So Monty Jones, in his purple animal T shirt and classic Glen of Imaal Terrier sit, can wish everybody all the best of 2011 instead!
This is Bowie, the Glen of Imaal Terrier that went missing just before Christmas. The boy still isn’t home but paw prints have been found very close to where he was last seen that look very much like his so fingers crossed for the New Year.
If you live, or have friends or relatives, in the Holywell area of North Wales do ask them to keep an eye out.
Did you get the Susan Boyle CD in your Christmas stocking? What exactly does Glen of Imaal Terrier Emma think about it?
…and what better way to celebrate it in the Glen of Imaal Terrier world than with another list of dogs that have gone through the PRA DNA scheme.

A brindle Glen of Imaal Terrier dog went missing today from Pen-y-Ffordd, Holywell, North Wales. He is 5 months old(microchipped) and escaped from the back garden which backs onto fields. His pawprints were tracked but then nothing so it is hoped somebody took him in. Advice has been given re: Doglost, the Wrexham Leader, Chester Chronicle, North Clywd Animal Centre & vets. As 3 Glen breeders used to live in the area there should be a few vets left who will recognise a Glen if it is bought to a surgery. If you know of any people in the area please ask them to keep their eyes open!
In the UK there has been a Guide to the Glen of Imaal Terrier CD that has been around for a while and has been very well received. The Danish Glen Club has just done one and theirs is online. It is quite picture heavy so takes a while to download but it is worth the wait. It is interesting to see the change in topline (and what is considered correct) from a country that stopped docking many years ago
The big Winner shows mark the close of the exhibition season in many European countries and last weekend was the Swedish International. Best of Breed Glen of Imaal Terrier was Jeonty Flown Finnair.
