Dorothy Vetrone Weaver

June 14, 1934 - November 6, 2011

Dorothy Vetrone-Weaver passed away on November 6th 2011. Dorothy, together

with her first husband Charles or “Chuck” as he was called prior to his death in the

late 70’s, began showing Briards in the mid sixties and they had wonderful success

both in the ring and with their breeding program under the “Charlemagne” prefix.

They were an integral part of the Dog Show community throughout the Midwest

and New England. Dorothy and Chuck were widely known and admired, starting

their dog show involvement exhibiting AKC/CKC Ch. Phydeaux Quelques, “Charlie”.

Charlie (always owner handled) was Dorothy’s pride and joy. Together Dorothy and

Chuck guided Charlie’s career resulting in such honors as being a Briard Hall

of Fame member -one of the first Briards to Win the old Working Group (before the

split off of the Herding Group). Additionally he was 1971’s #1 Briard, won the

breed at the Garden in 1972 and produced 7 champions including a Registry of Merit

bitch. Charlie also played the role of “Horrid” in the Canton Little Theatre

production of Camelot, much to the delight of both the audience and Dorothy! She

married again, but her life-long devotion to Pure-Bred dogs and in particular the

Briard was her greatest joy. Dorothy made many families find that the love of a

Charlemagne Briard was something not to be without. Upon her death she left three

Briards: “Tank”, “ Willow” and “Bailey” plus so very many friends whose hearts are

filled with wonderful memories of a great lady. She was a long-time member of the

Agathon Kennel Club, the Michigan-Ohio Briard Club, and the Briard Club of

America. She will be greatly missed.
