History

As the name suggests, the Blue Picardy Spaniel is a native of Picardy, a region of northern France. It is the result of the crosses made at the end of the 20th century between the Picardo Spaniel (in a gray coat speckled with brown spots, that appeared around the year 1000 during the Crusades and are very ancient cousins ​​of the French Spaniel) and the English SetterBlue Belton” (with a black and white coat, of Spanish origin and imported to England in the Middle Ages).

More precisely, These crosses were possible thanks to the arrival at Mischief and at the mouth of the Sum of many English hunters who came to board their hunting dogs, after the drastic quarantines introduced in your country. The two races mixed at that time, the initial goal was probably to end up with a dog with a longer gait than the Blue Picardy Spaniel, but also faster and with a better sense of smell.

At the beginning, the Picardy Spaniel and the Blue Picardy Spaniel they considered the same race, despite their different coats. The club of l’Epagneul Bleu de Picardie It was founded in 1907, but it wasn't until 1938 which was finally officially recognized as a distinct breed by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI). Past year, The club of l’Epagneul Bleu de Picardie had merged with the Club l’Epagneul Picardie, founded for its part on 1921.

In 1980, The club of l’Epagneul de Pont-Audemer merged in turn, and the whole took the name of Club de l’Epagneul Picardie, du Bleu de Picardie and l’Epagneul Pont-Audemer. In 2015, the association changes its name and is renamed Club des Epagneuls de Picardie et de Pont-Audemer (CEPPA).

Several specimens were exported to Canada around 1987, and the Canadian Kennel Club in turn recognizes the breed in 1995. El American United Kennel Club (UKC) did the same the following year, at the same time as the Picardy Spaniel. On the other hand, the American Kennel Club (AKC), the other American reference organization, has not yet taken the step.

The Blue Picardy Spaniel, what is it called in english, It is also recognized by the American Association of Rare Breeds (ARBA), and this is not a coincidence: in fact, remains unknown in most of the world, and its acquisition is mainly in France, more particularly in his native region.

History

The true origin of the Japanese Chin It is still controversial, Although a general consensus, concludes that originated in Spaniela.

These dogs were brought to Japan around year 732. Some maintain the ancestors of these dogs first arrived to Japan around the year 732, as a gift from royalty Korea, while others argue that Japanese Chin copies were offered as a gift to the Empress of Japan in the middle of the sixth century, other theories say that they arrived in Japan in the year 1000.

But beyond all the controversy regarding the origin, all agree on one thing, the Japanese Chin, is an authentic “Japanese”, because it reflects the Japanese sensitivity to detail.

The Japanese established various breeds of dogs, with a defined purpose that was work, that Japan considered something different, different from a “dog“, He was considered a work on farm animal, for hunting, to care for cattle, etc., but the Japanese Spaniel, It was something very special because it was strictly considered a companion dog.

His appearance and distinctive personality was quickly captured the hearts of the Japanese and that led to ownership of these dogs to be limited to persons of Royal and noble blood.

As a result, every noble House was raising its own standard, why there are many variations of the Japanese Spaniel, in terms of size, the density of the layer, the eyes, the personalidad…

Once the race was introduced in the West, a strong desire of the people by the smaller copies (those who weighed a maximum 4,5 Kg.), He carried that size was the most popular and became the official standard of various canine clubs around the world.

Professor Ludvic Von Schulmuth studied canine origins from a find of skeletal remains of dogs found in human settlements dating back to the eighth Millennium BC, in the Gobi desert. On the basis of the information collected, he created a genealogical tree of Tibetan dogs which gathered very interesting information concerning the origin of certain breeds that are today very popular.

The Gobi Desert is a large desert region between Spaniela northern and southern Mongolia. Can be one of the deserts, or desert areas largest and most important worldwide. Around it the Altai Mountains and the steppes of Mongolia in the North, Tibet Plateau and the northern plains of the southwest Spaniela. The word gobi means ' desert’ in Mongolian.

Occupying the 30% of the national territory, great Gobi Mongolia covers capricious montes, sandy dunes, vast plateaus, steppes with its aromatic herbs and, Since then, a varied animal world, within the canine ancestors found Professor Ludvic Von Schulmuth.

Ludvic von Schulmuth defined as origin of certain dog breeds a former denizen dog of the Gobi desert, whose remains were found in places where stored manure or litter, and called them “Gobi Desert Kitchen Midden Dog”, This animal came several lines which were giving rise to several breeds. For example, a small dog of soft hair and drooping ears that was the ancestor of Tibetan Spaniel, the Japanese Chin and Pekingese. Another branch which descends from the “Gobi Desert Kitchen Midden Dog ” gave rise to the Papillon and to the Chihuahua long-haired. Y, another branch of the same dog of the Gobi desert, gave rise to the emergence of the Pug and Shih Tzu.

There is also some documentation that indicates Portuguese sailors introduced the breed to Europe in the century 17 through the gift of some to Catherine of Braganza, Queen Consort of King Charles II of England, but there is more evidence that the first Japanese Spaniel which opened steps behind borders, It was a gift of the Emperor of Japan offered a U.S. Navy officer, Matthew C. Perry, When he visited East in 1853 to open bilateral trade. The naval officer, a litter seven Japanese took Spaniel, and to reach their land only survived two, and who gave them is something that is still not known with certainty.

The Eurasian need about two hours of exercise a day. Your urge to move can be ideally satisfied by jogging, cycling the agility. Monotonous catch-up games like the one in “look for sticks” quickly bore this clever animal.

Eurasian care

Despite the dense undercoat, the care of the coat of the Eurasian it is not complicated and is limited to brushing once a week only during the change of coat, must be combed daily. The tongue of the Eurasier ranges from pink to an infinite number of varieties from pied blue to pure blue.
