We tend to dwell on the top ten dogs here, but we are always happy to discover local talent. And so it has been so far in Falmouth MA this weekend at the Cranberry Cluster shows. On Thursday and Saturday, the country’s number one Irish Setter, Ch Beaubriar Premiere Event, picked up the BIS rosette. “Eloise” was bred by Elaine & Michelle DeChambeau & Paulette Peckol and is owned by Leon & Brenda Pierhal & Michelle & Elaine DeChambeau of West Bridgewater, MA.
Friday, a British import, the Wire Fox Terrier dog, Ch Tamedale Orinoco, got the nod. He was bred by Mr & Mrs Weal Bams and is owned by Norman Kenney & Lynda Kenney of Westford, MA, and handled by R C Carusi, a local boy from Oxford, MA. As the photos attest, both of these dogs are exceptional representatives of their breeds. In dogs, as in people, we may follow the exploits of the latest darling of the media, but there is often a prettier girl right in your neighborhood. So get out to your local show and marvel at the beauty in your own area.
