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.
