and what else?

The Companion Show , just over two weeks now, is self explanatory but as everybody and everything, not just Glen of Imaal Terrier people and their dogs, are invited we are often getting a “and what else is there? Can I bring the family?” Of course the family is welcome. 

Just one example: A family came last year to have their dog’s eyes tested for the first time and as it was something new for them they all came to support the dog. As they left over three hours later they came to say what a marvellous afternoon they had had. They had been in the Companion Show, done agility, done a few games, won things on the raffle, bought a book, bought some sweets and had a cup of tea and a bun for four and still spent far less than £20.


Sister Act (well half-sisters really)

Over in America G.Ch Coleraine Mandalay Royalty added another first to her increasing portfolio. Curry became the first Glen of Imaal Terrier to take four consecutive Group placements in one weekend. Two Group 4, one Group 2 and then finished the weekend with a terrier Group First. She now has 27 Group Placements; is she the Glen with the most in the world?

Down in Florida Ch Finnabair Song O’My Heart also added to the breed profile with a Group 4.

Many congratulations to both.

Is there a drought?

The news has been speaking of a “drought in the east”. When you have to mow a large field a bit less rain is an advantage! The field will be fine for July 16th (the date of the Companion Show & FUNDay) and, even though some have booked in, there is still room for anybody who would like to bring a tent, motorhome or caravan. Some schools break up the day before so if anybody is thinking of doing the Lincolnshire coast for a few days…
