After many years of sharing our Barbet news and writing about the growth and development of our Barbet puppies we retired the blog at the end of 2020. All of the past entries remain posted so feel free to take a look around and scroll through previous posts to get a feel for the breed, our dogs and how we raise our litters. More information about the Barbet (French Water Dog) can be found on our website: www.northrockbarbets.com
This past weekend my good friend Nellemarie and I travelled to beautiful Baie Saint Paul to bring home a puppy who will join our Northrock family of Barbets. Barbevoix Oscar de Northrock. The joy on the faces of Nelle and her family when we brought him home made me so happy. Thank you so much to his breeder Catherine Verge for using Oscar's sire, Northrock's All Night Boogie for this breeding with her female, Barbevoix Spezia dit Holala. Catherine has done such an amazing job raising the litter and Oscar has an incredible temperament. He is well adjusted, gentle and happy. It was a very long drive home and he handled it exceptionally well.
We are thrilled. It was a great trip to Quebec and we are delighted to have made a new friend in Catherine. I'm already looking forward to the next time we will all be together again!
