Wonderful World of Briards
Owned by Mary McEneany

We said goodbye to Beo a few weeks before the COVID-19 pandemic really hit the U.S.  I am grateful I was able to be with him when he left this world.  My final words to my beloved boy were; "I will always love you".  And I will.  

Beo began a journey I couldn't even have imagined.  A journey that has been both wonderful and challenging, filled with highs and lows and a great deal of learning - both personally and in the show ring.  Through it all, he remained a model briard; calm, fearless, wary of strangers but confident, loving and independent. Everyone who met him, fell in love with him. I have been offered money for him more than once and a few people have said they would leave the house with him once my back was turned.  I understand completely how they feel.  

Beo  travelled extensively in the US and Canada and been shown to multiple championships.  All that work  paid off with a wonderful, bidable dog. Many people say they have a preference for the tawny briard but frankly, while I agree tawny's are cute, there is nothing as dignified and majestic as a black briard.  Beo is a natural eared dog, meaning we did not crop his ears early on.  The ears are a bit of a preference but I prefer the natural ear over the crop.  

Anyone who has ever owned a Briard understands the concept of a "heart" dog - that one dog that has completely captured your heart, your love and your devotion.  And while I love all my dogs, it is Beo who  was my dog soulmate. 

To have known Beo is to know the Briard.
