DNA profiling….

If any Glen of Imaal Terrier owner (or any breed owner come to that) is thinking getting their animals DNA profiled you need to get it done NOW as the Kennel Club are whapping up the price to £25.00 from next month. Yes of course the KC DO want dog people to do every health test going etc.etc. and this is the wonderful encouragement they give…..£10.00 added onto each and every procedure. Real joined up thinking!

The forms can be found on the Kennel Club website so get them downloaded, filled in and sent off in the next few days.


Westminster 2009 is into the history books now but the Glen of Imaal Terrier results must be mentioned here. This show is different from Crufts insofar as only the top 5 in each breed are actually invited to compete. This year it was Laura & Peg’s Dermot, Jo’s Rosie, Andy & Mary’s Riley, Colleen’s Finn & Jody’s Riley.

Best of Breed was Dermot (Am Ch Rainbow Springs Dermot RA NJP)

Best Opposite Rosie (Am Ch Finnabair Roisin O’Tipperary)

Award of Merit Riley (Am Ch Finnabair Rocket’s Red Glare)

Congratulations to all and when viewing it do appreciate Dermot. It may be Westminster, he may have a handler but he is a Glen so if he wants to sit down he will. You can’t get a better example of “Glen-ness” than that!
