me, Claude Barbet with another Adventure for you…….
as you know I’ve been put with a bunch of Italians
who have done nothing for my standing in the house on
the hills canine community. However, as many of you already
know by now, there are now two of us!!! Better watch out
my large Italian friends
gives me great pleasure in introducing to you the young
and lovely – Anouk Barbet
yes it has an ego forming already. Typical female? Its
only bothered about its looks, I suppose it went on to
have a full frontal shot next, you know the type of thing
peeps….oh no…not that type – oh you
say I didn’t warn you peeps!!!
But don’t you think there’s a Star Wars ‘Ewok’
look about her??
don’t you dare tell her that I said that OK…………it’s
in all seriousness I am really pleased that there are
now two of us and moving in on Italian territory. Anouk
is ideal for this and well up to the task. Mischievous
of course she will go through the same training as I am
going through but not sure as to how far yet………time
will tell. Oui !!!!!
Of course not everybody is as excited as I am about the
prospect of us two now terrorizing the Spins – In
fact peeps when the sun comes out (Sun = big yellow blobby
thing in the sky that is seen on rare occasions) there
is always one!!
Viz…….he’s a very old boy now, but he’s
been there and done it. Respect to the Viz……..
there are others who just abuse the moment and take a
medium sized bone and find a quiet spot to chew away without
distraction……..but that bone represents a
‘ave a cunning plan!!
with Bone = challenge………mmmmmm now what
well let’s see what we can do to annoy the Spin
and get that Bone.
where is the sorcerer’s apprentice?
there and didn’t I tell you she had an ego and was
slightly eccentric and mischievous, well here’s
the proof – This is Unica trying to make friends
and isn’t it just so wonderful and warming to see
Anouk take the French approach to the Italians advances!!!!!
back to that bone…….
Spin is easily distracted if it thinks it’s missing
out on something and so Anouk and myself set about pretending
to have something they don’t and hopefully it will
do enough to create the distraction required to get that
are so stupid at times!!!
they’re arguing amongst themselves and Anouk is
doing a good job for me. Me thinks she is going to be
great asset as she matures and grows up. With the relative
skills I have naturally running through me I reckon it
won’t take me long to get her to be as devious as
Spins won’t know what’s hit them – oh
I can’t wait for her to grow up
to the Victor – The spoils
sacre bleu peeps – are we good or are we good?
peeps, I cannot for the life of me work out how this happened,
and to me!! Claude Barbet the devious, the brown and white
pimpernel of dogs.
know I said earlier I was hoping she would cut her teeth
on maximizing Spin annoyance but this really is too much.
She was NOT supposed to annoy me!! I mean me…..If
I knew what it meant, I would be exasperated!!
a cheek, but it does serve as warning to The Spins that
this lady is not to be messed with and how old is she?
Eeeeek…….frightening, and don’t they
grow up so quick!!
only been here a week or so!! Even I’m getting nervous
The Dearest One let the equivalent of the canine idiot
out to join us……
peeps – the English Springer. Le Loony!!
although a raving loony he does have his moments –
and this is one of them? This is ES doing his mime piece
of a lion on the prowl complete with head twisting and
great, we’re all just so impressed……………………………………..not
idiot needs certifying. He really is that stupid……..and
not part time either? This is how he spends his life unless
someone is unfortunate enough to throw or drop something.
He’s like a cartoon character then. Picks it up
and gives it you back. At warp speed
is a nightmare to walk round town with?
We could happily be walking down the street, me in super
pose mode and strutting my stuff when suddenly a human
drops a piece of litter, this idiot immediately leaps
on it and gives it them back.
they drop it in a rubbish bin, Oui…..you’ve
guessed it. He’s up their trying to retrieve it.
were in Aberaeron once with him, and sat on the harbour
wall watching the world go by. Well, they were as I was
being fussed and stroked by my adoring public, anyway,
a humanoid dropped a French fry, a chip I think you Englais
call it and that lunatic picked it up and gave it them
back. Oh what is he on?
I’ve digressed haven’t I?
speaking of strutting……
was out in the ménage strutting when that Italian
Crufts Winner came up to have a look at the opposition
– as you girls do!!
isn’t her bum big” “That dress just
looks ridiculous on her” “Oh mutton dressed
as lamb” “Far too much make up” and
on and on and on, you know the thing!!
every picture tells a story………
think those looks say it all and so does the ‘friendly’
banter between the two of them. Watch this space peeps,
this is going to get interesting. I think I now understanding
where the word ‘Bitchy’ came from!!
I could smile I would look like the proverbial Cheshire
a while or when the big yellow blobby thing disappeared
we all had to go in for munchies which is of course the
best way to get us in!! FOOD is a major attraction even
to the Belle Barbet – The one we know as Anouk
wanted to use these adventures to introduce her to you
all and I hope that you will enjoy hearing more about
her through my adventures.
These are MY Adventures and Anouk will be my assistant
throughout them, it would nice if you could embrace my
little French Belle as much as you’ve embraced me………
embrace me me me ……..oh sorry.
dinner we all went back out again for our usual constitutionals
and a last moment of mayhem and fun. Well, got to take
advantage of the light nights haven’t we?
then that night the “how the hell did she get that
bone off me” moment came back round to haunt me,
only this time with MY toy.
got religious for a moment and thought ‘Oh God please
don’t let me have to take on all the Spins and the
‘other’ Barbet all on my little lonesome’
well……she’s just a girl I suppose. Mustn’t
expect too much!!!!!
on that rather controversial note peeps its goodbye from
Claude Barbet and of course my leading little starlet
- Anouk Barbet
together peeps WE ARE – The Welsh French Barbets!!
care and Au revoir for now
