Apologies for my liberal use of the Latin language. Of course I know that Canis Majoris is a constellation of stars in our skies of which Sirius (Alpha Canis Majoris) is the brightest one. Today’s photo is rather about yesterday’s Exposició Monogràfica Ca de Bestiar in Felanitx and a different star, a canine superstar at that. The dog with the owner labelled no. 25 is a bitch who was crowned the Best of the Best, the Champion of Cans de Pastor Mallorquí, the Campeó Ca de Bestiar 2011. Her name is Auba de Can Parreta (* 2007) and the proud owner’s name is Antoni Vives Ramis. Auba de Can Parreta was also declared the winner in this year’s bitches category. The two runner-up champions overall were both male dogs, Dolç de Can Nyegos (no. 22) and Al·lot de Lluçànes (no. 18).
Auba de Can Parreta is a real superstar as she has already won virtually everything there could be won over the years, here in Mallorca. She also came best in the bitches category in 2008 and best young dog in 2007.
The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: September 25, 2011. The time was 13:04:59.
Well, we came to Felanitx on Sunday in order to see the Bestiars but couldn’t find them! Chris Googled the place on their website and we drove around the outskirts of the town to no avail. Pity.
Anyway we enjoyed the market and a coffee in the main square and then the broccante market when it opened.
Best wishes, Sylvia
that really is a pity. the dog show was held at the parc municipal sa torre. who is to blame? google, the ajuntament or the very bestiar dog club? i must admit that it was not really sign-posted at all. and not very many people attended, nor all that many dogs. a great shame in every sense.
best wishes, klaus
