This was our Madzia’s last litter (CH Satine Biscay’s Precious Pearl CGN WC with FCC CH, CAN CH Barbugaulois Daragon) and we could not have been more delighted with this breeding. A big thank you to Dougy’s breeder Michel Raymond and owners Sylvie Marlow and Bobby Souchereau for helping us make this special breeding happen.

Look forward to the future for the best things are yet to come! Hope you all enjoyed your day with some extra squeezes from your families and some good bones to chew on. Love Nana & Papa

Where in the world is….

Over the last few months you may have noticed there have not been many blog posts on our website and that’s due to a 6 month Sabbitical, that we took to get many projects done around our house and in our lives.

A Sabbatical is a rest from work, or a break, often lasting from 2 months to a year (and in our case we took a rest from updating this blog), so we could achieve a handful of goals.

Other then a few birthday posts, we left off with our G litter pups (from our Frankie X Chmurnik litter) who were preparing to go to their new homes back in the beginning of July. You will remember this was a whooping litter of 10 puppies and all were registered with G litter names. So in birth order…

    Geppetto (brown male) – tan collar – lives with the Kennedy family (USA).
    Gidget (brown female) – burgundy collar – lives with Lisa & Lise (USA).
    Guantanamera (brown female) – grey collar – lives with Keith (our pick puppy).
    Gryphon (black male) – brown collar – lives with the Barnes family.
    Gilligan (brown male) – black collar – lives with the Llechu family (USA).
    Gabriola (brown female with white paw) – pink collar – lives with the Landry family.
    Galina (black female) – red collar – lives with the Komenda family (USA).
    Goldilocks (brown female) – orange collar – lives with the Bash family (USA).
    Grandmaster Flash (black male) – blue collar – lives with the Carscadden/Cotter family.
    Gouda (black female) – yellow collar – lives with the Larmar family.

And to remember these little ones while they were here with us and this very special litter, we have put together this photo montage from the day they were born to nine weeks old…

Since we had our two litters last year fairly close to each other, one in January (Madzia X Dougy) and the other in May (Frankie X Chmurnik), this became our deciding factor to take the Sabbatical and get back to the core of our lives.

Our first project was building and tending to our first vegetable garden in our Elmira home. Which has been a dream of mine for the last five years. This required building a 3 foot picket fence as without one it’s darn near impossible to keep our dogs out of the veggies.

Next we took on two big restorations on our home. One being repointing our 9 foot wide chimney that was disintegrating and the other was to have a life-time steel roof put on our home. This meant having workers at the house for a couple of weeks and supervising the dogs at all times.

Our last project for around the home was building a 4 foot picket fence for our puppy area since we have seen hawks flying in the neighbourhood. This is an area where the pups will be able to play and romp around safely and we will have peace of mind they’re not getting into too much trouble or playing their ‘catch me if you can’ game in the middle of the night. They’ll still get full use of our fenced 2 acres on beautiful days.

Then in the fall we finally made the full switch to feeding our dogs raw. Everyone transitioned over successfully. There’s no turning back now and we even make our own food. Check out our new Raw Fed Barbet page.

Nearing the end of our Sabbatical, I went on a two week trip to Tofino, BC and Seattle to relax and get back to my roots. I spent most of my first week with my great friend Kate Cram (whom owns Wild Poppy Bistro & Old Town Bakery) and who is also the owner of two of our Nappyroots Barbet pups Cooey (Edith) and Fresh Prince (Henri) who are actually both Madzia’s puppies from our C and F litter. Kate and I hiked in the rain forest with the dogs on boardwalks, walked along the beaches and threw sticks into the ocean for Henri, enjoyed an authentic seafood boil right on the beach beside my B & B (we even used ocean water to boil our crab, YUMMY) and then back at her place made a big batch of raw dog food together. It was a great time shared by both of us and I could not have a greater friend on the island. This was actually the highlight of my trip :)

All the while Chris was preparing for his huge life change and left his job as an arial lift mechanic. He has taken on his life’s passion of photography full-time and teaching composition & global workshops through North of 49 Photography.

With the changing of the leaves we are back in full swing. We’ve started competing at confirmation shows again and planning our new Barbet adventures for the 2015 year. Our Sabbatical will give us enormous long-term benefits and we will look forward to doing it again in 7 years :D

First Nappyroots female to get a CKC Championship title

Our now, CH Nappyroots Dirty Harriet (aka Danger), is our first female Nappyroots puppy to achieve her CKC Championship title this past December at the Elora Gorge Kennel Club shows. She proved all, to do fantastic, winning 3 Best of Opposite Sex (BOS) over 5 CKC conformation shows. Personally handled all three days by her poppa, Chris Pepper….both were very proud of their big achievement. She could not have looked better in her full rustic coat, at 6.5ins or 16cm, with just a brush and wash before the show, so she could be shown in her full curly do :D Two of her BOS placements were given to her by FCI judges from Sweden, Mr. Bo Skalin and Mrs. Natalja Skalin (pictured below), where Danger got her championship at non other then the Barbet Fanciers Association of Ontario’s Speciality. Her third BOS was given to her by judge Barbara Arndt, from Ontario, Canada. I give a big shout out to Danger’s owner Keith Harasymiw, who came out all three days to watch his girl strut her stuff in the show ring!!! Speaking of Keith our prayers our with you as you go in for your kidney transplant this Wednesday! Dude you are in good hands ;)


This past Friday (November 28) we had more birthdays to celebrate….we did not forget about you ;) It was our big guys special day and Chmurnik turned 6 years old! We are so thankful for his great health and his contribution to the breed, he has fathered four litters of healthy and happy puppies. He celebrated his big day with lots of cuddles and a special birthday dinner of raw meaty bones. Here is the handsome fellow when he was just 1 year old….

It was also a special day for our ‘D’ litter puppies, our Frankly Scarlet X Cousteau litter, which Chris and Frankie travelled all the way to the Netherlands for this breeding. These guys are now 2 years old! Happy Birthday goes out to: Dali, Danger, Wembley, Cali, Daisy, Riley, Sadie and Zuzia!!! We hope you all had a wonderful day with your families :D I still remember when you were just this little.

Our first litter turns 4 years old

Happy Birthday to our first litter of Barbet puppies, our A litter, whom turn 4 years old today! Hip Hip Hooray! Happy BIG Birthday to Louis, Obie, Brie, Alouette, Roscoe, Koda, Josie, and Ruby :D Here’s to many more years of great health and lots of happiness with your human families! Louis pictured below was here a week ago enjoying a few days with us and getting back to his roots with his Barbet family.

It’s crazy to think that our first litter is already turning 4 when it seems like it was just the other day that we were preparing for these amazing pups to join us. This special litter belongs to our CH Satine Biscay’s Precious Pearl CGN WC and CH Chmurnik z Gorki Podduchownej CGN.

Happy Birthday ‘B’ litter

Our 2nd litter of Barbet puppies turns 3 years old today! This litter of eight amazing little ones (well not so little anymore) was born to CH Nelum-Himalis Daphne CGN and CH Chmurnik z Gorki Podduchownej CGN on September 1, 2011. They have brought a lot of life and happiness to their families lives and anyone that has had the special privilege to spend time with them. We are oh so proud that with our love and dedication we could make this litter happen ;) HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Beanie, Bodhi, Roo, Brogan, Hugo, Reba, Angus and Bilko!!! Smooches to all of you on your special day :D

Barbet puppies gun training

Our Nappyroots G litter (Frankie X Chmurnik) is 7 weeks old and Chris has been doing gun training with them for about 2 1/2 weeks now. When he first started he was at the back of the yard and now is just beneath their feet. Everyone is doing well and just the odd flinch here or there but all bounce back within seconds. We have been doing this gun training since our first litter and not only does it prepare them for future retrieving but also any sound socialization. All our pups go home accepting loud noises! Today we introduced a duck wing to the pups and our litter was quite interested….orange collared and pink collared girls took flight with the wing :)

Barbet at work

With our litter of puppies at home, one of us is always here and while the puppies nap each day we spent a great deal of time building a vegetable garden. With five adult Barbet living at the house and the occasional visitor we had to build a reinforced fence around where we were planning to plant the vegetables especially since some of the dogs enjoy the sporadic dig or the occasional carrot ;) We decided to put some 4×4 posts into the ground so we could make our first picket fence. For this Chris borrowed a skid steer from his work and a lawn roller which the dogs were quite interested in. Since we like to think we have a good sense of humour around these parts Chris started a ‘Barbet at work’ portfolio. Enjoy these awesome HDR photos and see if you can find all the Barbet ;)

Barbet puppy photos from the great outdoors

Here is the latest batch of puppy photos from the great outdoors. The Frankie and Chmurnik puppies are now five weeks old and are going to be spending as much time as possible outside in the beautiful weather we’ve been having…as long as it’s not too hot for them of course.

Momma Frankie also gets in a lunch break for the little ones.
