The first of the year…..

Okay, it was last year but the news hasn’t come through until this; the “first” Group placing of the year for the Glen of Imaal Terrier is in….Malta. Not a country instantly associated with the breed But a Romainville went out a while ago and is steadily getting noticed.

Another country that isn’t thought of as “Glenned” is Spain and that is where the rather handsome tailed bitch on the front of the EFG website resides. There have been questions about her, particularly in light of the tailed Glen being used to illustrate the Kennel Club breed standard, and IF her tail hasn’t been photoshopped (it hasn’t) surely she would be the one to illustrate what the absolute ideal full tail carriage should be?
