…National Terrier 2012 Schedules are now available!
They haven’t moved the date of the show, still the first Saturday of April, so this is pre-planning and a half. The judge for Glen of Imaal Terriers is to be Bill Browne-Cole. That’s an interesting appointment for NT who often try to give breed specialists. Bill though, has judged Glens a few times. The first was back in the days when Birmingham City used to schedule the breed and jaws dropped when it was realised that the ultra-professional breeder of the ultra-prepared Wire Fox was doing us. For the first (and only) time there was actually a selection of Fox Terrier men ringside to see what Bill would do and what his reaction to us would be? Back then showing was quite a bit more formal than it is now, particularly in the handler breeds, but we knew everything would be alright when audibly from ringside came the comment of “Bill’s smiling!!”
