Double the Barbet Fun

This spring, we're going to be doing something we've never done before--having two litters simultaneously! Claire was to have her final litter last fall, but with the passing of my father, I just wasn't up to it.

In 2015, we planned to breed Nessa, who is almost 3, to Gr Ch Ex Flacon d'Paris of Neigenuveaux CGC for her first litter; and to wrap up Claire's career as a mom with an exciting breeding with Stacy Able's Ch Quaciendas Thunus Georgii. As girls often do, Claire, Ness, and Solene all came into season within 10 days of each other. Timing and other events dictate that both girls were bred in February, and we are now pleased to announce that both girls are safely in whelp and due in the next few weeks. Nessa is due first, around March 31, and Claire is due one week later (April 6).

I drove Nessa to Ontario, where she spent several days with Flo Erwin for multiple breedings with Murdoch. My sister Jan took Claire to Virginia and met with Georgii's family for one quick breeding while she was dropping off her Spinone with her handler. I'm happy that Jan and Nancy, dog breeding novices, were able to successfully supervise the lovely couple.

So, we'll be home for puppy fun in April and May, and ready to hit the shows later this summer!

Someone is going to be very, very busy! I can hardly wait to see pictures. Do they even make enough colors of puppy collars for that many pups all at once? I was just looking at Teddy's baby pics and remembering what a sweet little cutie he was! Now he's a sweet, big cutie....with a little cutie underneath all that fur!

Yes, I have two different color sets of Pupcolors collars. We will need good identification since both litters should be only black pups!
