Yesterday we took Alba for an ultrasound. As expected Alba is pregnant! It was good to see the embryos on the screen, they looked well developed. We hope the second half of Alba’s gestation goes well and we are looking forward to a beautiful litter being born around December 27th.

It’s been more then a week since we returned from France, where Alba and Lotus have been shown during the Nationale d’Elevage (French Specialty Clubshow). The breed and the show was judged by mister Jean Jacques Dupas, a well-known judge who is seen as breedspecialist.
Lotus gained Best Junior in Breed with a beautiful report. However, it was Alba who stole the limelight – almost literally- by going Best Of Breed, which makes her the holder of the Georgii Challenge Trophy for a year, and rounding off the day by going Best In Specialty Show!
It’s been quite some time since a Barbet won BISS during the French Nationale d’Elevage, an achievement we are really proud off.

Now that we have had the first show of 2013, for Lotus this time, I have updated her page. Her showresults and reports are all updated.
We get pictures from the puppies regularly, which we add to their own photo albums on Facebook. For the links, see their personal pages. We enjoy hearing about their lives. We have seen most of the pups again several times which is great. All are developing well. Now they are 8 months old they have more or less reached their adult hight and we are pleased all of them are a nice size, not too big. Both the boys and the girls are on the small side of the standard. Nice, easy sizes and all have nice proportions. Gangly puppies of course, as per their age.
Because we are very pleased with this litter up to now, we hope to breed a second litter with Alba. She recovered well from this first litter, she was a good mum and she enjoyed her puppies.
If all goes according to plan and all the ‘if’s and but’s’ go right, we hope to mate Alba next autumn. The A to H-pups will be almost 1,5 years old then.
The search for a second Mr. Perfect is still on.
