Honoring Barbara Stubbs — 1929-2018

Barbara StubbsThe BFCSD’s 2019 Speciality Shows are dedicated to Barbara Stubbs who was instrumental in having the Bichon Frise recognized by the AKC and in the formation of the Bichon Frise Club of America and the Bichon Frise Club of San Diego. Barbara’s kennel name was Chaminade and her contributions to the breed were influential. Two of note were Chaminade Mr. Beau Monde “Christopher” and Chaminade Le Blanc Chamour “Beemer”.

The Bichon Frise Club of San Diego is collecting “memories” that Bichon Fanciers may wish to share and that have a connection to Barbara. Please consider sharing your personal tribute to Barbara by taking a page in our show catalog. You can share photos or personal sentiments with us and we will construct a page for your review and approval. We would like to present this “special edition” of the show catalog to Barbara’s family. Call Deb at 858-531-2890 or email her to discuss options for including your tribute.
