A Very Historic Win!!
Yesterday, in Amiens, France, our very good friend Anne Plomp and Jr Ch Nuphar's Deep In A Dream won Best In Show at the International dog show under French breed specialists Mr J. J. Dupas (Breed and BIS) and Mr Goubie (Group). 'Lotus' is a litter sister to our Nessa, and she beat an entry of 2,550 dogs to win the very first Best In Show by a Barbet in Europe. That this win took place in France is really special. Huge congratulations are in order for Anne, Wouter, and Lotus as Lotus is from the first Barbet litter bred by Anne (Alba x Ooli) and these puppies are not yet two years old. Anne shows Lotus with an impeccable, natural presentation, and her happy attitude and correct structure brought a truly wonderful result!
For me, seeing the beautiful Alba almost 5 years ago showed me the direction I hoped to go in my Barbet breeding program. I am so happy for Anne that she produced such a lovely litter!
