Ren Best Puppy at Barbet Fanciers Specialty Show!

Congratulations to Leslie Woodward, Lynn Vogt-Kinsey, Mary McEneany & Michele DeTour for their BPISS win at the Barbet Fanciers of Ontario specialty show last weekend. Ren is beautifully prepared and shown by Leslie. She is from our Nessa-Murdoch litter and is already halfway to her Canadian championship! We are really proud of this puppy consistently winning in large entries.

Practicing with my Barbet Junior Handler

Fia is one of our puppies from this spring's Claire x Thunus litter and her 11 year old owner, Kate, has been working very hard learning how to handle her for conformation competition. We've been meeting up at South Park, and Kate works with her own puppy as well as Solene. It's a lot easier for Kate to concentrate on learning when working with a settled, mature dog. This helps her understand what Fia needs to be able to eventually do. For now, we are happy with a little less attention from Fia and are having fun. Kate is a model student!

A Good Day at the Post Office!

Our mail today delivered two exciting certificates: 
Marlee's Canadian Kennel Club Grand Championship and Miffy's Invitation to compete at Westminster Kennel Club 2016. Marlee is the very first American bred Barbet to win a Grand Championship in Canada and Miff is the first natural tail Spinone to win a Grand Championship. We are super proud of our girls!

Spinone Miffy and our Barbet Pups

We have had an unbelievable week of weather, with temperatures in the mid 70's. How I wish this was our usual November weather. The dogs have really enjoyed being outside so much. Today Spinone Miffy came for a bit of grooming and time to play with our dogs. Lots of fun seeing them together!
