The European Dog Show is in Belgium this weekend. For anybody interested in seeing what’s what they have released the official programme online. It’s very smart, very professionally done and with some seriously expensive advertising. A guide to all the breeds exhibiting is also in it. Glen of Imaal Terriers are on Sunday, ring 35 in Hall 6 and there is a fine looking DOCKED Glen illustrating what we look like…..if only.
Online entries for Belfast Championship Show close today. Terrier Day is Saturday 24th September and the judge for Glen of Imaal Terriers is Cathy Delmar. Darlington also finally closes today, Glens are being judged by Max King
Group placings galore for Glen of Imaal Terriers with a Group 1 and 3, yes 3 in 3 different countries, Group 4s plus a Best Puppy In Show! Glens also accounted for an Open Show Group 4 as well. Is this the breed’s most successful weekend ever? The Group 1 was annexed by Abberann Torcan in America and the 3s by his brother Phelan in Ireland, another US placing by Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore and Finland saw Gleann Elite Ellie take the third. Best Puppy was also Stateside with Kilkenny’s Midleton of Irish Spirit.
It was at Anderson KC where Torcan triumphed, Tioga County KC for Daulton’s Wild Night of Galore, Clonmel for Abberann Phelan (Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore Best Opposite) and Heinola All Breed had Glenrosedale Buagh Ri Arthur Milo taking Best Opposite to Gleann Elite Ellie. Kilkenny’s Midleton of Irish Spirit besides the BPIS also took a Puppy Group 2 and it was Pembroke Dog Show (Wales) that saw Kingcottage Boogie on Basil take the Open Show Group placement.
In Estonia 3 Best of Breeds were awarded to Gleann Eager Edgar and at Kouvola Glenrosedale Buagh Ri Arthur Milo took BOB. The German Winners Show at Leipzig saw a double double with BOB going to Fire & Ice Liberty, BOS to Fire & Ice Moonraker and the two Junior Winners to McJakes Aivy and Mcjakes Ayle. At Olympic Kennel Club Keadeen’s Second Star to the Right took Best of Breed with Keadeens Blue Boy for Bluesette Best Opposite.
Welsh Kennel Club saw a new Champion with Pajantick Star Trooper taking the all important 3rd CC and Best of Breed. Best Bitch was awarded to Romainville Fade To Grey with the two Reserves being Golden Spur and Romainville Maggie May. Best Puppy was new kid on the block Wickholm Breaking Dawn very ably handled by young Emily Sage. Best Veteran was awarded to Donvaleset Rebus
Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas added another string to the bow with a CA (coursing aptitude) award
What a weekend, what a breed!!
The Kennel Club Journal for August has been online for ages but I forgot to put it on here. Thanks for the reminder!
Mike Vickers has had 6 eight week old Lakeland Terrier puppies stolen, he lives in Burnley Lancashire, but by now they could be anywhere. If you are out and about anywhere and are offered “a puppy” ask yourself if it could be one of these? Are you on any internet forums that are a little away from the mainstream? Please share this there. They need to be found!
They way everybody helped in spreading the word made them too hot to handle and the Lakies are home!!!
Dodger & Gypsy. Let’s support them showing what Glens can do!!
Dodger and Gypsy are doing a very special charity walk in Belfast for the Pedigree Paws Unite fundraiser. They are hoping to raise £150 or more for these lovely charities and to promote Glens!
Every dog breed in the UK is set to go on a walk like no other – the equivalent of hiking six marathons.
During September 12-18th 2016, dog owners, breeders, judges and dog show exhibitors will take part in the ground-breaking Pedigree Paws Unite (PPU) event – a serie…s of sponsored walks totalling 160 miles. This September, the Pedigree Paws Unite event, aims to raise awareness and promote every recognised pedigree dog breed in the UK.
All 216 Kennel Club (UK) recognised breeds will be taking part in the event – from Chihuahuas to Irish Wolfhounds and Cocker Spaniels to St Bernards – each walking a minimum of five miles.
The huge event in September is the brainchild of Crufts 2013 Best in Show winning handler and owner, Gavin Robertson. Gavin and his Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen, “Jilly” won the biggest prize in dogs in March 2013. As a result of the pair’s win, he organised Jilly’s Jolly Jaunt, a sponsored walk from Birmingham to London in summer ‘13 which raised £49,000. During this 130 mile walk, Gavin and Jilly were joined by friends including breeds of dog which are classed by the Kennel Club as vulnerable and high profile.
Held under the umbrella of The Peekaboo Trust – the aim is to raise £70,000 for seven charities – Make A Wish Foundation, Childrens Hospital, National Search and Rescue Dog Association, Dog AID, The Cinnamon Trust, PACT and Tŷ Hafan.
Most people will be sitting down to read this and it’s a good job; Manchester schedules are now available!
They are obviously in the spirit of the Olympics and wanting to be first……with the longest notification of a show. Manchester Championship Dog Show starts on the 17th January 2017 and that is Terrier day. Glen of Imaal Terriers are to be judged by Patsy Hollings. Entries close 7th December but there will be a reminder then
