CH Frankly Scarlet de la Serve de la Chapelle d’Alexandre X CH Chmurnik z Gorki Podduchownej CGN
Our beautiful girl Frankie will be having her second litter of Barbet puppies and has been bred to a very special stud in our hearts….our very own Chmurnik. The combination of these two wonderful Barbets has been greatly anticipated by us since we’ve owned them both and finally it is becoming a reality. With this breeding we hope to produce beautiful healthy puppies with uber friendly temperaments that will be great show prospects with natural working ability, and most of all wonderful family companions. This breeding took place in March and puppies are expected in about a week and a half (early May).
CH FRANKLY SCARLET DE LA SERVE DE LA CHAPELLE D’ALEXANDRE (born February 17, 2010) is a maroon brown colour with a wavy coat that is quite manageable. Height 22″ / 56cm. Weight 56 ½lbs / 28kg. CERF – eyes tested NORMAL. OFA hips (A/C) & elbows tested NORMAL (0/0). She is CKC and AKC FSS registered with a 3 generation FCI pedigree.
Frankly Scarlet (aka Frankie) was imported from Bage le Chatel, France in July 2010 and bred by Elaine Fichter (de la Serve de la Chapelle d’Alexandre). Her dam is Ermengarda (IT) and sire is Booly Wooly de la Serve de la Chapelle d’Alexandre (FR). Frankie is one of ten puppies. Her dam Coccolina (aka Ermengarda) has the highest quotation of any Barbet in Europe on the CSC grid selection: 5/6.
Our Frankie is a CKC Canadian Champion. She is a very friendly goofy girl who loves children, other animals, is full of personality and is our biggest girl in the house! She is being trained for her Working Certificate title and is obsessed with birds. When she isn’t chasing birds she claims her favourite spot on the couch!
Frankie had her first litter of 8 puppies in November 2012 (our D litter) whom we travelled to Dutch stud Cousteau for in the Netherlands from kennel Von der Leibrucke. She was an amazing mother and was gracefully gentle with her puppies. We call her the ‘puppy lover’ whether it’s her litter or one of our other girls, she dreams of playtime with the little ones.
CH CHMURNIK Z GORKI PODDUCHOWNEJ CGN (born November 28, 2008) is a solid black colour with a curly coat that can cord (we’ve actually got his tail corded 23cm long now, love it & are going for floor length). Height 23 ½” / 59cm. Weight 61 ½lbs / 27.9kg. CERF – eyes tested NORMAL. OFA hips tested EXCELLENT (A/A), elbows tested NORMAL (0/0), heart tested NORMAL & thyroid tested NORMAL. He is DNA profiled with the AKC. Chmurnik is CKC, UKC & AKC FSS registered with a 3 generation pedigree. He is five star health rated (hips/elbows/eyes/heart/thyroid) and registered with the Canine Health Information Center (CHIC).
Chmurnik was imported from Pabiance, Poland in March 2009 and bred by Piotr Piotrowski. Born to dam Ottavia (IT) and sire Borealii Choco-Pop (FI), whom are both 1st place hunting champions and also conformation champions. Chmurnik is one of eight puppies and the third litter ever born in Poland!
Our Chmurnik is a CKC Canadian Champion and a Canine Good Neighbour. He is a confident outgoing male who loves all people and children. Chmurnik is quite the father figure who loves to be around the puppies and has helped raise all of our litters. He loves to fetch, has natural instinct & working ability and is a capable retriever on both land and water. His son Obie from his first litter with Satine already has his Working Certificate title. Chmurnik is currently being trained for his Working Certificate and we hope to have him titled this fall.
Chmurnik is the father to 3 Barbet litters; in October 2010 he had 8 puppies with Satine (our A litter); in September 2011 he had 8 puppies with Daphne (our B litter which was also our litter with the first fawn male & sand female in North America); and in April 2013 he had 5 puppies with Sophie (Northrock’s B litter). All his puppies are healthy, happy and have grown up to be outstanding Barbet.
Our breedings are limited as we only have one or sometimes two litters a year. This will be our second litter for 2014 and we will not have another litter until 2015. We breed with the goal of producing puppies with natural hunting and working ability. Our Frankie X Chmurnik litter will be our Nappyroots ‘G’ litter and puppies are expected early May. Puppies for companionship, hunting, show prospects and agility/obedience.
