GLEN OF IMAAL TERRIERS

PGD: 1) Romainville Brannigan at Brockland, wheaten, good strong head, dark eye, spot on mouth, well laid back, good balanced body, moved soundly. 2) Jeonty Highland Boy, well balanced, moving well. Just preferred bite of 1 & jacket at this moment. 3) Amhard Freebooter.

LD: 1) Johnny Be Good at Romainville, wheaten, correct size, good strong head, correct jaw, bite spot on, strong neck & well laid shoulders, good body & topline, well set tail, coat in very good condition, sound mover, RCC. 2) Jeonty Wannabee Bauer, wheaten, what a lovely looking dog when stood but let down so badly on the move which despite his handler’s determination to try & get him to move could not & therefore paid the price.

OD: 1) Ch/Int Ch Brockland Brayhead Lad, brindle, such a beautiful outline, so alert, in hard condition, such sound positive movement. I would like to thank the owner/breeder for showing him to me for a second time. He is a credit to the breed. CC & BOB. 2) Amhard Damson Sauce, brindle, shade smaller than 1. Sound head, good bite, extremely alert, good body & topline, tailset good, movement sound. Pushed for Reserve CC but decided in the Challenge it was playtime which cost him dearly.

JB: 1) Winnie Wanna Make Music by Jeonty, sweet head & very nice dark eye. Not alert today. Good neck & shoulder. Appeared to have an extended topline which is not helped by her tailset. Has wonderful free movement & positive attitude. Jacket coming on nicely.

LB: 1) Jeonty Maybee Daysee, wheaten, very feminine head, dark eye, nice bite. Not always alert. Strong neck, front & rear sound, super outline, well set happy tail. Her jacket could do with sorting out to fulfill the picture. CC. 2) Abberann Delta Lady at Norriss, very small bitch, dark eye, not very much underjaw. Front & rear okay. Not the best of toplines, waving her tail & enjoying her day out. Moved freely. Her coat needs attention.

OB; 1) Ch Jeonty Hasa ceilidh with Karensbrae, brindle, a true favourite of mine but today she is not as laert as I have seen her in the past. Still a lovely outline, with age her dentistry is well worn. Moved well & in good condition. Her young handler pulled out all the stops. RCC
