“Rarest Breed”

I guess many will have seen the recent headlines in the newspapers & television: Glens are rarer than Giant Pandas and there are less than a thousand in the world! Remember Freddie Starr ate my Hamster as a headline in the Sun a few years ago? The recent Glen headlines are as truthful as that one was; in other words huge journalistic licence. There are more Glen of Imaal Terriers around in the world than there have ever been and that is certainly more than a thousand.

  1. Does it really matter that much that they got the total of one thousand wrong, afteral everyone goes on about promoting the breed, so this type of publicity must be good. I have had so many people ask me about our Glen since the newspaper report and the recent report on Countryfile and am proud to let people know about the breed 🙂
