my face from joy. Then Moët had puppies, and there was this fun, joyful, adventorous little puppy with a white sock on her left leg, Merveille. She became our third curly package of love, living in a guest family and seeing us regularly. I am such a blessed woman.

Today the Miracle puppies are turning 1 year old! They are such beauties and look a lot like their mother! 

A year ago

It is today 5 years ago that Yatzie had her very first litter. We have been so lucky to have Moët with us all this time and are today celebrating her 5 year birthday. A big Happy Birthday we also send out to all the other puppies from the Champagne litter - and we wish you all a great day filled with adventures and sweets!

Amaro, Moët's son, is growing up to be a very handsome guy! He loves to be in the company of the girls but even though he is quite a teenager he behaves very well around them. We spent some hours in the dunes together and had a very cosy time in the sand!
