Happy Birthday, Barbet Claire!
Today we are celebrating Claire's 3rd birthday! She and her 11 brothers and sisters have accomplished wonderful things and brought a lot of enjoyment to their lucky owners! Claire has changed a lot of things in our lives, and she continues to bring happiness to us every day with her wonderful, devoted personality.
In her first 3 years, Claire has earned show championships in 3 different registries (CKC, UKC and IABCA) and earned the first and only Best In Show awarded to a Barbet in the UKC. She won the breed from the classes at the Purina National, and finished 2011 as a Top 5 bitch in Canada in extremely limited showing. She was a wonderful mother to her special puppies, bred via frozen semen from Switzerland. Because of Claire, we have new friends all over Europe and North America who share our love of the breed.
Happy day, Clairissa!!
