It’s a re-vamp.

The Glen of Imaal Terrier Association have re-launched their re-vamped website on 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.

The youngsters again

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.

Have a look at this

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!
