Having both of our girls invited to compete in the inaugural Barbet showing at the Westminster Kennel Club was a dream come true. The results made us very proud as Solene, beautifully shown by our great friend Justin Smithey won Best of Breed. Solene's daughter Flynn, shown by Judy, was Select Bitch. Sincere thanks to the Westminster Kennel Club for putting on such a beautiful event outdoors at Lyndhurst Castle during the covid delays. With Bourbon's second Reserve Best in Show, these truly were the best of days.

We were so pleased this week to receive invitations from the 2021 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Both Solene and Flynn are among the top invited dogs, the only females and the only Barbet bred in the United States. We are so proud of them!
