GLEN OF IMAAL TERRIER

PD (1)

1 Harley’s Abberham Running Down A Dream. Very promising young man. Medium sizes as asked for and excellent strength and substance throughout for his age. Good head, eye and expression. Pleasing depth of chest, well sprung ribs and well developed hindquarters with a good bend of stifle. Once he got into his stride moved well with a positive ground covering action, BP.

OD (3)

1 Hannington’s Boudivella Oscar. Thought him very typical throughout. Best of heads with excellent strength of foreface. Strong muscular neck set in well placed shoulders, pleasing front, good bone and the best of feet. Firm body, good width of chest and correct topline and tailset. Powerful quarters that he used to advantage on the move. Good harsh cost, moved well fore and aft, CC & BOB.

2 Alstead’s Ch Golden Spurs. Another very impressive example of the breed. Good size with lovely bone and substance. Typical in head, good strength of jaw and a pleasing eye and expression. Excellent depth of chest, big ribs and a firm backline. Well rounded hindquarters with a good bend of stifle. Best of coats, pleasing ground covering action on the move, Res.CC.

VB (1)

1 Harley’s Ch Donvaleset Brier. Very well made bitch, good shape with a very typical outlook. Well off for strength and substance throughout. Pleasing head, neat well set ears and a good eye and expression. Good body shape, firm topline and well made quarters. Positive mover, BV.

PB (1)

1 Hope’s Borderglens Rose. Very much a baby but of overall good make and shape. Good head and eye. Pleasing depth of chest for her age, nice spring of rib and well rounded hindquarters. In good coat. Was a little unsteady on the move but once she got into her stride moved well.

JB (3)

1 Forbes’ Jeonty Dreams A Dream With Karensbrae. Lovely young bitch who took your eye as soon as she entered the ring. Very well made throughout. Feminine outlook but has excellent strength and substance for her age. Good head, lovely eye and expression. Best of fronts standing on good legs and feet, well developed body and a good tailset and carriage. Moved soundly on a free and easy stride. Coat could be a tad harsher but on the day could not be denied top honours, CC.

2 Martell’s Jeonty Letty Be Magic. Another I liked a lot. See she is the litter sister of the winner and has many of her siblings qualities, just need to develop in body to complete the picture. Good make and shape. Pleasing head with good strength and a very typical outlook. Strong neck set in well placed shoulders, correct topline and well developed quarters for her age. Sound on the move.

3 Borderglens Rose.

LB (2)

1 Hannington’s Boudivella Tegan. Excellent strength and substance but still keeps a feminine outlook. Good head shape, strong jaw, big teeth and the best of expressions. Well made front assembly, good depth of chest and well sprung ribs. Nicely rounded hindquarters with a good bend of stifle. Harsh coat and very positive on the move.

2 James & O’Brien’s Amhard Jessie Jay. Well made bitch who was close up to the winner. Good strength in head with a pleasing eye and expression. Muscular neck and a pleasing layback of shoulder. Firm body and topline that she kept on the move. Well muscled quarters. On the move could not match the winners attitude and verve.

OB (1)

1 Alstead’s Ch Sigrid Helga At Pantcottage. Very good bitch who was in excellent form on the day. Excellent strength and substance and has a very typical outlook. Good head shape, neat well set ears and the best of expressions. Lovely bone and feet, well developed body and nicely angulated hindquarters. Had her in my mind for top honours but in the final run off in the challenge was not as fluent as the young bitch and had to pay the price, Res CC.

Catching up with A LOT!

Holy Macaroni, Glen of Imaal Terriers have been doing us all so proud over the last couple of weeks it’s hard to know where to start!

Canada can take the honours this week as it is a very rare breed there in the showring so Groups are the thing for competition. Gleann Holy Hannah took a Gp1 and Gp4 United Kennel Club and Group 2 x2 at Moncton. Abberann Derbla 2 X Gp3 at Credit Valley Kennel Club plus Gp4 Georgina KC. Staying on that Continent and Gleann Damn Daisy, holidaying there from Finland, is getting seriously noticed with a GP3 at Central Florida KC, GP4 at Jacksonville Dog Fanciers plus BOB at the 2nd show, 2 BOBs at Treasure Coast KC of Florida, BOB Seminole Dog Fanciers Association plus GP2 at Seminole’s second show, Greater Ocala Dog Club was another BOB. BOS at Jacksonville was a new name to the blog, Long Lake Pharms Angus Fuller. Welcome to showing Glens and love your kennel name. Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock was BOB Space Coast Kennel Club of Palm Bay and the second Greater Ocala.

Leaving Florida and going to Pennsylvania Ber-D-Mar Sweet William O’Shea was BOB Greater Philadelphia Dog Fanciers Association & both Kennel Club of Philadelphia. Tipperary American Girl took BOB Penn Treaty KC. Heading north and west Kilkenny’s Across The Universe to Setanta, Gp4 at Pontiac KC & Greater Muskegon KC, BOB at Grand Rapids KC, Dayton KC, Lima KC with Abberann Lament for Owen Roe picking up GP4 at Kalamazoo KC and Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore OHG4 at Pontiac KC and Grand Rapids. Daulton’s Gedunk Malone from Emerald Isle picked up the last BOB of the weekend from Ohio

Northern Europe and Gleann Una Noonan has to do the lead in. Best Opposite at the Norwegian Winners as well as BOS at Jyvaskyla (Day 2) she was Best veteran in Breed day one and then took Best Veteran in Show out of over 70 veterans competing for the honour! Gleann Bigwig was BOB at the Norwegian Winners to her and Gleann Indico Indy at Jyvaskyla. Day 1 of that show saw Gleann Cotton Cody & Gleann Dear Dandelion taking the top honours. To Norway again and Rosears Master of The House was BOB Nordic Winners with BOS Pearytail Bonnie B Goode. Vaxjo (Sweden) was a BOB for Rosears Master of The House with Rosears Nugget of Gold Best Bitch. Flipping to the Danish Winners and Cairdiulacht Diarmuid MacMiolmor took Best and BOS was Rosears Nugget of Gold. Gleann Kooky Kanye was BOB at Lempäälä Puppy Show with Best Opposite Sex to Meomodo Dancing Angel. Two Best of Breeds in Germany for My Dear Fellow Calimero The Angel and in Rotterdam Amhard Manhattan took Best of Breed and his Dutch Junior Championship. Belgium to finish off and Boudivella Osca took BOB at both the Euro Dog Show & Benelux with Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage taking Best Opposite at both.

Said it had been a serious bit of breed promotion and it isn’t done yet. The “brains” department was also flying the flag. Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae passed her Silver Good Citizens and “Poppy” (need a name) in America also took her Good Citizens and earned 90 out of 100 in Rally Advanced. Keadeen’s Blue Boy for Bluesette qualified RATCHX7 which makes him the highest qualified barn Hunting Glen in the USA. Daulton’s Captain Jack of Roseglen took his BCAT title to show how incredibly diverse Glens are as a breed.

All over the world Glen of Imaal Terrier folk regularly give their time to promote the breed at many exhibitions and events. The National Pet Show was held recently and Alfie, Basil, Gil, Inga and Murfi showed everybody just what a Glen is. It’s also great when breed owners decide to get together “just for fun” as happened recently with the New Jersey Fall Glen Gathering.

All of us are wowed with your dedication and talent to show the breed in so many places!

Until November 19th…..

There won’t be any updates, news, gossip, suggestions, information, catching up, ideas, shares or anything new in the Glen of Imaal Terrier world on here until November 19th.

Don’t forget us though and we’ll (hopefully) have a huge catch up then. Wherever you are exhibiting, trialling or just doing Glen things have a great time and remember to pass along how it all went…..oh yes and Christmas presents for Glen of Imaal Terrier lovers are still needed!

International Breed Buddies

Thank you all for the interest in the “Breed Buddy” idea last week. It’s always good to know that ideas are well received-this one was incredibly-but we’re putting out a further idea. This blog is part of the worldwide Glen of Imaal Terrier community and it was great that non UK folk put their names forward. Thing is though the EFG website, however well thought of, just won’t be on the radar of somebody in say, the Netherlands when looking Glen information. So why not  put the idea of “breed buddies” forward to the Clubs and Associations in your own country? The idea should work wherever you are based and the majority of Clubs have a website or newsletter. See what you can do in 2019….Breed Buddies here to help you, will translate to any language.

Christmas present number 3

This is certainly something for a Glen of Imaal Terrier owner and it doesn’t have to be just for Christmas. Have a look at Yappy and you can even change the colour of the Glen; got a wheaten, got a brindle, it doesn’t matter as each gift can be personalised. Even the name can be included. There are over 250 breeds there so even none Glen dog owners should be able to find something-just change the breed.
