The Glen of Imaal Terrier Association have re-launched their re-vamped website on www.goita.co.uk Easier to navigate than the old one & it is nice to see a few more photographs. It was also good to discover that the Association had realised their mistake in only asking the Kennel Club to recognise the Optigen test for PRA and had followed it up later with a letter regarding Bochum. Even though the KC had already recognised the Bochum test following discussions with the EFG it never hurts to have back up! Hopefully the Association site will soon have everything fully re-vamped as the Judges Lists’ with quite a few wrong details and dead people is obviously still to be done.
Remember Charlotte Samuels from a week or so ago? Mother Linda sends the following :-Charlotte got on really well and got through, she is now in the Area Final in Portsmouth on Sunday 27th November, if she gets through this she will sing in the final at the O2!! she sang really well we were very proud of her. Also, because she got the most press coverage in her section she also won an exposure award which was a recording studio session, she is very excited about that.
We now all know that there is a DNA test PRA in Glen of Imaal Terriers but how many can really remember the journey to get there? Glen enthusiasts from all around the world who have been there since the beginning find it easy to get in a muddle so what about the new owner? What about somebody newly looking at Glens who hears about PRA but we have a DNA test….what does that tell them about it all? Have a look at this
We think it fits the bill rather well!
The Top Stud Dog and Brood Bitch rankings have been announced up to the end of September. In Glen of Imaal Terriers Donvaleset Black Velvet and Brockland Brenna Anne are the respective number ones and as there is only one Championship Show left for the breed….
The Glen of Imaal Terrier Association Championship Show Schedule is out. The judge is John Bunting and it is to be held at the Community Centre, Cottesmore, Oakham, LE15 7DH on Sunday December 5th, judging to commence at midday. They are 14 classes and schedules can be obtained from Anne Hardy email@example.com . Closing date is November 7th
Anybody who owns a Glen of Imaal Terrier knows it can do many, many things but generally everything is done to their interpretation. That interpretation rarely includes needlessly rushing about. Don’t believe us? Just take a look at this
Once, long ago, the EFG people had a summer picnic at Blackpool Championship Show and everybody wore hats. In America Morris & Essex is a show held every five years and in honour of its great past many exhibitors relect this with their outfits or headgear. Glen of Imaal Terrier people do like to dress up!

I should have written this letter ages ago, this is a massivethank you to all of the Glen of Imaal Terrier, Cesky and West Highland White Terrier owners/ exhibitors/friends for their continued support, whether it be in the breed ring, the junior handling, grooming and now my eventing on my young pony. If it wasn’t for the support, advice and encoragement given by so many of you I wouldn’t have achieved many of the things i have been lucky enough to have done. Also a big thank you must go to Spey Valley Dog Training Club and Banff, Moray and Nairn CC.
Thanks again everyone,
