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.

This weekend we had special visitors - my parents came over from Sweden. We enjoyed nice walks with the dogs, and visited a typical Dutch pancakehouse where my parents tried the delicious Dutch pride "poffertjes" - minipancakes!

Here they are, our three girls: grandma Yatzie left, her daughter Moët (right) and Moët's daughter Merveille in the middle!

Today we are celebrating again - our darling Yatzie turns 10 years old! She is the most loving and loyal friend one can have and we are expecting to be able to enjoy her company for many more years! Today she got her favourite piece of meat, and soon we will take a long sunny, walk together with her daughter Moët! Happy Birthday dearest Yatzie, mother of 20, grandmother of 41 barbets!

This weekend Bart turned 50 and we threw a Surprise Party for him at the stunning castle of Brasschaat north of Antwerpen! All guests came dressed up in Black Tie - the dogs as well, though in the white version! The dogs partied with us through the night, dancing and eating just like we did! But they were the only guests that fell asleep under the tables!
