The big Eukanuba show cluster happens in America this weekend and for the first time a Glen of Imaal Terrier will be competing in the Agility there. Liberty’s Kiss of Kismet (Finnabair Let Freedom Ring/Liberty’s Hope) is owned by Lynn Denton of Arkansas.
The Glen Association Championship Show had, for the first time, a breed person officiating. Jane Withers had her first Glen of Imaal Terrier back in 1981 yet was only awarding Challenge Certificates for the first time; a sign that everything comes to those who wait! Best In Show was awarded to Ch/Bel Ch Brockland Brayhead Lad with Multi Ch Abberann Homer in Reserve. Ch/Ir Ch Abberann Ennya took the honours in the bitches with Ch Jeonty Fern Grass Reserve.
For the pedigree buffs it was an interesting piece of judging. Homer and Ennya (brother and sister) are from a half brother/sister mating with the common parent being Jeonty Tinker Boy Murphy at Brockland. Murphy was by Gingers Fashion By Malsville, a dog imported from Germany. Barney and Fern are closely related as their respective sires are brothers-both being great grandsons of “Terence” and their respective dams have him as a sire and a grandsire. Even the Best Veteran, Brockland Merrylegs For Bregorrey, fits the family as she is sister to the dam of Barney (Brayhead Lad) so lists Terence as her daddio!
We were missed!! No, it wasn’t the veterinary convention in Las Vegas that some thought we’d gone to but it would be nice to belong to an organisation that held events there. We’ll be back on track tomorrow and stuff, Glen of Imaal Terrier or otherwise, sent over the last few days will be here soon…promise!
The Glen Association Championship Show is tomorrow Saturday December 5th NOT Sunday 6th as some people are thinking!
The show is at Shenstone Village Hall, Barnes Road, Shenstone WS14 0LT and judging begins at 1.00pm by Jane Withers. There are 21 dogs entered and 20 bitches which makes a very respectable 41 in total.
If having your Glen eye tested don’t forget theKennel Club registration documents
Sometimes people don’t exactly tell the truth of where they live so maybe you didn’t know but then again maybe you did and decided he would be alright. Reading this he isn’t so maybe you should ring up and get the Glen of Imaal Terrier you bred back!
“Tilly’s Tale” by Harry Porter is the story of a rescue dog. Why are we suggesting Tilly? She is a real live animal & the belief is that she is a Bedlington/Glen of Imaal Terrier cross and looking at her picture she well might be. Tilly’s Tale is available from Amazon & she even has her own personal blog!
Pawnation has been following a Glen on the “journey to Westminster”. The latest report has just been published and there is an excellent video of the Glen in the ring at the bottom!
