Snowbear Great Pyrenees
"The classic head and expression to be looked for
in an outstanding brood bitch".
"My favorite bitch"
Hand written by Edith K. Smith on the back of this photograph.

Quibbletown was primarily founded on Cote de Neige lines and continued the Cote de Neige tradition of breeding Great Pyrenees that excelled in breed type. 

Marjorie Butcher of Cote de Neige fame was the mentor of Edie and Seaver and throughout their lifetimes remained their closest friend.

Seaver and Edie greatly respected Marjorie as a true "dog person" and held her in as high of regard as they did the many greats of dogdom whom they counted among their personal friends.

Ariette II was typical of the outstanding bitches produced by Marjorie Butcher.

High quality typey bitches were the foundation of both Cote de Neige and Quibbletown Great Pyrenees. 

This beautiful bitch, Ariette II, was the dam of two GPCA National Specialty Winners: 

Ch. Quibbletown Small Fry and

Ch. Quibbletown Easter Token 

Easter Token, born on Easter Sunday, was awarded Best of Breed at three Great Pyrenees Club of America National Specialties. 

Ariette herself was Best of Opposite Sex at the Great Pyrenees Club of America 1950 National Specialty.

Edie gave me this photo in 1983 and elaborated on the virtues and qualities that made CH. Cote de Neige Ariette II her "favorite bitch".
