Alba the Model Barbet

This beautiful dog, doing her best imitation of the Club Barbet Canada National Specialty logo, is Ch Quaciendas Alba Aqua-Aura. She is the mother of our Nessa, and she is one of the best quality Barbet in the world. Bred by the Quaciendas Kennel in The Netherlands, she is owned by Anne Plomp and Wouter Lemmen. We are so grateful that they shared Alba's lookalike puppy, Nessa, with us.

Simple Pleasures

American Barbet Puppy

Late summer is a wonderful time for the dogs. The temperatures have cooled, and the pace is less busy. I really enjoy taking 3 or 4 of the dogs out for a walk through the fields each day and watching them run, play, and explore. Our newest Barbet puppy, Nessa, enjoys this chance to check out her new American environment. She races up and down the hills, plows through the grasses, and watches the hawks that often fly overhead. Here she stops to smell the flowers :)

We are so proud of Solene...she finished her UKC Championship in just one weekend of shows by placing four times in the Gun Dog Group. She is only 8 months old, and we really look forward to her future with us. We are very pleased with her pretty head, moderate size, and nice angulation.
