Helene Petre

Sad news has reached us, on 4th of March Helene Petre has died. She The Legend of our race. Mrs. Petre was the daughter of the last pre-war barbet breeder – dr. Vincenti  (Mas de la Chapelle). She was crucial (at for some time the only) person, whos effort led to revivial of our race after the war. Her kennel name was Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco. To this day, barbets in  “Barbochos” type, we consider to be exemplary and we do have one of those running around our house.

Meeting in Tronchy….the roots

Our holidays in France are also a great opportunity for interesting meetings. It is not a coincidence that our Tronchy is only 30 km away from Bage Le Chatel, where our GEORGIA was born. As to our tradition we have met Elaine Fichter (GEORGIA’s breeder) and Anne Keippila. We have one special family photo taken exactly at the same spot where our GEORGIA was born three years ago.
