I had a really great time today at the WPKA show. A nice sized entry and good vendors made the show interesting for me. I was able to get this Barbet drawing from an 1881 French book of dog breeds. The caption reads "Dress (coat)of adirty white,orwhite and light brown. Shagand frieze massing in large flakes.Round head. Earsverylongcurly hairtopped withwhichcovers the eyes. Kidney (back) strong.Member (leg)stocky, coveredwith long hairs.Footround and wide. Nails thick." Very satisfying to see this old drawing demonstrating a broad head with short muzzle, stocky build and curly coat.
Additionally, the same bookseller had a fantastic unframed 1977 Richard Stone Reeves print of Forego that I was able to pick up.

On the way home, I stopped at Paris 66 and picked up a few macarons in very unusual flavors. Yum!
