The weather has been absolutely gorgeous lately and today the whole family went for a woods walk to one of our favourite parks. I have not been very good at remembering that I've got a camera on my phone but today I remembered and snaped a few shots. Enjoy the photos.
And here is a short video of Sophie from our walk....

The day of our booster, Saturday saw the largest entry to date of Barbets for a dog show in Ontario at 15 Barbets! Coco took Winner’s Female and it was a thrill to be able to strut our stuff in the ring with all the specials! It was such an incredible feeling to see so many of our beloved breed gathered together. You can read more about the weekend on our Club website at www.barbetclub.ca
Coco did well on Sunday and was awarded Best of Winners under Japanese judge Mrs. Sumiko Ikeda for a 3 point major so that was very nice!

Another highlight of the weekend was that Michel Raymond and his Barbet Chocovan were featured in the Toronto Star Toronto Star on Sunday March 11th which also gave our breed some good publicity. All in all it was an awsome weekend and we are all looking forward to our next big gathering in August for the National Specialty.
