Sorry for just putting links. I will translate the French text to English. The point being here also that NO ONE in France ever supported any of the protagonists of the old breed. (Vieux Barbet)Protagonists being Mrs Pêtre, Mr Geogii and Mr Seguela. So, if there are very few Barbets in France and hardly no litters, ours is not to reason why. To this date, I have never seen any type of support from anyone in France.
People blindly believe storiettes written from this one above and they spread and spread with no real sources and only the heresay of the breeders who promote it and they are around.
