The recent Breed Record Supplement recorded only three Glen of Imaal Terriers registered in the recent quarter. Last time we only a had a few registered just happened to be session when a journalist did their totally wrong, and very damaging, piece on Glens being rarer than the Giant Panda. Some of us fought it hard and got it removed or retracted from all over but the damage had been done-for the next two years we still got people advertising Glens under the Giant Panda strapline and attempting to charge prices accordingly.
Back then it was just how the registrations had been applied for and it is the same for the March-June quarter. At the Association Show a group of Glen people were “totting up” pups that were around and between 25 and 30 were known. Some of these may not be registered with the Kennel Cllub but the big majority will be and the numbers will show later in the year.
