Snowbear Great Pyrenees
Judge: Breed Founder Mary Crane
Handler: C. Seaver Smith
Working Group judge and Great Pyrenees breed founder Mary Crane told Seaver Smith as she awarded a Working Group 1st to Glacier, "It was hard to take my eyes off this dog".

Edie and Seaver considered Glacier to be a "Beautiful, balanced, moderate dog, with a lovely head and expression and powerful, effortless movement".

Glacier was a true "charismatic dog who loved to show".

Glacier was shown exactly 3 years.

His BIS record was a then breed record setting 10 All Breed Best-In-Show Awards.
Glacier's Show Record:
  • 56 Working Group 1st Awards
  • 21 Working Group 2nd Awards
  • 26 Working Group 3rd Awards
  • 14 Working Group 4th Awards
  • 10 All Breed Best-In Shows
  • 2 Great Pyrenees Club Of America National Specialty Best Of Breed Awards

Seaver recalled Glacier's 3 year show career covered approximately 146 total shows, and being "turned down" for Best Of Breed just 8 times in his career.

Quibbletown acquired and campaigned the Karolaska bred Glacier to present to Breed and Group judges an outstanding Great Pyrenees of proper breed type.


During this period very few Great Pyrenees were awarded Working Group placements and were contenders for top show honors.

Glacier was shown when the Working and the Herding Group were combined as a very large single 'Working Group".

Glacier's outstanding breed record setting career is testimony to his outstanding qualities.

Seaver and Edie acknowledged the invaluable assistance of Frankie Glover of Barqueill, whose outstanding grooming preparation contributed to Glacier's presence in the show ring.
