""Benson of Crombie" was bred in Ireland by the late Mr. W.J. Shannon, whose sudden death recently was a great shock to all who kenw him. Mr. Shannon did not show a great deal himself, but he bred such celebrities as "Ch. Carswell Courteous", "Courtesy of Crombie", "Drumgannon Dynamite", "Benetta", and "Erin's Pride". "Benson", funnily enough, was rated too big by Irish judges, but he was purchased by Professor Turton Price, and afterwards sailed to Mrs. Geraldine Dodge's kennel in the States, where he did much to maintain the reputation of the imported Pointer, for his best of winners at the Westminster, and his many best all-breeds successes, made his name a household word wherever Pointer lore was told. When Mr. J.A. Carbery awarded him one of his C.C.'s on this side, at Edinburgh in 1930, the bitch ticket winner was a lemon and white, "Primrose O'Kilner", which went through her classes for Mr. W. Grayson, and was afterwards to gain the prefix and sail for the Argentine." -- Lola Macdonald Daly, The Pointer as a Show Dog
