The biggest pup in the Jack/Marie litter was none other than MBPIG MBPIB MBB GCH Northrock’s Noble Spirit. Later, around the farm it was to earn her the nickname of Bodacious Bonnie. She is very much like her dam Marie always up for an adventure and is eager to please.

Slow to get into the conformation show ring due to Covid 19 we finally made our way to the first summer Conformation Show of 2021 in the beginning of July at the Champlain Dog Show where Bonnie went “Best of Opposite” earning her a 3 point major, “Best Puppy in Breed” and later “Best Puppy in Group.” A fabulous start to her show career.

She barely skipped a beat after that show achieving her CKC Championship at the Cornwall District Kennel Club dog show at the beginning of September 2021. Pointed towards her Grand Championship that weekend, she achieved her Grand Championship mid October at the United Kennel Club dog show in Saint-Lazare, QC. It was a real pleasure to show Bonnie amongst such outstanding competition.

Along this exciting journey Bonnie achieved Multiple Best Puppy in Breed, Multiple Best Puppy in Group and Multiple Best of Breed wins. Bonnie will finish her show career for 2021 as Number 6 Barbet in Canada and Number 2 female Barbet in Canada and all having been Owner/Breeder handled.

A prolific swimmer, Bonnie is in our pond at every opportunity. It is a joy to see her confidently and effortlessly swim back and forth working at picking leaves or twigs off the surface to bring to shore. She and her sister Pinkie are a perfect tag team flushing and chasing critters at the pond’s edge.

She has a watchful and keen eye for birds and is often seen pointing as she gazes across the fields. Like her sister and mother she has a very active nose and uses it to track fresh scent on her early morning walks. We are looking forward to experimenting with and perhaps training for some field trials in 2022.
