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.

A wonderful fall day we met up with Moët's 3 daughters Vera (from Denmark), Merveille and Lizzie, and of course grandma Yatzie en halfsis Luna was there too. It was an amazing day and the dogs were like in Paradise it seemed! Thanks Karin Barth for the lovely photos! 

Today we had our first reunion for all nests together. 10 barbets came from east and west, with our very special guest Beli from Poland! We had a wonderful walk in the Soesterduinen, in full sun and the dogs and everyone was as happy as can be! Afterwards we had a nice lunch together in a restaurant and shared about what our dogs mean to us. It was a very special feeling for me to see all these barbets together and realize that it is all because of Yatzie that they are here, spreading the spirit of goodness, loving kindness and gentleness thoughout the world! Thank you everybody who came to join us today:

Champagnes: Ayala (Teddie), Ambeloui (Beli), Henriot (Charley), Moët
Angels: Hanael (Luna), Nahaliel (Hugo), Angel
Miracles: Amaro, Esperanza (Lizzie)

We all said let us try to arrange this once a year! 

What a joy - Yatzie's daughter (Moët's sister) Ambeloui aka Beli from Poland came to visit us today, to be part of the reunion of our kennel, together with her owners Marzena and Agata. We had not seen her for 5 years! She has had two nests during this time at the Kennel Splendeur Dorée Barbets. We already knew she was a beautiful barbet, but now we could see her with our own eyes! 

Yatzie and Moët were very curious about her, and the three girls spent a lot of time during the resunion to get to know each other. Who is she this girl, Yatzie and Moët seemed to ask themselves? She seems so familliar but why is she not submissive to us like all other dogs :-) ? 

Merveille is a cutie don't you think?

This lovely fall morning we were playing fetch as the sun was rising. Is there a better way to start your day than with your dogs playing happily  around you?
