So much fun to watch these beautiful pups all day.

The red, yellow, and white collars are boys. Blue, pink, green, and purple are the girls.

Solene's Dutch Pups

Yesterday Solene gave birth to her beautiful Thibault puppies. She has 3 boys (2 black, 1 brown) and 4 girls (3 black, 1 brown) and they are doing great! Solene is the product of a frozen semen breeding and so are her new pups. Frozen semen allows us to utilize different bloodlines while keeping our moms safe at home. We are thrilled with the size and vitality of these pretty pups, and are so grateful to Anne Plomp and Marian Vos for making Thibault available to us, especially to Marian for making everything happen so quickly when Solene came into season earlier than expected! We are looking forward to the growth of these promising puppies.

Fia Wins Her Rally Title

I could not be more proud of the Tena Family and their devotion to their Barbet, Fia. Every member of this family has played a part in Fia's training. This weekend they went to their second ever Rally trial, where Fia won first place in each of her classes and completed her Rally Novice title. Fia is not yet a year old. She has a big future in performance events!

Our Second Spring Litter!

Our wonderful Claire was confirmed pregnant today and our second spring litter is on the way! More than likely, these two litters of Solene and Claire will be our only 2016 breedings. We are very excited to welcome Claire's pups. This litter is Pascal's first and Claire's last. Puppies due April 7.
