A long love story
Then one day in 2009, I saw my first French water dog. In addition, I am taught that he is a dog of remarkable qualities. Love at first sight, I needed one!
The following year, I met Lyne Trudel from Courailee, a conscientious breeder, from whom I adopted my first hen CH Courailee Fidji, daughter of CH Castagna and CH Conga Opus un in O major. It was the start of a great adventure!
In 2014, I adopted a second hen, CH Treebeard’s Jewel Barbetdeau (Julia), daughter of GCH Treebeard’s Galapagos Girl and CH Courailee Echo. This time, I picked her up from Janet Black Evans of Treebeard’s, another equally conscientious breeder.
Since that time, Fiji and Julia have had and still have several goatees.
Together, the three of us will have been the founding members of Barbetdeau breeding.
