Lynn is a NICU Nurse Practitioner. Other than brushing Barbet, her life is full of wild bird feeding, caring for her greenhouse, amazing sewing and art quilting projects, home design and decor, and pretty much anything else Martha Stewart does—only better.

Leslie is a designer/photographer. Between brushing Barbet and her old Lab, she finds time to bike (preferably in foreign countries), reupholster questionable furniture, and remodel/redesign her home and those of her friends. She spends an ungodly amount of time driving between Vermont and Wisconsin.

Although we both have had dogs all our lives, Leslie was bitten by the showing/breeding bug earlier, and has been involved with Sporting breeds, mainly Springers, for nearly 40 years. But it was Lynn who first discovered the Barbet and after two years of waiting she was finally able to bring one into her home. We were both smitten and now you see what happened.


​We are members of Barbet Club of America, United Barbet Club, and Club Barbet Canada.
